I had the first and third Waterboys when they were released, I don’t recall why I never bought the second, and this track was probably my favourite of what I’ve heard (it’s on the first album). ‘Whole of the Moon’ is the bigger hit and better known but I really like the lyrics in this one. A girl called Johnny/ Who changed her name when she/ Discovered her choice was/ To change or to be changed/ I remember a girl called Johnny/ Black as hell, white as a ghost/ “Don’t talk about life and death”/ She said, “I’ve had enough of both”
