The loss of another rock legend

The sad news broke this morning of the death – believed to be from suicide – of co-founder and keyboardist of the prog rock group Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Keith Emerson, at the age of 71. We heard on the show their biggest commercial success, the 1977 single Fanfare For The Common Man.

It was back to the 80s again for my lyric teaser, when I asked if you could identify the song containing these lines:

Broke off from my work the other day;

I spent the evening thinking about all the blood that flowed away.*

*Word Up! was Letter from America by Charlie and Craig Reid – better known as the Proclaimers:

Craig chatted a few months ago with Phoenix FM’s James Phillips.
