Song for Horace

LAST week I wrote about how thousands of people across north London were left genuinely distraught by the sudden death of Horace – Mister Best Of Luck, who you would often see in Finchley, Barnet, Muswell Hill and Camden Town greeting complete strangers with his warm catchprase.

We all react differently to sad, sad news like this. Take song writer Robert Puzey, who wrote and produced Diamond Lights by pop star footballers Glenn Hoddle and Chris Waddle in the 1980s. He explains: “Horace touched a lot of peoples’ hearts. The next thing I knew was I had picked up my guitar and was writing a tribute song for Horace on the same guitar that I wrote one of my most well known hits, ‘I’m in the Mood for Dancing’, sung by the Nolans.” Bob wants to release it to raise money for the Whittington Hospital. As Horace would say, best of luck with that.

Details on the film and on the YouTube page as to how to donate.

…and for those who don’t remember those Spurs lads Hoddle and Waddle on stage together in 1987:
