    Can’t remember if I ever mentioned this to you… this is my very favorite song of all time. Go figure.

      My Dear Hedly,
      They recorded this song?

      • Hedley Says:

        It was a reference to Adam Faith, a successful singer in the early 60s who went on to act in the TV show “Budgie”. It was a bit more obtuse than normal.

    Over the years I have wondered more than once, why Mr. Faith never added a vocalist to his presentations. The words to this piece are as wonderful as the music.

    Thanks for this one, Kat. It gets stuck in my heard for weeks at a time after I hear it, blocking out most other things. And that is about the only ‘dislike’ I have about it.

      You’re very welcome, Carl. I loved this song when it was releases, words or no words. It did come out with lyrics, but I always loved this version the most.

    My Dear Hedley,
    Than you for the background!
