The moment you've all been waiting for is here! It's the release of the Week 5 single and accompanying question.
And the single is... Refugee, from Damn The Torpedoes.
What can you say about Refugee? It's a Heartbreakers anthem known the world over and the fact that it often gets the honor of closing the band's shows says it all.
The swamp blues It's Rainin' Again is the b-side to Refugee worldwide and it also made an appearance on Playback and the 2010 deluxe reissue of Damn The Torpedoes.
OK, here is this week's question.
