Boomtown Rats: Rat Trap



Dame Edna once said of Mother Teresa: "She does a lot for charity, but she's let herself go, hasn't she?"

You could say much the same of Bob Geldof. Before he started saving the world from hunger he made some great records. Though looking at this now, even allowing for the fact that the performance is clearly being mimed, he does come over as a bit of a poseur.

"Rat Trap" reminds me of my university days. Enjoy.

Thank you.

I did.

Well I always liked this, not so much for itself but because it is one of a handful of songs which seems like an unconscious self-parody of all pop music.
