Minor quibbles aside, Behind the Fairytale was, much like the song it paid tribute to, quite marvellous, and you should definitely listen to it now, or preferably sooner, if you've not done so already.
Mildly Interesting Pop Fact: As befitting such a classic song, Fairytale has been covered dozens of times, by artists as diverse as KT Tunstall, Katzenjammer, The Wurzels, and, unforgivably, Ronan bastard Keating - a man with so little soul or empathy for the lyrics that he took out all the nasty wasty lyrics that might offend the army of easily-pleased simpletons who comprise his fanbase. Happy Christmas your arse, Ro-nan.
Apart from the woman filming this on her phone, pretty much every other passenger seems to be doing that thing people do on trains in the UK nowadays i.e. existing in their own little private universe and ignoring any commotion going on around them. Despite the fact that this particular commotion is being caused by a pissed-up, internationally famous 1980s pop star caterwauling two of her biggest hits at them from literally inches away. I mean, look at those blokes standing by the doors. I hope I never catch fire when any of them are in the vicinity. They'd probably not even bother weeing on me. Arseholes. God I hate people. Not Kim Wilde though. Or you. Watch this - it's quite possibly the best thing I've ever seen.
Both turned 50 this year and both are now published authors - Clare writing fiction for young girls in Tallulah & The Teenstars and John Gordon/Gordon John having recently had his debut crime thriller, Seventy Times Seven, published to rave reviews. No, I never saw that one coming either. Fair play though!
Anyway, if, like me, you're nuts about everything Gregory's Girl-related, you can watch the whole thing here (UK readers only again, alas):
Spike: "How often do you see genuine midgets? I've seen two today already. TWO!!"
Me: "Oh yes you have! (Must be panto season)"
Spike: "Maybe that's it - exotic panto actors from out of the area. What's our panto this year?"
Me (Googling it): "...Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs!"
Spike: "That explains everything!"
