That's absolutely dreadful John. It sounds like if professional darts was a song.

He actually makes me cringe every time I see or hear him.
a bunch of dudes jamming but some of the abrupt edits serve as a reminder it owes a lot to technology. It finds ***** distancing himself from his musical past, but it sounds equally far from the dense abstraction his music would take on later

I admit it's not a patch on 'Window'

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Hit enough. Catchy and winning, but also instantly forgettable. And "Rock On" is much more inspired. If there was a Footy choice, I'd take it, but it's not shit.

Terrible vocal performance. SO many bum notes.

The song and esp. the arrangement are lame as well.

It's a genuine atrocity against mankind.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

This young man stood up in a working men's club in 1974 and sang this song which had every woman there swooning. They couldn't believe the confidence of the fella - who only hours ago was down the pit sweating and breathing coal dust. And he wrote the ditty himself!

And the bar band were hot that night, using the new 'trumpet' setting on the Bontempi. Pro drummer, too, for the first time. You can tell.

A win on this Saturday's New Faces for sure. And - who knows? - maybe a career in showbusiness!
