The Sweet September Rain

One of my favorite pop discs of all time is Prefab Sprout's Two Wheels Good, excellently produced by Thomas Dolby in 1985. Every review notes the album's real title is Steve McQueen, which is the case everywhere outside the United States; problems with the McQueen estate translated into the title Two Wheels Good here.

Every best tracks list should include the first four: Faron, Bonny, Appetite and When Love Breaks Down. It's a mellow work; jazzy, dreamy, introspective, earnest and poetic. The inspiration for this post is my stumbling upon a video for When Love Breaks Down on YouTube (a site that seems to have no shortage of visual surprises).
