Something Changed 48: Sit Down

Like the good lady, in the 1990s I had a bit of a soft spot for James.

Sit Down was the band’s biggest hit.

An acquaintance of mine once complained he hated that when it came to the middle eight of this song people listening to it would start to sit down. As if it was the group’s fault.

My feeling is that artists aren’t responsible for the way people react to their creations. George Orwell couldn’t have foreseen folk saying, “it’s like 1984, isn’t it?”

James: Sit Down

This is the originally released version from 1989. It doesn’t have quite the bite of the later release and the video is a bit unimaginative.
