Talking of spreading the love…

I’ve been tagged by my lovely friend Andie on her Little Bits of Waffle blog. I’ve never been tagged before so I might not be doing it right, but here goes.

It’s Mammy Woo’s Music Therapy meme. All I have to do is pick 3 pieces of music that move me…

Number one is easy… always at the top of my list. I melt every time as soon as I hear the guitar chords at the beginning. I couldn’t find a decent video of the song with good sound quality so this one will have to do. At least the music is right. It’s Alison by Elvis Costello:

Number 2 has a similar effect Witchita Lineman by Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb. Again I’ve had to go for the non video video because I’m a purist, I love this so much and all of the live versions on YouTube hit a bum note with me. Not Glenn Campbells fault it’s just that I know this version so well that every difference grates on me.

Bonkers, camp and slightly ridiculous I know but this gives me goosepimples every time and as a child used to really fire my imagination it’s Keith West’s Excerpt from a Teenage Opera:

Now I think I am supposed to tag other people… I had better ask them if it’s OK first… I’ll get back to you.

We’re in France. Our lovely friends Harry & Kate are letting us use their house in Pons for 2 weeks. We’ve brought my parents with us. Today is their 50th wedding anniversary. 50 years! That’s really something isn’t it? Meanwhile the Amsterdam girls are living in our house, looking after (spoiling) Trudi and the hens. Al’s been blogging about our trip here.
