This is from the original film that was shot in '64:
That was meant to be about Bruce Springsteen. Never really took to that song at the time. Same with The Waterboys song about Prince.
I always thought The Waterboys, Prince connection was a myth. Never liked them, even though Whole of The Moon was a big hit for them.
Prefab Sprout were a good band, Paddy McAloon a talented lyricist. He was training for the Priesthood at at Seminary near where I was brought up. As was the comedian Johnny Vegas for a short time.
