Who is the smotthest of smooth??

No! Not Adam from Rio silly!

However please take this opportunity to list your favourite crooners.....if indeed you have such a thing. This may be a challenge for MadMac.

I went to see Jamie Cullum once in the Usher Hall. He was dreadful but I really like this:

Jamie Cullum - Gran Torino

maybe as I liked the film....

    2. I looked at the old blog to check the date. Your posts had been removed by the moderator. You spoiled it for everyone with your negative attitude. They were trying their best.

      "Tonight Vic is looking for your science and technology suggestions...were you one of the first in the queue for that new phone? Well what are the gadgets and bits of technology and science that have made their way into popular music"

      Some classic F**ebook posts already, including

      "Thomas Dolby, She Blinded me with Science. Hmm, too obvious. Blondie's Hanging on the Telephone then?"

      You couldnt make it up.

    2. laid low with a chest infection, Madmac, thanks for asking; I'm better now. Sort of. 2 weeks till Rum (Isle of); got to be fit!
      Just been searching for lost files on the pc and guess what I found? But if whatever the theme is, is in the jotter then it's pure coincidence, man.

      If y'all click on next week's themes a page containing next week's themes will appear. It's a kind of magic...

    4. Glad yer in the land of the living Gaie, hope you're feeling fighting fit soon enough.

      Ach Scotch, don't be like that .. the i-phone 4 is dying on me & it was a no brainer between the new motor or a new i-phone 5.

  16. SG, you cannot be serious - these are the same tired old themes in a not very subtle disguise. Colours, days of the week, friends, earworms.....

  18. One song sunday
    Has to be
    Can't take my eyes off of you

    We got the sad news about two hours into the hospitality session in the richmond suite (where four layers of security are on hand to ensure you don't take your jacket off) at goodwood races on wednesday. After a couple of seconds stunned silence there sprang a doo doo doo doo do de doo doo and soon we could be heard at the other end of the sussex downs. Nobody complained. It's okay to make a total public nuisance of yourself as long as you have that jacket on.
