Review

December, 10th 2016
Madness made a song named "Night Boat To Cairo" and this is indie pop. Strange melody with accompaniment of saxophone leaves mixed feelings. On the one hand, you want to get smooth sound from the pop. But this song does not do it. It is more like some sort of self-indulgence, this composition is rough and inharmonious. It has a lot of changes in the rhythm and so it does not receives from this, but loses. The video is even more crazy. Reference: "Night Boat to Cairo" - Wikipedia

Night Boat to Cairo Song Lyrics


It's just gone noon
Half past monsoon
On the banks of the river Nile
Here comes the boat
Only half-afloat
Oarsman grins a toothless smile
Only just one more
To this desolate shore
Last boat along the river Nile
Doesn't seem to care
No more wind in his hair
As he reaches his last half mile
The oar snaps in his hand
Before he reaches dry land
But the sound doesn't deafen his smile
Just pokes at wet sand
With an oar in his hand
Floats off down the river Nile
Floats off down the river Nile
(All aboard, night boat to Cairo!)
(Night boat to Cairo!)
