Sunshine on Leith

I haven't seen Sunshine on Leith the musical based on the music of The Proclaimers.
In the Scottish press it gets pretty good reviews described as a feel good film. A bit like Mama Mia except that it is good.
However, I struggle with Sunshine on Leith as a feel good song as I associate it with a friend's funeral where it was played.
Life With You on the other hand is a feelgood song

The Proclaimers -Sunshine on Leith

The Proclaimers - Life With You


  1. Sentimental Monday - just listened to the second track!!!!

  2. I've been following your blog for a couple of months or so after following a link from either Crying at the chip shop or Vinyl villain (i can't remember which ) but this is the first time I've been prompted to comment. We saw Sunshine on Leith the film during a visit to Granny in Glasgow last week. It is a good film and has made me reappraise the Proclaimers (even to the extent of buying the first 2 albums on CD in one of the few remaining HMV and then playing it on loop on the journey south!)

  3. Thanks for the feedback Peewit -always good to hear a new voice.
    Hope you enjoy some of the stuff being posted.
    The first two albums are very good. From the newer ones Live With You is well worth a listen

  4. I love the song but not into musicals. The song of their's that always brings a tear to this jaded is is Wherever You Roam, class piece of song writing.
