The 101 number one song of the Day was so convincing, it was widely assumed that it was the writer/singer’s life story. It wasn’t – and he’s eternally grateful it’s not.

None of the situations, he said, happened to him. For one thing he was never stood up at a church because he never came close to getting married. Nor did he cry at his father’s funeral and his mother was very much alive at the time. It wasn’t what you call a happy song but he was certainly glad that on August 8, 1972 it was the number one song in America for Gilbert O’Sullivan (Along Again – Naturally)
