Madness – Night Boat To Cairo

December 11th, 2013 by Fitz, Visions, 0 Comments

I kinda like this quirky, lo-fi video of Madness’ “Night Boat to Cairo”. Musically I find the melody rather flat but the lyrics are pretty good:

“It’s just gone noon half past monsoon
On the banks of the river Nile
Here comes the boat only half-afloat
Oarsman grins a toothless smile”

There’s something about how dashed off and rough the whole absurd production is that makes it work.
