So Long, Farewell

Writers - Rodgers/Hammerstein
Unreleased (1993)

On October 22, 1993, Neil and Chris recorded this brief track as a fond farewell to a longtime institution of British radio, The Simon Bates Show. (Whether it truly qualifies as a "live" track is highly debatable.) Neil sings, "So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu—goodbye, good luck, from me and him [Chris] to you." It's an only slightly modified version of the chorus of yet another song from Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical The Sound of Music. Obviously our heroes have a particular fondness for that show.
