Goodnight Jack (2:31)

Cover of Travel Edition 1990-2005

From Travel Edition 1990-2005 and 5 other releases

Written by Bob Stanley, Pete Wiggs & Sarah Cracknell
Produced by Tore Johansson

Recorded Spring 1997
Released May 1998 on Good Humor

Notes “Sarah had a whole revenge story up her sleeve, with a nice Ford Capri reference, and Pete wrote this incredible woodwind and harpsichord thing that sounds like nothing on earth. I love it! There’s a stray drum fill near the end which was a mistake but fitted perfectly.” (Bob Stanley, 2010)

“Sarah wrote some very atmospheric lyrics about someone running over and killing her boyfriend - this was before she went out with Martin, our manager. Dull fact: when we wrote the demo we were using a drum loop, we changed the time signature to 7/4 for the end section and it fired the loop in an interesting way, which ace drummer, Rasmus Kihlberg, re-created.” (Pete Wiggs, 2010).
