#Quote
1I thought Wet Wet Wet's version [of "Love is All Around"] was great. When I heard it, they sent me a tape to see what I thought of it. I put a cup of tea to my mouth and took a swig, and it came on with those big heavy chords (we did it gently) and I spit tea all over the room. And all of a sudden he started singing and I thought "wow!" [interview on BBC 6 Music in March 2010]
