Flowers On The Wall

My aunty had a Statler Brothers cassette that she used to play in her car, I think it was the only one she had in that car… I certainly heard it a lot that summer I stayed with her, and grew to love the songs contained on its magnetic tape.  This one was my favourite, and was their big crossover hit.  You might remember it from Reservoir Dogs, now you can remember it from that time you played it on the uke…
