Waterloo Sunset, 2021

Waterloo Sunset

I had heard it too often.

Last week as Waterloo Sunset ended a show on Radio Scotland, you could almost hear me scream “I never want to hear that song again!”

Today, Suggs was on BBC Radio 4, talking about London’s docklands.

I laughed at his sea shanty – so 2021. Then as the programme came to its end, guess what he sang?

Waterloo Sunset, of course.

Well if you’d ever wanted to hear the sound of a woman eating her words, while doing a handbrake turn in reverse gear… that was me today.

I was fed up with a classic; thought it needed binned.

In fact it needed laundered.

Now it’s as good as new.
