I went into a delicatessan in Oxford's covered market to buy some chocolate carrots for my nephew and out of the speakers wafted 'come home billy bird' followed by imaginary friend, so the whole album was on, what a pleasant surprise that was. It was good to hear the mostly unheard stuff, occasionally you'll hear the hits in a pub, this was obviously put on by a fan.

I heard The Pop Singer's Fear Of The Pollen Count when I was in Camden, walking past a punk shop full of skinheads. I assumed it must have come on the radio, but I stopped and listened for a bit and they were playing the whole of A Secret History Very Happy

National express and the casanova singles do tend to be the most common, he really has cornered the market in bus themed songs to go with news stories though.

I had a similar experience when in a charity shop recently, only the song was 'Alfie', followed by 'Summerhouse'. And no skinheads were involved. Just old ladies.

I had a dream a few weeks back that I was at the checkout in a supermarket and they were playing a really odd arrangement of Generation Sex. Sadly I woke up before I could hear where it was going.

That's weird. Last night I had a dream about listening to an Elvis Costello version of 'Everybody Knows (Except You)'. Most peculiar, it was. And very unusual for me to have a music-related dream when not having fallen asleep while the radio was on.

A friend of mine dreamt that she was playing 'Everybody Knows that I love you' on the recorder during the wedding of a mutual friend of ours.

In real life, I read 'My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose' which, to be completely honest, probably wasn't as entertaining (though I like to think I did a good job of it..)

Coming home from a long Kettering Town away game (BARROW!) We stopped off in Keele services. It was about 2am and I was tired and the triple expresso did me no good whatsoever...

And then, whilst slouching in my chair (which of course was FIXED to the floor incase anyone tried to walk away with it) I heard Everybody Knows (Except You) come out of the speakers above.

And you know what date it was? - 14th of Feb. awwwww! I felt a lorra love towards my fellow passengers in Keele services Razz

I can't remember seeing TDC on a music channel either. Whenever I turn one on, I am treated to The Ordinary Boys. Woop.

Hearing/seeing it played on the huge screens in the Virgin Megastore on the Champs Elysees was quite an epic experience. The "Whoah" bits were echoing around the place, which was fantastic.

Diva Lady was playing in Matalan when I was last in. I was in the changing rooms so I was singing (cough) along. When I came out the cubicle there was a spotty charv with a permanent slouch frowning at me. I made a hasty exit.

Yesterday Studio Brussel, the most alternative of Belgian radio stations, quite unexpectedly played Diva Lady, while they NEVER play any TDC.
Of course I went a little crazy then Smile

A very average meal out last Wednesday. Slightly redeemed by the fact that they played National Express in the loos.

A mate of mine in our building, who's doing a PhD in German, often listens to Berlin station Radio Eins. Last week we popped over to the campus supermarket and on the way back I realised she was singing 'Diva Lady', despite the fact that by her own admission she really doesn't know the music of TDC. Apparently Radio Eins had been playing it!

Saturday evening, Dublin 3. ARJ and Papa ARJ are leaving Croke Park (giant GAA stadium) after watching a gaelic football match and half of another. What suddenly comes wafting down the street after them, being played as part of the half-time musical entertainment? National Express. Anyone that knows the GAA will know that it and TDC don't seem natural bedfellows, but I was chuffed.

I didn't hear the Divine Comedy at all today, anywhere.

I'll keep you all in the know should the situation change.
