As this is our penultimate playlist before the end of Series 3, how about we take a look at the one song which is common to every single episode of The Cut - the mighty 'U + Me =' by Dan Black? More specifically, how about we look at the man behind the song?

Did you know, for example, that Dan Black likes nothing more after a hard day rocking a festival than to play tricks on unwary fans? What he likes to do is ask a friend to take pictures of people there, claiming it's for a special gallery of brilliant festival-goers and stuff. Then, when the unsuspecting victims are posing, all smiles and innocence, he sneaks around behind them and poses.

It's called Photobombing, in case you've not come across it before, and here is Dan, doing what this blog calls The Best Celebrity Photobomb Of All Time.

TEN photos though! That's a serious commitment to the Photobomb cause. And not one suspicious face among them.

Dan Black, ladies and gentlemen - not just a pretty noise.

Here's the Spotify playlist. It will take you to some strange places, but you will get back in time for tea, do not be afraid.
