Don't talk rubbish. The nuns, just like you, lived in the past. I don't.

You would just love to dominate this site with your sad ramblings, so no I won't you pompous git.

Tis a pity that you can't put anything on here of interest.

So I suppose ruining others input may seem clever.

It isn't, you sad old woman.

The first LP I ever bought was “A Bobby Vee Recording Session” it had the following tracks, What's Your Name, My Golden Chance, You Better Move On, Please Don't Ask About Barbara, Forget Me Not, Sharing You, In My Baby's Eyes, Tenderly Yours, I Can't Say Goodbye, Teardrops Fall Like Rain, Guess Who, A Forever Kind Of Love.
I was 15 and played it on my record player, by today’s standards a crude device, but to me fantastic.
My first foray into love songs.

The first song I really got into was “Emile Ford: What You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For”, we saw him live in Blackpool on our Summer holidays.

For my departing I would choose Alan Stivell “Pop Plinn”.
He is not well known in this country, but I saw him as the support act to Steeleye Span in Winter 1972 and he blew my socks off.
He plays the Breton Harp and also the Bombarde, a reed instrument widely used to play traditional Breton music.
Give it a listen to on youtube.

Alan Stivell

I've changed my mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My "departure" song has to be "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" by the fabulous Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention.
Absolutely sublime.

Who Knows Whwere the Time Goes
