Q is for Queen of Hearts

Fucked Up's 'Queen of Hearts' was by far one of the standout songs from last year and the video accompanying it is one of my favourites of all time. Taken from the hardcore opera collection 'David Comes To Life' - a concept album detailing a boy meets girl story in Thatcher's '80s Britain - this song captures the moment the main characters, David and Veronica, meet for the first time.

The album's basically a love story with really rough edges, with frontman Damien Abraham's gruff vocals perfectly balanced with those of bassist Sandy Miranda. It's an utter beauty, check it here...


  1. I'm not familiar with the group, seeing as I am a classical music lover, but, I just wanted to stop by from the challenge to say 'hello'!
