Level 40
Know quite aq bit qabout #9 I have worked with Pete Brown, the lyricist, and recently went to see him when he was producing in Hollywood. If the chorus sounds lyrically out of step with the rest of the song, well it is. Pete had the verses, but they didn't haqve a hook or a title. Eric Clapton came up with "In the Sunshine If Your Love" which Pete hated but they had nothing else so went with it.
