A few months ago, I was driving to dinner and listening to XM when this gem from 1985 came on. It may have been a few years since I had last listened to Double's "Captain of her Heart" but it took only a few moments to remember and sing along to one of the cheesiest choruses of all time.
The lyrics, while simplistic and a bit on the shallow end of the intellectual pool, do a fine job of illustrating the tale of a lonely woman who waits for a lover gone astray. Unfortunately for the aforementioned lover, the woman decides enough is enough and, I can only assume, starts looking around for a man of a higher rank. Obviously not a tune for those people in long-distance relationships.
"Captain of Her Heart" may have its moments of ridicule, like how often vocalist Kurt Maloo enjoys finding words that rhyme with "heart," but it definitely has a place in the always entertaining genre of 80's pop. Hope you enjoy the soprano saxaphone!
