THe 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
592-Manfred Mann-Semi Detached Suburban Mr James.
1966-Number 2 single
Best Bit-At 2.08.Nothing wrong with owning a semi detached,they are worth a lot of money.
Manfred Mann were formed in the early 1960s and took their name from their keyboard player.The group had two different lead singers,Paul Jones from 1962-1966 and Mike d’Abo from 1966 to 1969.
The very clever lyrics are told from the point of view of a lover spurned.He tries to convince her that she would find life with Mr James tedious and boring,where as with him it would be excitement and adventure.
‘So you think you will be happy taking doggie for a walk with your semi-detached suburban Mr James.’
