I am trying to learn this song on ukulele. On many levels, it is the ‘wrong’ song to be played on the uke: its slow and maudlin groove is suited to something a little deeper.
So I began to search on youtube to see how it was actually performed and if there was scope to alter it. I came across this clip: I had forgotten just how powerful and disturbing ‘Trainspotting’ is, even though it is one of my favourite films. The juxtaposition of the song and the film is darn near perfect though.
