In the Nick Lowe song “All Men Are Liars” there are the following lines
Do you remember Rick Astley?
He had a big fat hit that was ghastly.
He said I’m never gonna give you up or let you down.
Well I’m here to tell ya that Dick’s a clown
What did Rick Astley do to cause this? Steal Nick Lowe’s girlfriend? Say that he was moree talented than Nick Lowe? Or is it just a good rhyme?
