#803: 1980, The Undertones, Wednesday Week

by Ray_North on November 20, 2013

Amazingly, last night, three of the four mainstays of this most wonderful of blogs actually met up in a Public House and talked in person over a few pints – marvellous (it would have been even better if Bobby and Charlie had been there as well, but that’s for another day).

I can tell you now that we covered an array of topics including Bulgaria and Bulgarians (generally a good thing), Bob Ford (a misunderstood genius), Paul Flowers (oh dear), English Football (Joe Hart couldn’t be faulted for the German goal), German Football (efficient), who would win in a ‘Dame Off’ between Mirran, Dench and Smith (we were split on this George thought Dench, but I have a sneaking feeling towards Smith) and, of course, we discussed music.

I have to say that I was a bit confused when Jackie and George were trying to think of songs with the word Thursday in them – then, all became clear: Charlie had laid down a songs with days of the week theme challenge and I had Wednesday, which, I can tell you is a damn sight better than poor Jackie who has got Thursday. For me, rather than a conundrum, the challenge has given me the chance to post another song by one of my favourite bands of all time, The Undertones. This song appears on Hypnotised, a truly great album, it marked a change in the musical style of the band being a soulful lament rather than a two and a half minute burst of energy.

Wednesday Week, she loved me, warbles Fergal, Wednesday Week, never happened at all.

Fantastic.

I think the Dame Off is a great idea for a new reality tv show – *looks up Simon Cowell’s phone number*
