True Love & Happiness in the Present Day

Post by Ian9331 »

How long can it last ?

Just One Day ?

I've just had a most amazingly Good day so far. Not many of them I tell you.

And I've been working.

I'm in a very positive mood right now, so i'll pour my first glass of wine!

It's not 'What goes up must come down'..... to me it's 'What goes down must come up'.

Just had to share my fortunate good day.

Thanks for reading.
Maybe I'll find love when there's nothing to do........

Magnificent song
'Peaches - A Chronicle of The Stranglers from 1974 to 1990', out 2014 on Soundcheck Books.

Think I'll go for a stroll in the trees.

Ian - first time we met was at the MiB gig in Nice. 2006/2007.

Have I got that right ?

Surely their best album? Think about it. So understated and the band playing to their strengths without being OTT - very mature

Worst track on the album IMHO.

However, I agree ...up there with the best as an album.

I've always loved La Folie'....

After The Gospel it was IMHO a refreshing return to form.
