Produced by Tore Johansson

Recorded Spring 1997
Released May 1998 on Good Humor

Notes “The lyric was based on the painting of Del Shannon in Nik Cohn and Guy Peellaert’s Rock Dreams. He isn’t even a postman, he’s a homecoming soldier. I don’t know why I thought he was a postman. It’s nothing to do with Kevin Costner, anyway.” (Bob Stanley, 2010).

Notes “Icy, bass and piano verse gives way to mournful but uplifting chorus. Del Shannon stars as tragic nice guy who always picks a bad pony. Gorgeous, tearful, Christmas mood.” (Bob Stanley, 1998).
