Well, 2009 probably won't go down as one of the best years in recent memory - lots of pain and angst in the world these days. But I came across this video from Take That and it brightened my day. I'm not exactly into "boy bands" (like, not at all) but this is the best Queen-like song I've heard since Mika's "Grace Kelly" (which actually came out a year later, in 2007).
It won't save the world, and isn't likely to change your life, but it makes me smile.
Happy New Year, see you in twenty-ten!
