  • songfacts ®
  • This is the title track of English garage band The Jim Jones Revue's second album. The band's namesake and singer told the story behind the song in an interview with Spinner: "I got the title from a friend, a mad Irish poet named Mark Newell. He got it from a dream he had of me. When I was getting ideas together for the album I thought it'd be cool to use it. It's a great one to perform. It's got plenty of room for manoeuvre."
