Out On Blue Six : Wet Wet Wet/Billy Bragg (feat Cara Tivey)

This unlikely pairing came about as a double A side single, released in May 1988 to raise funds for the charity ChildLine. Taking two Lennon and McCartney compositions, With A Little Help From My Friends (performed by the Wets) and She's Leaving Home (Bragg, with regular collaborator Tivey) it went to number one and raised a lot of money for the children's counselling service.
