Supertramp - Cannonball b/w Ever Open Door (1985) - single

Supertramp are a British rock band formed in 1969 under the name Daddy before renaming themselves in early 1970.
 
"Cannonball" is the opening track from Supertramp's 1985 album "Brother Where You Bound". It
was written and sung by keyboardist Rick Davies entirely in the chord of G. Davies stated in an interview "I did it simply to see if it could be done". The lyrics to the song may have been seen as a veiled message to former member Roger Hodgson but Davies revealed in a French radio interview that they were inspired by a less than perfect concert promoter whom he refused to name.
