Song of the day: The Small Faces- Lazy Sunday
Some singles become hits while the band doesn’t want the song to be released. This single is part of a concept album, Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake, and was released in 1968, preceding the album. The Small Faces didn’t want this, but the song became a number 2 hit in the UK. The backing melody has parts of Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones, played on kazoo. The largest part is sung in a cockney accent, due to an argument with the Hollies, who said Marriott (the singer) had never sung in his own accent. Enjoy
