[ESO] Perfect

In 1987, Fairground Attraction were signed to RCA, and released their first single, “Perfect“,on 28 March 1988. It was an immediate success, reaching number one in the UK, South Africa and Australia. The song was included on the band’s first album, The First of a Million Kisses, which was a blend of folk, jazz, country, and cajun elements (all but one of its songs being written by Nevin). Released in May 1988, it followed the success of “Perfect” by entering the UK Albums Chart at number three, and was eventually certified platinum. At the 1989 Brit Awards, “Perfect” won the award for best single, and The First of a Million Kisses for British Album.

Although they were popular in European countries, and toured the United States, their main success outside the UK was in Japan, where they toured in 1989 (a tour that produced their only live album, Kawasaki Live in Japan 02.07.89). In September 1989, however, during the recording of their second album, rumours of arguments circulated, and in January 1990 the band split up.

There go the lyrics:

I don’t …1… half-hearted love affairs
I need …2… who really cares
Life is too short to …4… silly games
I’ve promised …5… I won’t do that again

It’s got …6… perfect, it’s got to be worth it, yeah
Too many …7… take second best
Well, I won’t take …8… less
It’s got …6…, yeah, perfect

Young hearts are foolish, they …9… such mistakes
They’re …10… too eager to give their love away
Well, I have been foolish too many …11…
Now I’m …12…, I’m gonna get it right

It’s got …6… perfect, it’s got to be worth it, yeah
Too many …7… take second best
Well, I won’t take …8… less
It’s got …6…, yeah, perfect

Young hearts are foolish, they …9… such mistakes
They’re …10… too eager to give their love away
Well, I have been foolish too many …11…
Now I’m …12…, I’m gonna get it right

It’s got …6… perfect, it’s got to be worth it, yeah
Too many …7… take second best
Well, I won’t take …8… less
It’s got …6…, yeah, perfect

It’s got …6…, yeah, worth it
It’s got …6… perfect

    No quiero mas medios amores
    necesito a alguien a quien realmente le importe
    la vida es muy corta para tontear
    y me he prometido no hacerlo más

    Va a ser perfecto va a valer la pena, si
    mucha gente toma mejor al segundo
    bien, yo no voy a ser menos
    va a ser, si, perfecto

    Los corazones jóvenes son tontos, cometen muchos errores
    están demasiado ansiosos de que su amor llegue lejos
    bien, yo he sido una tonta demasiadas veces
    ahora he decidido que lo voy a hacer bien

    Va a ser perfecto tiene que valer la pena, si
    mucha gente toma mejor al segundo
    bien, yo no voy a ser menos
    va a ser, si, perfecto

    va a ser perfecto.

      Yo no quiero medio affairs
      Yo necesito alguien que me cuide realmente
      La vida es muy corta, un tonto juego
      Me prometo a mi misma, no hacer eso otra vez.

      Tiene que ser perfecto, tiene que valer la pena, sí
      Mucha gente coge lo segundo mejor
      Bien, no coger menos nada
      Tiene que ser perfecto, tiene que valer la pena, sí.

      Los corazones jóvenes sin tontos, ellos haces muchos errores.
      Ellos estan demasiado ansiosos de coger el amor lejano
      Bien, yo he estado tonta durante algun tiempo
      Ahora yo estoy concentrado, voy a hacerlo bien
