Bad Day

At one point this attempt at a Beatles song as played by My Bloody Valentine was considered for release as a single, but in the end the honour went to “There’s No Other Way”, and taking into account that song’s chart performance it probably was a good choice. Nonetheless, “Bad Day” has the word “hit” written all over it; relentlessly melodic, good to dance to and easy to sing along with, baggy drums, wahwah guitars, organs and a melodica to add a little colour. It’s difficult to imagine Leisure without it (though it’s even harder to imagine the album without “Sing”, and that didn’t stop the Americans from dropping the record’s one undisputed masterpiece in favour of the vastly inferior “I Know”… but I’ll bitch about that at a later date).

In 1991, a “Leisurely Mix” was released on a rare 12″ promo that nowadays costs a lot more than it’s worth.
