The Blow Monkeys – It doesn’t have to be this way

Talent and style. This were The Blow Monkeys. Maybe not worldwide famous like other 80s icons, but I can assure that Dr. Robert and his group had plenty of style, talent, and class. You can hear it in this very sophisticated pop, borderline to jazz, you can see it in this fantastic video, full of British humour if you think that the song comes from a concept album protesting again Margaret Thatcher and the austerity that she imposed to the United Kingdom.

And actually this album was called “She Was Only a Grocer’s Daughter”, and of course it was a fantastic success in England.
Genius stuff, no doubt. And no doubt that in the 80s talent was probably not always showing up, but there was definitely plenty of it around! “It doesn’t have to be this way” is one of their most popular hits, and shows it all, confirming all the good vibes we had one year before with “Digging your scene“.

Well I just about have enough of the sunshine
Hey! What did I hear you say?
You know, it doesn't have to be that way
