I'm not Craig, but it's "your mileage may vary".
Did you get to U2 last night Russell? Once again, some absolutely sublime moments (though only being 4 years since the last show, it didn't surprise as much as the Vertigo tour show - Bono doing The Pav's parts in Miss Sarajevo, for example). We got $40 tickets, and at that price took 2 of our primary school aged kids, who loved it, even if the 7 year old did fall asleep for an hour in the middle - way past his bedtime.
Fans had organised on u2fanz.com to blow up red balloons during One Tree Hill and release them when Bono sang And the moon has turned red over One Tree Hill.
Nobody knew that the song would be dedicated to the miners, and their names would start scrolling on the screen just a few seconds after that moment.
You can watch it here, it was an amazing emotional moment last night, though the footage doesn't quite do it justice. You can see Bono getting choked up and missing a couple of words in the next line.
Tim Finn - Barry's Haka - The delightful tale of the elder Finn's classmate Barry. He was prone to stop and perform a Haka every time the school notices were read out and Te Awamutu primary teams had won a weekend sporting fixture. Years later when Tim brought The Herbs on board to re-record the tune, they decided to rework the lyrics somewhat to keep the Maori theme, but change focus from Barry to Te Whiti.
@David. The two movies cover The Hobbit and beyond leading up to the events of The Fellowship of the Ring, using Tolkein's notes and bits and pieces from his other Middle Earth stories to guide the plot.
At least, that's what I understand.
If Mr Leyland is this guy (whom I remember lecturing me at University), it's Bryan, not Brian.

Here's Stevie Wonder and a different group of mates tackling the same song...
