About Real Gone Kid

"Real Gone Kid" is a song by the Scottish rock/pop band Deacon Blue. Released in 1988, it was the first single to come from the band's second album When the World Knows Your Name which was released six months later. The single was the band's first top ten hit, reaching number eight on the UK Singles Chart, number 10 in Ireland, and number five in New Zealand. In Spain, the song reached number one for three weeks. Vocalist Ricky Ross wrote the song about a performance he saw of ex-Lone Justice singer Maria McKee on stage (Deacon Blue had toured with Lone Justice for a time as the opening band). The B-sides consist of the song "Little Lincoln" and covers of Sam & Dave's "Born Again" and Hüsker Dü's "It's Not Funny Anymore".
