Ho scoperto che era St. Monday di Billy Bragg
"I’m a hard worker but I ain’t working on a Monday
I’m a hard worker but I ain’t working on a Monday
A hard working fellow but I ain't working on a Monday
St. Monday’s still the weekend to me"
ora, grazie a questo post di Trentesimo Anno ho scoperto la storia di un hit nato dalla collaborazione di Billy Bragg con una malata di tumore al seno
"A mother fighting breast cancer is this week knocking at the door of the pop chart's top 10. Her surprise hit has been made possible by the personal support of the veteran musical maverick, Billy Bragg.
We Laughed is the result of a moving collaboration between Billy Bragg, long-time songwriter and political activist, and Maxine Edgington, a single mother from Dorset with no musical background.
The pair met at a songwriting workshop held in a Weymouth Hospice, when Ms Edgington was determined to create a poem for her teenage daughter. Bragg put her lyrics to music, and credits "goodwill and word of mouth" alone for its impressive sales."
