Seán O'Rourke accidentally reads out Fun Lovin' Criminals lyrics on Radio One

Barry White, saved my life…


THIS MORNING RETIRING High Court judge Barry White appeared on Today with Seán O’Rourke on RTÉ Radio One, to talk about his time serving in his robes.

Someone chanced their arm sending this tweet in to the show:

Which is of course a lyric from the Fun Lovin’ Criminals’ song Barry White.

And… they read it out (here at 56 mins 30 seconds)! What a time to be alive!

O’Rourke issued a clarification shortly afterwards, but we all heard it. We all did.
