There's days when nothing rattles my ears nicely, it's all "meh... s'alright, but nowt special really". I poke listlessly around, trying this n that on for size, until something gives me an 'ooh!'. After that - everything sounds & feels a whole lot better anyway, so maybe I should make a mardy morning playlist, with which to jolt the glumness & overwhelminess away.

Anyhoo - here's what did it today, in glorious mono; great lyrics, some fine rhymes, and the 'ooh' does it for me every time, how apt.

Fire Brigade - The Move
Move (1968)

Cast your mind back ten years,to the girl who's next to me in school
If I put my hand upon her leg, she'd hit me with a rule
Though tomorrow won't be long. you're gonna have to play it cool
You'd be fascinated by her, she could set the place on fire

Run and get the fire brigade. Get the fire brigade
See the buildings start to really burn - Ooh!
Get the fire brigade, get the fire brigade
If you jump you've got to wait your turn--

Friends all seem to laugh, I fear I'm apt to make a compromise
Try to reassure myself, my head must need some exercise
Half past ten in the morning, she just took me by surprise
True she set the place on fire, you'd be fascinated by her


The lights across the street throw a rainbow in her hair
I'd love you all to meet her, I'll be there, I'll be there

Notice that my eyes have been a misty place since Saturday
Brings a feeling we might need the fire engines anyway
Though tomorrow won't be long, we're gonna have to play it cool
You'd get fascinated by her, she could set the place on fire


I do like bell sounds in pop music, whasaat Beatles one? - ah yes 'Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey', same year too
