Chris Rea – Gone Fishing
“Gone Fishing” from album Auberge by Chris Rea, released in 1991.
Chris Rea interview – summer 1991, for the song ”Gone Fishing”. I know a lot of people have remarked to me they have listened to the record, “I like that song, that's what we should do, just go fishing, forget about everything”. The funny thing about that song is as I say in the song, I don't know anything about fishing. he bottom line of the tune is that when you get to the last day of your life and you look back, and you see how many hours you've spent in traffic-jams, pushing and shoving, how many hours you've spent elbowing people out of the way and being elbowed out of the way; You just thing to yourself I wish I had all them hours back, cos I may as well have gone fishing…
So long and thanks for all the fish 🙂
