Song of the Day (A-Z): The Jesus And Mary Chain – Just Like Honey

Day 10 (J) & we’re having a look at the feedback-drenched bubblegum pop of Psychocandy-era The Jesus And Mary Chain. Featuring a young Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream) on drums, Just Like Honey riffs on the same drum beat as the Phil Spector produced Be My Baby by the Ronnettes. We might take the marriage of abrasive guitar noise with ’60’s influenced pop melodies a little for granted now, but when Just Like Honey (and earlier singles like Never Understand) came a long, it was a breath of fresh air which revitalised the Post-Punk landscape.

Listen to the girl
As she takes on half the world
Moving up and so alive
In her honey dripping beehive
Beehive
It’s good, so good, it’s so good
So good

Walking back to you
Is the hardest thing that
I can do
That I can do for you
For youI’ll be your plastic toy
I’ll be your plastic toy
For you

Eating up the scum
Is the hardest thing for
Me to do

Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey 
Just like honey
Just like honey
