Burnside Album Details
McEvoy, Eleanor, I'd Rather Go Blonde
I'd Rather Go Blonde features eleven new songs, nine of which were penned by McEvoy, one with Beautiful South man Dave Rotheray and a cover of Sam Cooke's "Good Times". This limited edition also includes 'Take a Little Look' with Polish a capella band, Banana Boat. I'd Rather Go Blonde, the eighth album in a twenty year career that has seen McEvoy establish herself as one of Ireland's most accomplished singer / songwriters. Never one to shy away from the big issues, this album sees McEvoy tackling themes such as alienation, hypocrisy, recent Irish history and romance. The songs are typified by a lyrical élan and often leavened with a touch of humor - "For Avoidance Of Any Doubt" features a plaintive soul using her solicitor to berate an absent lover for not returning calls, and the title track is built around a phrase that just made McEvoy laugh!
