    wee ginga yin did bye bye blackbird
    notanotherlinda did paint it black
    erivel did black diamond
    mezcalero did keep on the sunny side

    This is "Little Black Bird" by EmiSunshine. She wrote it when she was 9 years old; she is 14 now, I think. She doesn't perform it the same as her original version anymore, she changed it. I changed it, too. If you've never heard of her, you might want to check her out. She likes to use a resonator uke.

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

    I loved the convolutions this week.Here's an original dedicated to our host-I amused myself doing this on a sunny Saturday Sydney morn. "John of the North and the Convolution Blues". In open D.

    John of the North was an honest man
    His heart was good and true
    But he suffered hard
    and he suffered deep
    from the convolution blues

    He connected the poems of Ancient Rome
    With the temperature that pastry bakes
    And he connected the lives of martyrs and saints
    With the sound a whirligig makes

    John’s mother said “Now Johnny
    You know I despair for you
    Whatever makes you want to wear
    A haiku for a shoe

    But John he connected footwear
    To Japanese regret
    A three lined shoe
    The colour of blue
    Was his only pet

    Connections
    Shallow and deep
    Connections
    The heart will beat

    John of the North was a music man
    His castle built of notes
    Beatles in the mortar
    Stones buried in the moat

    He once found an E minor seven
    On a farm in John O’Groats
    But it took til he hit Land’s End
    Where a G chord tailor lined his coat

    John of the North was an honest man
    His heart was good and true
    But he suffered hard
    and he suffered deep
    from the convolution blues

    Connections
    Shallow and deep
    Connections
    The heart will beat

    a line from the biffy clyro song "born on a horse" that ryan brought - "i've never had a lover who's my sister or my brother before" - immediately made me think of "we were falling in and out with lovers, looking out for others, our sisters and our brothers", a line from "chains of love" by erasure. even knowing from experience, how well nigh impossible erasure songs are to sing, i just had to give this a try anyway!

    Steve (YorkSteve) played "Blitzkrieg Bop" earlier this week.
    I don't need to tell any of you that Blitzkrieg was the military strategy used by Germany in WW2.
    In the movie Animal House we learned that it most definitely was not over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.
    Kevin Bacon was in Animal House.

    Wait... that's not right.

    Animal House was a (is THE?) movie about college.

    Ween never had much popular success in terms of the charts, but they were in heavy rotation on college radio stations.
    After trying to comprehend all of the red yarn going from pin to pin across this season I think I also need what the narrator of this song is requesting.



    This is from 1996's "12 Golden Country Greats", which came out the summer before I started college and got a gig as an overnight DJ at the campus radio station. I played this a lot, because from midnight to 4 am nobody cared what you put on, so one could play whatever one wanted.

    For people still looking for connections, Gene and Dean Ween are, of course, Ramones style stage names (another connection to Blitzkrieg Bop), they have recorded songs and made records covering nearly every genre under the sun, and they are from eastern Pennsylvania. And on this album, Elvis' former backing vocal quartet, the Jordanaires, performed on a couple of tracks.

    Our host took us all over the place, including a record made in 1964 by the Shirelles that Soft Cells version of Tainted Love morphs into...
    So I was asking myself what else was made in 1964?
    Amy Ray was, and she is playing here tomorrow. I will be out of town and once again will miss them. Never seen her live, LOVE this song.

    This will probably be my last for this season. Fairly straightforward connection this time (boo! hiss! I hear you cry). Birdseye did Chains of Love by Erasure.
    Erasure features Andy Bell and Vince Clarke.
    Vince Clarke was in Yazoo with Alison Moyet.
    Alison Moyet released this Heyman/Young song, initially a hit for Kitty Lester, but now a hit for Ms Moyet in 1987.


    Ps, I need to add, I must thank this lady, whose video of this song helped me work out the twiddly chord change half way through, though I did have to transpose it into a key I could sing. It’s a lovely version. I couldn’t have done it without Joyce
