Should Have Chosen “Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me”

From Hansard:

Ms Harman: … I have been thinking about what we should all sing if we were to have a karaoke party…. As the shadow Leader of the House is really the Morrissey of the House, I have chosen for him the Smiths number, “Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now”, and for myself, I have taken a Billy Joel number, “Uptown Girl”.

Damian Green (Ashford) (Con): The Leader of the House is wrong in her choice of karaoke song-surely the appropriate Smiths song for my right hon. Friend the shadow Leader of the House is “This Charming Man”.

Ms Harman: …I am going to look at the hon. Gentleman in a different light after he has shown himself to be a true Smiths fan.
