Week 2 - Fri 8th Jan
Welcome to the RPM Seven Day Soundtrack, week ending Friday 8th January 2021. Here's more tunes to hopefully maintain your sanity in what is increasingly becoming a totally mental world. Storming the steps of your homes in a good way and with positive vibes, it's over to...................
"Honest, you couldn't make it up........... on the very day that Doris the 'johnson' (never was a surname more correctly applied) was triumphantly announcing our liberty from the Franco/German Empire (a.k.a. the EU), his father, fresh from his villa in Greece no doubt, was restating his intention to relocate to La Belle Francaise and apply for French nationality!!! And not only that, Doris' sister is considering it too (memo to me.... must check the family tree to see if we have any Spanish antecedents!)!!!! So, in celebration of Doris' Brexit 'deal' and Mr Johnson Senior's commitment to the success of his sons ventures, here's three songs from my collection where the title sez it all................
Hope everyone is staying safe........ Stop press: Lockdown just announced as I prepared this listing but, despite that long overdue step, I'm gonna stick with these three."
"Hi Everyone........It's been said many times, but definitely worth repeating - how brilliant is the RPM collective? Cue Fast Show impersonation "RPM, yeah - brilliant"!!
"I hope you're all safe and well.....we will get through this. Here's a sample of what I've been listening to this week."
"Happy New Year to you and all RPMers. Here's my 3 for this week."
Magic Bus by The Who - "Great toe tapping stuff from the boys."
"Three glam/art rock covers."
Walk on the Wild Side performed by Jamie J Morgan -
"Sorry they were late.........."
"In view of the past week's events, here's a little musical calm....perhaps musical meditation, even. So, close your eyes and open your ears and drift away......."
Theidh Mi Dhachaigh (Return To Kintail) performed by Alasdair Fraser - "Such a hauntingly beautiful tune from a perfect album. Alasdair Fraser is accompanied by guitar virtuoso Tony McManus on much of this album.........the title track, however, is a solo fiddle piece which closes the CD."
