Cumbernauld Love Song



This is a belter of a song from Carolyn McGoldrick, a hugely talented Scots singer/songwriter. Carolyn and I both moved to Cumbernauld as children - although not at the same I hasten to add - and we both love the New Town despite its rather unfair reputation. For those who are not so familiar with the town, Cumbernauld is just outside Glasgow and was the setting for the film Gregory's Girl.

This song is called Cumbernauld Love Song and although it's been out for over a year now, it deserves to be a hit. Rather like the lovely Carolyn herself!

Yep, she's very talented! And the video is fab-- I love singing into the hair brush and the tennis racquet mixed in with the young girl.

Have a great week,

But the video clip really hit home......loved the little girl miming the song, that was me many moons ago.
