One of the classic “tragic” songs that have found their way into the pop charts over the years (think “Tell Laura I Love Her, Leader of the Pack, Honey, etc). This one gets a mention in the Countdown because Paul Evans was kind enough to correspond with me and to create a guest promo for Radio Ga Ga – click here to hear it.

Apart from that, it is actually a great song that tells a sad story. Listen to it now and I’ll guarantee that it will get stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
