If it's new to you now, then it's going to sound very limp.


I'd agree with this. I liked the song and movie when I was a kid and while not really my thing these days I can still muster up a nostalgic fondness.

I'm going 'HIT', but I wouldn't speak ill of anyone who thought differently. It's sappy, but Art has a purity that I generally find pretty pleasant to listen to. And it has a context in terms of the film, though it was years ago that I saw it so I can't really say what that does for me personally. I have a vague memory of feeling similarly about the movie - vaguely sappy but not offensively so.

Does anyone remember that 'hilarious' kid singing this on Tiswas?

HIT.

Love it. Still makes me tearful. Had the single and the book and the book of the film. *sob*

Nothing is.

Even with my Beatle-goggles on I despise that fucking song.

Well, Moo of Kintyre beats it, I think, and The Frog Chorus may, but basically, we have found a node of agreement, hatz.

I do not have the vocabulary to truthfully express how utterly shit I think this is.
