How have I only found out about this a week ago?
Written by Jimmy Webb in 1968, it was first sang and made popular by country singer, Glen Campbell.
Came to it by total accident, when one of Bombay Bicycle Club's band members did a Q&A with fans on Instagram and got asked if he could claim writing credits for a song, which one would have been. His answer: Wichita Lineman.
