Chant No 1
by Spandau Ballet

I checked the time, it was almost time
A curious smell, an intangible crime
I'm washing my clothes, but the stain still grows
Cover your eyes, the stain still shows

I feel the gaze against my skin
I feel the gaze against my skin
I know this feeling is a lie
I know this feeling is a lie
There's a guilt within my mind
There's a guilt within my mind
I know this feeling is a lie
I know this feeling is a lie

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

Oh, I should question not ignore
Oh, I should question not ignore
Songs are always buried deep
Songs are always buried deep
There's a lion in my arms
There is a motion in my arm
Oh I should question not ignore
I should believe and not ignore

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

You go down, down
Pass the talk of town
You go down Greek street
Then it's underground
Well it's Soho life
For this mobile knife
It's the place to shoot
Friday night beat route

I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on
I don't need this pressure on

Still so underrated. Real English soul-funk. SB were solid musicians as well as top songwriters

Tony Wright

"My favourite Spandau Ballet song"

Same here.

Bryan Ferry - Tony Hadley - Martin Fry are quite a line of singers from the 80's.

This is still so relevant. Great writing and musicianship. I recall being on holiday with my mates, 1981 - Blazers nightclub in Eastbourne, pissed up and leaping to the dance floor to shake it in rhythm when this came on. Think I frightened the locals, not a great mover but I was enthusiastic

Among the best they did, alongside She Loved Like Diamond, The Freeze, Glow and Shake Me Down

I.M Love

They are so underrated as a serious musical force..This album is so innovative and the layering of sounds is quite lovely.

Shawn Hardy

I danced my ass off to this album. It's still wonderful!
