____________________________________________________
Good evening folks.

What gorgeous weather we're having currently! 'twas 22C degrees today, that the little tube of mercury was telling me, for my little part of sunny Wales. Me sister and bf, who'd been staying with us for the last couple of weeks, have now gone back home, so status quo has once again been resumed...hoorah! I love my sister, but visiting relatives, can stick around for too long sometimes! lol!

Got me pre op assessment date, for the 16th June, for my other eye....looks (pardon the pun!) like, I might get the second op booked before the summer break...so fingers crossed for that....as i'm useless atm. So bored of sitting around waiting for things to happen, especially with the fine weather we're getting atm. Hey ho..nothing for it, but to wait patiently.

Right...enuff waffling, it's Brass Neck turn, with his theme: -

'Toys, general or specified, in the title or artist's name'.

Nominations in by the usual time, Wednesday 10pm, thank you.

And...er...at the risk of sounding like a stuck record, cos I keep saying this....... have a wonderful, lovely, joyful, week! Summer is nearly here..woohoo! :)

Brass Neck | 3891 comments Helpful links;

https://www.theguardian.com/music/201...
http://www.songfacts.com/category-son... (although how Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a toy escapes me).

There are oodles of songs about merry go rounds or balloons which would be OK in my book and if you're really, really, really stuck there's always Barbie Girl.

Brass Neck | 3891 comments The lyrics are about a train wagon? I'd call the thing in the image a trolley maybe?


message 9: by Val (new)

Val H. | 15752 comments More evidence. The chorus is:

The life is the red wagon rolling along
The life is the red wagon simple and strong
The life is the red, is the red, oh, it's no big deal
But when the feet are dragging you pull for me
And I pull for you, you pull for me and I pull for you

message 11: by Val (new)

Val H. | 15752 comments Happy to change BN but if Red Lorry Yellow Lorry is in then I think "red wagon" deserves a guernsey. I think these wagons are more of an American icon. I give you Willie Nelson's song:

Won't you ride in my little red wagon
I'd love to pull you down the street
And I know all the kids will be jealous
When they see my playmate so sweet

Hold tight till we come to the hilltop
Going to coast down the hill, you and me
Won't you ride in my little red wagon
For you are my sweetheart to be

I read Jane Siberry's lyrics as being about taking turns, first I pull you then you pull me. I can't see "when the feet are dragging" being about a train wagon.

theDuke | 5784 comments The term Toy could open up a whole can of the wriggly ones, cos..what about 'boy's toys', or ..dare I say it..sex toys! Okay..neither would be the kind of play things a wee kiddie ought be mucking around with...but as DIYer...I see toys in a completely different light...love using my power drivers & chop saws, and whilst many may consider them as tools..for me, I get a lot pleasure playing with them!!!!!! Even a ride on mower could be considered as a 'boy's toy' not that i'm discrediting women, cos I know one neighbour who's got one, and takes every opportunity to get it of her shed, and go for spin on it!!! :)

Brass Neck | 3891 comments Bugger it, (almost) anything goes, it is about the music after all. Just awaiting 'adult' toys.


message 14: by Val (new)

Val H. | 15752 comments Watch out for other tricky ones - bikes? guns? bows and arrows? snakes and ladders? When is it a toy?

Don't you just love it when you put forward a theme that is quite clear in your head only to find other posters read all sorts of different things into it?

Dunno how many of you have had a look on this week's FA round, but things have reached a bit of a crisis point with the thread, due to lack of support it's getting currently....& I'm afraid I went off on one in there as well, as I think something needs to be done to keep it going. FA is a marvellous thread, so it would be a shame to see it go. So, after the Coltrane voting has played out...anybody that would like to put their views across or suggestions as to how it can be improved, would be most welcomed to do so.

Right onwards with this thread...voting closes on Sunday 27th 10pm...and may this glorious sunshine we're getting (well..i am here anyway) continue! TTFN

theDuke | 5784 comments Lots to like on this playlist & thus I found it very hard to pick my top 5. 10 songs merited points, and the remaining still listenable. So...in keeping with the current voting system rules, I've decided from now on, I'm going to list all the songs I like (my nom obviously not included - which I can't believe is as old as I am!), but just putting points to the top 5....so here's mine..

After Lez:

Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats - 5 (Easily wins hands down)
Tindersticks - 4 (Not heard of this band before)
Red Lorry Yellow Lorry - 3 (deserves more though, but I like the top two more)
Small Faces - 2 (Evergreen classic)
Admiral Fallow - 1 (Not normally given to folk music, but this is hard to not like)

And in no particular order:

Incredible String Band
James & Bobby Purify
Bentley Rhythm Ace
The Abyssinians
Jack Savoretti
Meat Puppets
Jane Siberry
Andy Capp
Narareth

The only two I wasn't taken by was SFAs (okay but not one of their better tracks) & Springsteen, which I don't like, as nearly all of his stuff has been a bit meh to me & ego driven! Born In The USA? Ach.... purlease! :-)
