Seit 1993 sind sie eine Band, Hugh Morgan und Brian Leiser, mit wechselnden Schlagzeugern. Seit gut 10 Jahren ist mit Frank Benbini Schlagzeuger Nummer drei bei den Fun Lovin‘ Criminals dabei. Fünf Alben und drei Kompilation, auf denen die Band eigenes Musikmaterial neu verwertete, sind seitdem entstanden. Mit dem Geld ihres Erfolges gründeten sie in ihrer Heimatstadt New York ein Müllabfuhr-Unternehmen. Inzwischen lebt die Band in England.

Mit “Couldn’t get it right“ vom Album “Mimosa” landeten die Fun Lovin‘ Criminals 1999 einen ihrer größten Hits.

Time is driftin‘, this rock has got to roll
So I hit the road and made my getaway
Restless feeling, I really gotta hold
I started searching for a better way

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn’t see the light, no I couldn’t see the light
I kept on lookin‘ for a way to take me through the night
But couldn’t get it right, no I couldn’t get it right

LA fever, made me feel alright
But I must admit it got the best of me
Gettin‘ down, so deep I nearly drowned
I can’t get back to where I used to be

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn’t see the light, no I couldn’t see the light
I kept on lookin‘ for a way to take me through the night
But couldn’t get it right, no I couldn’t get it right

New York City, took me with the tide
I nearly died from hospitality
Left me stranded and took away my pride
Just another know it all fatality

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn’t see the light, no I couldn’t see the light
I kept on lookin‘ for a way to take me through the night
But couldn’t get it right, no I couldn’t get it right

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn’t see the light, no I couldn’t see the light
I kept on lookin‘ for a way to take me through the night
But couldn’t get it right, no I couldn’t get it right

And I kept on looking for a sign in the middle of the night
But I couldn’t see the light, no I couldn’t see the light
I kept on lookin‘ for a way to take me through the night
But couldn’t get it right, no I couldn’t get it right
