Sitting on the couch uploading files this evening, I’ve been listening to a VH1 program called One Hit Wonders. XTC just came up for “Dear God“, and VH1 claims it was their only hit in the US. What about “Senses Working Overtime”, “Making Plans for Nigel”, “The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead”, or “Mayor of Simpleton”? As a 15-year-old who bought the 45 of “Dear God” at the mall the day after I heard it on the radio, I take offense at that characterization.
