Owen Paul - My Favourite Waste Of Time (1985)

This video clip feature's Owen Paul performing his one hit wonder on Top Of The Pops in 1985. Reaching No.3 in the UK Singles Chart in 1986, this was actually Owen Paul's second single release and was lifted from the album As It Is.

The upbeat song was originally written and recorded by American singer/songwriter Michael Crenshaw, who had a hit in 1981 with Someday, Someway. The Scottish singer was originally an apprentice with Celtic Football Club, but decided to pursue a musical career after being influenced by The Sex Pistols. Unfortunately, he had a fall-out with his record company during 1987 and took a break from the music industry for 15 years.

Owen Paul McGee returned in 2002 with a new album entitled About Time. Between 2008 and 2012 Owen became the lead singer for the band Ex-Simple Minds, a collaboration between former members of the bands Simple Minds and Propaganda, which included his brother Brian Mcgee. Due to "other commitments" Owen was replaced by Eddie Beggan in June 2012.
