Coitus interruptus eller snarere: slet ingen coitus

6. april 2018
Riding along in my automobile
My baby beside me at the wheel
I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile
My curiosity runnin’ wild
Crusin’ and playin’ the radio
With no particular place to go
Riding along in my automobile
I was anxious to tell her the way I feel
So I told her softly and sincere
And she leaned and whispered in my ear
Cuddlin’ more and drivin’ slow
With no particular place to go
No particular place to go
So we parked way out on the Kokomo
The night was young and the moon was gold
So we both decided to take a stroll
Can you image the way I felt
I couldn’t unfasten her safety belt
Ridin’ along in my calaboose
Still trying to get her belt a-loose
All the way home I held a grudge
For the safety belt that wouldn’t budge
Crusin’ and playin’ the radio
With no particular place to go

1968: Melodi Grand Prix

6. april 2018

Ja, på denne dag i 1968 vandt spanske Massiel årets Melodi Grand Prix, der blev afholdt i Royal Albert Hall i London. Og nr. 2 blev værtslandets egen Cliff Richard med “Gratulations”. Ikke et af Richards kunstneriske højdepunkter, hvis du spørger mig, men den vandt i sidste ende, i den forstand, at den solgte langt mere end den lårkorte spanske piges vindersang.

Hvis du husker den spanske vindersang, så er det måske, fordi Gitte Hænning lavede en dansk udgave samme år.

Eels er tilbage

6. april 2018

Eels – bandet omkring E alias Marc Oliver Everett – er tilbage med albummet The Deconstruction. Og med følger videoen “Bone Dry”, der mest af alt ligner noget, instruktøren Tim Burton kunne være ophavsmand til.
