I thought I would talk about that line from 'weekend' which comes near the end of the song. I planned to propose to my wife whilst on a short trip to play in Norway with BMX Bandits a few years ago. She had identified the ring she wanted from a little antique shop in Finnieston, Glasgow and I knew that if I wanted to get it for going to Norway, I had a very short window. I had no money and I scrabbled around, still a pound short, to get this ring. In despair, I was about to give up when I found a pound coin in the ashtray of the car. That allowed me to get the ring to take to Norway.
A few days later, in the beautiful town of Egersund, I proposed in a restaurant where a Norwegian choir happened to be dining. When they saw what was going on they came over and sang us a romantic accapella song and poured us some champagne.
