It’s funny when pieces of pop culture seem to completely bypass you until you discover them years after they were initially popular. As a keen observer of the popular culture I almost feel mildly insulted when this happens. Almost.
Such is my story with Nerina Pallot’s “Alien.” It’s a fantastic début de millennium pop song that I have absolutely no memory of but am currently enjoying rather a lot. In all fairness, this was back in the – obviously frightful – days before Popjustice, which would have undoubtedly alerted me to the release of such a lovely piece of pop music. The video’s not bad either!
Revel, my friends, revel in this blast from the past.
