Blast From The Past – The Who TV Advert

 

Sentimental post today as I bought the album as advertised above at Hall Audio in Dumbarton in 1977.

The young lady who served me and posed me the awkward question “do you want a glossy or matt sleeve? would 30 years later become my sister-in-law!

I Still Miss Someone

At my door the leaves are falling
A cold wild wind Will come
Sweethearts walk by together
And I still miss someone

I go out on a party
And look for a little fun
But I find a darkened corner
‘Cause I still miss someone

Oh, no I never got over those blues eyes
I see them every where
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there

I wonder if she’s sorry
For leavin’ what we’d begun
There’s someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone

Oh, no I never got over those blues eyes
I see them every where
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there

I wonder if she’s sorry
For leavin’ what we’d begun
There’s someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone

and i still miss someone

“Next Year, Baby” – Jamie Cullum

Next Year,
Things are gonna change,
Gonna drink less beer
And start all over again
Gonna pull up my socks
Gonna clean my shower
Not gonna live by the clock
But get up at a decent hour
Gonna read more books
Gonna keep up with the news
Gonna learn how to cook
And spend less money on shoes
Pay my bills on time
File my mail away, everyday
Only drink the finest wine
And call my Gran every Sunday
Resolutions
Well Baby they come and go
Will I do any of these things?
The answer’s probably no
But if there’s one thing, I must do,
Despite my greatest fears
I’m gonna say to you
How I’ve felt all of these years
Next Year, Next Year, Next Year
I gonna tell you, how I feel
Well, resolutions
Baby they come and go
Will I do any of these things?
The answer’s probably no
But if there’s one thing, I must do,
Despite my greatest fears
I’m gonna say to you
How I’ve felt all of these years
Next Year, Next Year, Next Year

Picture In A Frame

Fiona Lawrie (25th March 1959 - 31st December 2008)

 

“Picture In A Frame” – Tom Waits

Sun come up it was blue and gold
Sun come up it was blue and gold
Sun come up it was blue and gold
Ever since I put your picture
In a frame.
I come calling in my Sunday best
I come calling in my Sunday best
I come calling in my Sunday best
Every since I put your picture
In a frame
I’m gonna love you
Till the wheels come off
Oh yea
I love you baby and I always will
I love you baby and I always will
I love you baby and I always will
Ever since I put your picture
In a frame

2010 Top 30 New and Old #6

A surprise for me was this great and somewhat appropriate track from the Katie Melua album “The House”

“The One I Love Is Gone” – Katie Melua

I don’t know I don’t know

 Where I’ll go or what I’ll do
It makes no difference what I do without you

Oh I love you my darling
But I’ll have to let you leave
Goodbye it’s the last you’ll hear of me

Well I found the bluebird
High on a mountainside
And the little bird would sing its little song

So I’ll sigh, I’ll cry
I’ll even wanna die
For the one I love is gone.

Well I found the bluebird
High on a mountainside
And the little bird would sing its little song

So I’ll sigh, I’ll cry
I’ll even wanna die
For the one I love is gone.

I’ll sigh, I’ll cry
I’ll even wanna die
For the one I love is gone.

Happy 50th Birthday

“I Still Miss You…….A Little Bit (Live)” – Bryan Adams

i still miss you…a little bit

you said you’d always keep me happy
you said that you would always be true
you said you’d always keep me warm at night
i didn’t know there’d be someone else there too

ya i still miss you…a little bit
don’t mind me i’ll get over
learn to live – live to love another day
i’ll be my old self in a week or two
until then i’ll be sad and blue
yes i admit i still miss you…a little bit

you said you’d always be my lover
you said you’d be with me til the end
you said we’d always be together
i wasn’t counting on you sleeping with my friends
