    Well done mate, the minuscule amount of gas that fracking produces does not warrant the injecting of toxic chemicals being pumped beneath our feet !!
    You would think these 'fracking Idiots' would learn by now by the amount of destruction caused to the planet above ground with similar bright Ideas!!

    It seems everyone's trying to play the ukulele like someone else............the only real way is your own way.

    I've never heard of Billie Marten before this season, but this song of her Bird is excellent, and my take on it, is below:

    As I said in the video...can't believe I even tried this, so apologies to one of my heroes.
    In High School, I was not smart enough to understand Husker Du, so I opted for the more raucous street punk that was pretty straight-forward. In College, I felt like Sugar had probably recorded the perfect pop song...it wasn't really until thirties that I really "got" what Bob Mould was all about, and then I saw him live. Even if loud guitar rock is not your thing, do your self the favor. The mans leaves a part of himself on the stage every time he plays, and it is really beautiful to watch. I honestly I have never seen anything like it, and likely never will again.
    In any event- I Don't Know You Anymore, Cloverdaled all up, by Bob Mould.

    I couldn't let a "Bob" season go by without a song by one of the greatest songwriters ever: Bob McDill. Recorded by Crystal Gayle. I used ChordPulse again because I really wanted to keep that descending bass line. Also some melodica and vocal overdubs.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    i LOVE this song, and thought i'd bring the kirsty maccoll version too, which is the same song, but from the girl's perspective, billy wrote two extra verses for kirsty for this

    I wanted to jump in on Sunday so bad, but I've been fighting a nasty cold. My lungs/throat still can't handle playing harmonica, but I came up with three shorter Dylan songs for this week.
