The greatest song of all time

How to describe this song? Where to begin?

Though many years have elapsed since it burst upon the civilised world, thankfully, via the wonders of post-modern technology we are now able to archive for the benefit of future generations its genesis and development thus:

1. Initial rehearsals and first public performance (complete with critical reaction)

2. The allegedly obligatory video

3. The event, complete with the “competition” (snigger) and eventual triumphant performance

Of course, we all know what happened in the end; “It’s a terrible story”. But life is seldom fair. Let us remain unsullied by fate and instead gain inspiration from the artists’ visionary zeal and commitment to their art. RIP Len Hoogan and the Hugenotes.

“Hang on, I can get this…”
