Tunes on Tuesday ~ Chris Rea

Be charitable and loving when winter comes howling in.

Middlesbrough Man Chris Rea is a brilliant exponent of the slide guitar ~ athough I like him best because he likes great cars, including the iconic 7.

Please listen responsibly.

don’t drive a 7 in winter

unless you’re very brave

on the beach

P1030480If I could, I would spend all of my time on the beach.  My local beach, or in Australia, California, Miami, Texas, or  the Windies…  just so long as there is the sea and the sky.  Lighthouses, a cool villa, and a gorgeous woman would be good too.  I would settle for a hut to sleep in.  To be honest, I can do without the guy playing the guitar.

On The Beach is also the title of a novel by Nevil Shute, which was turned into a chilling movie starring Gregory Peck and Ava Gardner.   (I think Ava Gardner has such a look of a dirty vamp about her.)

If your girl talks about the 2000  Armand Assante movie, it’s cool if you not only know about the earlier film, but also the book.

As for my beach.  It’s lonely, cold, and grey down by the sea today.

you’re not just a number

P1020119

When men have a cold it’s like the biggest medical disaster ever inflicted on the human race.  Well, today I have a cold, and I’m feeling thoroughly miserable.  Autumn’s shadowy fingers are crowding around the garret, the sky is grey, and so is the sea.  All I want to do is sleep.  I don’t feel quite human, more like a number standing in line waiting for I don’t know quite what.

The hot California desert calls, and so does the open road, and neither of them are going to see me today.  Anyhow, there’s no way I’m alert enough to drive a Seven until this cold had gone.  When I’m well, do I drive down through France our head West?

Chris Rea ~ Auberge

This music video is as weird as I feel right now.  I may have a fever.  I have a fever, it’s 101.  Man-flu strikes again.

Please listen responsibly.

When driven with real bravery, a Lotus / Caterham 7 is the fastest point-to-point car you can get on English country roads.
