A post in one of the threads there got me singing this, it seems the only solution for a lot of people sadly- the problem has become the solution.


All through' the day
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
All through' the night
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Now they're frightened of leaving it
Ev'ryone's weaving it,
Coming on strong all the time,
All through' the day I me mine.

I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine.

All I can hear
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Even those tears
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
No-one's frightened of playing it
Ev'ryone's saying it,
Flowing more freely than wine,
All through' the day I me mine.

I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine.

All I can hear
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Even those tears
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
No-one's frightened of playing it
Ev'ryone's saying it,
Flowing more freely than wine,
All through' your life I me mine.

Once upon a time, in students days, it was Sgt Peppers. It was the very first CD I bought, not even having a CD player at the time.. but the anticipation of hearing the layering and kaleidoscope of effects in digital clarity was something that appealed to my naive self.

I progressed from there to the White Album being the solid favourite.. for the sheer extent and range of styles.

When I caught myself on and got a vinyl player Rubber Soul moved into the number one spot.. probably because the production value of the vinyl seemed to beat all the other albums on vinyl. Rubber Soul also has what I consider their best song "In My Life" which has been my favourite forever and a day.

Now I have a playlist of my favourite songs on in the car. Tracks like Bulldog, Baby You're a Rich Man, Only a Northern Song and some of the lesser played out ones.

Of course, I get much more value these days from The Kinks... whose lyrics I find much more appealing. Their whimsy and nostalgia for a lost and dying England get me, which I fine strange given that I'm an Irish Republican.

The thread reminded me of that clip from Alan Partridge. Such a quotable show.

At one stage with the Stones, during the seventies, half the band were drug addicts with serious problems. Surprised they could walk to the recording studio never mind play anything decent.

that's true, you can pick through the albums and bring up some really good stuff. Village Green album long considered a classic has only grown on me slowly. Davies nose dived when he went into his rock opera/ concept albums period.. but songs like Geneieve , sitting in my hotel, holiday romance, living on a thin line stand up with the best of them. I do like School Boys in Disgrace album, cheesy lyrics.. but some rocking tracks too
