Fran Healy Performs Exclusively for Us Magazine

Fran Healy recently joined up with UsMagazine.com to perform an acoustic rendition of "Fly In The Ointment," a song Fran wrote after finding inspiration from his son.

"I wrote 'Fly In The Ointment' with my son in mind. I wanted to write something which contained reference points for him: meeting a snail, flying beside a jumbo jet. It's got a Lewis Carroll vibe. He loved it," he explains to Us.
