    Ok, I know it got well overplayed thanks to that feckin' TV show. But back on it's release on their Escape album in 1981, this song became the anthem of the Blues that frequented the Phoenix/UMIST/Jilly's/Sporran rock clubs ..... and we never did stop believing.

    So taunt me
    And hurt me
    Deceive me desert me
    I,m yours till I die
    So in love , so In love
    With you am I

    Whenever I hear this:



    I think of standing on the Kippax as the police march from the Platt lane tunnel through to the Kippax to take up position about ten minutes into the game.

    Did you ever read about a frog
    Who dreamed of bein' a king
    And then became one
    Well except for the names
    And a few other changes
    If you talk about me
    The story is the same one


    I am I said . This verse

    Phoenix, UMIST & Jilly's. That takes me back. Mainly the Phoenix for me. Terry was the DJ, Dave his understudy. Don't ever remember going to the sporran though

    Sporran was usually Weds nights after the Phoenix ..... And occasional Sats after UMIST too.

    Terry and Dave are still keeping it going .... for a few years now they do Phoenix Revisited, once a month upstairs at the Britons Protection pub. The DJ after them at the Phoenix, 'Fuck Off' Dave Morrissey manages Manc band Amplifier.
