Wow, did not know this. Not only wrote it but released his own version before the Chicory Tip one it seems

Never heard of them. Just did a quick search and their song he did doesn’t sound familiar. Are they Dis faves or something? Just found out he also co-wrote and produced this…

MM didn’t, was someone in his music production company called Josh Marcell

I have just googled this to find out as the thought that MM had scored Crash was special to me, and… I just needed to know, for reals

And apparently it’s about Super Vet, Noel Fitzpatrick.

McCluskey created Atomic Kitten outright, he wanted a vehicle for his more pop oriented songs so he created the band. He probably wrote a lot more for them

Haha that’s like two polar opposites of 70s aesthetics too!

Listened to a decent podcast episode about this recently which confirmed this is hyperbolic at best. He contributed a few lines to the US version of the jingle just like probably a hundred plus others did in different territories around the world.

I still can’t believe Jackson Browne wrote These Days when he was just sixteen.

Sixteen! How can you write lyrics like “I had a lover. I don’t think I’d risk another these days” when you’re sixteen??!!

Probably in my top 10 all-time favourite records.

He also wrote that Katie Melua song about bicycles. I think he might have written all her songs but I’m not googling it
