What is the most awful, hideously irritating song you know?
It is not a song I actually hate but the memory it brings back.
One Christmas, I think it was about 1972, I was working Christmas Day in London. My girlfriend at the time had gone to stay at my parents on the south coast and all my friends had left to stay with relatives in various parts of the UK.
Christmas Eve I suddenly realised that I didn't have a chicken for the the next day so I rushed around the shops trying to buy something. All I could get was a tiny chicken about the size of a pigeon and really pathetic .
Anyway after work I came home in the dark to my flat on Brixton Hill to cook dinner on a cold and miserable Christmas Day. I was really fed up and all by myself for two more days.
