    I’m feeling either very brave or very foolish tonight - not sure which yet, but only TIME will tell! Not only is this fabulous song one of my favourites by Yazoo, and originally sung by the supremely talented Alison Moyet, but it was also covered fabulously well by Lynda earlier in the season. I think we can guess where this is heading, but I’m posting it anyway. The verdict of the jury: foolish!

    For Season of the Ukulele 355, "A Dance to the Music of Time", we're playing songs about the time of the day. This is "Blue, Red, and Gray" by the Who, played on tenor ukulele with whistling and singing, with overdubs of digital accordion, and a secondary vocal.

    Not a single moment of the day (the song mentions many different times of day), but I'm sure this one Thorntons its way in.

    No secret I have a Paul Heaton thing- could not resist doing this one after Melissa suggested it.

    And, good morning from deepest France, where it is still too dark to see what the weather is doing. Therefore, I bring you "culture"! The title of this week's Season comes from the 12-volume cycle of novels by Anthony Powell, chronicling mid-Twentieth Century life in England, as seen through the eyes of the narrator, Nick Jenkins. And Powell, in turn, found inspiration for the title from a 17th Century painting by Nicolas Poussin.

    Thank you, Ryan! Actually, I wasn't saving this one .... I have come to the conclusion that most jokes about time/clocks are just AWFUL, and impossibly corny. (This is, of course, the exception!)

    firework-display-transparent-background.jpgAND STOP PRESS!!!!

    Lynda has just, not so subtly, reminded me that it is Wednesday, so I have Internet!!!!! Therefore, as promised, I herewith lift the three-song limit for the rest of the week. (Also, should anyone be inspired by that Poussin painting to write a song about four slightly unrobed ladies dancing round to the music of Time - playing his lyre - then that would be most welcome!)
