I love Grace Under Pressure. Hearing the Youth Orchestra sing it at the Halle gigs was amazing. A beautiful moment that brought tears to my eyes.

I would rather sing along to GUP than ODLT. I actually skip past ODLT now I just don't like it anymore, far too much overkill.

GUP has grown on me and is now one of my favourites.

I think GUP is one of the best older songs of theirs, I really like it! But agree the whilstle / scream towards the end is annoying!

Damn I had never noticed the whistle until it was mentioned. Now it does my head in when I hear it!!

I like the scream, can't say why though. Sits nicely with the kazoo in flying dream i guess.

I have come up with a little prototype design of a tattoo that I would actually love to get, if I wasn't such a giant wussy. But it has my favorite lines from GUP (We still believe in love, etc...Very Happy ) and a tribal heart, which basically says it all for me. I wish I wasn't such a weenie because I would love to take that sentiment with me everywhere I go and share it with the world! Probably wouldn't be too helpful when I had to go to parent-teacher conferences or meetings with my bank manager, but there you go... Laughing

I listen to Garrison Keillor's "Writer's Almanac" podcast every day, and today's episode mentions the origins of the phrase "Grace Under Pressure."

And it's a surprising origin, too! I would not have expected it from that particular writer.

I'll leave you in suspense. Check out the Writer's Almanac website here.
