    Good Morning (well, it IS here!), Seasonistas, and thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. The Playlist is up to date and I am hoping that our Internet service will be behaving itself sufficiently that I am able to actually LISTEN to your entries today. I forgot to mention that drag is optional this week, but if anyone feels an irresistible urge to dress up like the Queen (Joko?) or Prince Phillip, then please go for it. A special "thank you" to Lynda for bringing a song from my home county ... although I thought for one weird and deeply disturbing moment that she was recycling my school song, of which I can, thankfully, only remember the first verse. It went like this ...

    "Down where the Sussex Sea floats by caressingly,
    Warmed by the benediction of the sun,
    Hope fires our hearts and wills
    And our lithe bodies fills
    With vigour, as we leap and dance and run."

    We Brits are, undoubtedly, ODD!!!

    Those of you who remember W.W.2 might recall this patriotic song made famous by Dame Vera Lynn

    My gosh, Caz, you've been busy ... thank you! This one goes back a lot further than Lily Allen or even The Clash (but not so far as "Greensleeves".) It comes from 1937, originating from the show "Me and My Girl" from which it was adapted into a dance which swept the country. The instructions are from Arthur Murray. (The only Creative Commons video I could find was a rather lack-lustre version which looks as though it's being performed at a school prom ... but you can get the general idea.)

    And hello again from deepest France, where it is a very grey morning. Thank you, Alan for finding a "honey" song and John for abandoning the culinary delights of South East Asia to bring us a great Pogues cover. The Playlist is up to date. Please keep the songs coming!
