    If I Had a Million Dollars by Barenaked Ladies

    *That should be played on the radio a lot.

    I can’t wait until December to post this song.

    Christmas Dream – Perry Como

    I could have sworn it was written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David, but it was written by Andrew Lloyd-Webber & Tim Rice (except the German lyrics, which were written by some German dude).

    Here’s one which, to me, clearly spells out class antagonism.

    I used to live in a street which clearly had a dividing line between one side of the street and the other.

    One side 8 bedroomed leafy toryville and the other side a typical Tyneside terrace. Guess side I lived on.

    The guy opposite me was a self entitled arsehole (is it politically correct to describe someone as a stuck up ponce, these days, if so that is what he was/is.)

    On rememberence day he used to put on his fucking RAF uniform and put a bleeding Union Jack on his garage, what a twat.

    Anyway, I used to blast this through the open window on a Sunday afternoon just to cause him discomfort. Might not have been particularly politically constructive, but it cheered me up.

    The happy ending is that his wife ran off with the gardener, took the kids and screwed him for his pension. Happy days.

    There are a couple of streets like that on my paper-round, BD. One street has has 24 3-bedroom houses on one side & 14 4-bedroom ones on the other. The other street has 12 2-bedroom houses & 1 5-bedroom one. Imagine!
    The people who live in both the big houses & the smaller ones are nice, though.

    Anyway, in keeping with the rebellious rock theme, here’s Eddie & the Hot Rods with ‘Do Anything you Wanna do’:

    Another Girl, Another Planet – the Only Ones

    A ’70’s song that sounds as if it was written & recorded in the ’90’s.

    Take me Home – Phil Collins

    Another marvellous music video. The woman playing Collins’ wife at the end, sounds like a young Margaret Thatcher.

    Brian Wilson by Barenaked Ladies

    During live shows they change the lyric from, “I had a dream that I was 300 pounds, and though I was very heavy, I flouted ’till I couldn’t see the ground” to, “I had a dream that I was 300 pounds, and during Lockdown, I really was 300 pounds!”

    Surprisingly, The SPGB have become popular in the world of K-pop. For those that can’t understand the Korean, the lyrics are a perfect word-for-word translation of the DOP.

    I think you’ve just outed yourself as someone who looks up ‘SPGB’ on YouTube. 😉

    It was Roddy Frame’s 60th birthday yesterday. A bona fide classic from back in the day:

    “I think you’ve just outed yourself as someone who looks up ‘SPGB’ on YouTube.”

    So you don’t think I spend my time looking up K-pop? Surely that’s presuming
