When Adam Delved And Eve Span…

Thought it was about time I put up a music post. I think the theme should be obvious.

Certain shenanigans surrounding aircraft carriers, this week, put me in a nautical kind of mood. So I bunged a load of songs on that theme together in a video format and uploaded 'em onto YouTube. And here, Gentle Reader, is the result. Thirty-three songs of a nautical bent. About half of them are the rockabilly most long-time readers have probably learned to expect from me, but the other half… Well, there's the Spinners, the Toy Dolls, the Andrews Sisters and the Band Of Her Majesty's Royal Marines, to name but a few. It's a rather strange mix but rather fun, I think.

I ran across a mention, a couple of days ago, of the fact that it was Jane Birkin's birthday. You know, her that is famous (or infamous, depending on your point of view) for the 1969 UK number-one hit, Je T'aime … Moi Non Plus, along with her lover (and writer of the piece) Serge Gainsbourg. It's not a song I'm particularly fond of (not because of the risqué content; I just find it boring), but it did give me an idea for a post. Which I then failed to produce in a timely fashion. Ho-hum.

So here, is a post, two days too late for the event I wished to tie it to, about songs which have been banned by the BBC.

Genevieve & Other Harmonica Easy-Listening

Yes folks, it's another music post. Basically, I think I'm avoiding saying anything serious about the current mess because then I might have to actually admit it's not just a really bad dream. Ho-hum.
