Great Drinking Songs (24)

This is another of the stompin' good tunes - Elvis Costello's Pump It Up - that regularly used to feature on the Monday night playlist at 12 Square Metres when genial giant Nigel Murphy was in charge of the bar.

Those 'special Mondays' appear to be over now, perhaps forever.  Big Nige has been overtaken by domesticity - wife, baby, house out in the sticks, full-time work - and won't be around to brighten up our gloomy Mondays any more.  We had a farewell drink with him last night, and it was really rather a poignant moment.

Thanks for all the good times, Nigel.  And I hope you'll at least be able to look in for a drink with us again from time to time.
