“She flies like a bird, and I wish that she was mine.”

“I Can’t Let Maggie Go” by Honeybus | July’s done, so let’s return to regular programming, shall we? In the past month I’ve made several drafts of old songs I discovered on foreign radio. Par for the course, then. Anyway, Honeybus – a band from 60s London, at a time when popular music was finding its way and turned out some really interesting results. Yes, this song – their biggest hit, released in 1968, before their lead songwriter Pete Dello left to go solo – definitely has some Beatles-esque undertones, and that draws you in. Yet – and I know this will be misinterpreted a bit – this sounds a wee bit more grown up. Okay. Less experimental, more… gah, I wrote myself into a corner. [NB]
