It seems OK to have a black TV presenter on Ghanian TV, I wonder if they have woke idiots telling them they should have a white man?


Good point Jacq !

Once it gets going Mike it's cheerful and makes you want to sing along. :)

We seem to be overdosing on black people on the tv.. I think every race should get a look in.. but it's getting ridiculous.. People are scared of being called racist so they go overboard ..
 
You don't see many Chinese on our tv... Bloody disgrace.. They should complain..

I like this "love gone sour" song but only because of Kirsty McColl.  She knew how to act a song to make it real.  I tend to relate it to another song of this type by The Beautiful South.  That video was really good and the girl really made you feel the indignity and come-uppance of it all.  Less bleak [and more amusing] than the Shane whathisname song.  Plus the bloke is worth looking at, even being an introverted wimp.  I give you "I need a little time":

Well, I had a listen and a look and, given my druthers, I'd have to prefer Fairy Tale of New York..But I would say that because it's slightly more to me than a great song..
 As a non-too attractive man, may I say that to comment on Shane MacGowan's appearance was a low blow..Not a lot he can do about that, though I understand he's overcome his dentophobia and has had his teeth fixed. (And not before time imho) and he did co-write the thing..Then you have Ewan MacColl's little lass getting run over by a suspicious speedboat..It's a song I'm fond of and you never know, it might prompt those boys at the NYPD to start a choir..
