- but the brilliant "Hanging in the Gallery" saved the day. This is one of
Dave's songs which works really well as a poem, I think. But I'm not a poet -
Doug, do you agree?
I actually read out "Hanging in the Gallery" in a university tutorial and
claimed that it was written by Dylan Thomas, just to see the effect. It
worked really well; serious English Literature students (who didn't know as
much Dylan Thomas as they thought) started raving about it - "this is a
marvellous work", "such rhyme and metre", "such insightful vision". Nasty
trick, I know, and boy were they pissed off when they learned it was "only a
pop song". But still, it is a great poem......
