Song of the Day, November 27: Date Stamp by ABC

ABCDateToday’s song is Date Stamp by ABC. It appears on their stunning debut, Lexicon of Love. The album is a strong song cycle about the joys and perils of romance. Date Stamp appears as a warning after the first blush of new love. Over the tight-knit playing of the band, singer Martin Fry ponders what could happen next, landing on the conclusion that “Love has no guarantee.” With beautiful harmony vocals underscoring his doubt and hope, the song is a highlight of a lovingly constructed package.

Enjoy this wonderful pop gem today.
