Oh, Oh, Oh, The Pain
We've been starting to plan our summer holiday, which will be in Southern Spain (Andalucia). As well as taking in the glories of Islamic Spain (Granada, Cordoba, Seville), we realised that we will be in easy reach of Gibraltar, and reckoned a day trip to see the apes (the real Barbary ones, not the Gibraltarians!) could be fun. I was Googling about Gibraltar, and brought up "famous Gibraltarians". The most famous was Albert Hammond, writer of songs such as The Air That I Breathe, I'm A Train, When I Need You, Free Electric Band and many others. I hadn't realised up to now that he'd also written this blast from the past:
Back when I was starting out in IT (when this song was less than ten years old) we used to sing a version along the lines of "Little errors in your coding, little errors in your hair, When you debug you'll find those little errors everywhere". True then: true now.
