Song of the day: John Miles- Music

john-miles-music-1976-10

In 1976, John Miles wrote the biggest hit he would ever have. The song was written in Leeds, where John wanted to kill some time. In less than half an hour he came up with this song, or as he thought then, the basics of several songs. Later he would decide to keep them together. Alan Parsons would produce the album, and so he did produce this song, too. As he later said, he was glad to work on such a mark in music history. The song was a number 3 hit in the UK, but did not chart in the US (though the cut of 3 minutes may have something to do with that…). Enjoy
