Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day

Over the past week both JC and Ctel have blogged about the indiepop band Dubstar. Although I was never a fan of the band it got me raking through the cd racks and cupboard trying to find a track that years ago I argued with L was by them only to be proven wrong, a very rare occasion in this house I should add.

But after about an hour scouring the racks I was no further forward, then L came in and remembered straight away, Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day by Morcheeba.

I still find it hard to believe  that this out and out pop song is by them. My previous experience of the band was through two early twelves, Trigger Hippie and Tape Loop which were very firmly in the “Trip Hop” genre.

Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day was released in 1999, four years after the Dubstar album and reached the giddy heights of number 34 in the UK charts, a fact of which I would not have been aware of at the time as by this then I had almost lost interest in the charts.  It’s a rather good piece of pop music.

    Sorry Ctel, this is what happens when you can't get on to your own laptop due to the other half's obsession with Facebook!
