Norman 3

Album: Thirteen (1993)
Charted: 50

Songfacts®:

  • Wondering why this is titled "Norman 3" but there is no mention of a Norman in the lyrics? It is one of several tracks on Thirteen where the song names are working titles. Vocalist Norman Blake, who penned the tune explained to NME:

    "Very often what happens is we have working titles that we ended up keeping. That explains 'Commercial/Alternative' and 'Norman 3' - that's the third of my songs that we recorded for the album. It would go 'Gerry 1,' 'Raymond 1,' and so on."
