"Missing Children" is a song that reaches across the ages - from one poem written by Michael Timmins to another written by William Blake 200 years ago - to approach a subject that still confronts us all too often today.
The song has become a live favourite since its release on "All That Reckoning" and features all the hallmarks of an enduring Junkies song - a chunky rhythm, propelled by Mike and Pete, Alan's lead bass figure and a ferocious vocal from Margo, the song's message spat out with no equivocation. Another classic from the canon, this podcast explores the making of "Missing Children".
