Forgotten Songs! – This Week – Same Jeans

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them very rarely that they can create a sense of nostalgic for you, the listener. So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.

Same Jeans – The View

Today we are going to look at a single that was played alot in the early noughties in indie music clubs. Welcome to Same Jeans by The View. The single was released on the 15th January 2007, it was written by Kyle Falconer and Kieran Webster and produced by Owen Morris. The track was the third single from their debut album Hats Off To The Buskers and was released under the record label of 1965.

The song came to notice for many people when Radio 1 DJ Jo Whiley made the Dundee based band song the Record of The Week. The track entered the UK top 20 at position 11 solely on downloads a week before it was officially released. In the week it was released officially it went to number 3 in the UK charts, number 1 in Scotland and number 14 in Europe.

This song I used to find an interesting listen as it is structured really differently throughout. It is one of those tracks that sort of defines the indie world at the time.
