some things look better in black and white
While Californians were listening to drug culture bands like Jefferson Airplane, filmed in glorious Technicolor at Woodstock, we English were listening to bands like The Rolling Stones ~ here filmed in grainy monochrome in Ireland. As a matter of fact we English thought everyone in California went around saying; ‘peace and love….’ If you said that here in the sixties you were likely to get smacked.
You decide which is better, The Stones or Jefferson Airplane.
Actually, I prefer The Beatles.
And we say ‘aeroplane…’

I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date
In the 60’s and 70s we English were not listening to Californian music, so I have never heard this track from Jefferson Airplane before. Woodstock passed us by with barely a murmur The reason I’m playing it now is that we English greet or friends with; ‘white rabbits’ on the first of the month, which was yesterday. (Of course there has to be an R in the month.)
Convoluted I know, and on first hearing I’m not certain I like Californian surfer-dude bands anyhow.
But hey, I like Jefferson Starship, so I’m certain that Jefferson Airplane will grow on me, like a weed.
This track probably sounds better if you’re high.
To we English California is still
Alice through the looking glass
don’t stop ’til you get enough
I’ve been suffering with a terrible cold, or maybe the flu. Totally out of it for a week. Today I wanted some music that would cheer me up
I like this song and this video.
I hope that you like it too.
I’m sorry that I’ve bee out of it.
But I’ve been very unwell.
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.
I owned a mini.
I dated a girl who wore a mini and platforms.
she was older, and married.

I am not certain that real men are;
supposed to read Cosmopolitan
This video is so camp, and the song was such a dance favourite back when I used to go dancing. Like being able to play billiards, being able to follow along to this dance is the sign of a misspent youth.
Just because one likes the Village People doesn’t mean that you’re metrosexual.
But, FFS never tell anyone that you’re metrosexual.
She would fit into a gay band
sometimes, praying is the best thing you can do
Right now, things are petty bad here in England. A prayer can only help.
This is old fashioned soul music.
Words and music by George Harrison.
lets hope this is the start of a new day
everyone should be able to do the conga
I like this track, and I like this dance. What more is there to ask?
A touch of Latin Beat.
Fred and Ginger
everybody needs somebody to love
I first came across the Blues Brothers on a family vacation to Florida, which included visits to the theme parks. In Walt Disney World there was a street performance of Blues Brothers music, nerdy but great. I’ve liked the disreputable due ever since.
A black suit can look cool, but only if it’s clean and pressed.
Once in my lifetime I will perform that at a Karaoke pub.
Before you mock try following the dance moves.
strut your stuff down main street
Another part of my morning routine, learning the ultra cool swaggering walk, aka the Travolta Strut. I have this nailed, lots better than some Zebra.
You can tell by the way I use my walk that I’m a woman’s man.
Stayin’ alive ~ more than only just.
don’t try that walk if you’re a woman
it will make you look like a hooker
elvis is in the building
In my fitness and fun programme I’m teaching myself to shuffle dance. It’s a lot harder than young and fit women make it look. I’m also learning a very cool moon-walk. The Travolta strut I can do better than Travolta.
I believe that my latest flame is a great dancer
Tonight we’re gonna make it happen.
After this lockdown is over.
