I came across this song for the first time last Thursday, and it is literally everywhere now, thanks to the success of the English Rugby team over the last week. The song is really good, and actually almost as good as 'Ruby', also by Rogers. Songs with stories have always had a special place for me, like Johnny Yuma by Johnny Cash, Patches by Clarence Carter, Coat of many colours by Dolly Parton, and the Hurricane by Dylan. I never thought about it, but they always seem to be from blues, folk and country music.
Perhaps an entrant to our new and improved chart system - without the need for the record to be re-released? Surely Rogers must be making some money from this?
