Between The Sheets / Between The Lines

“What’s that you are reading then?”
For the third time in ten minutes my eye is dragged from the words, and once again I know that I shall probably start all over at the top of the page. She Of The Townhouse has an impish gleam in her eye.
“It is a tale about a chap whose girlfriend wouldn’t get up and make a cup of tea on Sunday morning!”
“Oooh! Romance or murder mystery?”
Darkly. “I can’t say for certain yet I haven’t got to the end……”

Now then, hastily exiting the Hallett Boudoir I find myself among the growing ranks of youtube viewers. Often I feel the resort of a lazy blogger to flag up things and merely add ‘look at this’ or LOL as their only contribution for the day. Nevertheless I did stumble across a real gem this week. It started on Wednesday evening when Mike Harding played ‘On again’ By Jake Thakeray on radio two. A treat for me. The next day I looked it up in the workplace and was led on via a Gorilla to Georges Brassens and thence to Jaques Brel.
If you have the time and the inclination I recommend that you watch this all the way through. And then if perchance you enjoy it, then look up the others. I promise you wont be disappointed.
Back in the seventies this song meant a lot to me.

Happy Birthday Izzy

We all have moments of music that are touching and memorable to a person- maybe sometimes only just that person....

This is a song I keep wishing did not do what it does; somehow it seems so corny, and yet so true, you can't help being moved to tears. I love Nina Simone's version.

Howdy babes. Why is/was this song important to you?

I saw Nina Simone at the end of the video...now I like lots of her stuff. I think her earlier works was actually better then her later work. Probably because Her voice had more youth to it and seemed to have a more passionate tone to it as well. Her later work seemd to be...like it's just a job to her...maybe I've somehow misslead myself.

Thanks for stopping by...I like your blog.

Ciao babes.

I saw Sting sing this at the end of a concert in the eighties. He was good, but not as good as Jacques.
