The baton was handed over from Andy to Hikaru at at the end of this show (#224) as the former prepared to head overseas and the latter returned from NZ oozing full cream dairy goodness, not to mention Bambi Burgers.
TFC will be Hikaru’s domain until mid October and he has plans !
He has already been pulling rabbits out of hats.
The idea is that it’ll be the same (whatever that is) but diferent, or is that different (whatever that is) but a bit the same ?
Going solo is a bit daunting at any time, but rest assured the ethos of The Full Catastrophe is in the safest hands I can imagine.
So stay tuned and be ready to take another excursion on TFC’s magical musical mystery tour.
The Marrow Song – Kenneth Williams
The perfect TFC song ?
Elusive Butterfly – Bob Lind
Come On, With The Come On – Cab Calloway
Llovio – Ellas
E Depois Do Adeus - Paulo de Carvalho
This song means so much to both Hikaru & I. Our discussion of it & its impact on history during JoyEurovision.com was a highlight of the project. E Depois Do Adeus helped signal the start of the Carnation Revolution in Porugal in 1974. Some commentators snigger at the very suggestion of a Eurovision song starting a revolution, but I don’t think they listen properly to “E Depois Do Adeus’ or think of what it means to the people of Portugal. It won just three points, but it changed a country.
I remember loving it as a 15 year old and I re-found it thanks to Hikaru.
