I (Heart) TS .....



..... for today's SoD how about a bit of TS ......

although in this first SoD .....
I reckon she has been watching Ane Brun in action

...... TS gets bit of a raw deal from the press [as you will hear later]
 but to be fair she is indeed a fine singer ....  

..... and this is the best bit ..... TS (Heart) Me too......how do I know this ? ....
well at 1:20 in to the song she turns to me and looks me straight in the eyes, 
that knowing look .......and if to reaffirm this, she has 
another cheeky sideways glance at me at 2:15 ..... oh it's love alright ....


what a fabby tune

And if proof were needed that TS (Heart) Me .... then in this tune, I swear to god ......



 at the end of the song she has a blank space and she's gunna write my name in it

...... and to seal the deal ? ....

she click click winks me .....

proof positive that........ TS (heart) me ......

But to show just what a great singer she is ....
here's a bonus SoD




The world was in black and white
but we were in screaming colour ....

what a killer line ....

I (heart) TS

6 degrees of captivation ......

Having been beguiled by Ane Brun, I then watched this YouTube of her ....



and was just captivated ..... Ane ... Ane .... I love you Ane .....

But it then got me thinking about other captivating performances ....

What about Perla .....


Perla .... Perla ..... I love you ......

Although you have no idea what she is singing about [I do now.... as I looked it up some time ago and this Mexican song has quite a story to tell ] but regardless .... you cannot take your eyes off her [well I couldn't] ......

Then of course there is the queen of captivation .....


I mean dancing on the back of a moving truck... what were you thinking Bjork .....

I suppose dancing around the Empire State building is a bit less bonkers



But Karen O dances with vigour and captivates all the way round ..... 
just so damned smiley ......

Then Camille captivated me on Mars .....




What a fab way to end a song .... how can you not be captivated by that ......

And then last but not least .... I tripped up on this one and thought wow .......



In fact so wow was I captivated by Alice Phoebe Lou.....

 I am going to see her live at Oslo on Thursday night ....

and here is another wonderful bonus track of hers .......



A song that not so much captivates .......

but tip toes across your soul ......

6 clicks of separation .......

If I recall it all started with Kevin Bacon .... starting first as 6 degrees of Bacon ... but then people realised it works in all forms ......

A few years back I discovered I was just 6 degrees of separation with [from] Karen Blixen .... hard to believe I know .... but truely true ....

Then I realised, it works with music .... the first click starts with the TV remote, then you hear a song playing as a sound track to a scene in a TV program, so you click Shazam on your phone, then you click You Tube ...... and before you know it .... within the 6 clicks of separation you are at ....

6 clicks of Ane Brun ....

The original of this first track was of course the wonderful Nick Cage ... 
but what a sublime version here ....












And how about a bed bouncer to finish on ....
 do you remember ?




beguiling ......

Click Click .......

If just looking at a Ferrari 246 Dino is enough to .....


.... melt your retina's .....


Then just listening to this song is more than capable of
melting your brain ......


[usual rules apply.... Sennheiser ie8 inserted in tabs 
and volume set to full throtttle]

Let's finish ......



....with one last SoD ....
there can be no other choice 
but the genius that is Paul Buchanan ...

When your eyes meet mine, I lose simple skills ......

....... like putting my underpants on the right way round,
as I funked up for work this morning ......

I'd forgotten what a great album this is .... 
until my morning commute ....



a perfect Tuesday tune ...

Simple things please .... simple minds ....

My cycling challenge last year was to defeat Ditchling Beacon ..... this year it is the Dunwich Dynamo .... a 120 cycle ride through the night from east London to the disappearing hamlet of Dunwich on the Suffolk coast ....

Feel a splashing round your ankles and you know that in your stupor you've ridden too far ....

So this year I have been training hard .....

Earlier this year my older sister who at 55 years old is a novice cyclist, commenced her training for the London to Paris bike ride, and realising how long you have to sit in the saddle to cover long distances, asked me .... what do you think about when riding ? ...... in a heart beat the answer was easy ..... not falling off I truthfully declared ......

But as I pass through Suffolk village to Suffolk village building up the training miles my eye is often caught by a sign by the road .....

First I saw this one ........  and my immediate thought ....

If it really is an Elvis tribute then it must surely be an all you can eat buffet ......


As for this one ..... what a truely wonderful name .... 



....... if I was a woman and having issues with my lady garden then for sure....... if I was going to visit a osteopath, without doubt it would be Ned Wombwell..... who wouldn't want a well womb .....

Riding towards Lavenham, out the corner of my eye I saw a road sign .... weak bridge ... it declared .......


As I pedaled along .... I wondered ..... when they say weak bridge .... does that mean if I went up to it and went ........ Boo ! ...... would it suddenly start crying .....

And finally I have often wondered what a pillory post looks like .......

now I know .....

Interestingly one thing I have never seen on my bike rides
is a sweaty woman in a arran knit jumper 
could the Dunwich Dynamo be a first  ?
