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.
