Gerry Rafferty died yesterday. If you have no idea who he is, he’s responsible for this slice of genius:

I read the BBC obituary at lunchtime – I had no idea Rafferty was one half of Stealer’s Wheel! You probably know their hit ‘Stuck In The Middle With You’.
I’m blasting ‘Baker Street’ on repeat as I type. Thanks, Mr Rafferty.
