Oh my Gosh i loved this song. I remember hearing it when i was 12 years old, in the back of my Dad and Monica's car as we drove from Spokane Washington...all the way across the country to Appleton Wisconsin. We were relocating.
Dad told me years later, in a joking way, of course, when he had been invited to my wedding to Nick, and could not make it because he could not travel due to illness...he joked and said " remember when we moved from Spokane to Wisconsin? That was because Washington State was not far enough away from your mother!" haha...mum was in New Zealand. I think the thought of coming to New Zealand brought on his illness haha.
This song was cool when i was 12.
I think Eddie Grant died just recently, of a drug overdose. I could be wrong.
I'm in bed with my nanna nightie on, wondering to myself, why Nixon always smells worse just after he has had a bath, and why it is then, that he tries to sleep on top of my face.
