Home thoughts from a B road
This is one song I always listen to when the sun is out. And yes, it's just because I can. You go for the shameless plug. I followed it and rather enjoyed it.My sky is still grey, so I shall refrain from bopping to the sublime Jeff for a while
The sky here is still John Major grey, and the fields are still dirty white.Still, that brightened things up immeasurably.
You godlike being. One of my favourite ever songs. Hurrah!
This one does make me smile - and want to reach for my loons.I can't resist singing The Sun Has Got It's Hat on when the sun comes out round here (I think it makes me feel as though I'm in The Goon Show).
Ahhh.. at last, someone else who recognises a great tune from the auld days.What a cracking sound, then.. and now.
I have this on my MP3 player and it gets a regular airing on my way to and from work...
ELO. Yes.Remember Brothers in Arms? What band was that?I'm transported to a darkened Jamaica when that album plays . . . so many years ago. strange magic?I've got crossed wires. I'm lucky that's all! LOLAloha, Dear!
Cerulian blue is quite lovely!I enjoyed it very much-
Ah, nostalgia! They don't write 'em like that anymore.
Yes a happy song for happy weather - perfect winter days at the moment
Oh Mr Blue Sky is on my running playlist. I remember driving into Aber - arrived at the top of the hill there with the sea out in front of me, the sky all blue, and Mr Blue Sky played on the radio. So perfect.I am a closet Elo fan - love Last Train to London too and even Hold on Tight to your dreams.
Wow! That took me right back to some happy memories of the hippie renaissance fairs I wnt to as a child.
BTW - you got a big mention on mine this week!
Just an afterthought (my best kind) - isn't the post title a quote from "Dear Prudence" rather than "Mr Blue Sky"?
Good taste, all of you! Thanks for not rubbishing mine.Cloudia, it was Dire Straits. An album I rather liked, although it isn't fashionable to admit that. You could bop to it though.Lucy - Quite right. I was free associating.
And didn't you just love the Dr Who that featured this song, amopngst others?
BT, that looks so like you. But what on earth happened to this his hair? Trouble with bats?
I take it this is a man??? Sorry, no sound on this blasted dim sad old bloody PC
Completely - I missed that (I must be the only person in Britain who never watches it). I notice that ELO's bass player, Kelly Groucutt, died a couple of days ago.EV - I did look a bit like that then. I used to go up regularly to meetings with the Department of the Environment in London. Years later they confessed that they privately named me 'Mungo Jerry'!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyrV9DnoQt4The Delgados' cover of same. Not bad, although obviously-OBVIOUSLY - not a patch on the original...
Chimesey - It's a good version though, which I liked a lot. Thanks.
