jha @Tvsa I've seen it it's just that I'm surprised coz I don't even know the song

Oh!  At first we thought Matthew Mole was the Idols finalist Mathew Moolman who changed his name a few years after Idols but we've just checked and he changed his name to Gold and not Mole - and only had one"t" instead of two. 

We've heard of Matthew Mole but don't have a perspective on him or the song. This is his wiki: Matthew Mole.
