        This Teenage Fanclub track has one of the best single word titles and is lyrically one of the most apt for some of the comments section of this site :)

        Verisimilitude

        I’ve got a pocketful of words in my brain
        I pull something out when I think I should
        I feel like I’m going insane
        I’m not I just said it cos I thought I would
        I always feel the need to profane
        I’ve always said f##k when I thought I could
        To me this seems so inane

        I don’t need an attitude
        Rebellion is a platitude
        I only hope the verse is good
        I hate verisimilitude

            I can say that it was neither Willie O’Dea nor Michael Healy Rae. And Leo’s a Kylie fan, so…

          No hadn’t seen that will check it out thanks!

          Well I’m glad you ruled out Leo there… only possibility that springs to mind is Malcolm Noonan??

            Knew he played in a band but didn’t know what sort of music… impressed with that choice of cover!

    Hermitage Green- Zombie- from their tribute to The Cranberries in Limerick two years ago.

    Also SÍOMHA, Nile St. James, Shane ‘Dyrt’ Davis, Mike Hogan and Niamh Hinchy.

    IMO one of the best cover performances I have ever heard or seen- super stuff- enjoy.

      I remember Dave Fanning used to host a best song, album etc of the year and creep was the runaway winner for a number of years. Amazing tune.

    Delaney & Bonnie – “Groupie”
    (later covered by The Carpenters)

    The only pity about the track is the tentative guitar playing by Eric Clapton who seemed to be going through an artistic existential crisis at that period and was looking to break away from his “guitar-god” stature. If only he had let loose on a guitar solo!

    I saw the comment last week from Chú Cullain regarding the old folks home, it got me thinking,When I finished lamenting my lack of youth. i am going to stipulate some turntables and a kick ass sound system before I get parked up.. It will be one funky old folks crib!

    There are songs that reflect hope. Songs that reflect pain. Songs that try to encompass the human condition; why we are here, what am i for, what should I do?
    We fall in love.
    We must – its inevitable.
    What song encapsulates that hope of being loved back? a song like no other, sung by a voice that would melt the coldest heart?
    Cupid, by Sam Cooke, that’s what..
