Yet another tale of unrequited love. This time that between future Fingolstone "Daz" Shields and sister of Gwegory, Samantha Harrison.
Sam was the classic unobtainable fantasy figure that the likes of Daz could only dream about. For he was too old, too ugly, too bizarre and most of all his barnet at the time was truly shocking.
The song features the re-introduction of the electronic keyboard into the Fingolstones music. Last used in 1987's "Jack the Ripper", the board was rediscovered covered in dust and being used as a doorstop by Norberts mum. A quick rub down with Mr Sheen and it was ready to go.
An all electronic affair, the song fits neatly the early 90's electro bop scene. It was rumoured that Stock Aitken and Waterman were interested in remixing the raw electro funk mix of Hard Luck Rob and re releasing it as a dance number.
The rumour was of course b******s and probably came about after a heavy Holsten Pils drinking session in The Avenue.
The song has lost none of its charm over the years and the moral still rings true today ie if you think a bird is out of your league, then she probably is. Unfortunately many young folk have been lead to believe that a winning personality will always win over looks. This myth has been perpetrated by countless Hollywood movies. The fact remains though that if you are a fat bloater then your bird/bloke will also be a fat bloater. Likewise if you look like a cross between Shergar and the lead singer of the Charlatans you've got no chance of pulling Samantha Harrison.
Daz demonstrates just why he had 2 Hopes of pulling Sam Harrison.
