The greatest song ever written

October 7, 2009

IF you measure the ‘heft’ of a pop song on how much you have hummed it, thought about it, turned it over in your head during the span of your life and how often it can induce a deep emotional response in you, then please watch this. It has dominated GM’s life since we were a wee fella.
More to follow on why when GM has a bit more time, because the story of our love of this wonderful song is both time consuming and involving.
‘This song is by a fella by Guy Clarke, it’s a kind a country song’ was how Freddie White introduced it when we heard it first in 1980. Changed us completely.
