  • This song is a segue from "Typical Time," the closing track of The View's previous album Hats Off To The Buskers. Falconer explained on The View Are On Fire: "It was a pretty decent tune on the last album, Typical Time. A lot of people said it was too short. The second one was done on the spot and it worked perfect, just using the same melody on the harmonica but changing the chords around it."
