    The other is I often make remarkably bad choices. This is the latter and likely a waste of your precious internet allotment (that still amazes me). This is a terrible song that I really don’t want to do...but I have my compulsions. One, no one else is going to touch this with a ten foot pole, and it mentions time of day twice.
    So, I will apologize for Mr. Snoop Dog for being a misogynistic pile of excrement, I will forever say this video is his fault because he wrote the damn thing and it just jumped in my head. Once it is there we have few options. Here it comes.
    So here we go. Terrible sentiment. Terrible language. I reckon I really did play the hell out of it, but that likely doesn’t matter. I promise I have a better song with Mel coming.

    As most of you may know by now, I love a good preamble - I’m far more likely to watch/listen to a vid if you can draw me in with a really enticing written introduction - and TCK is a master at this, as demonstrated beautifully here! Can’t say I disagree with his opinion of the song or the artist, but he still made me listen dammit!

    And good morning from deepest France, where I could be protesting about fuel prices and the rising cost of living (has anyone seen the footage of the "Gilets Jaunes" protesting in Paris on Saturday?), but am, in reality, sitting in the kitchen while it rains outside. Very many thanks to those who brought songs "overnight" ... I'll update the Playlist in a moment. Please keep them coming today!

    And P.S. I intend to organise a group viewing of "Midnight Cowboy" ... see CeeJay's post!

I think that the Playlist is up to date, but if anyone discovers that they are missing, please let me know a.s.a.p. I will leave you with tonight's "clock joke", from the great Mr. Tim Vine ...

    So, I went to buy a watch, and the man in the shop said, "Analogue?"

    I said, "No ... just a watch!"

    Ha ha! Will look forward to more watch humour from you Val as the week progresses

    Here's a Stonewall Jackson song from the early 60's. Always have loved this song, and always found it rather poignant and sad.

    Russian songwriting duo Rasputin and Philip the Ghost were two monks
    that lived in a monastery near Rostov on the Don. According to Plutarch,
    the Don River was also home to the legendary Amazons of Greek mythology.

    The beauty of the local women was of great renown and they were a severe
    temptation to the monks who were supposed to live a celibate life within the monastery.

    The Duo would always manage to escape the confines of the monastery
    most nights at 7 o'clock and could been seen in the market square
    drunkenly dancing to the strains of their most famous song about
    the Russian river Don, called Da Doo Don Don.

    Philip to escape the persecution of the orthodox church move to America
    and became a record producer and Westernised his famous song and
    garnered both fortune and fame by having a hit with the Crystals and Da Doo Ron Ron.

    The music Louis Armstrong gave to the world is one of humanity's greatest treasures. In the latter-half of his remarkable career, he chose this as his theme song.

    Chuck Berry wrote a lot of songs that involved clock-watching, but this is a number all about dancing and time. Performed using a tenor ukulele tuned to Bb, as all tenor ukuleles should ( ;-) ).
