The 1000 best songs in the world ever.
801-Madness-House Of Fun.
1982-Number 1 single
Best Bit-At 2.07. I have it on very good authority from someone who should be in the know that ‘Joe’ is in fact a name check for the fictional character Joe Sugden from the TV soap Emmerdale Farm,but he may have been fibbing to me.
This was the only Number 1 single for the group written by band members Lee Thompson and Mike Barson.The song is about coming of age.The lyrics tell the story of a boy on his 16th birthday attempting to buy condoms at a chemist,however the boy is misunderstood by the chemist as he uses slang euphemisms such as ‘box of balloons’ and ‘party hats with the coloured tips,’the chemist sends him to the house of fun which is a joke shop down the road.
