I have now been writing 17 Seconds for thirteen years, which for people who love numbers means I have been writing it for a quarter of my life.
And my passion for music has not diminished, even if working life means that I am a lot more tired and less able to write it as often as I might like. Also, I am somewhat perplexed by the records that seem to be really popular these days…and the ones that don’t seem to be hits which I think should be.
In my world, this awesome track would have been no.1 for several weeks already, yet it hasn’t even entered the Top 100. Ladies and Gentlemen, if you still haven’t heard it ‘Salted Caramel Ice Cream’ by Metronomy. My song of the summer.
