Apparently joint managing directors Nick Spindler and Peter Thompson

were on a train heading for a client meeting with Allied Dunbar when

they fell into composing mood.



After much humming Spindler, who has a diploma from the Trinity College

of Music, came up with a tune while Thompson wrote the lyrics. The pair

took their ditty to a business associate at Mcasso Music Productions

who, unbeknown to them, entered it in the Eurovision Song Contest.



Now the song, named ’For the Life You Don’t Yet Know’, is one of the

final four contestants battling it out to represent Britain in the

contest, held on 3 May.



The duo have recruited ex-Ultravox singer Sam Blue as their front man

and have assembled a four-girl string quartet. They have also been

signed up by Simply Red’s label East West Records who insist the song is

top 20 material.



Agency staff are big fans of the ballad, although one did confess to

also being a fan of Michael Bolton.
