90s Jams #84: Teenage Fanclub "Alcoholiday" (1991)

Arguably Teenage Fanclub’s finest album, Bandwagonesque contains a host of great songs, but there are few finer than the perfect sunshine pop of “Alchoholidy”. Driven on a swell of guitars that immediately bring to mind The Byrds, the song contains a meditative, thoughtful lyric – “There are things I want to say/But I don’t know if they will be to you” – and an infectious, and wonderfully light melody. Indeed, the song is typical of many of Teenage Fanclub’s finest moments, and “Alcoholiday” manages to merge the best bits of The Byrds, Big Star and The Beatles into one glorious burst of inspiration. - Allmusic
