Who Put The Boot In 35 Years On

It is frightening to think that it was 35 years ago today that I first saw The Who live in concert and which turned out to be the only time I got to see them with Keith Moon.

£4 I call that a bargain the best I ever had.

This clip from the film “The Kids Are Alright” was filmed a year later but remains representative of the night at Celtic park where the laser show could be seen from miles around.

Sunday Jazz – Billie Holiday with Don’t Explain

Don’t Explain” is a song written by jazz singer Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog Jr, it is said that she wrote the song after her husband, Jimmy Monroe, came home one night with lipstick traces on his collar.

“Don’t Explain” – Billie Holiday

Hush now, don’t explain
Just say you’ll remain
Unless you’re mad, don’t explain

My love, don’t explain
What is there to gain
Skip that lipstick
Don’t explain

You know that I love you
And what loving does
All my thoughts are real
For I’m so completely yours

Try to hear folks chatter
And I know you cheat
Right or wrong, don’t matter
When you’re with me, sweet

Hush now, don’t explain
You’re my love and pain
My life’s your love
Don’t explain
