Step Inside Love. I Want You To Stay.

leave a comment »

I confess I shed a few tears at Cilla’s funeral today, given extraordinary coverage on BBC News.

She was part of the the soundtrack of my life.  I grew up with her.  One of my earliest memories, probably aged about six, was in the kitchen of our house in St Bernards Road, Solihull. My mum was there, at the sink, and Cilla’s voice singing ‘Downtown’ was blaring out of the transistor radio on top of the fridge.  (Yes, it was Cilla, not Petula Clark. Cilla did a version as well.)

Later, before she went over to tacky ITV, she was the BBC Saturday night star.  ‘Blind Date’ was amusing, the first time you saw it but the Cilla show was an institution and ‘Step Inside Love’ was perhaps the first time that romance entered my young mind.

Someone to be thankful for and a little sentimental about.

Bono On Cannabis

with 15 comments

If I said I’d been skydiving you’d think I was cool.  Cannabis is much, much safer and it’s the coolest thing I’ve ever done.

Gary Moore RIP

One of the all time greats.

He will be sadly missed.

At the risk of blaspheming against Jimi himself, this is almost better than the original!

I can see them both up there now alongside each other, shredding Stratocasters and blowing the Angels’ minds  (or getting blown by the Angels).

Rebecca – I Told You So! – WRONG—WRONG!

with 9 comments

I had this all ready to go!

I think the result is very strange.  Rebecca should have won.

She is the one who will go on to achieve great success.

It’s wonderful to be able to say I told you so nearly ten weeks ago!

She is the one with the X Factor.

She deserves it.
