Here’s a dancy little disc conjured up from the brain of John Lydon or, as he’s better known from his day with the Sex Pistols, Johnny Rotten.  Don’t expect any of the Sex Pistols sound here, however.  The Pistols’ punk-in-the-trunk makes way for the supremely 80′s fashion-blasted post-punk slathered in these tracks.  Well, I guess it’s post-punk.  A lot of things came after punk: Miley Cyrus, Y2K, Crest White Strips.  I suppose it’s post-ragtime as well.  Music genre names are retarded.

Anyway, it’s a carnivalesque song dressed up in a hot pink polyester blouse with large foam shoulder pads.  The remixes are a bit more fun than the original but the album cut is peppy enough in its own right.  I also have another full length album entitled Happy? from 1987 by Public Image Ltd which strangely doesn’t contain any songs with its namesake.  Maybe it will make it’s way on here with a bit of encouragement.

Check the original mix.
