Just Like An Arrow

Album: On A Storyteller's Night (1985)


  • Hmm, where have we heard this before? "Little Arrows" by Leapy Lee way back in 1968; in 2005 by Bic Runga with "Winning Arrow", and this one bang in the middle, 1985. Written as usual by Tony Clarkin, this is an uptempo number, and hey, the audience may ever join in.

    Not the most inspirational song Clarkin has ever penned or Magnum has ever recorded, but good clean fun, and of course the eternal story, though most doctors would probably advise against taking any sort of pointed object in the heart. >>
