S’ok, no leftie politico ranting here this time.
A little while ago, I got a bit carried away enthusing about “T2: Trainspotting”.
Somehow, I managed to do that without posting this gorgeous track, which featured heavily in the film and the trailers.
If you’ve never heard it before, leave your preconceptions at the door, disregard their name and give it a listen.
I don’t think I’ll be giving too much of a spoiler if I point out that the music playing under a soliloquy by Ewen Bremner (aka Spud), officially credited to Underworld, bears an uncanny resemblance to it.
You remember Spud from the first film, right? Hapless, bed-crapping, interview-fluffing, loveable Spud. And because Spud is so haplessly loveable, this tune is all the more heart-breaking:
Hankies at the ready, folks.
No, no, I’m alright, just got something in my eye, that’s all.
More (and no more cheerful) soon.
