View Full Version : Talk about chance......

I can't believe this you guys.
In roughly 1998 I heard a song, a song which I thought was great, but a song I did not buy. Why? you ask of me? Well, I was just a lad and had little money to spare for such luxurys. Anyhoo, the months of that year passed and I forgot the name of the song and the band, and sure as fate I began to remember the tune (in places) but didn't know anything about it. I asked (tormented) my friends and family if they knew of this song, but to no avail. "Sing us this song!" They would request, but I could not recall enough of this tune to give a performance.
The years have flown since then, like a bird bourne on a swift breeze, and I was on the brink of giving up all hope on this song and ever finding it again.
When to my sudden delight/shock/ecstaticness (I don't think thats even a word) This afternoon, 12:18 GMT, as I was washing my dirty dishes, my local radio station put me out of my own personal amnesiastic hell.
"What song!!!" I hear you cry.
Well The band is Fastball.
And the song is "The Way".
What is the point to this thread? Well, as soon as possible I shall purchase this song should it be stocked, and request information of this band from any swampies who know of them and have bought material of thiers before.
I look forward to a response.

I bought that single, I've got it round the back of the sofa! MINT!

Class song, sounds a little like "Delilah" by Tom Jones in places, but that's a good thing. Haven't heard any of their other stuff though.

Are these (http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Stadium/1436/fastball1.html) the guys you're talking about? I think there's a little information on there about the band. I found the Official Site (http://www.fastballmusic.com/), though I cannot work out how to get passed the main page. I'm still working on it though!:D

Hope there's some useful bits and pieces there;)
