Commentary:
 
A seriously neglected track, with an origin that goes back to MES's childhood in Salford.  As a lad, MES used to shout out the song's title, but is quoted as not recalling why he did so. As fallfandave says, "he [MES] can detect in the mundane the vast importance certain things have. Understanding why it is important is not necessary for Mark, it is enough for him to observe that it is important."
