This song is firmly back in traditional blues territory of heartbreak, regret and inadequacy. It uses a simple chord progression with a bold hook but, ultimately, it is all about the lyrics and their delivery. It was a performance of this song, relayed down a mobile telephone, that secured the band a support slot for the first ever live performance, so it has a special place in the bands affections.
