Oliver: The Rockingbirds - A Good Day for You is a Good Day for Me (28 December 1991)
A late contender for my favourite track of the 1991 Peel shows comes from London based country-rock band, The Rockingbirds. A glorious update on The Beatles song, Good Day Sunshine, with lashings of pedal steel guitar, the biggest compliment I can pay to this track is that I'm thinking of singing it at my wedding party at the end of this month. It's a love song everyone can sing in company without a trace of embarrassment, and that surely makes it a true song of the people.
