Alvin Stardust – Jealous Mind

I was five in 1973. Which was lucky because British pop music at that time started to become fun again. This was partly achieved by it harking back to the simpler, golden age of rock ‘n’ roll. It helped, of course, that some of its practitioners – such as Alvin Stardust and Gary Glitter – had been around the first time. They knew their stuff.

I’m not going to make any great claims for this song except to say that it’s the perfect mix of glam rock flash and rock ‘n’ roll heartache. And despite his vocal and visual poses, Alvin sings it like he means it, especially with lines like: “You could be out with him and I would never know”.
