Music Video: Communards–“Disenchanted”

I'm feeling uninspired and uneasy today. It took me ages to think of a song to feature today.  I spent the whole week listening to The Bambi Molesters but I featured them last week so what was I to do?  When I realised I was essentially feeling disenchanted, I knew which song I had to feature.

I fell in love with the Communards in 1986.  Such was the depth of my obsession that my mother crafted a birthday cake emblazoned with the album cover of the Communards’ eponymous debut album.  The first single I fell in love with from the album was their cover of “Don’t Leave Me This Way”, but I loved “Disenchanted”, “So Cold The Night” and “You Are My World” too.  Twenty-five years feels like such a short time but it isn’t really.  I guess it is only fitting that I feature this song in my birthday week and I am quite certain the melancholy and disenchantment will lift shortly.


Communards – “Disenchanted”

Communards (1985)

So, boy where you go, what you do,
Hey there boy what is wrong with
No future, no hope, just broken
You spend your days wondering why

I'll be your friend, I'll be around
I'll be everything you need
I'll be your friend, I'll be around
I'll be everything you need

Hey young man, why you cry
Don't you know, you've got to try
A little bit harder, you've got to stand
On your own two feet
Never let them drag you down
Hey there boy
This prejudice and ignorance we can

Disenchanted angry young man (x4)
I'll never let you down
Never let you down

So boy now you know what to do,
hey there boy don't be blue
There's future, there's hope, hope for
Hey young man just believe in what
you do.

Pride is something good for you
Believe in yourself.
