The OP sent me down a Beautiful South rabbit hole. They were fucking great.

Not sure if I’m slow to realise (thread) or I’m turning into my dad.

Yes, I randomly heard one of their songs last week and ended up listening to them on Spotify. I remember my parents listening to them a lot in the 90s but never appreciated them much until now. Pretty much all of their songs seem to be about miserable old couples though

Also never realised they covered Blitzkrieg Bop!?

Right, so on my Beautiful South binge, I got to this…

RIGHT AT THE END OF THE SONG, as it fades and the channel’s “outro” plays, what is the VERY FIRST SNIPPET you hear from? It’s on the tip of my tongue and I just can’t nail it and it’s driving me and my hotel room mate fucking bonkers argh help. (3m32 in, before the REM riff)

Sounds like more than a feeling but it’s not that…

Also the last riff is the Las not rem😊

I think it’s Level 42. LOVE YOU ALL XXXX

(oh yeah, it’s La’s There She Goes, whoops)
