Every good campaign should have a soundtrack – a collection of banging tunes that lyrically relate to the situation that is being fought over. I have put together a selection of songs in a Spotify playlist that all relate in some way to the cause we have been working towards over the last few years. I hope this provides you with some light relief amid all the political discourse.

Can’t Get Used to Losing WILG #SaveWILG

What my #SaveWILG campaign is in need of is a theme tune. I hit upon this idea while listening to Spotify in bed the other night. Andy Williams was featured in this addition from 1985 and was performing his classic hit Can’t Get Use To Losing You.

Without permission, I have took it upon myself to change the words to this popular hit, in order to make it fit with the campaign. If anyone is interested in recording this song I would be happy to contribute to recording costs as I think it would be a really effective way of raising awareness. I am getting carried away with myself now, but I really like the new lyrics that I have created.

Anyway, see for yourself with the video of Andy Williams posted below, so you have no excuse not to sing along. I have also added a few paragraphs from Wikipedia about Andy Williams. I do hope there are no copyright issues over the use of this tune as I am giving the writers full credit and not claiming any credit for myself.

I hope you like my new version.

Guess there’s no use in feelin’ down
Guess I’ll fight back from my hometown
I’ll find a lifeline so I will
Though it will be harder without you

Can’t get used to losin’ WILG
No matter what I try to do
Gonna live my whole life through
Struggling

Stranded in the house I used to know
No one pops in to say ‘Hello’
Couldn’t think of anything  to do
Since you’re gone it happens every day

 Can’t get used to losin’ WILG
No matter what I try to do
Gonna live my whole life through
Struggling

I‘ll find somebody, wait and see
Who am I kiddin’, only me
‘Cause no one else could take your place
Guess that Huw is just a hopeless case

Can’t get used to losin’ WILG
No matter what I try to do
Gonna live my whole life through
Struggling

Can’t get used to losin’ WILG
No matter what I try to do
Gonna live my whole life through
Struggling

Throughout 2011, Nathan Lee Davies undertook a journey around all 12 Welsh Premier League (WPL) football grounds, but before you screw your nose up and continue your search for a good read elsewhere, you need to know that this is only half the story.

The aforementioned Welshman has managed to fuse facts and figures on the beautiful game, with autobiographical stories full of humour and honesty. Tales of depression, disability and divorce are hilariously combined with trips across the border to foreign lands, bladder bursting recollections from Bangor, memories of rainy days in south Wales and much, much more, as Davies attempts to reconnect with his homeland.

Is there entertainment to be found amongst the WPL amateurs? What does it mean to be Welsh in modern Wales? Will our guide ever have sex again? How many people can one man offend? There’s only one way to get inconclusive answers to all of these questions, plus a few more, so what are you waiting for?
