Never heard it before. What's the story with it?

Foo
He sued Coldplay over an accusation of plagiarism re their song Viva la Vida, never finished its court session, an out of court settlement was reached apparently.

Love this song, a talented man taken too soon. The song has true meaning. Andrew Gold himself was actually born on a Summers Day in 1951.

He was born on a summer day 1951
And with a slap of a hand
He landed as an only son
His mother and father said what a lovely boy
We'll teach him what we learned
Ah yes just what we learned
We'll dress him up warmly and
We'll send him to school
It'll teach him how to fight
To be nobody's fool

Oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy

In the summer of '53 his mother
Brought him a sister
And she told him we must attend to her needs
She's so much younger than you
Well he ran down the hall and he cried
Oh how could his parents have lied
When they said he was an only son
He thought he was the only one

Oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy

Goodbye mama, goodbye to you
Goodbye papa I'm pushing on through

He left home on a winter day 1969
And he hoped to find all the love
He had lost in that earlier time
Well his sister grew up
And she married a man
He gave her a son
Ah yes a lovely son
They dressed him up warmly
They sent him to school
It taught him how to fight
To be nobody's fool

Oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy

Oh, oh, oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy

Love old Bob. Wonder how much he sold all of his rights to his music for?

Have always loved this great instrumental, 1961 as I was leaving school. Always thought Duane Eddy played guitar section but it turns out it was a guy named Richard Podolor. Many drummers have tried to match this over the years, unsuccessfully.

Ever wondered why so much music of today is rubbish? It is because all the good stuff has already been made :).
I have this vinyl album, everything about it is great, bought it when it was first released, the drumming is superb, how I miss a great drum solo, damn I'm old.....

Intro a bit slow. Jump to 3min 10sec, fanbloodytastic. On my iPod I have an even better version from a german concert.
