Throwback Thursday: Chaka Demus & Pliers – Murder She Wrote


Here heralds the beginning of a new segment called Throwback Thursday, where we celebrate some of the best songs you had temporarily forgotten about. The first song to kick off this new series is Murder She Wrote by Chaka Demus and Pliers, which you will all remember from your childhoods as being the theme tune to a classic murder mystery series starring Angela Lansbury [citation needed]. I requested for this to be played at my friend’s house party on New Year’s Eve last year, only to find that my boyfriend’s friend had never heard of Chaka Demus and Pliers before, which I found deeply troubling on a psychological level very surprising.

As the lyrics clearly state, this one is dedicated to the girls with the angel faces and the devil hearts.
