He Has Got a Clue

I’m a big fan of I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, not least because of the complex and devious nature of the rules of the games the teams play. But perhaps the most arcane is One Song to the Tune of Another. The towering intellect that is Humph has tried many times, likening a song to a car, a jam roly poly, nuclear physics and, my personal favourite, the sandwich.

The outcome can be both chaotic and harmonious, often at the same time. Who can forget the words of Love Me Tender to the tune of the Archers? believe me, it works sublimely well. However, I felt I had to share this one with you and damn the expense, bother and my lack of technical know-wots. Rob Brydon sings Anarchy in the UK to the tune of Just When I Needed You Most.

Here it is. Sorry about the poor quality. A recording of a recording and all that. He can sing though. Then he is Welsh.

    Hehe, great stuff. I do miss good old silly English radio… Just don’t get the chance to stream it online over here right now!

    I’ll post some more clips if I can,

    It reminds me that I should have contributed to your efforts. I visited the website, but got bamboozled.

    So here’s the promise — finish the trek and the contents of my change jar is yours (or theirs) and I do chuck in everything 50p downwards.

    Just tell me how to hand it over!

    Easiest way would be to drop it into the bank and PayPal it over to them, or bank tranfer it to me or my parents.

    Or if you fancy a beer sometime, I’ll be trecking round the UK (in a car!) when I get home 🙂

    Tell you what Mosh, I’ll keep chucking the shrapnel into the jar. Just say “finish” and whatever is in there goes in the pot.

    We’ll work out how to hand it over then.

    But regardless, if you ever find yourself in the People’s Republic of Mancunia, let me me know and I promise a pint or three.

    Oh, and I’ve added your logo to my site. Should add all of 20p to the cause!
