"I'll not get angry about you and feel sad with you" - I have absolutely no idea what you mean by that - angry because I don't share your taste in music? Sad because, well I don't know really...
I'm sure your world was better with him in it, but not mine - to quote you, FACT...
Hey ho, each to their own, he didn't impact on my world, except to give me a memory of a freezing cold evening, sitting in a car in Leeds, hoping I didn't get frostbite... In fact, he made me cross so there we are - maybe he did impact my world after all, just not in the way most people would imagine... I'd forgotten all about that evening until this news surfaced, so maybe it wasn't that big a deal after all...
I'm off to listen to some Jake Thackray - witty, clever and understated...
