James Brown, James Brown, James Brown, James Brown
Who They Mention:
This is a remix of a single from "Songs From the Big Chair" and is found on the deluxe edition CD reissue. This song is mostly instrumental, but in parts of it Roland Orzabal is heard repeating "James Brown" in the background. This shout-out to the Hardest Working Man in Show Business isn't heard in the original version of the song.
