Heard it on the radio at lunchtime.

It's growing on me.

Based on the positive stuff that folk were saying, I thought I would give it a second chance.

This time I even listened to the whole song.

Yup...it's still shyte!

Bizarrely, I may be getting there.. but it's hardly a a recommendation.

I think some of the lyrics are brilliant....'if I could sing like Sam Cooke'. I'm pretty sure once I've learned them I'm going to be giving it laldy every time the song is played......

Genuinely the most viewed member profile on the TAMB - 16,500 and rising!

Has got a few good lines but It's a tankard swinging ditty which launches into nursery mode.

Listened to the full song on radio twice now, and yes, it is starting to grow on me now.

S'all right. Not one of their better efforts, but still better than 90% of the dross that is out there

Bizarrely I caught this when I borrowed a colleagues car on Friday which was tuned into Radio 2. Some programme called Jeremy Vine or something. When I actaully got listening there was a 'debate' going on about a woman who had had her eyes gouged out due to domestic abuse. She is now blind and later I read about and it all seemed completely tragic. A litany of warmers called in with the last stating inanely "on behalf of the nation hang in there kid, hang in there" as he sobbed. Jeremy, I presume, thanked the phoner inner and then on popped the PCs.............."let me give praise to your sparkling eyes"..............first line.

Well I just wondered about a lot of things
..but the brightest jewel inside of me, glows with pleasure at my own stupidity..

Jeremy vine does that all the time ...............plus playing plenty of punk

now radio 2 are enthusing about Proclaimers song and playing it every day

took a while and it still sounds better each time I hear it ..............................wee mandolin bit minds me o Davy Holt

Me - though, with all the fruit (albeit in drink) and healthy grub options - it couldn't have been made in Scotland. :d

I'll never be at another family 'do' like it, though... I am the oldest survivor of my wee family ('cept for a really, really old uncle) and I have, previously, been the fuqqer that sat in the cake. And a trifle.

Funny vidyo, mind. :-))
