“One Thing Leads to Another” by The Fixx: Music Review


Why don’t they do what they say? Wait, what are they saying?

“One Thing Leads to Another” The Fixx’s 1983 single of Reach the Beach, is an interesting song.

Lyrically, it’s pretty stupid.

Musically, it’s pretty stupid.

Combine the two and it’s actually a good song.

If you’re not familiar with this song, it’s a 3.5 minute call-out post on Tumblr set to a really good guitar riff and some synth.

“Why don’t they do what they say, say what they mean? One thing leads to another.” If you can translate this, go ahead. I’m not going to do it.

Now, I think “Saved By Zero” is an infinitely better song. That being said, “Saved By Zero” is depressing. “One Thing Leads To Another” is much peppier. It’s an 80s dance song: analyzing it would be pointless.

Grade: B-
