On the Full Service Bohemian-al calender, February 14 (aka Valentine's Day) is the first day of Spring. And the first day of Spring, means, among other things, ELO, History's GREATEST rock band, bar none.
I actually kind of like Trenton. It has good thrift stores, and I was once a member of Trenton's (professional!) Magnet Theatre Company. Which didn't last very long, because Trenton is not known for anything other than being the capital of New Jersey. I don't even think Harrisburg, which is usually Number 1 in the lists of culture-free state capitals, has less going on than Trenton.
There's some wonderful housing stock there, and if they could just get it gentrified or more jobs or whatever, it would be a nice place to live. I think.
I'm so sorry that the Tuesday Song of the Week was not posted on Tuesday. I've been insanely busy. Anyway, here it is:
"Mercy Mercy Mercy" - The Buckinghams
Last week the hubs and I went to a jazz piano concert featuring the guy the hubs takes piano lessons from. The teacher, Mark Brown. played this song, which actually began life as a 100% instrumental. (You can tell, because 'Mercy Mercy Mercy' is not in the lyric.)
This is more correctly 'the Tuesday Piece of Music of the Week.' From From Russia with Love...
YouTube calls this '007 Takes The Lektor'
I saw the movie for the first time only in the last few years, but I've known this piece of music, like, forever. It used to be the theme for Eyewitness News (one of the three local news shows in the City of Bothersome Love.)
