Fucking great
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

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.

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

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.

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!
