    I did this one many many moons ago. But it's fun to do again.

    Got a far quieter and more sedate one coming at some point too.

    My first contribution this week is a song I wrote back in 1984. It deals with graffiti... and starts with the first example we know of: the hand that appears and writes on Belshazzar's wall.

    So although it hasn't got "hand" in the title. It has got a hand in the first line... and graffiti wouldn't exist without hands

    It features a Bass Ukulele and a 12 String Electric Guitar....

    I am writing an original for this week too, I'll try and get that up later.

    Once again may I take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to Season 406 - which I must judge this week!

    Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy:

    I'm not sure I've ever heard you being "quiet" and "sedate", Ryan ... this should be interesting!

    I remembered the phrase "Hand in hand we stand..." but couldn't place it. After a bit of research I found that it was the Olympic theme song from Seoul 1988, "Hand in Hand" by Giorgio Moroder and Tom Whitlock. Back then, breaking down the walls and having a fair competition seemed to be within reach.

    Et "Bonjour, Tout le Monde!" Apparently, France is on strike today over proposed pension reforms. This will not affect me, as I am NOT on strike ... so please keep the songs coming in. Very many thanks to Lynda for her very mystic original and to Brian for his "presidential" contribution. The Playlist is up to date. Why has no one brought me a "hand" joke? I might be forced to inflict another one on you.

    Here is my second contribution. An original about a broken relationship, written especially for this week...

    If I manage to finish it (it's progressing slowly) I hope I'll have yet another original for later in the week.

    Well... I started quiet and sedate.

    This is a Powderfinfer song that used to be a staple of mine back when I played guitar. Nice to give it a run out on the uke for once.
