Song of the Day - Wonderful Life

Hurts - Wonderful Life
Album: Happiness (2010)

It's so 80s it... hurts? Admit it, you wish you could pun like me. 'Wonderful Life' is a pretty good track which everyone can see is influenced hugely by 80s synthpop. And nothing says 80s more than using a girl with a name like Susie as your central character (my favourite is Gina from Bon Jovi's 'Livin' On A Prayer'). Hurts have attracted quite the star following throughout 2010, with Kylie Minogue being one of their biggest admirers. She collaborated with them on the track 'Devotion' and also covered 'Wonderful Life' for the amazing BBC Live Lounge. As usual, both songs are posted here for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
