Program #49. OMG!! And what a night of glamour and extravagence it was. The Diet Pepsi flowed like Draino.
Part of the plan, was to create a Mardi Gras of the mind – I hoped it worked for you, otherwise the full leathers were a bit of a fashion error….although subsequent events on Swanston Street tip the balance in their favour.
Next week the live and fabulous broadcast from the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras will mean TFC has a night off. But on March 15, stand by for The Full Catastrophe’s 50th program. It’ll be bunting, frolics and careful typeing.
Now…unveil the playlist in all its manly glory.
And if we get lost, we’ll meet by the third pillar on the right in the RHI.
21st Century Life – Sam Sparro
Turn Your Radio On – Grandpa Jones
There is NO truth to the rumour that Granpa Jones is my alter ego. Norah Head would be most displeased. Instead the old bloke brought us a lovely song of devotion and the wireless.
Bedbugs – Squrrel Nut Zippers
What Makes A Man A Man – Marc Almond
Nowadays – Chita Riveira & Gwen Verdon
The original Chicago cast members do it in style.
Vivace (Alexander Tcherepenin) – Yo-yo Ma
A bit of classical to offset my propensity for the smutty, profane and obscure.
Crazy People – Radioland Murders Soundtrack
A film I once was imprisoned with on a long haul flight – thank you Garuda. Anyhow, this is a very silly song.
Stranger On The Shore – Acker Bilk
This was a big hit in the early 1960s. Honest. And he looked like this
Leftover People – Alan Price
One Leg Too Few – Petter Cook & Dudley Moore
From the ground breaking revue “Beyond the Fringe”. In their time they were hilarious, filthy, difficult and totally off the planet. My kind of guys – Enjoy more
13 Men All Dressed In Blue – Southend
As we consider life, the universe and the emerald city – the Newtown Jets rugby league team’s song gets an airing. Go the Bluebags as well as Rabbitohs, Doggies and St Pauli.
Let’s Go Dancin’ – Wayne Numan
I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor
All The Things She Said – T.A.T.U (or T>A>T>U if you are a bad typist)

Ain’t Nobody – Diana King
Murder On The Dance Floor – Sophie Ellis-Bexton
