 Also unfamiliar with this BigYawn you speak of. I don't read here enough. Mainly just days before and after shows I attend.
 
 Back on topic - The La's?
It seems that the results suggest that the people voting were some 30 somethings.  The La's were huge with that song, still concidered by some critics to be one of the best pop songs ever.

I think that point is evidenced by its continued overuse in commercials, movie trailers, movies, etc.  Both the Las version and several cover versions.  Must speak well for the endurance of the tune (a bit like "Lust for Life"...)

I love that edited version that cuts the greatest lines.  Just because I keep on with the verse as they break it.  Makes me want to go on those cruises.

Oooh... my BigYawn sense is tingling... [/b]
Funny. I guess I don't overwhelm anyone with Clov posts anymore. Hard for folks to make any conneections to BY, much less the Clov. Props to catching the Beckett reference though, few do.
