It's written in the wind

Yay, another one from Love Actually.

Of course, you may only know the words if you've watched the movie as many times as I have.

Billy Mack, played by Bill Nighy, is a washed-up British rock singer and he does a remake of his '70s smash hit, Love Is All Around.

It's actually a reprise of Wet Wet Wet's contribution to the Four Weddings and a Funeral soundtrack, another Hugh Grant delight.

"So if you believe in Father Christmas, children, like your Uncle Billy does, buy my festering turd of a record," Mack says on a radio show. "And particularly enjoy the incredible crassness of the moment we try to squeeze an extra syllable into the fourth line."

Here is the original Wet Wet Wet song:

And don't be afraid to check out some more Wet Wet Wet, a great British rock band.
