XTC - Senses Working Overtime (1982)

This is such a great tune! It features a simple tea-time chorus, but is played with great musicianship and has a rather novel sounding verse, too.

XTC were active between 1978 and 2005 and during this period released thirteen studio albums, nine of them making it into the UK Top 40. The English band from Swindon had four hit singles during the eighties, with Senses Working Overtime being their most successful, reaching #10 in the UK. The song featured on the 1982 album English Settlement, and the single helped it to be come their biggest-selling album, reaching #5 in the UK (certified Silver) and #48 in the U..S.
