Season 581 - It's... Frisco, it is... Albion

Hi's one about The Land of a Thousand Lakes....that would be Finland. Caution may contain references to two forum members!
Yes I was never any good at the rowing business... but I had to do it to get to my fish trap🤭😁😂
I can vouch that every word in John's song is true. Thousands of lakes means lots of rowing 🛶
Hello Seasonistas!

It's your host again here. It's Thursday evening in the Land of a Thousand Lakes and we have now 31 songs on the playlist. It's been a pleasure to listen to them all. Thank you for your creative, fun and/or thought-provoking videos!
Thanks for hosting YIle, here's a rare Hawaiian cover from me. Sorry for the verbal miscue, I referred to it as Season 580. I've recently began to build up my Hawaiian song set as i'm regularly being asked to accompany a couple of groups of Hula dancers. Island here refers to the Big Island of Hawaii. Cheers, kev

thank you for hosting, Ylle.
Those beanies are fantastic. I can imagine folks wearing them resembling walking lampposts with the informal place names on their heads. How brilliant.
Whoever came up with them is a genius who loves people.

here is a song I made sounded horrible but it worked for me. It made me laugh.
I was feeling really depressed for a while and actually stopped having my showers. To not have daily showers in hot and humid Singapore is kinda serious....

I am not making fun of anyone suffering from depression. I can imagine how hard it is.
For me the motivation to shower came when I bought a soap I really liked- a sandalwood soap.
the scent comforted me and I felt better after a shower. it felt as if I had washed off some of my negativity or lows.
that Dirt Of know those cobwebs that gather around you like dark clouds?
(of course I had to wash myself on the days I had to go to work. One can lapse into total neglect if we don't have to leave the flat or house. So it makes sense to try to "force' ourself to get out and meet may be difficult when we are feeling low, but I do think it helps.)

when feeling clean, I slept a little better. that helped too.
so, don't forget and underestimate the difference a small and simple action can help you feel better. Get up and have a shower!
Lyrics included in the YT video. :---)

(it would be awesome if someone can do this song in the shower. I tried to film myself today, but my bathroom has the wrong tiles. The reason I used that awful Waterman uke in this video was because I was practising for my shower version....)
Hi Joo! I hope you're feeling better and finding your way out of the dark clouds.

I'd love to hear your song, but it's showing as Private.
It's... a mondegreen 😎

While other countries, like Finland, boast many impressive lakes, Canada takes the cake for the country with the most lakes in the world. In fact, Canada contains more lakes than the rest of the world combined.
Canada was also the home of Ron Hynes, The Man Of A Thousand Songs.
Hi Ylle, thanks for hosting! I've been travelling this week, and I expect to be busy most of the weekend, so I only had a short time to put this together, but I wanted to post it since it's one of my favourites from this year's FAWM and the chorus starts with "It's" so I didn't want to miss the chance :). I may have been travelling, but I haven't been travelling as far as the Curiosity Rover on Mars, which as of today is 10 years and 244 days into its 2 year mission and probably wishes it could go home.

Fortunately, it had a baritone ukulele in its payload, and I managed to get hold of the song it wrote about its plight. So, here it is.

A bitt of Cole Porter: It's alright with me.
It's the wrong time and the wrong place
Though your face is charming, it's the wrong face
It's not her face, but such a charming face
That it's all right with me
It's the wrong song in the wrong style
Though your smile is lovely, it's the wrong smile
It's not her smile, but such a lovely smile
So it's all right with me
You can't know how happy I am that we've met
I'm strangely attracted to you
There's someone I'm trying so hard to forget
Don't you want to forget someone, too?
It's the wrong game with the wrong chips
Though your lips are tempting, they're the wrong lips
They're not her lips, but they're such tempting lips
That if some night you're free
Dear, it's all right
Yes, it's all right with me
My favourite song of mine with "It's" in the title (It's True) was already submitted to Season 322; so I had to write a new one. This one is a sideways look at the success of Barcelona as a Tourist, Conference and Cruise ship destination. It outlines the negative effects that success is having on the inner city and the people who live there. I am sure this could apply to many other cities which earn their cash from tourism, etc.

I hope you like:

My voice is not doing great due to allergies but I think this song should be here.

This is a song Sheryl Crow wrote for Stevie Nicks. When Crow later recorded it herself, Gwyneth Paltrow did the backup vocals.
