    Sorry to be the bringer of doom and gloom, but it's my party and I'll do a Morrissey song if I want to.
    This one appealed to me when it first came out (over 30 years ago!!!), because the "seaside town that they forgot to bomb" sounded very much like the place where I went on holiday for too many years as a child - and where my parents had just retired to. Thirty years on, it is still much the same.

    Hello, Steve ... and thank you for a splendid theme this week! (What HAVE you unleashed with Lynda and Eurovision?) In my quest for the unexpected, I decided on this song from 1911. And, my apologies ... I didn't realise, until I started to sing, that I am losing my voice.

    This one's all about saying goodbye. Gordon Lightfoot.
    Images from my visit to Michigan in 2004, Railway museums at home and one from the North York Moors Railway. One of the pictures was from an open air museum with a restored 19th century town and a short stretch of steam railroad that we visited whose name & exact location I forget. Somewhere north of Flint iirc. There is (hopefully not was) at least one seasonista from Michigan who might remind me.

    Greetings,

    Well, this is something different for sure. The song is from the 60's I think called " Eve of Destruction" by Barry McGuire. There's a lot of words and it's not very melodic but somehow the message kind of sticks to ya.

    This is one of my favorite songs. I knew if I ever tried it, I would end up going kinda crazy with it, and that's what happened. The whole band came out for this one. This is also my first experiment with lip-syncing, so the music is not all going to line up perfectly with the video.

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