Macqueen-Pope described Cunliffe as
In 1910, Cunliffe had a great hit with Fred Godfrey’s There Are Nice Girls Everywhere, which he also recorded (Homophone 789; Jumbo 521, 1910). Godfrey’s Who Were You With Last Night? (1912) was Mark Sheridan’s song above all, but it was such an enormous success that Cunliffe was among the many others who performed it.
