Writing to Reach You

"Writing to Reach You" is the first single taken from Indie band Travis' second studio album, The Man Who. The song was written by Fran Healy, who admitted that he had written this song while listening to "'74–'75" on the radio and took the guitar chords from Oasis' "Wonderwall". In 2004, both "Writing to Reach You" and "Wonderwall" were mixed with Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" in the popular mashup "Boulevard of Broken Songs"; the single was the group's first release in Japan and Australia, following their success in the United Kingdom. The song earned Travis their first appearance on Top of the Pops; the single peaked at #14 on the UK Singles Chart. Fran was reading Letters to Felice from Franz Kafka; the video was directed by John Hardwick. It features Healy walking in the countryside and being attacked by a pair of innocent looking schoolchildren, they pelt him with stones and shoot him with arrows, only to find that he is wearing body armour, which he takes off with the arrows still embedded.

He is attacked by a Bf109 fighter plane being flown by one of the children. The video ends with Healy giving a letter of some sort to the school girl that shot him with arrows earlier and she runs toward the camera as it travels further away from the set.

Cambridge Corn Exchange

Cambridge Corn Exchange is a concert venue located in Cambridge, England with a capacity up to 1,681 people. The site, on the corner of Wheeler Street and Corn Exchange Street, was earmarked for a new Corn Exchange in 1868 to replace the existing corn exchange on St Andrew's Hill to the east. In the Middle Ages the Priory of Friars Hermits was located on the site, the remains of which were passed to a museum in New Zealand. Designed by Cambridge architect Richard Reynolds Rowe in the Florentine Gothic style, the foundation stone was laid by the Mayor in 1874 and the building was opened in 1875. A quarter of a million local bricks were used in various colours; the opening concert was a performance on 9 November by the Coldstream Guards and a local choral society. During the playing of the national anthem a mistake was made, angry crowds subsequently attacked the Mayor's house; the resulting trial attracted the world's press and resulted in crowds of sightseers making visits to the building, interfering with the corn trading.

The site was a popular location for events throughout the 20th centuries. The first Motor Show of many was held in 1898, the venue hosted the London Symphony Orchestra in 1925 and one thousand people were welcomed to a Tea For a Thousand in 1935. During the 1940s the venue was used to repair rifles by local women. After the war, the venue was popular for boxing and roller skating; the floor was marked out for badminton matches which were held in the building. A temporary wooden bridge across Wheeler Street was constructed in the 1950s to join it to the neighbouring Guildhall for balls and other events. In 1965, the venue ceased being used for trading after the Cattle Market site was opened as an alternative. In the 1970s the building was used for one-day exhibitions. In 1972 Syd Barrett made his last public appearance at the venue supporting MC5. In 1974 1,000 fans caused a riot; the venue was closed in 1981 after the roof was found to be unsafe and following complaints from local residents about noise levels.

The building was refitted following public pressure and various grants and donations, with the first concert taking place on 3 December 1986 starring Box Car Willie, though an official reopening occurred the following February with a performance by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The venue is presently managed by Cambridge City Council, it is used for numerous touring events, including music groups and theatre groups. Performers who have played at the venue include The Who, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, My Bloody Valentine, Manic Street Preachers, Barenaked Ladies, The Smiths, Iron Maiden, David Bowie, Tin Machine, Paul Rodgers, Gary Moore, Lily Allen, James Bay, Take That, NXT UK, Shane Filan of Westlife, it is used as an examination hall for students at the University of Cambridge, hosts graduation ceremonies for Anglia Ruskin University.

Colm McFadden

Colm McFadden is an Irish Gaelic footballer who plays at full forward for Naomh Mícheál and for the Donegal county team. McFadden is Donegal's most-capped Championship player, he played an integral role in Donegal's successful 2011–14 run of matches, starting every Championship game in that period. Among other accolades, he has one All Star to his name, one All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, three Ulster Senior Football Championships and one National Football League. Top scorer in the 2012 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship, he was subsequently shortlisted for All Stars Footballer of the Year, but the award went to team-mate Karl Lacey. A staff member of St Eunan's College in Letterkenny, McFadden has been deputy principal since 2019. McFadden's club have not had much success at senior level, they reached the final of the 2011 Donegal Senior Football Championship— their first senior final—but lost, though McFadden scored three points including one free. McFadden made his senior championship debut for Donegal in 2002.

