Down Down

Down Down by Status Quo was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, January 18, 1975 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Coming up with a title and developing the chorus were the big challenges in writing this song. Francis Rossi tells us that he kept thinking about the 1968 Tyrannosaurus Rex song "Debora," and wanted to get that D sound in the words. Bob Young came up with the idea for "Down Down," which sounded good, but didn't make any sense. The band plagiarized themselves a bit on this song: the verse rhythm is similar to the intro of their first hit, "Pictures Of Matchstick Men." I was already stealing my own songs before I made any success," Rossi
