    Default Season 462 - Dare To Be Different - like Charley B

    Season 462 - Dare To Be Different - like Charley B

    So, I’m a bit boring. I’ve always been a bit boring. I follow the rules. I conform. I never had a detention at school. I’ve always had a sensible haircut, never had any piercings or tattoos and I’ve always worn sensible shoes. I’ve never had a parking fine or a speeding ticket. I’ve never taken an illegal substance. Dull, dull, dull! But... I sometimes just wish I could be a little more rebellious, step outside the box, swim against the tide of conformity.

    So this week is a celebration of those people who do just that - they dare to be different. There are a few such individuals on the Seasons, and none more so than Charley B. He wears a tin foil hat in all his videos. He has a life size dalek in his home. And in one of his videos he was wearing only a sock and a bow tie! He’s hugely entertaining and the Seasons is a richer place for his presence as well as his music.

    So, this is what I’d like from you all this week:

    1. Absolutely any song of your choice but it has to be performed in a tin foil hat like Charley’s (how to make a tin foil hat);
    or:
    2. A cover of any of the songs that Charley has performed - here’s a link to his YT channel: https://youtube.com/user/TheSeventhFirst
    or:
    3. A song about a rebel, or an eccentric, or somebody who has done something out of character, good or bad;
    or:
    4. A song by an artist who has dared to be different or broken the mould - eg Bowie, Boy George, even Elvis in his early career. Should be plenty to choose from in this category.
    or:
    5. For the songwriters, anything that fits the ‘Dare To Be Different’ idea - again songs about people acting in a rebellious way or out of character would be good examples, but there’s plenty of scope here too.

    It may be possible to find songs that fulfil several of these options at once, which will earn extra bonus points, especially if also performed in a tin foil hat!

    If you can, please write a sentence or two (or more) about why you’ve chosen or written the songs you bring - I love to know exactly what’s behind your choices.

    Usual rules apply - collaborations and multitracking are very welcome. The song limit is 2 each per day, but no limit at all on Christmas Day only - my gift to you all! As some of you will know, I’m not a big fan of the second Sunday but I’m happy to go with it this time as I’m not back to work until January 2nd so I’ll have plenty of time to judge the entries (yes there will be a prize - details to follow) and produce the wrap early in the week after finishing. So the Season will run from the start of Sunday 20th December to the end of Sunday 27th December (Hawaiian time).

    Above all - enjoy yourselves! :-)

    A fertile topic to be sure. My mind is already spinning with ideas. Thanks Del!

    Ooh, you've started early, Del! And I have had a parking fine AND a detention ... my guilty past has caught up with me! This is a great idea and, fortunately, I recently invested in a roll of heavy duty foil (just so long as there is enough left over for the turkey.) P.S. You are really BORING!!!

    I really am! In fact the list of my boring attributes could have gone on for longer, but I was boring myself with all the dullness!

    Del, I like boring❤️ As unromantic as it may sound, one of the top five reasons I married my husband was because he is and was punctual��

    after 2020, you must all realise that wearing a tinfoil hat is the only way forward ...

    Del I have always thought of you as the Eric Olthwaite of the forum. Our conversations on shovels, black puddings and rainfall are most enjoyable.

    Eric Olthwaite has been a lifelong role model for me, John - cannot tell you how flattered I am by this comment!

    For those who don’t know of Eric:
