[17] James, ‘She’s A Star’

Well well well. Who saw this coming?  Kicking off with the guitar signature from the end of ‘Torn’, segueing into that bit with Keeley Hawes (as a little girl) being spun around, it’s a smorgasboard of pop culture references. I think they got to the guitar thing first, though. Imbruglia’s a magpie.

What to say about James that hasn’t been said? Have they split up? Why? Anyway, this song could be great if only it had a proper chorus, but they were never good at choruses. They were good at atmospherics, rousing lyrics, swooping guitars, funny dancing and getting students to trip over their stupid mates.

Junior just kept twirling around with her mum until she threatened to throw up. Kids will use anything as a weapon.
