Probably me least fav track on the record (keep in mind it’s a fantastic record with not a poor song to be found). Love Adams as well

'Never...' was always my least fave track on the album. It always felt bitty and throw-away and a bit of an album-filler. Probably not helped by coming immediately after 'I Know...' which is a hard act to follow and a bit of a show-stopper. But after hearing what Adams said I will have to listen to it again now with fresh ears...

"Never had no one ever" and "Vicar in a tutu" were always my least favorite songs on the album, I like them, not bad by any means but far from the magic of There is a light, I know it's over, The boy... or any other on the album.
Incidentally, "Never had no one ever" is one of my favorite demos on the Deluxe edition, the trumpet really adds something to the song which is otherwise too linear and similar all the way through.
I think Adams is the first person I've heard say that was his favorite song on the album.

I love the trumpet too. Adds to the feeling of a 'film noir' vibe I felt in the lyrics
