  1. Oh…dear!

    It’s almost as if that song was written following a premonition!

    Sad stuff indeed 🙁

    but your memory bank is impressive! 😀

  2. Very sad, all they set out to do was enjoy the music until it sounds like they were ripped off by their manager, I can remember Neilsons version that was in the charts in was it 1972? popmeister. I am impressed with your pop knowledge Ian.

  3. Aww . . wish I hadn’t listened to this. I didn’t realise it was a Badfinger song but the Harry Neilson version reminds me of the grief my Godfather felt after the death of his wife. It was played on the radio so often at that time and I haven’t listened to is since. I’ve just ended a long distance relationship with someone I cared about but didn’t care as much for me. Happily, I’m not about to top myself . . I always thought of suicide as selfish. But that’s another story. You do have an incredible memory for music trivia!

  4. Hi Ian,

    You have only just touched on the story! I worked for the group way back in the early ’70’s and got back in contact with Joey & Kathie Molland a couple of years ago. Check out or where we are hoping to show that a self published, unauthorised biography is in fact very wrong and a lot of it is author opinion, an opinion that has been borne after he was thrown out of the Molland’s home.

  5. Hi Cheryl,

    Thanks for the links. I’ll check them out. It is sad that the song comes with such a story of conflict.
