Pick of the pops: The Yip Song

It being the 100th birthday of the great Vera Lynn today, let’s celebrate with ‘The Yip Song’ (1993)* from Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians. All together now:

Vera Lyn, Vera Lynn,
Cleanse us with your healing grin.

* We do know that this song is not entirely respectful to Vera Lynn, but it’s still very fine.
