Eugene McGuinness is a British singer-songwriter of Irish heritage, who released a critically acclaimed eponymous debut album in 2008 and a second release as frontman of Eugene + the Lizards the following year. McGuinness spent 2010 as Miles Kane's touring and session guitarist, whilst recording his third album, The Invitation To The Voyage in London.
This is the first single to be released from The Invitation To The Voyage. He explained its meaning to Q magazine: "The song's about being manipulated. Eventually you decided you're not going to put up with it."
The song's music video sees McGuinness being stalked by four dancers. He told Q: "You know (in real life) it wouldn't be half bad. But I think I'm a frustrated song-and-dance man at heart."
Country star Slim Whitman's version of the 1920s song "Rose Marie" spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK in 1955, a record until 1991 when Bryan Adams’ "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" spent 16 weeks at the top.
