  6. Cinthya Olguín says:

    Oh, just perfect, Fran!!!! the song, the video, the sheep. I love the sound of the song, something nostalgic about your voice… Perfect, brilliant! Thank you for the music! It will be great if you could make a concert iin México… Oh, we miss you Mr. Healy! Kisses and buttercups!!!

  7. Kelly says:

    Loved it! Very simple, sweet, but clever concept. Although at the very beginning, before the girls began to appear, I kept thinking of all of your recent BO-filled cab rides!

  8. Charles Henry says:

    Great Video Fran..although what is that sheep doing in it…I thought you were a vegetarian. I went along to the Glasgow gig with a relation of yours, John McAtear, and we both thought it was fantastic. Hurry back.
    FH “What relation is he to me? Gimme some details. Who’s his father grandfather etc…”

  9. Charles Henry says:

    Alec McAtear was John’s dad. John told me his uncle Ambi was Alec’s brother and also he had an aunt called Marion. I’ve known John for years Fran, we grew up as teenagers in the early 70’s in Ibrox. John never spoke about his relatives and it’s only recently he told me about the connection. Hope this helps.
    FH “Marion is my mum. She was Amby’s daughter and so is more likely to be the cousin of John if his dad was Alec… How old is John?”

  10. Charles Henry says:

    John’s 55 years old Fran. Alec was married to Susan and they had 3 children, John, Jim and Geraldine. The family lived in Ibrox since the late sixties, moving from Drumoyne. I met John at St Gerards and we’ve been mates since then.
    FH “Marion, my mum is his cousin then. Cool.”

  11. Fatalka says:

    I absolutely rejoice in another artistic success of yours!

  12. Amelie says:

    Absolutely loved it! What I love is that know matter how deep the lyrics of a song are you manage to get a funny part in it! beeeeeeee 😀

  13. Martyna says:

    Sheep is owesome!!! Lovely song… In my video it would be sth like that “Fran Hayely, love at first hear 2003 everlasting”

  14. Martyna says:

    sorry for the “y” 😀

  15. Elodie says:

    I want you to play in SF or in Berkeley in October after your gig in LA. Period. 🙂

  16. Stevie Jones says:

    That’s a great song you’ve made there! video’s good too, good work.

  17. Charles Henry says:

    Is there a 7″ vinyl single being released for Buttercups, or even a CD single? Please don’t say it’s an mp3 download Fran.

  18. Annie says:

  25. Niko says:

    Dieses Video enthält Conten von WMG. Es ist in deinem Land nicht verfügbar. You have probably noticed this by now too, Fran.
    I have to say that WMG pisses me off!

  26. Park says:

    It’s really really hard to find ‘wreckorder’ in my country (s korea).
    I really want to buy it. I can buy that album from Itunes but

  27. Noel Kang says:

  29. Carla says:

    Wow, this song is just magical, the video was quirky and funny as well as being a little naughty.
    Love it. Good luck with touring Fran.

  30. ozan says:

    You make me sing from the first time I hear your melodies!
    And all the time I keep listening them 50times!
    But how can you come out with such lovely melodies? I mean, especially in the time we are living: with the damage human beings giving to our planet…
    The melodies, the songs you are in makes me forget about all this ugly stuffs, takes me to a world so positive!
    Thank you so much Fran:)
    See you…

  38. Rebecca says:

  39. ella says:

    I must admit I was unfamiliar with your music before I saw you open for Brandon Flowers in Seattle. I was blown away. You were so charming and funny. Oh, and what a beautiful voice! Now I can’t get enough of you and Travis! So glad to have your music in my life now. Your name dropping between songs worked on me 🙂

  40. Livia says:

    Hey Fran, I went to both your gigs at the Bush Hall and at the Garage in London and wanted to send you a photo of my friends and I with you. Where can I send it to?

  41. Aubrey says:

    I dont remember if I told you this before, but this video is amazing and GORGEOUS! The cinematography, the lighting, you, all brilliant and stunning! The storyline is unbelievably cute! My mum and I just adore this video <3

  42. Jan says:

    Quirky video works well with the ballad. Look forward to seeing u in the live tonight at Rams Head. Thanks for the ticket and the inspiration to go hear some tunes.

  43. Margarette says:

    I just viewed the video for the first time after hearing you telling the behind the scenes story from your Rams Head, Annapolis show last night :). It’s funny and brilliant as always.

  44. Lisa says:

    Bonjour Fran, with two years late (that’s usually how slow I catch up with whatever “was” fashionable), I say it rocks ! Ok, what’s the point, there’s nobody here anyway. I’ll just watch the video again. Hahaha !
