It was Superbowl in the USA last month, a victory for the side hailing from the region much loved by the great Jonathan Richman, New England and an excuse to post this. The pretext is even more spurious than usual since the song has nothing to do with American football except that the expression ‘running down the clock’ is taken from it. I spent ages working out a very sophisticated chord sequence for this song and then ended up using it only once. So listen carefully.
