so i thought i'd have a go at this posting songs lark... and incredibly i think i've worked out how you do it...
songs still manage to come out of nowhere and blow me away. like this one. i've got a nice shiny cd version too but it doesn't sound anything like as gorgeous as this totally knackered 45.
when i tried to find out stuff about barbara lewis it turns out the arctic monkeys have covered a song on some b side, which makes me like them even though i've never heard it, and gives me much more hope in the kids today than i had yesterday .
somehow, despite making records of such incredible fabuluosness, she ended up with 'a successful career as an armed security officer'.
clicking on the title at the top should take you there.
i promise you'll spend the rest of the day going 'shooo bop shooo bop, my baby...'
