About Word of Mouth

"Word of Mouth" is a song by Mike + The Mechanics. It was released in March 1991 as the lead single from their album Word of Mouth. It was the most successful single from that album peaking at No.13 on UK Singles Chart. It also peaked at No.78 in the United States, their last single to chart there, and at No.36 in Canada. The song is driven by electric guitar and synthesizer hooks played in unison, as well as the powerful vocal performance of Paul Young, who sings multiple B4 chest voice high notes. Coupled with layered hand clap and audience effects, the song has a distinctive live, stadium rock sound. AllMusic lauded the track as a "rousing singalong" and "killer pop song."

Now the world is getting older
There's a few things to be said
Do you believe the things they told you
Do you believe the things you've read

There's a rumour on the corner
But it's always been denied
Cause they don't want you any wiser
You're just toeing the party line

From the west side to the east side
From the north side to the south
You'll never get bad information
If you believe in the word of mouth

Look out for those who still want to hang on
Look out for those who live in the past
Get out and listen to the whisper
Because the times are changing fast

From the west side to the east side
From the north side to the south
You'll never get bad information
If you believe in the word of mouth

You don't believe the information
You don't believe it when it's denied
So when you're reading explanations
You have to read between the lines

From the west side to the east side
Through the windows I'm looking out
You'll never get bad information
If you believe in the word of mouth
