Cool love song for the week: Perfect by Fairground Attraction

Let me take you back to my high school days with “Perfect“, a cute love song by (the now-defunct) Eddi Reader-fronted Scottish acoustic pop band Fairground Attraction. The song is actually their first single from their debut album “The First of a Million Kisses” and was launched in April 1988. It was an immediate success, reaching number one on the UK Singles Chart, and won the award for best single at the 1989 BRIT Awards.

Don’t let its seemingly mainstream popularity deter you from using it in your wedding though because it’s an earnestly-sung really sweet and bouncy track that you and your new husband, not to mention your guests, will surely enjoy swaying to. Apart from how beautiful the vocals are, the lyrics are gold too:

It’s got to be perfect
It’s got to be worth it, yeah
Too many people take second best
But I won’t take anything less
It’s got to be, yeah, perfect.

Listen to it here.
