Hard to imagine Doves getting a Number Three hit now, isn't it? And although 'There Goes The Fear' achieved the feat largely due to some rather crafty single pricing strategies, it's hard to argue that it doesn't belong in the realms of the 'featuring Chipmunk'. It was more of a journey than a song – a dance music-inspired canter with that twinkling intro riff, as Jimi Goodwyn relayed the emotions of a man coming to terms with life passing him by and the feeling of melancholic undertow that accompanied it. Sadly stunning. (JF)
