“Ship of Fools” is from Erasure’s 1988 album, The Innocents. Mute Records released this song as the lead-off single for the album in the UK on February 22, 1988. Sadly, “Ship of Fools” was never released as a single in North America. 😦
Personally, I really like the song “Ship of Fools.” There’s just something about he mixture of the music and the lyrics that attract me to it. Admittedly, this music video looks like it obviously came out in the late 1980s, but it works for the type of song that “Ship of Fools” is.
