Tunes on Tuesday ~ top of the pops

hello guys and gals

Back when I was a kid there was a TV show called Top of the Pops.  You were nobody if you weren’t on there.  Noted pedophiles who were on TOTP include Jimmy Savile and Rolf Haris.  Liked one, didn’t like the other.

So from that era. Or a bit later.

Canned Heat.

I owned a mini.

I dated a girl who wore a mini and platforms.

she was older, and married.

Random Jottings ~ Dreams

her dream road trip didn’t turn out so well

~

don’t ask what your dreams mean

you don’t want to know

~

nothing happens until we dream it

~

woman is a creation of dreams and desires

not a creation of wants and needs

~

she dreamed of finding the perfect lover

and then she bought one

~

OH GOD! she exclaimed

then she realised it was just a hot wet dream

~

real life is both a bad dream and a nightmare

there aren’t many good hotels in Jerome

Songs on Saturday ~ Chris Rea

I’m never going to wait in line again

This Chris Rea track speaks to me, he’s singing about how my life was, how it is, and how it’s going to be.  I know that boardwalk and I know those streets.  I know how it feels to be trapped , waiting in line, waiting for something better….  Not a VW, and California, not Europe.

With thanks to Paula Light  for this prompt.

Pick up up your life, stop waiting, get on and do it.

Get a car, get a girl, and get out of town.

Songs on Saturday ~ Electric Light Orchestra

you know I often stop and think about her

There are good days, there are high days, and holidays.  There have been strangers, friends, and lovers.  There has been music and silence, joy and pleasure, misery and pain.  But above it all there has been the one, and I hope that Life never lets me stop being happy about her.

Even in these dark days there is time to smile.

If I don’t let it all bring me down.

I love the outfits in this video.

United Kingdom cut off from the rest of the world

doctors say that having fun increases your risk of dying from COVID-19
