Song of the Week - Episode 77

G’day and a big GET STUFFED to all the Japanese Whalers reading this. Again, politicians; it is time to stand up and be counted!

While we’re on the subject of things that get up my nose, a big thank you to the bus driver who pulled out into my path and then felt the need to give me the finger. To all the good bus drivers – I’m sure this is just great for your public image.

There’s no theme this time, just a couple of tracks that I enjoyed this week.

I made an effort to listen to the radio and for once I wasn’t disappointed. While there was a fair bit of filler and inane disc jockeys, this track was a stand out. I was pleased that it was a new release from an Australian band – and one that I really didn’t like in the past. There is just the right blend of electronic cheese and rock attitude in this:

Operator Please – Logic:

Whilst running on Wednesday this next tune came around on the iPod. Again I had filled it up with a random selection and I didn’t even realise which band it was. Probably cringe worthy for all you classical music aficionados but a great tune to run to.

Bond – Explosive:

Again out on the trail, this song just made me laugh – memories from the 80’s!

Nik Kershaw – Wide Boy:

This week’s “chosen song” is especially for my mate Garry in E17 who is celebrating a birthday. I know he’d appreciate this song. And Garry, four chords is more than enough for rock ’n’ roll.

Tom Waits – Chocolate Jesus: – I love the way that clearing his throat is part of the tune!

That’s all folks.

  1. Great Tom Waits video! It led me trawling thru a pile of his stuff, accompanied by drawing funny animals
