I turned onBBC Radio 6 hoping that they’d play the song at some point. Well, blow me down, the trumpets of the intro sounded within seconds of me tuning in.

So just as I used to do when I played the song when I was a kid – I had it on a Now That’s What I Call Music vinyl album – I danced and sang along to every word.
