I think you'll find it was a TANGERINE wig :D For those who don't know, it's the unofficial Blackpool football anthem when we score. They performed it as we've just been promoted to the Premier League.

Fantastic gig, although very possibly the warmest venue ever. The terrible weather was a welcome relief after the gig!!
Does this answer the Blackpool or arsenal question?

As Wayne points out at http://www.geowayne.com the song is a cover of a Dave Clarke 5 song. I managed to suss this out last night just before I fell asleep! I have to confess that I didn't know the song at all before hearing that the Boys had covered it. That was quick work - someone has already updated the Wikipedia entry for the song.

Sorry Nightlife you did try to let us know. I didn't actually clink your Youtube link as I assumed it was foootage from Blackpool, I was feeling exhausted and I originally just thought that you were 'feeling glad all over' - not that it was actually the title of the song!!!

Glad All Over is a shit hot anthem. It's always been a big favourite of mine from the 60's.

Wouldn't be surprised if they were shaping a '60s-influenced sound for the next album...

It's also the anthem for Crystal Palace Football club. I only know this because i DJ in Croydon (about 2 miles from Palace) and continually get asked for it.

I don't play it.

I wonder why Geowayne site says 'almost certainly' and 'if this indeed the reason'. There is no doubt about the reason Glad All Over was used.

I liked how Neil introduced Chris - " ... all the way from North Shore, Chris Lowe!"
"Enjoy it while it lasts ... "

A few clubs have it but none as highly placed as the mighty Pool :). Yeah there is no doubt as to why it was used, the wigs that Chris and the dancers wore was a bit of a clue!

There was a fight. So I was told after.
