Released: November 2008
There aren’t many great songs about platonic male-female friendship, but this is one. Taking a dreamy, presumably mashed-up chat as lyrical source matter, singer Ed Macfarlane perfectly captures that mood of late-night, saucer-eyed scheming: “I’ll find you that French boy, you’ll find me that French girl”, he vows. “I promise, I’m on it”. Yeah, right. You know it’ll all be forgotten in the morning when the drugs wear off. But, in the moment, it all makes sense, and – for the listener as well as the two dreamers in the song - it all sounds impossibly romantic and exciting. (LL)
