Everything Everything - 'Duet'

Uplifting? Yes. Duet? No.

Woah there, EE, this ain’t no duet. Just as Alanis Morissette wasn’t being ‘Ironic’, 10CC really were in love and Madonna was nothing at all ‘Like A Virgin’, this is going in my ‘misleadingly named songs’ dossier. On the plus side, it’s a belter, lifted along on insistent strings and pounding drums. The best post-apocalyptic love song since the Mayans turned out to be wrong.
