“My Mam June had pneumonia and was in a coma for three days.
I had faith she was going to be okay. But, just in case, me and my sister went to Karen Millen to buy black dresses. Like the selfish twenty year olds we were we went out clubbing to ‘Rockshots’ in them instead.
It was my cousin who went to the hospital with a CD Walkman with this track on. Mam had always liked it – still does, don’t you Mam?
As soon as it went on, her foot started tapping and I got the call to say she was going to be okay.
It’s a very happy song for us both.”
