hi all, Hi BT - It's been a few years since my last post - i usually just enjoy reading the updates, laughing and crying at some of the posts and generally keeping an eye on my favourite band ...... But the thought of a new Labour of Love album.... I can't resist adding my few suggestions and after reading 12 pages of posts on the subject, I really can't wait for the album......... With all of the brilliant suggestions, any chance of us being greedy and hoping for a double CD with a mix of reggae and non reggae tunes in a UB style? Obviously, Love Songs, and songs that the Band love should probably take priority, but here's my few suggestions anyway..... I know some have already been suggested, but they are brilliant songs!

Norah jones – don’t know why (think the UBs could make this a massive success)

Half Pint – greetings ( BT always says Greetings when he comes on here, and since I first heard this song about 6 years ago, I always think of it as BTs Theme tune!)

Valerie – amy winehouse and that other band that I can't think of - would be nice to hear how UB40 could make this their own, just as Mrs Winehouse did.

Specials – A message to you Rudy (Heard this one being done in Dublin by a group of buskers many many years ago and helped me get to know more about reggae and ska music)

How about a tune associated with Maxi Priest – Close to you or Wild World? would be a nice twist and be good to see what UB40 could do with such massive hits

Gun Fever – Not sure who did the original but it is very catchy and plenty chance for some Astro toasting on this one

Climie Fisher – love changes not reggae by any means, but very catchy and instantly recogniseable.... another tune that UB40 could make their own

Pet Shop Boys – Suburbia and Pet Shop Boys / dusty springfield– What Have I done to Deserve this...... "old" pop songs that UB40 could re-invent

Bob Marley – 3 little birds..... already suggested loads of times, but this is one of the best songs ever!

Pluto – Dat.......

Horace Andy - skylarkin.....

I could go on and on.........

thinking outside of reggae:

Selfless, Cold and Composed - Ben Folds Five
Good Vibrations - Brian Wilson/Beach Boys
More than Words - Extreme
Lucky Stars - Dean Friedman (could get chrissie hynde in)
Always the last to know - Del Amitri
Choke - Nate James
I was made to love her - Stevie Wonder
You to me are everything - Real Thing
I bet you look good on the dancefloor - arctic monkeys

Some of those could be really nicely UB40'd
