Ags Connolly “Wrong Again (You Lose A Life)” – Listen

Oxfordshire honky-tonker Ags Connolly has his third album ‘Wrong Again‘ coming out on the first day of the apocalypse – or November 1st if you prefer.   Today’s song is, quite obviously, the title track and sees Ags  dismissing a search for love as if he were a heartless quiz show host:  “entrusting your heart and believing once more / this time you’ll win and you won’t hurt anymore / wrong again, love’s not on your side and fate doesn’t care what happened last time / … / wrong again, you lose a life.”   

Ags Connolly has explained where the inspiration for the song came from: “This is one of those songs that began with a phrase in my head, like a lot of my songs do. Another relationship that hadn’t worked out, another thing I seemed to have made a mess of. The ‘lose a life’ part can be construed more than one way – the loss of one potential future or the wasting of one more opportunity in what is likely a limited number. These subjects fit pretty snugly in a honky tonk song.”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
