The new Neil Finn single "Second Nature" recorded live - as indeed the whole of the new album will be- over four sessions broadcast live on Facebook.

"Ocean Spray" is a cranberry drink that is often given to cancer patients - allegedly because it has healing qualities.
James Dean-Bradfield's mum drank Ocean Spray whilst slowly slipping away from cancer in hospital.
This was the first lyric JDB wrote for the Manics and, based on this, he probably should have written more.
It's such a beautiful tune - the opening lines roughly translate to " Your eyes are beautiful, you have such beautiful eyes".



The way the guitars crash over the end of the chorus is magnificent and the trumpet solo (played by the drummer, surprisingly) is just gorgeous.

I seriously love this song - it has so much depth of feeling, desperation and is so poignant.

"Oh-oh, please stay awake and then we can drink some ocean spray".
