Mentioned by both Brian Hogg and
Lindsay Hutton in their respective
reviews, this song opened
their gigs in the later half of 1978.
It was a belter; a two part majestic, sprawling opening announcing to all and sundry that the band had definitely arrived on stage, before
sliding into a more conventional structure, with Jim elongating the song's title over the chorus.
Whilst working on their material before formal recording of Life In A Day, the extended
intro was scrapped and the main song was toned down, tidied up and given a new lyric (a similar process which took
Cocteau Twins and metamorphized it into No Cure).
It was finally recorded as Destiny on the album.
Sweet Things [Live]: Town Hall, Grangemouth, UK: 28th December, 1978 (3130K, .WMA format, 6:35 minutes)
