"We stand on the boards listening to the Coasters singing 'Charlie Brown' and watching the riders spin by."
were a popular black American r&b group of the late 1950s. Their hit Charlie Brown
reached number five in the UK charts in 1959. It's an appropriate song to be playing as Hughie is spinning around in the waltzer because of the lyrics, which include the lines, He's a clown
and Why is everybody always picking on me?
