"Another Flavour" as written by David Gavurin and Harriet Wheeler....
Fashion, the timing's all wrong
They taste another flavour
And pretty soon you're gone
Fashion, this time it's too late
You knew you'd have to pay for this one day

He loves me now, he loves me not
He loves me once again
Usual story, another surprise

(Oh yeah, ooh yeah)
Fashion, this time it's alright
They tickle you with a feather
They tell you you're sublime
Turn on - to each their own
Usual story, another surprise

(Oh yeah, ooh yeah)
Fashion - the timing was wrong
Your friends are fair weather
You knew it all along
Turn on - to each their own
It's doing my mind in another surprise

(Oh yeah, ooh yeah)
Don't let them black you out for the evening
Sad-happy sufferer no no no
Don't let them crack you
Try not to feel it
As long as they're watching your show this time

    General CommentThis one started life as an instrumental - specifically the theme tune to the ill-fated BBC TV comedy programme "Newman & Baddiel In Pieces". A spin-off from the critically-acclaimed "The Mary Whitehouse Experience", the show was panned by the critics and Rob and David went their separate ways.

    The lyrics seem to allude to the above story - but honestly (and I say this as someone who is besotted with Harriet's voice), the melody and words feel bolted -on and I reckon it should have stayed an instrumental.

    My InterpretationContrary to popular opinion in these parts, I actually rather like this song about changing fashions and being NME cover stars one week and bargain bin the next.

    As turricaned mentioned, this originally showed up as pretty much the only decent thing about Newman & Baddiel’s comedy show (well, apart from Rob Newman, anyway), and the lyrics may well allude to them.

    However, the music scene and culture in general changed massively in both gaps between the Sundays’ albums (Stock Aitken Waterman → rave culture → Madchester → shoegaze → grunge → Britpop…), so I guess it’s more likely that they were writing about their own experiences and anxieties of being accepted by the music business. (I was struck at how fresh they still sounded when Summertime appeared from nowhere in 1997.)
