A For­est (from Seven­teen Sec­onds, 1980)

“A For­est is prob­a­bly my favourite – it sounds like a film wait­ing to be made, al­most cer­tainly in black and white, and with glam­orous leads from the ’ 60s or early ’ 70s. There’s a ten­sion through­out the song that’s al­most hyp­notic. Great gui­tars, too. I re­mem­ber seeking out the 12- inch sin­gle in the hope it would be an ex­tended ver­sion. I never wanted it to end.”
