Tell Me On A Sunday

Certain albums form the backbone of my childhood: Tubular Bells, Spirits Have Flown (Bee Gees), Grease, Saturday Night Fever, Chic and Tell Me On A Sunday.

It's a fabulous musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber about a young London girl living in Manhattan. Since it was written in the 70s, it's basically all about her disastrous love-life. It's a bit much to call it a musical which makes you think of a cast of hundreds and dancing. The whole thing is just her singing, no duets, no other people. It has some wonderful lyrics. If you've never heard it, I can recommend it. But you must listen to the whole thing from beginning to end so it all makes sense.

My favourite song is Capped Teeth and Caesar Salad. It's such a ridiculous name for a song. Our heroine goes to LA with her latest movie producer boyfriend and it's a song about the madness of la la land. Still very relevant now.

I have to share this one with you though. Take That Look Off Your Face; "lots of young guys wear corduroy pants."

Check out the boiler suit! I am going to have to listen to the whole album now.

  2. I've met a film producer, please don't laugh, his name is Sheldon

  3. I'd love to find a drink that hasn't got an ice cube in it and for an English sausage I swear I would gladly die
