day one


who's silly idea idea was this...? a thirty day song song challenge. just the thing for kicking the old old girl into action time and vision. pitiful i know. no really i do. aw shucks what the hey...

day one...

"your favourite song"

it's impossible to have a favourite song. we know that. we just do. everyone does. my head's still full of johnny rivers singing it's my own fault what happens to my heart you see i've always known you'd go so that's my favourite today and family affair is pretty much the most perfect bit of 45rpmness there could ever be and all the huge spaces that float your heart in never too much and the big modal chords in mccoy tyner's big fingers and oh you just can't have a favourite. s'impossible. ah rats we all know everyone's is witchita lineman. it can't not be witchita lineman. glen singing it. oh you just know.



and for a special treat how's about sergio's glorious go

sergio mendes & brasil 66 - witchita lineman

One single favourite song? Madness. It's impossible. (That's an opinion, by the way , rather than two suggestions.)

Do like a version excursion so I enjoyed following those links. Frank Cunimondo coming out ahead. Cos I'm jazz like that.

I always thought the lyrics to be about a linesman at Derby County.
