How Welsh are you?

Following last night’s victory against Belgium, taking Wales into the Euro 2016 semi-finals, I was amused this morning to observe a surge in English people claiming Welsh blood somewhere in their ancestry! The result also gave me an excuse to give a play The Opera Song by Jurgen Vries – with CMC on vocals, aka the amazing Charlotte Church.

It was business as usual with Word Up!, when I asked if you could identify the song containing these lines:

You’re kissing cousins, there’s no smoke, no flame

If you lose that pilot I can fly your plane*

*Word Up! was Drop the Pilot by Joan Armatrading:
