Jon hits the bullseye with this one saying, “A lovely one from the Coppers. Sam Lee did a splendid balletic version at the Bellowhead Dirty Weekend, which ended with him leaving the stage with a sailor-suited Benji Kirkpatrick, although it’s not on YouTube sadly. Happy Valentine’s Day.”
I hope you all got cards. I must say this has a couple of intriguing elements and you can link to the Coppers’ site here. It’s also worth a quick look at Mainly Norfolk as Reinhard has some nice details. I’m quite taken with this as a song, but it has a curious shift from first to third person point of view, which makes it seem like two songs and I’m still struggling to make sense the story… I also picked this Mudcat thread as it goes into the symbolism of laurels and the wearing thereof. Those lusty Greek deities it seems.
Bonus track: Young Banker (Live at The Hive, Shrewsbury, 13th Feb 2011)
