This was noticed by a friend of a friend (Hi, Maurice’s son!).

The first 10 seconds of both songs will tell you all you need to know…

Yesterday’s Song of the day was Tracey Ullman‘s cover of Kirsty MacColl‘s “They Don’t Know” so I thought I’d continue the Kirsty connection. Here’s Kirsty with a cover of Billy Bragg‘s “A New England,” one of my favourite songs from the 80’s:

Kirsty MacColl – “A New England” (1985)


Here’s the original:

Billy Bragg – “A New England” (1983)


Don’t worry – I won’t play you a Billy Bragg song tomorrow.
