    Heres one I planned to do last week but illness and socialising laid me low.

    It's from the Netfkix series The Witcher, released earlier this month, so counts as a year ending in 9. It's presented in the show as a bard writing a song as he plays it recounting the tale of when he first met the titular Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter. Wont give anything else away other than it's a very catchy song and has turned into what could be the final meme of the 2010s.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    "I can't rock around the tree unless you rock around with me"

    I missed a few seasons at the end of 2019. My wife collapsed at the end of September and ended up in hospital for a few days. Her recovery has been quite slow but she's much better now.

    This would have fitted Season 405 as it was one of the songs played in the Lipstick on your Collar TV series. I didn't actually watch any of those series though they got good reviews. Anyway, something from Hank Williams. The BBC has been showing a series on Country Music and Hank Williams featured in one of the early episodes. The director is well known but his name has slipped my mind just now. (One of the frustrations of getting old, memory lapses)

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    I might have tried this tune on my hot-mess of a Season 393. I am not the most organized person, but that week was a challenge for me: I was surprised to get a new part-time job that week and the season started spinning a bit out of my control. I was very pleased that Brother John brought this tune to the table that week. Thanks to everyone who posted songs that week and every week of 2019. Happy New Year to you all.

    Hello, Rick! I think I intended to do this one for my British season, but it would have fitted equally well with Joko's gender-bending season, as it was originally performed by a male impersonator, i.e. a woman dressed up as a man. (There were several woman in British music hall who specialised in these roles ... did they ever occur in the U.S.?)



    A very Happy New Year to you all! (And a very Happy Birthday to Lynda ... although I am confused now as to whether it is today or was yesterday.)
