A long time ago, in a galaxy not so far, far away, I used to post a thing on a Friday night called Friday Night Music Club.
The intent was to try and recreate some playlists I made when times were hard and staying in (and drinking, maybe dancing but hopefully singing-a-longing) were the only goals.
I stopped writing it when it metamorphised into ten tunes with a linking theme, and I realised that Rol over at My Top Ten already did pretty much the same thing, much better. Props to the originator and all that.
Anyway, one of the themes I focused on way back then (for way too long, if memory serves) was song titles with a question in it. And looking back, I find it bordering on incredible that I missed out today’s tune, which I was reminded of when 6Music tweeted this the other night:
The Wedding Present – Why Are You Being So Reasonable Now?
Not least because it would have been an opportunity for me to bang on about Remain and illustrate it by posting the French version, which popped up as an extra track on the CD single version:
The Wedding Present – Pourquoi Es Tu Devenue Si Raisonnable?
Still, now I get to sound bilingual (which I’m not) and a fan of Eddie Izzard (which I am):
Plus a venir. (More soon)
