Twenty years after the original frog song, We All Stand Together, went to number 3 in the U.K. charts, Paul has released another children's song.
"Tropic Island Hum" is the title of a new children's animation film created by Paul.
The film introduces a new cartoon character, "Wirral the Squirrel" a cheeky scouse squirrel, on his adventure to an island animal sanctuary.

Both of the songs and the films they are from feature on Paul's new DVD "The Music and Animation Collection" released 27th September 2004.

I have a 7" Limited edition on yellow vinyl, and a promo C.D. version.
The 7" has the words on the rear of the sleeve.

Although both feature a traditional Parlophone number, neither mention Parlophone anywhere.

The single entered the U.K. charts on 26th September 2004 at number 21.
Second week in the chart the single slipped down to number 39.
Third and final week in the chart the single fell 26 places to no. 65.
