Judy

By The Pipettes

The Pipettes are a girl group to truly polarise opinion with some embracing their polka-dotted dancing troupe and others writing in to well-known music papers to protest against... such unadulterated fun.

Fun, yes fun. We need it more than ever in these dreary and foreboding days. I thank The Pipettes profusely.

Gwenno's rich, lathery vocals kick off the single in style 'I knew a girl and her name was Judy' resonating with everyone who's lost contact with a dear friend; and then realised they were the best friend they ever had.

'You know your Mum is not that mean / But still you want to rip out her spleen' a perfect articulation of the frustration felt by many growing up: the lack of understanding on the part of both parent and child.

A song about the later, darker years of a teenage idol; a song about struggling to survive in the hierarchical world of high school society; a song about the hell parents and offspring withstand throughout life.

A song that means whatever you want it to.

Beautiful.
