Michael Head Introducing The Strands "Something Like You" from their 1998 masterpiece "The Magical World Of The Strands".

Fantasy








And the world is full of lovely happy smiling faces
Something like you, yeah
And someone said the world is up for auction sale
I think it's true
So come on get in we know how it's been
And we've skated for so long
So come on get in

And all the times we're coming to and from
The town we're in and the fishing's free, yeah
The trouble is we wouldn't pay the ferry man
Something like me, so come on climb in
Cause we know how it's been
And we've skated for so long
So come on get in

Now so come on get in
Cause we know how it's been
And we've skated for so long
So come on get in

All in all we're the same and we're alright
Cause you're not lazy drives me crazy
I believe in you forever

A leading proponent of the "quiet pop" movement of the early 1980s, the Pale Fountains formed in Liverpool, England in 1981. Led by singer/songwriter and guitarist Michael Head, the group — which also included bassist Chris McCaffrey, drummer Thomas Whelan and former Dislocation Dance trumpeter Andy Diagram — debuted in 1982 on the Operation Twlight label with the single "(There's Always) Something on My Mind," which generated such a posititve buzz that they were immediately signed by Virgin for the then-staggering sum of 150,000 pounds.

Em 1997 uma surpresa surgiu no final do ano. Michael Head, vocalista da banda dos anos 80, The Pale Fountains e depois de Shack, surge com um album editado numa editora francesa, a Megafone que, embora ouvido apenas por quatro jornalistas do semanário inglês de música, New Musical Express, foi suficiente para figurar entre os 50 melhores. O album chamava-se “The Magical World Of The Strands”. Um ano depois um single foi extraído do mesmo: “Something Like You”. É uma das mais bonitas canções da década e um momento único de inspiração de Michael.
