‘Perfect ‘ by Fairground Attraction
My choice for the letter P is the 1988 hit ‘Perfect' by Fairground Attraction which is from the group's multi-platinum selling debut album, The First of a Million Kisses.
Fairground Attraction were a London based folk and soft rock band that won two Brit awards in 1989 but unfortunately split the following year. The lead vocalist Eddi Reader subsequently launched a solo career. “Perfect” was written and composed by the group’s guitarist Mark E. Nevin.
As per normal it is the words that attracted me to the song and 1988/9 were special years for me.
“ Life is too short to play silly games
I have promised myself I won't do that again
It is got to be perfect
It is got to be worth it, Yeah
Too many people take second best
Well I won't take anything less
It is got to be….Yeah
