The Full Catastrophe – 20th February 2010

In TFC on February 20, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Summer is still hanging on with clammy hands.  31 degrees on this Saturday. 

 The segue way from summer to autumn is my favourite time of year.  It’s a junction between the flannelled fools and muddied oafs and I’m on any train that’s leaving that station.

After those seasonal musings, it’s time to cut to the chase and list the musical bits that were sprinkled on the TFC cup cake this week.


Good Vibrations – Mark Marky & The Funky Bunch

Hang On There Baby – Johnny Bristol

A-Tisket, A-Tasket – Ella Fitzgerald

San E Wireless – Christine Anu

Il Fait Beau, Il Fait Bon – Paul Mauriet

Freight Train – Chris McDevitt & Nancy Whiskey

A big, big hit in the late 1950s.  The sound of the song is “skiffle” and the Brits made it their own.

I’ve Been A Bad, Bad Boy – Paul Jones

I’ve Got The World On A String – Diane Krall

Pollution – Tom Lehrer

This bloke was a very clever academic at Harvard, but he found unlikely fame as part of the satire boom of the 1960s.  Cactus Time In Arizona – Judy Blazer

Kiss Me Off – Scissor Sisters

Little Old Lady – Chet Baker

A Pretty Girl – Buddy Johnson

If I Were A Carpenter – Four Tops

Could I Leave You – David Kernan

Between Two Shores – Vika & Linda

Tomato Groove – Lakatos

Golden Brown – Stranglers

Sounds Of The Suburbs – The Members

John, I’m Only Dancing – David Bowie

Some Other Time – Andrew Marcovicci
