I don’t know why “Good Fortune” didn’t do very well on the charts. It failed to even chart on the US Alternative Rock chart – the place where her singles normally do well. In her native Britain, the song narrowly missed the Top 40 by placing at the #41 slot.
“Good Fortune” was written by Harvey and was produced by her, Mick Harvey (no relation), and Rob Ellis. Mick Harvey normally supports Nick Cave while Ellis was P.J. Harvey’s former drummer.
