Yr Ods have written one of the best Welsh Language pop songs of all time ‘Cofio Chdi o’r Ysgol’. It’s tempting to look at Lynch and Pritchard as a modern day Welsh version of Lennon and McCartney. As I listened to the set, every song was a ‘tune’. These guys certainly understand how to write pop songs.
We are sitting in Caernarfon Castle on a sunny evening, everybody is in picnic and wine mode, it’s really quite pleasant and the tunes are Summer all over, feel-good, tingly, teenage, soundtracks for young kids to fall in love to for the first time or even better maybe for that first breakup – ‘Cofio chdi o’r ysgol’ could then be that Simon Bates ‘My Song’ or was it ‘My Tune’ you know the one I mean, it used to be on Radio One in the morning the big sob story and sob tune – brilliant !
