When the beats run dry there's gonna be some blood (Starsailor) #531

Starsailor This Time/ Push The Button  (EMI, 2006)

The jury is still out on Starsailor. For me they are utterly rooted in the Britpop era. That's short hand for 'they are a somewhat dated entity' in the same way that the eighties production (cough) values dated so many of that era's songs.

Still - there are definite elements of worthiness about Starsailor and this song in particular. The poppy approach, the vocals, and the lyrics are all rating on the positive-o-metre.

Hidden gem: A live run through of Push The Button is pleasant but hardly a gem.
