Tunes on Tuesday ~ The Great Escape

The past is for learning from and letting go.  You can’t revisit it.  It vanishes.  ~  Adele Parks

Englishmen pf a certain age all have a similar list of their 5 favourite films, and in particular the theme tunes that go with them.  This is in my top five.

Many times I’ve wanted to get on a 500cc Triumph and just escape.

All really great motorcycles are British Iron.

Steve McQueen always rode a Triumph

Songs on Saturday ~ Pink Floyd

There is not a second of my day that I don’t miss her

Going on vacation without her will not be unadulterated pleasure.

but it will be much better than being in England

 

 

Murder of Crows

And the crow called the raven black

And he was far too certain of himself.

Some say that only a geordie boy is a real man.  And that whoever wants to relax in the south is a wanker.  All I know is that it gets cold in the sunshine here.

where the crow commands the captive must obey

 

Songs on Saturday ~ Bruno Mars

A strong woman builds her own world, for she is amazing.

This is a cool song from a cool-looking young guy.

The lyrics remind me of a woman I know.

Please listen responsibly.

a very amazingly undressed woman

they’re coloured mirrors

Songs on Saturday ~ Icelandic

In Iceland, there are rocks, glaciers, inedible food, and weird music.

Of Monsters and Men ~ Little Talks.

(Stop the playback after this song, else get the whole album.)

It seems that I have developed a taste for weird music videos.

This isn’t as weird as some I’ve viewed, but it’s out there.

Iceland is the strangest of places, that’s reflected here.

Please listen responsibly, don’t be a real weirdo.

But then, just don’t listen to a word I say.

steam punk airships are weird too

Songs on Saturday ~ Joe Cocker

I wish I had done everything on Earth with you.  ~  F. Scott Fitzgerald

Sadly, I haven’t seen the movie, nine-and-a-half-weeks.  This super sexy striptease scene and song was introduced to me by a very close friend.  She warned me about playing when I was alone, late at night.  Kim Basinger is pretty hot, and this video is pretty damn sexy.

Joe Cocker has such a great, hard, masculine voice.

Please listen and play responsibly.

Kim Basinger again,

maybe after the striptease

 

Songs on Saturday ~ Babylon

When a man is tired of London, he is tired of Life.  ~  Samuel Johnson

The only people who know all of London drive black cabs.

I like this slightly melancholy track, it reminds me fondly of some people, places, and things.

Looking back in time; I’ve been blind, I’ve been jealous, I’ve been angry, I’ve been bitter, and I’ve been a fool ~ but the love I hold for you has never been in doubt.

Please listen responsibly.

The bright lights of another Babylon

 

Songs on Saturday ~ Leo Sayer

Leo Sayer ~ the original weird Englishman.

But the show must go on.

 

Been to places where ‘show time’ was all that mattered.

Seems I’m there again.

it’s always a show for some people

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Blues Brothers

it’s 106 miles to Chicago, we’ve got a full tank of gas, it’s dark out, and we’re wearing sunglasses

Not only do I like the movie, I also like Ray Charles, and this song, and the street dancers.

Please listen and dance responsibly.

The Men in Black?  I’ve seen Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith do it better.

if you hit Route 66 in Chicago

eventually you’ll end up here

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Roxy Music

jealousy is just love and hate at the same time

John Lennon could easily have written this song for every real man who has ever lived, up to and including me.  Luckily I’m much, much better now.

Please listen responsibly.
