This week I'm at a bit of a loss. Whether it's a result of the slightly soporific, lazy-day haziness of the weather or simply an accident of cause and effect, not much seems to be happening.
Sure, there's the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod happening and Kids In Glass Houses have been busy with the unveiling of the video for their new single Animals, but there's very little in the way of big news.
So, there are two things I'd like your help with: firstly, fill me in if there's something major that has flown beneath my radar, and secondly, suggest in the comment section below the funniest Welsh songs. Bear with me...
I was thinking some weeks ago about genuinely funny British tracks, and whether there's a uniquely British humour that manifests itself in pop; sometimes it's a Wodehousean arch social commentary, sometimes it's a saucy musical equivalent of McGill's work. Sometimes it's just a musical pratfall.
Here are a few examples of what I mean:
You get the idea.
Feel free to suggest songs from the Welsh canon that makes you laugh, and say why. We'll do a follow-up blog featuring some of the best.
