It may reflect how truly middle class i am that only Cool Runnings, Titanic and Mike Skinner get me all quivery lipped like a single woman watching Bridget Jones, but thems the facts and probably the reason I’ve always been obsessed with this track. ‘Blinded By The Lights’ is an anxiety inducing, bass filled magic carpet ride that will have you squirming and dancing in equal measures. Skinner has the skill to cast reality upon his tracks and like any great piece of art it floods you with emotions, good and bad. Amazingly it has been 8 years since it graced the UK top 10 and probably 10 years since most people heard the devastating key change which throws the track into an musical panic attack. Hopefully i have changed that.
