In the aftermath of the Newport (Ymerodraeth State Of Mind) phenomenon, the town of Ruthin has got the pastiche treatment from a south Wales actor.

David Garland Jones has created Ain't Seen Ruthin Yet as a direct repsonse to the 2.2 million views of the Newport clip.


"How many YouTube hits do you think I will collect? Maybe five thousand... No I ain't see Ruthin yet" he sings, to the tune of the Bachman Turner Overdrive classic.

Yesterday one of my BBC colleagues here suggested a song called Mold, sung to the tune of Spandau Ballet's Gold. So here's the challenge: we want you to comment with suggestions for your own Welsh town spoofs.

We've come up with a few (bad) suggestions to get you started: Crumlin Dice by The Rolling Stones; Menai Bridge Over Troubled Water and Don't Go Brecon My Heart. Or how about Laugharne Girl In The Ring, Wind Glynneath My Wings, or A Whiter Shade Of Pyle?

Over to you... Add your suggestions in the comment box below.

If you haven't already got one, a BBC iD account, you can register here, it's really easy.
