Seven Year Itch: 1982-1989 album at
Platinum Blonde's, "Beautiful (2010s)"
The Lyrics:
They say that life is an empty maze
with faith or something in between
Your eyes see what they want to see
in your world what do you see in me?
This video was released 4 years after the demise of Kenny MacLean. I think Mark was still feeling the sting of losing him so suddenly.

Platinum Blonde's, "It Doesn't Really Matter"
The Lyrics:
They fight in England and Northern Ireland
the police they try to hold us still
They can bleed us and they can feed us
but you know they'll never control our will
The lyrics of this song refer to the "Troubles" which was the political and social upheaval in England and Northern Ireland which went on from 1968-1998.
Lead singer Mark Holmes says that he never intended to make a political statement when he wrote this song but still it's one of Platinum Blonde's most famous, and unintentional, hits.

This song is upbeat yes but depressing as hell because of the song being about the "Troubles" in England and Northern Ireland from which Mark's family fled.
