25 Days – 25 Songs #5 A Song That Is Often Stuck In Your Head


Don’t Marry Her by The Beautiful South

I absolutely love The Beautiful South!! Their songs are so very English, with wonderfully clever, and quite often rude, lyrics, all wound into a beautiful melody. This particular track is permanently stuck in my head, and I find myself singing it several times a day, without realising I am doing so, until someone says “Again?!!” 


About Thewitch

Nikki is a half centenarian, an eternal teenager, and mother of four geniuses. In her previous incarnation, she was a famous Parisian courtesan, and witch, thus explaining her habit of talking to the moon in french. Due to her inability to control her thought/speech processes, she writes about life, love, laughter and anything else that happens to spill out. Those of a strong constitution can read more on her About page.

  1. So, it’s 5 a.m. here and I’m wide awake so I was catching up on the blogs I follow. The link in your post didn’t work and since I have never heard of this group (and apparently don’t need to sleep at all), I googled the group and listened to 3 of their songs. I like them! Thanks for sharing this group and I will definitely be listening to more.


    • Hi Kat!! Have sorted the link, just in case you didn’t catch this one!! My other huge favourite of their’s is Perfect 10, Lyrics are fabulous and a bit naughty!! Previously the group were known as the Housemartins, and had a really good track called Happy Hour. Glad you like them, I think they were hugely underrated!! 🙂


  2. I used to LOVE the Beautiful South. I discovered them in 1989 when I was in London for a semester abroad. I’ve seen them live a few times – they’re great performers. I really love groups that have more than one lead singer (in this case – 2 men and one woman). Song for Whoever is one of my favs! Thanks for reminding me about them.


    • Must admit, they are a rediscovered treasure for me!! Also loved their previous incarnation, The Housemartins. Who gave birth to Fat Boy Slim as well!!
