Goodness, I'm having a good week.

Talentless bogbrush-eyebrowed Bolivian busker Chris de Burgh has claimed in an interview to have "miraculous powers". I can vouch for this. Whenever he comes on the radio things fly around the room and I develop an involuntary and temporary form of Tourettes that miraculously subsides the moment the frightful noise stops. Praise be...

I sense a little tension in your recent compositions. Are you sure a nice cup of coffee wouldn't help? Surely there must be a Starbucks in Crewe town centre?

If there were (there are a couple of enterprising local ones, actually), I couldn't visit at the moment. As far as I know, there isn't one in Ashford either, which is where we've been for the past two weeks and will be for the next three. Pass auf, Mr Scurra.

He is a twat though.

Miraculous powers?

The man can't even write a decent song.

Yes he sang the Lady in Red then went off and shagged the nanny.
And his margerine is rubbish.
I didn't know he was Bolivian though.

No he's not, he was born in Argentina but that wasn't as alliterative. Not for Chris de Burgh is there a "Live at Budokan" or "The Cleveland Agora" you get "Live in Dortmund".? That's like German for Wolverhampton, isn't it (Steve?). Ever seen Bill Baily's "Purveyor of Ultimate Filth" sketch? I nearly wet myself with unbridled pleasure when I saw him do that live because it seemed genuinely hate driven.

Didn't he also sing "It's my life?"

Carmenzta, he can't sing anything. And he has an insufferably inflated opinion of himself. Genuine, "The ego has landed" stuff.

I am Hi-ghii-ii-ghii-ii-gh on emotion after reading this.
Christopher is an object for your pity and not your scorn...
although I am certain that Spanish Train must carry some sort of subliminal Manchurian Candidate type message for some assassin somewhere...I don't get it.

Wait what about ..
and with a swing of her hips,
she started to strip,
to tremendous applause,
she took off her drawers...sorry.

C'mon they don't write 'em like that anymore..just its..
gunna smack ma beeotch upside her muthaf****n'head,
gotta lay it down wid ma dawgs 'til da schtreetz is muthaf***n red...

..makes de Burgh sound like a genius!

Oh, no no no HE. It's the shameless social mountaineering. A few days after Diana was killed he was on the radio saying he'd been speaking to the Duchess of York and that she'd suggested he write something. If Sir Elt's Candle has any redeeming features it's that it saved the world from a terror even more inconceivable. He is arrogant beyond belief.

you really don't like the man, do you ? i like his CD 'crusader'. i do. really.

Zoe, yes, the CD is very nice. I particularly like the way it catches the light if you hold it correctly and its ability to keep coffee stains off the table. It would also make a fine target for a .22 air rifle. Mr de Burgh would make a compelling case for the re-introduction of hunting with hounds.

Don't go getting ideas! You're not putting it on our coffee table, d'ya hear?

But he did sing "Lady in Red"

God, I wish I lived there sometimes so I knew who the hell you are talking about!

De burgh wrote lady in red for cristiano ronaldo but change the lyrics for radio space from the original words of winker in red, is dancing on the floor.
De burgh is a musicial messiah.

Listen to the number one single of the times of today, My Chemical Romance with the hit single welcome to the black parade.
Well I believe chemicals are indeed required when taking in such strong lyrics to this modern master piece. "When I was a young boy,my father took me into the city to see a marching band.He said, Son when you grow up will you be the saviour of the broken the beaten and the damned?"
On the edge material, turned, de burgh is a novice compared to these masters of literature.
