Into the Groovy #48 - "You don't Understand"

Remember back in the 1990's, when seemingly every British alternative band was pumping out gloriously Groovy dance rock? With the energetic beat of "You Don't Understand," guitar-pop band The House on Love did just that. Known for popular tunes such as "I don't Know Why I Love You" and "Shine On," The House of Love was formed by guitarist/vocalist Guy Chadwick and guitarist Terry Bickers in the mid-1980's. Bickers soon split (he's back in the fold at the moment) to form the underrated Levitation, leaving the perfectionist Chadwick as dictator. From their 1992 album Babe Rainbow, "You don't Understand" is an undeniable piece of Groovy dance rock (and, according to Wikipedia, one of only two House of Love tunes not written entirely by. Chadwick--he shares writing credit with producer Warne Livesey.) The song was a minor hit, peaking at #9 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, yet somehow failed to achieve the mass acceptance of earlier hits. Too bad, because "You don't Understand" is one of the band's best, and from a group that, under Chadwick's tutelage, never released a bad song.

I am not familiar with this band at all but alternative radio here in the 90s had moved away from UK groups and all was grunge. This band has a throwback to the 60s sound as You Don't Understand echoed The Who, Kinks and Pink Floyd to my ear.

You might have seen "I don't Know Why I Love You" on 120 Minutes, if you watched it. They showed it on occasion. Great band that really never took off over here for some reason.

Well, have to take a listen and determine if I recall "You Don't Understand." Off I go!

I agree with @JohnRoberts -- by the 90s it was all Nirvana all the time, and "college" or "underground" radio had forgotten there were other things out there.

I agree. I will admit I do like the overplayed "Smells Like Teen Spirit," but I lost interest after that. I just couldn't get into them.

They really never got the due they deserved, especially over here.
