An Update Of Sorts

When I first heard Mardy Bum by the Arctic Monkeys, I immediately thought of My Girl by Madness.  To me the song just sounded like an updating of my favourite Madness track, well if Madness had been northerners and into indie instead of ska but you get my drift don't you?

Madness - My Girl

The Arctic Monkeys - Mardy Bum

Interesting point Drew. Bollocks, but nevertheless interesting.

thanks for the intelligent input DVD, always appreciated

Only joking drew. Course I get your drift. Having listened again, there's a definate correlation - highlighting the wrinkles in a relationship that always seem to crop up at a certain point. Usually when familiarality hits home. (And often involving bad habits!)

And I do chuckle when I hear the name of that tennis player - Mardy Fish.

Mardy - it a classic word, doesn't sound right with a scottish accent.

I pissed myself laughing at your comment last night but then again I was on the wrong side of 4 large Tanquerays and various beers.

I know what you mean. I think kate nash sounds a bit like madness too, and foundations could also qualify as bit of an update. If at the wrong end of a relationship.

I'd never made the connection but I can see your point. The use of Mardy is quite common round here.
