    Primary school courtship.
    Mary Sloane punches me in the stomach.
    Annie Murray hits me on the head with a cricket ball.
    Both of them were in love with me... or so I was told.

    How about a little courtship on the telephone?
    Not a modern day smartphone, but a 1900 vintage phone.
    Just call your chosen one and sing: Hello my Baby

The singing went down well and the uke playing was... ok. Well it was a first. Second time will be better and third time better again. Would never have done it without playing here first over the last few months. Cheers.
    Wow ... you're one brave man, Mads! Kudos!

    This one is coming in a bit late, but it was done on time. Logistics of across the pond collaboration and falling asleep early made us tardy in getting it up here. This is an original Griffin/Latham composition from lifetimes ago that I thought fit the theme so well. Jon brought the perfect energy to my basic parts and did a fantastic clip for it. Thanks for hosting Keith. There have been some great entries so far and i'm sure there are tons yet to come ~

    My latest song for this week is a combination of Tuesday and Today's theme, since it is about the horrors of adolescent courtship.

    If some fairy godmother offered me the chance to go back to being 15 or else continue on into my old age, I would have no hesitation in refusing the first option. Adolescence was a very unhappy time for me as I am sure it was for many of you.

    So, how about a little bit of Chuck Berry inspired "Rock 'n' Roll" ? (Backing by Band in a Box)

    Not sure where courtship ends and bare naked lust begins in this one, but not sure that anyone does really

    Courtship

    I’ve always loved this one - it encapsulates that feeling when you know the chemistry is working and you’re on the verge of something very special.

    This McCartney song captures the feeling of "love at first sight" infatuation.

    Lonely young Ralf wrote this one decades ago. And songwriting tip: If you can only come up with one verse, just steal lines from songs you like to "write" a couple more verses :P
