"The Mating Game"
To my mind, 1982's Eligible Bachelors is only slightly off Boutique's high bar. It's a fuller, more confident indie pop sound compared to the early, brittle post-punk pop. "The Mating Game" is improbably dirtier AND catchier than "The Lighter Side of Dating." Neither of those things should be possible.
"Jet Set Junta"
I've talked before about how politics mixed into my pop has left a sour taste, but this one is all sugar. Wit, subtlety, satire, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.
