    Default SOTU 397 "And Is There Honey Still For Tea?"

    Hello Seasonistas and welcome to Season 397, in which we are celebrating all things British!

    In 1912, Rupert Brooke, whilst living in Berlin and homesick for England, wrote a poem entitled "The Vicarage, Grantchester", extolling the virtues of the area surrounding this property (where he had often stayed) in Cambridgeshire. On a basic level, this poem was probably overly idealistic even for the halcyon days of the Edwardian era and in 2019 - when the United Kingdom is plunged into turmoil as never before at the prospect of Brexit -
    it seems even more so. The title of this week's Season is taken from the last (and most often quoted) line from that poem.

    Please watch the Intro. video for more details ... it's VERY short! All the usual rules apply and there is no song limit. There MAY be prizes.

    Meanwhile, do not miss the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to release your inner female/male side for Joko's splendid Season!



    I'll put up the Playlist when the entries start coming in ... and I can remember how to do it!

    AND HERE IS THE LINK TO THE PLAYLIST:

    I learned something about creating new playlists just today that I wish I'd known at beginning of the week. IN the link above, I explain "auto-add"...

    Thanks for that, Joko! (I always have to go back to square one to remind myself what I need to do when it comes to creating the Playlist ... I suppose because I only do it a couple of times a year.)

    you don't get any more English than tea, nanny baking fairy cakes, gardens, willow trees, hollyhocks and roses, croquet, and church bells chiming …. and 10/10 to Paul McCartney for writing a song with the words 'twee' and 'peradventure' in it ...

    I am currently suffering from buffering ... I had hoped that we would have our new (and improved!) Internet service by now, but it hasn't arrived yet. I'll add all new entries to the Playlist a.s.a.p., but it may be a while before I can listen to and comment on your contributions. Sorry!!!

    Hang on, I hear you say - didn't Woody Guthrie write this about 1940's America? Yes, he did, but then along came Billy Bragg with some new words.
