Thread Name: ADD: Silver Darlings (various)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Silver Darlings (Bob Halfin, Jim McLean)
Jim Maclean off the topic.. The late Bob Halfin suggested my father should write a song called 'You'll never get used to Uist'. It was probably as bad as it sounds - and is now completely lost -existing only as a song title on a contract.   When the contract came out - it was credited as Halfin/Ross - even though Mr. Halfin only gave the title! Long dead now, Bob Halfin was one of those old tin pan alley types, with cases of lyrics and songs..and dodgy contracts!
