skylarking: (father ted down with this)
Even though it's been about 18 years since Everything I Do (I do it for you) by Bryan Adams was number 1 in the charts for approximately 39847 weeks I still get a vague feeling of "Oh Christ no" when it comes on the radio.

I suppose there are some things you just don't get over.

Songs are like that though, you can hear one and it takes you back to a time when. The Robbie Williams song Old Before I Die came on the radio the other day and it always reminds me of my cousin. When he was a baby he used to sing along to it in that brilliant, not quite forming an actual word way that babies have, "Ooooooooooold for diiiiiiiiiiieeeee"

He's 16 now and according to my aunt he's a cross between Rick and Neil from The Young Ones. He'd probably be mortified to be told that he used to enjoy singing along to Robbie Williams. I'll have to remember to mention it the next time I see him.

Now, I'm aware the economy is in trouble and cuts and sacrifices need to be made, but this is one cut too far: Cadbury's are making their chocolate bars smaller but aren't changing the price. I am both shocked and appalled. :(

Wise Words
