Supertramp was a name that I’ve always been aware of, but could never associate a song with. It is a problem I have with many old songs/bands: I know many of them, but can never bring the two together. So when I checked out Supertramp recently, I realised that I actually know many of their songs, including this one! Give a Little Bit initially sounds a little bit like The Travelling Wilburys mixed with Queen, but then forges its own identity with the introduction of some iconic 70s-80s sax. It’s a song that was eventually covered by the Goo Goo Dolls, but their version kind of loses sight of what made the original so good.
