March 4th – Rolling Stones – “Ruby Tuesday”

In 1967, the#RollingStones went to No.1 with #RubyTuesday  #singing;#feelgood

Ruby Tuesday

She would never say where she came from
Yesterday don’t matter if it’s gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows
She comes and goes
Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…
Don’t question why she needs to be so free
She’ll tell you it’s the only way to be
She just can’t be chained
To a life where nothing’s gained
And nothing’s lost
At such a cost
Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…
There’s no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you will lose your mind.
Ain’t life unkind?
Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you… [x2

March 3rd – Phil Collins – “Sussudio”

In 1985, #PhilCollins third solo album, “No Jacket Required” started 5 weeks at No. 1.  Here is one of the great songs from that album #singing;#feelgood

Sussudio

There’s this girl that’s been on my mind
All the time, Sussudio oh oh
Now she don’t even know my name
But I think she likes me just the same
Sussudio oh oh

Oh if she called me I’d be there
I’d come running anywhere
She’s all I need, all my life
I feel so good if I just say the word
Sussudio, just say the word
Oh Sussudio

Now I know that I’m too young
My love has just begun
Sussudio oh oh
Ooh give me a chance, give me a sign
I’ll show her anytime
Sussudio oh oh

Ah, I’ve just got to have her, have her now
I’ve got to get closer but I don’t know how
She makes me nervous and makes me scared
But I feel so good if I just say the word
Sussudio just say the word
Oh Sussudio, oh

Ah, she’s all I need all of my life
I feel so good if I just say the word
Sussudio I just say the word
Oh Sussudio I just say the word
Oh Sussudio I’ll say the word
Sussudio oh oh oh
Just say the word

Top Cat!
The most effectual Top Cat!
Who’s intellectual close friends get to call him T.C.
Providing it’s with dignity.

The indisputable leader of the gang.
He’s the boss, he’s a pip, he’s the championship.
He’s the most tip top,

Yes he’s a chief, he’s a king,
But above everything,
He’s the most tip top,

March 1st – St David’s Day – “Its not unusual”

It is #StDavidsDay, especially in #Wales.  Here is one of their own – #TomJones, blasting out an old favourite! #singing;#feelgood

Its not unusual

1-3 St Davids Day

It’s not unusual to be loved by anyone
It’s not unusual to have fun with anyone
but when I see you hanging about with anyone
It’s not unusual to see me cry,
oh I wanna’ die
It’s not unusual to go out at any time
but when I see you out and about it’s such a crime
if you should ever want to be loved by anyone,
It’s not unusual it happens every day no matter what you say
you find it happens all the time
love will never do what you want it to
why can’t this crazy love be mine
It’s not unusual, to be mad with anyone
It’s not unusual, to be sad with anyone
but if I ever find that you’ve changed at anytime
it’s not unusual to find out that I’m in love with you
whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
1-3 Tom Jones Its not unusual

February 28th – Watson & Crick discover DNA – “Skinny Genes”

In 1953, the structure of #DNA was discovered by Watson and Crick. Here is a song by #ElizaDoolittle  #singing;#feelgood

Skinny Genes

28-2 DNA

I really don’t like your point of view
I know you’ll never change
Stinging me with your attitude
I’ve got the mind to walk awayI really don’t like your arrogance
Or your policies
You’re ninety-nine percent an embarrassment
Of just wrong qualities[Chorus:]
I don’t mind it when you [whistles]
Brings out the best in me when you [whistles]
Show your expertise
When the night always ends with a fight I’m excited
That you’ll wind up next to me
I like it when you [whistles]
Can I have some please of that [whistles]
Satisfy my needs
Sometimes I fake that I hate you and make up
So you wind up next to me

I really don’t like your skinny jeans
So take them off for me
Show me what you’ve got underneath
So we can do this properly

I really don’t like the way you smile
When you think you’re right
But I will forgive you, the yoke is in the middle
And we’re chewing through the wire

[Chorus]

I dreamt that you were on a train
you were leaving, you were leaving
It made me think of what I’d miss
Do you believe it, you believe it

I don’t mind it when you [whistles]
Brings out the best in me when you [whistles]
Show your expertise
When the night always ends with a fight I’m excited
That you’ll wind up next to me

I like it when you [whistles]
Can I have some please of that [whistles]
Take off your skinny jeans
Sometimes I fake that I hate you and make up
So you wind up next to me

I dreamed that you were on a train
And you were leaving, you were leaving
