  1. Dear other side,
    How about reading the previous posts and not requesting the same songs?
    or
    How about NOT pretending you havent read the previous posts and come up with something original?


    Why am I not surprised that so many have a Yes on their picture.

    2. Yes they are all individuals (:-)

    3. Oy! I've got a Yes on my picture and very proud I am of it too.

    4. That should of course have been:

      For folk's sake.

    5. That was a good shout, Billy. Hardly likely to get played - Rick Redbeard in, Phantom Band out, one of GIO's little mysteries?

      Delete
    6. Somebody say YES? I'm banking on those muppets!

    7. Has Techno D-Day been played yet?

      Don't think Big Babs liked my return to old blog values last week ;-)
      Come to think about it don't think Bry liked my mid life crisis observation either ;-)

      I'm way too busy for this stuff right now... I've got my Reichskonkordat to draft.

    8. No Phantom Band unsurprisingly

    9. just checked the playlist - they cleverly managed to get mention of the blues but without having to play an actual blues song.

      Delete
    10. No surprise there then. However, as magnanimous as I am I've expressed my appreciation of their vote of thanks for tonight varied track listing. Ach, it's the least I could do.

  2. I noticed, Gaie.
    But I'm sure when the 18th arrives you'll do the sensible thing.
    Just like all those folks did when Kinnock's Labour thought they were a shoo in back in the day.

  3. Don't start me, Adam.

    1. Sitting here as the sun goes down, looking at the Sugar Loaf mountain waiting for the big moon to come up alongside it.

      Kind of like "foto 2" here, but its a clearer day today.

  6. Thanks for the birthday wishes. I was in America for my granddaughter's first birthday (and my 65th). Failed to see ZZ Top and Jeff Beck (Dusty Hill had broken his pelvis) but did see Steve Winwood and Tom Petty at Fenway Park and very good they were too.

  7. A theme made for Norrie and Roxy John.
    Can anyone remember how many Roxy Music / Bryan Ferry gigs RJ said he'd been to?

    1. A Facebooker has asked for something by Stiff Little Fingers or The Proclaimers. Who's your money on?

      Delete
    2. I dont think they should be allowed to play The Ps until after the 18th. Not unless its followed by Sham 69 or Acker Bilk.

      Delete

    2. I might he retiring sooner than I'd been hoping for too.

    1. I myself studied at the University of Life.

    2. You mean you didn't get a university adventure that was supposed to set you on the road to prosperity. Don't worry you missed out on it, for many others it turned into a giant con... but don't tell our youth or Mike Russell just yet. Wait until Friday.

    3. I was waiting for the Billy Connolly punchline -

      "Aye and ye failed there too"

    4. I myself studied at the bar.

  14. Is it counting or just anything with numbers in it?

    1. It was supposed to be counting but the goalposts will probably move as normal.

      Delete
    2. So a good chance we'll get "One and One is One" on then?

      Delete
    3. "One And One And One Is Three" - John Lennon. Truest thing he ever said.

      Delete
    4. He did predict the success of Brotherhood of Man.

      Delete
    5. How about any random songs with numbers in them? FFS

      Delete
    6. I think Born To Add is a shoo in. Can Swinney add? Just wondering.

      Delete
    7. If you're using this blog as an outlet for your political views you should say so. Who is funding you? Will you leave the country after a Yes vote? What does Bruce think about it? We should be telt.

      Delete
    8. Swinney was the only politician who I thought might be able to add. I know Osborne cannot add, Darling seemed to get it wrong by a few billion so that left me with Swinney.

      Delete
    9. Born To Spell coming soon.....

      Delete
    10. Your last few posts have been suspiciously free of typos - what have you done with Norrie?

      Delete
  15. Theme seems to have caused a lot of confusion on t'other side.
    Counting seems to be as hard a concept to grasp as grammar was.
    They've managed to put old Liquid Entertainer into a right spin.

    3. 97% have got the length of registering. Perhaps the other 3% listen to Get It On.
