I Need Some Fine Wine and You, You Need to Be Nicer

The Cardigans

21st September 2005 (single), 17th October 2005 (LP)🇸🇪

Imagine coming up with a title and lyrics this good when English isn’t even your first language.

This is not only one if my all time favourite song titles, it also features one of my favourite videos.

You could think on first listening that maybe the song is about an abusive relationship, but I don’t think it is. It’s more about a stale one - they’ve got older and there is still love, they’re sticking together through the good times and bad.

Maybe they don’t have the same animal passion they once did. Until a few Stellas are sunk...

Baby you’re foul in clear conditions
But you’re handsome in the fog
So I need some fine wine,
And you, you need to be nicer