That year, Donegal drew against Dublin by a scoreline of 0–14 to 2–8 in the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship quarter-final held on August Bank Holiday Monday, Dublin winning the replay. In the 2003 Championship, Donegal defeated Galway, the All-Ireland champions of two years previous, in the All-Ireland quarter-final replay at McHale Park in Castlebar; that victory qualified them for a semi-final against reigning All-Ireland Senior Football Champions Armagh, whom Donegal led with 14 men until a last minute penalty from Oisín McConville led to Donegal losing the game by a scoreline of 2–10 to 1–9. In the 2004 Championship, McFadden was the star against Tyrone in the Ulster semi-final but did not do as well against Armagh in the final at Croke Park, and so ended the high points of McFadden's early inter-county career. He missed the 2006 Championship due to his studies in Liverpool. McFadden would return to play a vital part in the Donegal team that won their first National Football League title in 2007.

He scored three points in the final against Mayo. McFadden was asked by Donegal County Board officials to receive a presentation on his 100th inter-county appearance, a presentation the player thought inappropriate in light of a bruising defeat in the Ulster Senior Football Championship during which he had been replaced by Adrian Hanlon, of all people. RTÉ's television cameras caught McFadden grinning at the timing of such a request — but all irony was lost in the scramble to condemn the player's attitude. McFadden considered retiring amid the misunderstanding, the calls for his head. 2011 brought the dawning of the Jim McGuinness managerial era, the most successful in the county's history. McFadden won his first Ulster title, scoring four points in the final against Derry. Donegal progressed to an All-Ireland semi-final that year.2012 would prove to be McFadden's most successful season for Donegal. In helping Donegal to back-to-back Ulster titles in 2011-2012, McFadden became the first Donegal footballer to twice finish top scorer in the Ulster Championship.

He scored six points in the final against Down. He scored an unusual goal in the seventh minute of Donegal's All-Ireland Senior Football Championship quarter-final defeat of Kerry at Croke Park describing it as "fortunate", he was involved in the semi-final victory over Cork. He scored Donegal's second goal of the 2012 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final. Patrick McBrearty's attempt at scoring a point came crashing off the Mayo post after eleven minutes of the game, Mayo's Kevin Keane fumbled, dropping the ball into the path of Colm McFadden who promptly slotted it into the back of the net, his goal helped Donegal win the Sam Maguire Cup and was part of a total of 1–4 which McFadden scored during the game. McFadden added an All Star and was named 2012 Ulster GAA Player of the Year. However, he was unable to attend the Football Tour of New York, he was shortlisted for All Stars Footballer of the Year. McFadden made his 51st championship appearance against Derry in the Ulster quarter-final on 25 May 2014, a team record which had until been held by Michael Hegarty.

McFadden's appearance in the 2014 Ulster final against Monaghan was his 152nd overall for Donegal, second only to Brian Roper's 159, McFadden won his third and final Ulster SFC at the end. He scored four points in that final. On 6 August 2016, McFadden announced he would be retiring from playing with Donegal following his team's exit from the 2016 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship against Dublin, he retired with a total of 170 appearances for Donegal, 64 of those in the Championship, having scored a county record 25-434. McFadden was educated at St Eunan's College in Letterkenny. In 2000, he was part of the team that won the school's third McLarnon Cup, the first win since 1979; that 2000 final victory over St Columb's of Derry at Casement Park has been described as "arguably the match that catapulted him to people's attention outside of Donegal". He scored a late goal to give the College victory by a scoreline of 1–11 to 1–9, 1–8 of which McFadden scored himself, his words of advice helped the College to reclaim the McLarnon Cup in 2007, to go on to compete in the All-Ireland "B" Colleges Final, which they subsequently lost.

Soon McFadden was off to the University of Galway, where he studied Financial Economics. There he won the All-Ireland Freshers and, two years after that, the Sigerson Cup, with the final held at Cork's Páirc Uí Rinn, he took his Postgraduate Certifica
