All The Best!
'Once Upon a Long Ago' was released in 1987 as a promotional single from Paul's first solo compilation album,All the Best ! Also released on 12" and 7" vinyl, it was Paul's first single to be released as a CD. Paul described his songwriting process for the track as similar to William S. Burroughs' 'cut-up technique', where he picks up nonsensical words and phrases and sees where they fall.
In the context of this song, the idea of its not having to mean something was particularly liberating for me. I can make up a story. It takes next to nothing to get me up and running.Paul
