Winning Arrow

Songfacts®:

  • The idea of love as an arrow through the heart isn't exactly new, Leapy Lee just missed the number one spot in the UK in 1968, eight years before Bic Runga was born. "Cupid" also known as Eros, has of course been around somewhat longer.

    That being said, the Kiwi wonder girl always brings something new to even an old song, and this original composition, which runs to 2 minutes 53 seconds was unsurprisingly released as a single, including on vinyl and CD, the latter backed by "Somewhere In The Night", the former by the classic "Say After Me". >>
