This is one of the most beautiful, melancholic pieces of music I have. It's up there with Rembrandt Hat by Andy White, Jonathan Richman's That Summer Feeling and Thirteen by anyone but especially the Kathryn Williams version with it's ability to make me nostalgic, slightly sad but also smile at the same time.
I think that Gordon McIntyre is a much underrated song writer and the works of Ballboy should be better known that they are. Past Lovers came out in 2003 and is another excellent song that the Great British music buying public totally ignored. Tragic really.
