Nicely done! I actually listened to your cover prior to ever hearing the original, so that was interesting- although I'm familiar with some other Roches tunes, so I had some idea what to expect from the original.

What an elegant tune, so nicely performed. I like how it flips between running in the family being a bad or good thing.

Thanks umbĂș. Nothing can match their 3 part harmony...there's something so freaking amazing and unbeatable about sibling harmony...but I wanted to give it a shot. Everyone usually does Hammond Song (which is also amazing.)
Still no idea what it's about. There's a video of an early 80s performance where Terre Roche (who wrote it) introduces it sort of flippantly as being about diarrhea.
