And I Ran - I ran so far away...

Great tune from the 80's...

In fact the band got a mention in the movie 'PulpFiction' when Jools said :
"hey flock of seagulls where is the shit" ..refering to the dude with the seagulls haircut..

from the scene :
ROGER, a young blond-haired surfer kid with a "Flock of
Seagulls" haircut, who has yet to say a word, sits at the
table with a big sloppy hamburger in his hand.

I've been to Hollywood I've been to Redwood...

There are certain singers whose voices I never tire of.

No one else can sound like them.

e.g Van Morrison, Prince, Joe Cocker, the Beatles, Aretha Franklin, the Rolling Stones...and Neil Young.

I this rare clip Neil digs around in his pockets trying to find the right harp and then plays a new song...Heart of Gold.

Classic in lie show...

Panic in the streets...

A story circulated as the basis for the song is that days before recording the song, Marr and Morrissey were listening to the radio when a news report announced the Chernobyl disaster.

Right after the report, the DJ played the song "I'm your man" by Wham .

Morrisey found himself saying, 'What the fuck does this got to do with people's lives?'".

"We hear about Chernobyl, then, seconds later, we're expected to jump around to 'I'm Your Man'".

The band even comissioned a t-shirt featuring Wright's portrait and the phrase "Hang the DJ!"

here are the lyrics of No.1 hit in UK - Holiday by Dizzee Rascal...

In the first video ' he's talking about the song - nice...

In the second video - he is doing it live in V-Festival...

Holiday Lyrics :

Get your passport and your bikini
You need a holiday, come see me

I know you're tired of the same old scenery
And I could change all that so easily
Don't worry about a thing girl, take a chance
I'll take you to the South of France, like Cannes If anyone can I can
Or we can go shopping in Milan
I just hope you understand I hope you see it clear It really don't matter how far or near
Cus there's no distance that can stop my persistence
It's just a few days in the year
Plus I've got clout so let's ride out

We ain't gotta fly, we can just drive out

We can have a rave or we can hide out

I won't tell nobody let them find out
If you ain't doing nothing let's fly away Drive away, get away
We can go to the club or hide away

We can do what you want to, baby
If you ain't doing nothing let's fly away Drive away, take a holiday
We can go to the club or hide away

We can do what you want to, baby
Don't watch my passport photo,
I know I look a bit loco
And I know that my
Spanish is so-so
But let's try keep that on the low-low
Cus we're going Ibiza
I've got friends that really wanna meet ya
With champagne and a whole lot of love
It's all good darling in the Blue Marlin Ibiza And I'll never let your belly get empty
Even when your belly's full you're still sexy

We can ride speed boats, we can ride jet skis
I'll show you the time of your life if you let me
I just want to put a smile on your pretty face...
