theDuke | 5605 comments Forthcoming Themes:

Theme 272 - Old King Cole - songs written by Cole Porter, performed by anyone you like (there are hundreds of them: incomplete list on Wikipedia, examples at Red Hot + Blue) - Gordon
Theme 273 - Get laid - song titles with any form of floor covering eg carpet, tiles, rug, mats, laminate (should be loads of songs about the latter), etc - Brass Neck
Theme 274 - My heroes have always been cowboys, And they still are, it seems... (take it away Willie) - give us a cowboy song you like, bring out your Roys, your Texs and your Genes, your Frankies and Martys, the Saturday-morning serials, or maybe a film or TV theme or soundtrack, any song that has you tilting your hat back and winding up your lasso - Val
Theme 275 - Give me the time of day: Any song title which includes any of the following: morning, midday/noon, afternoon, evening, midnight or any specific clock time - Fishy Jim
Theme 276 - Wildcard Round 11
Theme 277 - This Is Us - any artist/band name or song title containing any of the following words/names: Tech, Craig, Duke, Duncan, Foe, Nick, Tim, Timothy, Jemma, Val, Valerie, Derek, Collette, Lez, Les, Lesley, Brass, Neck, Sussex, Welsh, Mark, Gordon, Fishy, Jim, James, Steve, Helen, Melon, Sera, 69, Kevin - Helen
Theme 278 - More Tea, Vicar? - any song title with one of the requirements for a cup of Rosie Lee (cup, tea, leaf, bag, saucer, mug, milk, sugar, etc) - Brass Neck

Theme 280 - *Conditional - on folks finding enough suitable noms. Nominators may need to provide links for the whole concert with the time stamps for the nominated song*
"We're playing...where?!" Live performances in unusual venues/places. Some bands have performed at some odd places over the eons. So, pick a song (and YT vid link, if available), performed at strange places. It could be out at sea, on an active volcano, in the middle of a jungle or in a desert, in a war torn country, at an ancient site, like an Inca/Aztec city, an isolated monastery on top of mountain...and so on...you get the drift. The odder the better - theDuke
Theme 281 - "Boom Bang-a-Bang" - Onomatopoeias in song titles. - KJS

Good evening.

Like last week, I'm setting up the new round up early, for those who'd like to get a nom in straightaway. Plus i've got an early morning start, so taking in a early night! :)

This week, it's a canine versus feline meow and bark off, or both, as nominated by Helen:

"It's Raining Cats & Dogs" - song titles containing the word(s) cat(s) or dog(s) (or both): state your allegiance if you wish ;-)

Noms and links as you like, please, thank you.

And as ever i'll be back on Wednesday to kick off the voting phase.

Til then, see ya! :)

Brass Neck | 3617 comments Yes he's a unacceptably far-right, sexist nutjob gobshite but I was only a lad of 17 when I saw him on this tour and his very over-the-top motor-mouthin' and rock god shape-throwin' was just mind-blowin' - I never saw him again but I have strong memories of the gig and still think of his first 4 solo albums as a (not very) guilty pleasure. The stage lighting was not optimised for good video back in the day. It was a toss-up between this and Dog Eat Dog so I went for the one with the subtlest lyrics ...... not!

theDuke | 5605 comments Changing me nom.....i've decided i'm closet cat person. No idea who this band is, but they're from Liverpool & appear to sing their songs in Bulgarian. Band's name comes from the Roxy Music song of the same name & Briian Eno is fan apparently. Anyhoo..found this.....i kinda like it.....

My bestiality is strong - I love 'em both. Had cats (oo-er) for most of my working life as there's no guilt leaving them home all day - they just sleep, 2 singletons and now a positive pussy posse of 3, but I'm desperate to do some dogging to add to the menage(rie). Wish you'd never asked?

Why do cats live up to 50% longer than dogs on average?


message 24: by TheFoe (new)

TheFoe | 1949 comments I give up! :-)


message 25: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6383 comments because dogs only get 4 1/2 lives?

i'm 70% dog, 20% cat, and you don't want to know what the other 10% is!


message 26: by Derek (new)

Derek W | 1207 comments Small dogs generally live longer than large dogs. Since the majority of cats would most likely fall into the small/medium dog size the fact that they live up to 50% longer sort of makes sense.

Personally, I wouldn't want to live with a domestic cat the size of a bull mastiff.

I didn't think I'd need to make my preference known:-)

Cats are boring, and in any case Su's allergic to some cats. Cats do seem to like me though.

I'm cold & heartless and do not find puppies or dogs (or babies for that matter, urgh) in any way "cute". Norbert does nothing for me. :-(


message 31: by Val (new)

Val H. | 13630 comments Me neither. Not a fan of small dogs apart from Jack Russells (we had two and I also used to mind two when the owners were away). I do like cats and have had five in my lifetime, but they tend to take more than they give. Plus they're often deadly to bird life. So give me a proper dog - medium size, short hair and plenty of personality.

Me neither. The word 'cute' puts me off for a start. As for babies - yuk!


message 34: by SussexWelsh (last edited Sep 08, 2020 08:00AM) (new)

Some cats are OK.
