'I can make you laugh until your head wants to explode'
Friday 20 June 2008
The Mobo and Brit award-winning artist Finley Quaye, 34, will be performing at the free World Party festival in Croydon on 12 July
If I weren't talking to you right now...
I'd be rocking the conversation with someone else.
A phrase I overuse is...
"After all is said and done, everything is said and nothing's actually done."
I wish people would take more notice of...
The most surprising thing that happened to me...
Beating Robbie Williams, Elton John and Paul Weller to win the Brit for best British male solo artist.
A common misperception of me is...
That after looking and listening to me I could possibly come from Edinburgh.
I'm not a politician but...
I can point you in the right direction if you need one.
I'm good at...
I can make you laugh until your stomach feels like it wants to split open, I can make you laugh until your head wants to explode.
I'm very bad at...
The best age to be is...
There are seven golden ages: 10, 18, 27, 35, 50, 60 and 70.
In a nutshell, my philosophy is this:
Love breeds love, hate breeds hate and that's all there is to life.
