International Bright Young Thing

I was always a big Jesus Jones fan thanks to their first album “Liquidizer” in 1989, long before that horrible “Right Here, Right Now” came out. (Okay, it’s not horrible, but I don’t think it’s their best work.) I was a big fan of their third album “Perverse” in 1993, but I don’t remember it getting much play here in the States. Granted, I had moved from Orlando to Arkansas by that point, and I’m fairly certain nothing of theirs played on any Country or Christian music stations.

There’s a line in this song that has stuck with me since I first heard it: “I’m so tired I can hardly think so I feel instead and let you loose inside my head…”. That tired feeling has happened to me many times over the years, and that line always bubbles into my mind. Odd how lyrics do that.

I really like the genre of music this fits into. It’s kind of pop-y rock-y and kind of electronic-y. It’s what I think of when I think of the music from the 1990s that I enjoyed.

All that said, I present you with Jesus Jones’ “International Bright Young Thing”:

I don’t particularly care for the video for this song. It is quite… bouncy. And by “bouncy” I mean pogo stick and not “Shiny Happy People” bouncy.

Until next time...

  1. I fell in love with Jesus Jones (Doubt?) when I fell in love with Brian Swift my study/lab partner in college
