Don't Marry Her" is a song by The Beautiful South and the opening track on their album Blue is the Colour. Vocalist Jacqui Abbott begs a man to run away with her from the woman he is going to marry, and attempts to sway him by describing what she thinks married life with the other woman will be like, painting a very uninviting picture.

The Beautiful South were an English pop rock group formed in 1988 by Paul Heaton and Dave Hemingway, two former members of the Hull group the Housemartins, both of whom performed lead and backing vocals. Other members throughout the band's existence were former Housemartins roadie Sean Welch (bass), Dave Stead (drums) and Dave Rotheray (guitar). Painting It Red release and Abbott's departure. The band's third album 0898 Beautiful South followed in 1992

Blue Is The Colour is probably the defining BS album, and is also one of the contenders for their best. Don't Marry Her' sets the tone right away; a dreamy, catchy pop song that's great to sing along to in the car on a sunny day. Just make sure no-one's listening. Beautiful South is the name. Excellent is the verdict.

Light, dreamy pop that includes lines like this may knock the listener over. Finely produced, it should be noted that the knob-twiddler here was Jon Kelly (Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Tori Amos, Kate Bush). Dulcet harmonies with casual bar talk rewritten as poetry
