Elbow - One Day Like This

04:25

"So throw those curtains wide / One day like this a year would see me right."

Elbow’s biggest hit was taken from the conceptual album The Seldom Seen Kid, which details the life of a late friend of the band - the “kid” of the title. 

The album went on to win the 2008 Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize and established the band as one of Britain’s favourite collectives.
