Friday Music


I really like this film and this song, in my humble opinion, is one of the all time great songs ever (I keep attempting to learn the guitar part).

It is one of the few films and albums that Victoria I both like (Kill Bill, Natural Born Killers, Inglorious Basterds, The Matrix & Gladiator don’t apparently float her boat). It shouldn’t work: no proper actors, lots of singing, improvisation etc, but it does.

Anyway: a Duke Special story.I watched this the night before he came to do a lounge gig in my village. When he came to my house (even now, my fingers are trembling as I write that) with my friend , he saw the DVD and said ‘That is a good film: I have recorded with Margeta and Glenn is a good man; I have done some stuff with him’. At that moment I would have been happy if I had died and gone to heaven….

..and as any regular readers of the drivel that passes for my blog will know, the night just got better and better…

I broke a promise

Once: Music From The Motion Picture

I promised- no more music on a Friday.

I broke that promise. This arrived this week. The first CD for years that my wife wanted to play before me. The first CD for years that we both like.

Perfect, just perfect (the CD- I don’t do lovey-dovey stuff on here)- simple songs played and executed with perfection. You would have to be made of stone or head of the Conservative Party’s Compassion Department not to feel anything from it.
