Thought for the Day


“Everywhere I go I run into somebody who feels connected to that song. A family got in touch to say their son died and they played it at his funeral. People send me films of their babies being born and that’s the song they use. But when we recorded it we had no idea it would be so telling. We threw it in at the end of a session, and working quickly meant we kept it small. If we’d had a week we’d have probably smothered it. I know some bands struggle to get out from the shadow of a song, but I don’t think we’ll ever want to escape from ‘Do You Realize?”
