1. Thanks! I have always loved this song.

Did Status Quo have any other popular songs? I have never heard one.

10. They have a zillion songs. We put them on Pandora

Everyday they play a Status Quo song we never heard before.
They are like DePeche Mode. Huge hits in England.

3. I only know this song cause of the Camper Van Beethoven cover in the 80's

Not that I don't know a LOT of songs from this era, but I didn't recognize it as a cover when CVB did it ... I soon found out it was cause people talked about it, but ... not at first.

I dig Goofy Ben Stiller on Keys ... btw, are these dudes all wearing wigs?

7. Same here - and I was fairly immersed in 60's music, despite being born in the middle of the decade

I hadn't heard the Status Quo version until after hearing (and loving CVB's ver).

9. Great Tune!

Status Quo was huge in Britain with close to 30 top ten hits there but this tune was their sole hit here, strange.
