Song for Whoever

A song that practically defines the term "sugar-coated bullet" is the Beautiful South's superlative "Song for Whoever", a number two hit from way back in 1989. This deceptively sweet ditty, armed with a delightfully hummable melody, masks one of the most bitter invectives aimed against the commercial aspects of the music industry ever laid down on record. Check out the humorously anecdotal video, watch out for the parade of so-called pop stars auditioning to be the band's lead singer, and have a guess at who (or what) eventually turned out be the chosen one.
