I’ve had this song on a mixtape for years and years, but only this week found out who it was by (I’d occasionally try and google the chorus, but what with it being “hey goodbye” google told me it was probably by Bananarama. I generally trust google, but it did seem like a stylistic departure for Siobhan, Keren and Dobbin).
But finally the mystery was solved*. It’s Hey Goodbye by Macha Loved Bedhead. Whom? Oh, you know. Macha Loved Bedhead. They did Robert De Niro’s Waiting, I think.
*How did I solve it? I asked Russ, who made the tape for me. I’m like Sherlock Holmes I am.
