We went to see The South, the latest incarnation of the 90's group Beautiful South last night. And what a show they put on! Almost 2 hours of non stop hits and some new songs as well. I saw the original line up with Paul Heaton many times years ago and, although there's now only 1 member of the group left, they still put on a great performance. If you're a fan it's well worth going  to see them if they visit your area. smile

Since the show last weekend I've been playing back through the group's CDs and it's interesting how feelings change over the years.  I'm just listening to "Painting It Red" which I didn't really rate at the time, but there are some fantastic songs on it.. smile

(Try "Masculine Eclipse", "Baby Please Go" and "10,000 Feet". Great stuff!) smile

Me too, I've been shuffling through them on my daughter's Alexa. 

Just listening to Blackbird on the Wire. Never really rated it but in older age it's pretty smooth but the lyrics sharp. I like it!

Also played tracks from The Housemartins and Caravan of Love seemed rather fitting for this forum and present world!wink

C of L?, I think Reet Petite kept it from the #1 spot in the charts.

It did get to No. 1 on the 16 December 1986 but just missed the Christmas number No. 1 spot being displaced by Jackie Wilson's "Reet Petite".

Warning to others!

This thread has resulted in the acquisition of several ear worms this last week! The latest is 'Liar's Bar'.embarassed What a strange track that was.

It seems to be a bit of a niche thread though, micky, just present and past, like me, Humbersiders! smile 

(Is this the right time to mention a certain rugby result though? wink)
