Touch

The b-side to “11 O’Clock Tick Tock”, it’s naturally not as memorable, and it sounds somewhat generically early-80s U2 and, at some points, just generically early-80s. It’s not a bad song, though – just one that doesn’t really inspire or do much. Where the best songs are ones where you can remember not just the lyrics, but the guitar parts, bassline or even the drumbeat, with this all such elements will vanish in five minutes.

Its opening (and nonsensically conversational) lyrics, though, (Thank you/Don’t mention it/I’m pleased to meet you/Don’t think I’m very good at this) are weirdly similar to R.E.M.’s “Pop Song 89”. I’ll reasonably assume coincidence, given the sheer rarity of the song, and it’s not quite as eerie as the ZooropaKid A thing.
