Should I ? Or shouldn’t I ? The big question this week was whether yours truly should forgo the growth and/or goatee and grasp the folicles and re-introduce the handlebar tache after about 30 years absence. You all cried – YES!!!!!!!
Meanwhile we bade farewell to the Spring Carnival.
These are the days of my lives.
The Bongolian – V.C.O
Great name for a group of musos. And here they are chanelling Manfred Mann.
Get Down – Gene Chandler
September Song – George Melly & John Chilton’s Feetwarmers
A glorious song by Kurt Weil & Maxwell Anderson from the remarkably entitled “Knickerbocker Holiday”. It is a powerful reflection of how you age and how your place in the world changes.
It’s also a song that requires musicality, BUT not necessarily a great voice.

Burn The Candle – Shirley Bassey
An early Shirl.
What Do You Do ? – Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band
I Scare Myself – Renee Geyer

He’s Funny That Way – Etta James
Never had nothing
No one to care
That’s why I seem to have
More than my share
I’ve got a man crazy for me
He’s funny that way
Aba Daba Honeymoon – Hoagy Carmichael
An extremely silly song that’s even sillier on celluloid.

Your Love Belongs Under A Rock – The Dirtbombs
You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To – Julie London
