This is the new regular blog feature. Once a week there'll be a little something about a song that really ought to have been a hit. Well, in a better World, that is. This week it's:
MALCOLM MIDDLETON: "BIRDWATCHER"
Yes, today's a special edition. It's Mikkel's birthday next week, so we're celebrating with a song that we both think should've been a hit. It's got the beat, the fake handclaps, the sad acoustic guitar and lovely lyrics.
