Song of the Day: 'How Long' by Ace

Considered a 1973 one-hit wonder by the British band Ace, the song was written and sung by none other than Paul Carrack, who would later hit the charts with Squeeze ("Tempted") and Mike and the Mechanics ("The Living Years"). Wikipedia notes that Carrack's songs have been recorded by artists such as Linda Ronstadt, the Eagles, Diana Ross, Tom Jones, Michael McDonald and Jools Holland, and he has served as a session and/or touring musician for Elton John, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, B.B. King, the Pretenders, the Smiths and Madness.
