Last Night in Soho

"I never told you of some things I've done I'm so ashamed of. I thought my foolish past was over and done. I felt sure I'd make a new start. I tried with all of my heart. I had dreams and broke them in two. I'm just not worth of you! For last night in Soho I let my life go ..." A classic piece of songwriting from the team of Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley, and a controversial hit in 1968 for Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich. It's pure Night And The City drama in a three minute pop song. It's got everything. Someone trying to go straight. Got 'imself a good girl now. But he can't escape his past. The ties that bind us. One more job and he'll be free. The protection rackets. The darker side of Soho.
