Now I know regulars don’t like me messing with the flutter but too bad. There’s loads to cram in this week and it just won’t fit in the usual formula. So for one week only…
Try as I might, there’s just no escaping the Wedding. So here are a selection of choons, as chosen by Twitter pals, for your delectation, in celebration (!) of the happy union of Wills and Kate. Take your pick!
Billy Idol – White Wedding; Billy Bragg – Take Down the Union Jack; the Wedding Present – My Favourite Dress; the Sex Pistols – Anarchy in the UK; Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire (no I don’t get this one either but apparently it’s the bookies’ favourite???); The Smiths – the Queen is Dead; and against my better judgement, Roy Orbison – Penny Arcade (cos it was penned by Sammy King, see?)
The burdz choice? Blue as your Blood from the Walkmen
Now here is something worth celebrating – International Worker’s Day. I might be feeling a bit nonplussed at an enforced day off for Royalty but I am more than happy to down tools and celebrate the role of workers everywhere. And be mindful, in the current climate, of not only having a job, but a good one and one that I love. O wondrous proletariat, the burd salutes you.
Oh, and in case you’d forgotten, there’s the small matter of the Holyrood election to be voted for in less than a week.
For the Greens – something special from the Sunderbans, We Only Can Because We Care
Two more – one for politicians everywhere. Old Devils from the wonderful William Elliott Whitmore
Finally, one for us. No matter who you decide to vote for next Thursday, let’s vote!!!
Two last choons, apropos nothing you’d understand and a blogpost just wouldn’t be long enough to explain. Enjoy them anyway!
