Replacement van arrrived same time as vehicle tow truck after about 90minutes

In my case it was Emily Blunt.

Speaking of new stuff, listening to all the recent releases by "MARINA" and oh boy is it ever consistently bad.

I might go on in the marina stuff in a day or two for the craic. I was dabbling with princes rainbow thingy a bit too. Anywho was on about this, second go with the lyrics i was more into it. rediculous run of singles going on here though.

My minor complaint is that it took me ages to figure out what song the opening lines reminded me of.

There's this song I keep getting in my head, a really chirpy 80s pop song but I don't know the lyrics and it doesn't have much of a melody that you could hum to anyone and the bit i have on loop is musically fairly minimal, just the beat (mid tempo) with keyboard chords on the 1st and 3rd beats of the bar and the singing over it. I don't know who sings it but it sounds to me like a song that a Scottish or Australian band would come up with.
Think of two bars with a c major chord (mostly keyboard) on the 1 and 3 beats and then two bars with g minor then back to c etc. There are other parts of the song too but I don't remember them. Does that ring any bells? I might attempt to transcribe the bit of melody I have later

Actually the singing in the first bar of c kinda matches the 1,2,3,4 of the rhythm and the second bar the singing is more 1-and-2-and-three-eee, same with the g-minor bit except the second g-minor bar is 1-and-2-and-3-and-4

It's so good I don't really need to know the original anymore but anyone recognize it?
