Anglo For Your Ear: Martine McCutcheon’s “Perfect Moment”
Before Martine McCutcheon played Hugh Grant‘s love interest in Love, Actually (what happened to her film career, btw?), she was a major pop star in the UK. In 1999, she scored a No. 1 hit with “Perfect Moment.” There are few better indicators that a song will be total cheese than having the word “moment” in the title, and this overproduced ballad is pure Velveeta. But it’s surprisingly effective cheese. Your next guilty pleasure awaits.
