Plutonium OK, going off topic here so I'll be brief. Did this band get their name from the "man they couldn't hang", John Lee? He was sentenced to death and his execution was scheduled for 23 February 1885, but he survived 3 attempts to hang him. Google...

Plutonium This is a song about a man who has lived on some tropical islands and fallen in love with a woman there. Now the call of duty sends him back to England and some war that is going on. It was written by Kenyan-British artist Roger Whittaker. These...
