All beer and no food makes something something...

My headsong is alternating between Take That's 'A Million Love Songs' and Phil Collins' 'Sussudio.'

I'm pleased with neither of these, knowing that I must have heard them drunk on a beery Bank Holiday Monday yet I'm not able to place the where.

They don't have music in Kehoes and, by the time Round Two came along in the Ferryman, the lights shone a little too brightly and I was just sitting there pretending not to be steamed.

I was. Muchly.

Gary Barlow and Buster have terrible things to answer for as I sit here at a remove of two days, at a capacity of little more 63%, silently willing the songs to stop their looping whirr.

Why didn't I eat? A bowl of Crunchy Nut Corn Flakes does not an iron constitution build and I spent Tuesday cursing the folly of ten beers and no sustenance.

"I'll be grand."

I wasn't grand. I won't make the mistake again.

J. Geils Band's "Centerfold": the ultimate palette cleanser.

As for how to get rid of that one, you're on your ownio.

That usually happens me when half asleep and early morning radio is sneaking into my head.

Food before beer is not queer.

Radge said...

Better, Therese, far better. It's put me on a Pogues search.

Holemaster - A maxim I'll eventually learn.

i fuckin hate that when i get a song stuck on a loop in my head. its usually a terrible form of aural chemo as well, some awful contemporary pop, and it won't even be the whole song, just the highly irritating chorus usually. what i find i have to do is visualise tearing the needle of the record as it spins...

For a head-song hangover removal you need to select something so mournful it drowns out the self-inflicted pain in your own head for a minute or two.

Mad World - Donnie Darko version or Lightning Crashes by Live?

Radge said...

Danny - I'll try anything in such circumstances.

Kath - I was looking up Live only a couple of days ago. Turns out the lead singer's a bit of a money grubbing bastard and the rest of them are taking him to court.

I've also been listening to a lot of Donnie Darko-inspired Tears For Fears of late.

My mistake was in thinking that at the time, JJ. Drink and good company pushes food down to a poor third place! It had been too long.

Also, and I hate to be a stickler, but if you could keep it to 'Radge' for blog purposes that'd be great.
