You're coming out tonight,
There's nothing to lose,
You're going to give it all a try,
Don't ever change.
The longstanding recording project of British singer / songwriter / producer Ian Broudie.
Tropes in the work of The Lightning Seeds:
- Cool Shades: Broudie is rarely seen without these.
- Cover Version: One of their biggest hits is "You Showed Me". The Lightning Seeds version is similar to The Turtles' arrangement but with the addition of a trip hop beat.
- I Am the Band: It started as Broudie recording under a group name before becoming a Revolving Door Band with Broudie as the only permanent member.
- Lyrical Dissonance: "Lucky You" disguises its viciousness with a very catchy musical backing. "Sugar Coated Iceberg" is an upbeat song about a dysfunctional relationship with someone who's superficially nice but is actually not a good person.
