Blair and Brown would have been up there in the back benches somewhere. Anyone spot them?
Thanks for saving my English degree. this is good entry level Kierkegaard.. regret not taking the CLT module (contemporary literary theory) last year so this is really helping!
I have waited over 9 years to see this again... how I miss that 4later era. I would have been freshly 13 and snickering behind my hand at this.
Thank you for posting this innovative classic. Unfortunately when my daughter, who is a day shy of 12, viewed this, she was dumbfounded by the combination of intellectual lyricism and unconventional musical format, and is now in a state of shock. The doctors say she is helpless. I warn everyone not to take the age restriction warning at the beginning as lightly as I did!
As a matter of fact (no pun intended!), this song is from 1990 and only 20 years old. My parents used to have this album on vinyl. Very ambient/experimental, one of those transitional phases between decades, one of which I suppose we're in now.
then get back to watching Up the Elephant and Round the Castle with Jim Davidson then, if that's all you can manage!
Identical bassline/ chorus to the Temptations "Treat her like a lady". Not saying it's plagiarised, it was probably just on in the background and peripherally influenced it. Like the "When I get that feelin'" Sharleen Spiteri hook borrowing from Marvin Gaye, or "Anybody seen my baby" by the Rolling Stones having identical verse, melody and chorus structure as "Constant craving"
is it "Torpedoes" by Havana Let's Go (cant find a copy on Youtube to confirm)? or alternatively it could be "Land of Make Believe" by Bucks Fizz which had lyrics to that effect. Both these tracks were released in 1981.
Looks more like Sylvester McCoy to me.
Just combed through this on VHS with my mum, which was weird. Apparently there was a procedure for babies not in an agency (so the parents coiuld still be paid), but this wasn't carried out as they told my parents I wouldn't be in it. Then months later my mum saw me turn up on Top of the Pops (0:16)! Good song and message to grow up with.
Ha I like the analog effects and the fact it has bits of the "Pump up the volume" vid in there
especially if the snout happens to be Paul Weller
can you spot yourself?
Ich wusste nicht, dass Helmut eine beruhmte Person zum Essen eingeladet hatte. = I didn't know that Helmut had invited a famous person to eat.
That's true even if it does borrow a lot from "Everybody wants to rule the world"
Wonder how many times that toothy bint "Amy" has tried to cop off with someone in the last 7 or so years with this claim to fame?
yes some birds are funny when they talk, can you think of anything else?
Music like this has make a comeback, just in the same underground way as back in 1983. It was never mainstream then and isn't now. Dubstep in particular draws a lot from italo.
Her husband, daughter and grandson (her only relatives) died in really tragic circumstances, so you cant blame her for doing the living for them.
I think its the old fashioned sound equipment, not the voice that's different.
I remember watching it aged 6. The look of it is so dated. Mystic Meg was telling her predications to someone offscreen rather than facing the camera like in later years.. she also said the person who won would have a first name beginning with "J".
However my next memory is the number 30 coming out and being disappointed. That episode of Casualty wasn't exactly a lot of laughs either.
They aren't the lyrics at all. It's: "A very precious hill,
Said knife and fork to sausage roll:
"It's pinky in the middle"
