It’s the final countdown. Diddle-er-der. Diddle-it-dit-der. Diddle-er-der. Diddle-it-dit-der-der-der.

Here’s a song that’s way better than that one. This was one of my “best of 2002” selections from the late great Solomon Burke.

It’s taken from the album “Don’t Give Up On Me” which features brilliant songs written especially for “The King of Rock and Soul” by such musical luminaries as Van Morrison, Dan Penn, Elvis Costello, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, Nick Lowe.

And this one which is written by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan (a.k.a. Mrs Tom Waits)

As well as all those great songs mentioned above, the album also has a song called “Stepchild” written by one Bob Dylan. It’s an absolute stinker of a song with dreadful lyrics that make “Wiggle Wiggle” sound like “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands”
