I didn't see it, but had dh not been in I would have had the tv on and listened to him crooning in the background. Not because I particularly like him but my mum was a big fan and had all his records and videos. And I will admit that I have found myself singing along when I hear the music without the words, because I know all the words!
When I hear him singing or hear any of his songs it brings back a lot of happy memories of my mum.

'Mandy' reminds me of Christmas in the late 70's or early 80's, can't remember the year, when I got a play doh barber shop for Xmas!!!
'I write the songs' reminds me of a drive home from swimming on a Friday night when I was about 8 - it was dark and I was tired and I was leaning my head on the window looking at the rain and it was playing in the car!
Even though a lot of it is nostalgia, I think he is ultra-talented....though he can't dance his way out of a paper bag!!!

Can we stop talking about Robbie in the same breath as Barry!!???? And on MY Barry thread?!!?!?!
Can't stand Robbie - jumped up little git!
JoolsToo - as far as I'm aware Barry is not mine or my brother's father!! If so, we have both been very lucky to avoid inheriting his nose!! Not sure about my other brother though!! If any one of us was Barry's it would be him !

That's the thing about Robbie - although I love him, I sometimes think he's a jumped up little t*.
And someone said to me the other day in a very sarcastic tone "oh, I'd have never guessed you were a Libran". I wasn't sure whether it was an insult or not. I decided to take it as a good thing.
