It's actually a beautiful song. In 1988, I was growing tired. I'd lived a little too hard during my late teens and early twenties and most of my blood seemed to have turned to high fibre (see the F-Plan Diet) and Stella Artois (Reassuringly Expensive).
The song was soothing and as I was in a nightmare relationship that I knew must end, but somehow didn't want to, held resonance for me. Maybe, if I ended it, one day it might be possible to resume it? Things might improve?
Never seen the video before. Adore the surprise humorous ending!
