On a ship called Dignity

In honour of my sisters' first T in the Park festival in Edinburgh tomorrow, here's Scottish group Deacon Blue (who are on the bill on Saturday) performing their first hit, Dignity, in Glasgow, 2006. Normally I don't enjoy it when bands let the audience sing their songs for them, but it's hard to avoid the bonhomie in this performance. The single was written by singer Ricky Ross and was taken from the band's million-selling 1987 debut album RaintownIt reached no.31 in the UK pop charts (plus a charting of no.20 when it was re-released in 1994). Deacon Blue have chalked up 16 top 40 singles in the UK.
