well it's a fantastic song, it really is a great song, it's one of those songs that you all sing in the pub at the end of a boozy night, you've probably got your lighters above your head, and you're probably swaying from side to side and it's one of those songs I think that even if you'renot a pop fan particularly people know it, people know it who don't even listen to pop music regularly but it seems to have struck a chordwith an awful lot of people...
