They used Zoot Suit by The High Numbers on British Style Genius last night (but then it was about thr British tailored suit), and they're using Have Love Will Travel by The Sonics to promote the BBC iPlayer.
Even as I type, Chris Waddle being drowned out at Hillsborough by first Baggy Trousers by Madness then Town Called Malice by The Jam, followed by Heavyweight Champion of the World by Reverend & The Makers, Away From Here by The Enemy and Pigbag by Pigbag,
I had the Lost Boys soundtrack on stereo audio cassette. Great version of Elton John's Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me by Roger Daltrey on it. And People Are Strange by Echo & The Bunnymen. Not bad actually.
Anyway, back to the thread.
That thing about the railways on BBC2 presented by Ian Hislop tonight, Well Respected Man by The Kinks and Money by Barrett Strong.
I suspected as much because it also had Kinky Afro, and Move On Up, which seemed a familiar collection. But, I don't work from home and don't see Bargain Hunt as often as some. I was only home because 'erself has been poorly and I've been going home to do the lunch.
After I went to see Beryl Marsden in Bielefeld, I put my name down for the mailing list for 'Beat Club 66', the society in this area for German 60's fans. Imagine my surprise when through my door today came the next six months events. First two events - DJ Manfred (the adopted 'Skouzer') plays sounds of the 60's, hmm.
Next, on Marz 28 The Masters of Rhythm and Blues - direct from London!!!
I take it we all watched Jeremy Clarkson's 45 minute advert for the Vespa last night? 1000 miles through Vietnam on what looked like a Sprint or a GL, by a total novice rider, complete with Quadrophenia songs and references, only one complete engine change (after buying a duffer) and one spill resulting in gravel rash and cracked ribs, followed by converting the thing into a motorised raft and taking it to sea.
Classic Top Gear road trip. If you missed it, watch out for the inevitable BBC repeat, it's essential viewing.
Yes, I caught that. As much as I like Clarkson and his witticisms, I reckon he deserved the crash for not bothering to use the centre stand and treating his Vespa like a BMX whenever he pulled up anywhere.
100 Mile High City by OCS and Going To A Go-Go by The Miracles on the 6 Nations coverage.
Recce of Bad Salz done Spence. There's a music pub in town which has a 60s-80s music night on Friday (with draught Guinness). We've still got no phone or internet (I'm at work). Coincidentally, as I type this, 100 Mile High City is on BFBS (which is why I used Scooter Music Everywhere for this message, rather than the Guest Page. See you next week!
