Elbow were formed in 1990 by Guy Garvey,Craig Potter,Mark Potter and Pete Turner.They were originally called ‘Mr Soft,’then changed the name to ‘Soft’ before deciding on ‘Elbow’ in 1997.The name is inspired by a line in the BBC drama ‘The Singing Detective’ in which the character Philip Marlow describes the word elbow as the loveliest word in the English language.
The songs writer Guy Garvey has said that the line ‘One day like this a year would see me right’ was written when he was a teenager and because he liked it so much he saved it in his diary until the right song came along.Garvey has also stated that he thinks the song is similar to The Beatles ‘Hey Jude’ and Primal Screams ‘Loaded.’
‘So throw those curtains wide,one day like this a year would see me right.’
