Ah ha!

Lisa has already mentioned the latest Guardian lists. This week they are telling us all about the 1,000 songs we must hear.

Today's edition looks at protest songs and U2 get a mention for ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’. Thank you Guardian for the reminder of what Alan Partridge had to say about that track.

"It really encapsulates the frustration of a Sunday, doesn’t it?”.

I love this man.

That's just fantastic - and typical of Mr Partridge/Coogan.

I'm grinning like an idiot here.

Sundays always bring about a touch of ennui in my household. Even the cat spends most of the day asleep in his basket. Yes I know he's a cat and that's what cats do, but he is certainly more lazy on a Sunday.

Word ver is gunnailg which is a great word but my brain isn't working too well today so can't think of a meaning.

I'm always a little puzzled by these lists. I think they're basically just self-indulgent journalism. ;)

Sunday song? It has to be The Monkees 'Pleasant Valley Sunday' for me, probably because I first heard it when I was quite young and impressionable.

Pleasant alley Sunday is a great song (I'm rather fond of the Monkees anyway) - glad you brouht outthe Alan Partridge quote -- I wondered if you might!

JJ, do you get the feeling that, sometimes, some people miss the point?

J.J said...

Trousers - glad you liked it as much as I do.

Karen - Sunday for me revolves around housework - I would far rather it revolved around staying in bed all day.

Jay - agree about the list thing - I bet the journalists love putting them together - and they get paid for it - lucky sods!

Lisa - I am never able to resist an Alan Partridge moment.

Reidski - you know the way my mind works. I fear I may leave many other people vaguely confused.
