Apparently, according to today's "Daily Mirror", Postman Pat is to star in a full length feature film.

The plot involves him discovering he has a singing voice and going on an X factor type programme a la Susan Boyle and having to make the tough decision between superstardom and delivering the post.

Thought I'd post this to share with all the rest of you who are parents and sat through endless reruns of the videos.

Just about warrants going in the music section methinks!

But I take it this thread has nothing to do with Alan Smethurst, the original Singing Postman, who died in 2000. Seems to me Acorn4 is going to have a hard time convincing us this thread should remain in the music section....

Aw, sorry, Acorn. I'll give it some time and see where it goes.

I don't want to get too solemnly analytical about Postman Pat, but I think threads that relate to musical phenomena in a wider cultural context have their place here.

I suppose we should wait and see what sort of voice they give to Postman Pat and what kind of material he chooses before deciding whether to keep it in the music section. I would imagine it might not be Child Ballads.

That's Shaun the sheep, Ross, not Sean. And an excellent character too.

Wow, sorry - I knew as soon as I pressed the 'submit' button

It's so humble being pathetic

I love it

But not as much as Blue Cow

All the other cows said it wasn't possible for a cow to be a folk singer

But we know differently

I don't know Postman Pat but I do remember the Merry Mailman from the 50s. Ed Herlahy?

Nothing to do with the subject, but Ross's line:
Luton Town in Bedfordshire
is just asking to be the basis for a parody of O Little Town Of Bethlehem.

Back on topic, Manchester also has a singing postman called Dominic Collins.
