Artist Info

Jane & Barton

Powered by Audioscrobbler™"It's a Fine Day" is a song written by English poet and musician Edward Barton. It was originally recorded in 1983 by Jane, and later by Opus III for whom it was a major international hit in 1992.
Barton wrote the lyrics as a poem when living in the Hulme area of Manchester[1]. It was originally sung unaccompanied by, and credited to, Jane - that is, Jane Lancaster, Barton's girlfriend[2][3]. They recorded and released it independently, and it was played by radio DJ John Peel. It was then heard by Iain McNay of Cherry Red Records, who obtained the rights to the record and released it more widely on his label in 1983.[4] It reached # 5 on the UK Indie Chart, and later appeared, credited to Jane and Barton, on their eponymous mini-album Jane And Barton.

Jane's version of the song was remixed by A Guy Called Gerald in 1992.
