Throwback Thursday - 1/20/2010 - UK Skins + Cat Stevens & Lily Allen = Win!!!


I have told you guys how obsessed I have become over the UK version of the TV show 'Skins' in the past few weeks. I can not get enough of the show (I am just starting Season 3!) Seasons 1 & 2 revolve around the lives of Tony, Michelle, Cassie, Sid, Anwar, Maxxie, Chris, & Jal... they are the sickest group of teens you have ever seen. At the end of Season 1, there was one of the most amazing climaxes I have ever seen. It was amazing... and during the final scene, all of the sudden Cat Steven's classic song 'Wild World' came on. I won't talk any more about the scene because it would involve spoilers (and everyone should watch this show on Netflix Instant!!!) but since I watched the 'Wild World' segment I can not get the song out of my head. I love the version that the 'Skins' cast did, it ruins the end of Season 1... but it is a great arrangement. I always loved the song.... and now I love it even more since it is tied to my new favorite show. So here you go... enjoy Mr. Steven's classic one time:



Extra Tidbit: I always had a love for the Lily Allen song 'The Littlest Things', which kind of samples the cord progression and vocal arrangement of 'Wild World'. Since I'm on a total UK/British kick and can't get enough of the other side of the pond, here it is... enjoy:

  1. I have actually been on the edge of seeing 'Skins' since they did the American remake and that has been in the news lately. I think I will have to go for it based on your recommendation. I do so love me my sick teen shows. - Degrassi anyone?

  2. Kal,

    Watch the original... the MTV series started out ok (its only 1 episode in), but its sooo similiar to the original, just not as good. If you love Degrassi, you will ADORE Skins. Check it on Netflix Instant. Great stuff...
