Re: Name that tune

Hi Jill

It's pretty recent. Here's the full verse.

Tell me something, boy
Aren't you tired tryin' to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain't it hard keeping it so hardcore?

wow, as you say, I know the song very well but would never have guessed it from the verse. Quite odd.

Don't know yours either Paul :oops:
The line I picked is probably not that helpful. I've added the previous line.

Or do you need more?

Thanks Plummy. I was surprised to see that it took over two weeks before it was recognised.

I think that's "Dance the Night Away" by The Mavericks. One of the many songs I've butchered at karaoke over the years.

Re: Sad News

Paying a rare visit to the website to see how everyone is getting on. I'm very sad to hear that news about Dave. I met him a few years ago at Madchester and he was just such a lovely person. My condolences to his family and friends.

Just wanted to pop in to say hi. It's good to see such a high turnout for this month's CTC in honour of Gillian - notwithstanding the complicated nature of the challenge. Well done to Free Spirits for floating 8 boats! I've been doing practically no erging due to ongoing back problems, but put in a ...

Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

Currently in Alvor and my back has been acting up, so I haven't rowed since I got here. But it was a bit better today, so I did just over 7k 'just row' at just over 2:03 pace. Hopefully, my back will not react badly tomorrow! I'm flying home tomorrow and at a wedding in Wexford on Saturday, so it wi...

Re: Signature image generator - bug tracking and information

Hopefully, you'll get a chance to look at things when you get back Thomas. I updated my signature yesterday for this season's results, but it's still showing my old signature with last season's results. That's usually a cache issue.

Lower back still acting up and my right shoulder is now a bit sore, so I haven't been on the erg since I did the CTC 10k on Saturday. I'll possibly do a gentle 'just row' this afternoon or tomorrow just to see if that makes things better or worse. I think that full on sessions and sprinting are prob...

Re: June ctc - 10k, no stroke rate restrictions

I decided to have an early go at this yesterday. My target was sub 40 and it went OK for the first 5k, but rapidly downhill after that. My heart rate reached 170 shortly after the halfway mark (bear in mind that 220 minus my age equals 155) and I had to ease back. I got slower and slower with each s...

It's actually name that tune, Jill. :lol:
