My Musical Sunday Afternoon

I absolutely love The Alan Parson Project song Eye in the Sky. It was really popular when I had lived in America, so I had naturally assumed it was an American band. As it turned out I was wrong. They are a UK band.

Best comment on the video,

“They look like a couple of engineers,”

Having spent most of my life around engineers, I find that pretty accurate.

Just listening to it and up popped up Gerry Rafferty Get it Right Next Time. I think I loved just about everything Gerry Rafferty ever did. I was sad to learn that he had died, even though he had straightened his life out. He was , I understand unfortunately, still suffering the ill effects of his past excesses.

We had some traditions in my family of origin. My father tended to go into impromptu renditions of Nelly Dean on a Sunday mornings.

I recall him yellingus of a guy who had cabbage water everywhere caked Joey New whose place stunk of cabbage water, His name was Joey knew. In old Joey New’s Back Garden,

On and off he liked to play Bach’s Toccata & Fugue. I generally do not like the organ but Dad was a Choirboy. I love the tale of him pumping the organ like fury and then running away.

I like to play Easy by The Commodores.

My guilty pleasure is My Sweet Lord by George Harrison. I know it isn’t exactly Christian but it definitely should be. When I sing along, I sing it to Jesus.

With thanks to Nowhereman 113 for giving me a great musical afternoon and all the other channels whose channels have filled me with nostalgia. Source:
