I’d read that Belly had reformed. Magic.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

The title of the recent Rolling Stone article on them. I'd be more amazed if somebody managed to make Rolling Stone relevant again!

Incredibly patience-testing!

Do you think he thinks it's a good song? It's odd.

I almost feel sorry for him but I think he's probably a bit of a dick. You'd have to be, to carry on like this

Did you see him on TotP? Obviously not because you didn’t post this

They're just inept.

They'd be a bit of novelty appeal if they ditched the studenty sloganeering, I suppose, but only for five minutes.

oh THAT!

always thought it sounded a wee bit formal for a pop song

it's only just hanging on in modern English anyway - it'll probably survive in fixed expressions like 'if I were you...' for another few decades. And 'God Save The Queen'

Oh sure - I was just being playful. And I grew up in the 50s with people saying 'If I was you'. I didn't know what a subjunctive was until I started learning French, and it took a few years after that before I realized it existed in English, too.
Still a shit song, mind

Just. Shit.

I've seen these in magazines and imagined them to be like a modern-day The Jam, but no.
It would surprise me if they were a KLF-like joke, doing it as an 'art experiment'.
