  • Mark from Dublin, Irelandthank you cliff for a lifetime,every year cliff has released more singles,dvds etc for me and millions of others to enjoy and for that i thank you sir.....the song iself is not cliffs best work but is just right to say thank you to his fans...if you listen to the chorus it sounds a bit like "downtown" by petula clark...who cares ...its still a pretty good track...why didnt it get to number one....a number of reasons 1. it wasnt played on the radio 2. it wasnt advertised aprt from cliff preforming it a couple of times on morning tv shows and 3. because woolworths was the only bloody shop selling the single.....totally crazy if you ask me...however the single did manage to sell more cds than the whole top 75 singles chart put together but still didnt make it to number one thanks to downloads.....neway to be singing for 50 years and have an advanage of 3 hit singles a year is still worth bloody celebrating....long live cliff
