I don't remember seeing this song on the forum (I could be wrong) which surprises me. I believe first heard/saw it on one of those Christmassy Top of the Pops shows last year and thought it was a flu-induced delusion. It wasn't. It's real. It's Bob in a Tom Petty wig hanging out with Santa -
Funny song. I guess you've got to be a Brummie to fully understand all of the jokes and references, but I got a few of them thanks to my personal Brummie guide back in the day (I remember him saying that Birmingham had more kilometres of canals than Venice, and after a few pints he might have said that it was prettier too). Uh, and Birmingham Football Club losing is a well-known fact for any football fan around the world. Nice to have ELO mentioned as well.
Shame on the song for not mentioning the statues of the important guys from the industrial revolution, that's the thing from Birmingham that stood out the most for me.
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
