Whats that songs story? Was it a B-side off Innuendo?? I've tried to look for some information, but I cant find any, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers. :D

Thank you! I downloaded it and couldnt figure out where it came from. It's very mellow, good for a listen.

Can we, I dunno, bombard Brian with questions about this track sometime? Is nothing known about it because there's no real story as to how it happened or something?

It's just - with all other tracks there seems to be an anecdote. And even with the songs where no one knows what they mean (MOTBQ) they still go "well we really don't know what this songs about".

But this song? BLIP.... BLIP... nothing on the radar. I want to know more!

Sounds like he's complaining because the vending machine in Metropolis studios was empty. Hence the 'lost opportunity'.

I actually meant the backstory of the song itself, not so much the 'meaning of the lyrics' because those are usually pretty self-explanatory.

its an interesting song, like all of Bri's songs. I like the bluesy melody, its nice. I dunno why but it kinda reminds me of sleeping on the sidewalk...just a little bit, sort of right?

Always liked this song from the first time I heard it years ago...I too am curious as to what the story behind it really is, if there is to be any story...

It's on the UK Slightly Mad CD Single. You should BUY it.
