This random thought formulated like this: My iTunes starts to play automatically without any human intervention. Yes, this is true, and très annoying. This time however, the song that began to play was Tom Jones Delilah, a favourite of mine and the reason why it is found in my library. As it played, I recalled that this is sung at Welsh rugby matches, which you can witness for yourself in this You Tube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlho6cy3ZdQ
The question is: Why? Why sing a song about deceit and murder at a rugby match? Why? Are the opposing team supposed to symbolize the cheating trollop Delilah? I don’t understand, and if you are from Wales, I would like you to explain this to me.
And to make sure Delilah is stuck in your head and you hum it all weekend long, here’s the wonderful and delicious Tom Jones belting out Delilah like no one else can: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sI5LWwC-cE8
