Song of the Day: Patrick Wolf - The Magic Position

What would happen if David Bowie and Bryan Ferry had a love child? Well, I think it might have happened. And it might be Patrick Wolf.

I read some good reviews of his album The Magic Position, but since I couldn't find it on vinyl, I settled for buying the 7-inch of the title track. As soon as I put it on the turntable, I was hooked - the xylophone (I think) melding into the strings, then just the beat (with handclaps!) and some sort of horn, the melodramatic delivery - just a great pop song.
