Is it Monday again already?! Racing through them now aren’t we!! And I love Mondays now because of Music Monday – a weekly tag hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek, and it’s a weekly chance to share some favourite tunes and videos!

I seem to have fallen down an Eighties movie rabbit hole recently, and that’s what I’m sharing again today! Pretty in Pink by Psychedelic Furs!! Turn it up!!!

Caroline laughs and it’s raining all day
She loves to be one of the girls
She lives in the place in the side of our lives
Where nothing is ever put straight
She turns her self round and she smiles and she says
“This is it that’s the end of the joke”
And loses herself in her dreaming and sleep
And her lovers walk through in their coaches

Pretty in pink, isn’t she?
Pretty in pink, isn’t she?

All of her lovers all talk of her notes
And the flowers that they never sent
And wasn’t she easy?
Isn’t she pretty in pink?
The one who insists he was first in the line
Is the last to remember her name
He’s walking around in this dress that she wore
She is gone but the joke’s the same

Pretty in pink, isn’t she?
Pretty in pink, isn’t she?

Caroline talks to you softly sometimes
She says, “I love you” and “Too much”
She doesn’t have anything you want to steal
Well nothing you can touch
She waves, she buttons your shirt
The traffic is waiting outside
She hands you this coat
She gives you her clothes
These cars collide

Pretty in pink, isn’t she?
Pretty in pink, isn’t she?

All their favorite rags are worn
And other kinds of uniform
Kitty, you’re really free like individuality
You are what you want to be
Until tomorrow the driveway’s broken
His doorbell sings its chimes
In time with what and for who
God knows why I tried this
Vicious drug and I shake

#MusicMonday Dave by Missing Andy

A new month, a new Monday! So that means music! Hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek, the Music Monday tag allows you to share a song/video you love!

I’ve chosen a local Essex band today who I learnt about from the old Sky One show MUST BE THE MUSIC, in which they came second. This is the song ‘Dave’ taken from their album Generation Silenced. And I love them!!

I’m Dirty Suzanna
I’ve got problems with grammar
So boy where’s your manners
Come buy me a slammer
She said how you doing
Welcome to Canning Town
I ain’t got much money
And I talk real funny
Now let me in the back of your van
Now I’ve had a couple of drinks
But you look a bit of alright
And I put your band sticker on me Primark knickers
And I think that might have broken the ice
She told me her brother was a thief
Her dad got nicked for knocking out a coppers teeth
Her mum stayed home washing all the pots and pans
And when her old man came home he knocked her round
And she told me her mother was on meph
Her daddy used to run with the ICF
I like getting out now then to catch a breath and meet a bloke or two
And that’s when she said
I’m dirty Suzanna
I’ve got problems with grammar
Some say it’s my stammer
But it’s not, not my fault
So boy where’s your manners
Come buy me a slammer
And you’ll get laid
And I will call you Dave
Yeah, I will call you Dave
Even though your name is Steve
She said that her last fella
He was a proper upmarket guy
Said he took her to the races
And all the nice places like Nandos and TGI
She reached for her sambucca
As I notice her tattoo
It was a love heart with Steve
It was written down her sleeve
Yeah my last bloke was called Dave too
She told me she struggled with her speech
And ducked a lot of school to go hang out on the street
She tried so hard even spoken therapy
No matter what she tried said they never worked for me
She told me she never had no friends
But made a few acquaintances’ by opening her legs
I think you and me we could probably go the length and have a sprog or two
And that’s when she said
I’m dirty Suzanna
I’ve got problems with grammar
Some say it’s my stammer
But it’s not, not my fault
So boy where’s your manners
Come buy me a slammer
And you’ll get laid
And I will call you Dave
Yeah, I will call you Dave
Even though your name is Steve
Oooo ooo Suzanna, Oooo ooo Suzanna
She said lets go out
Lets go out to the cinema
There’s a Vue in Beckton or Dagenham
And it really ain’t that far
You can bring the big van
I’ll bring the condoms and we can
**** all through the night
That’s why they call me dirty Suzanne
And if I should have a baby
We’ll get a council flat
Or maybe get a council house
Nah, you need three kids for that
You can take me shopping to Lakeside if we’re flash
And we’ll have all we need
Child Benefits and cash
I’m dirty Suzanna
I’ve got problems with grammar
Some say it’s my stammer
But it’s not, not my fault
I’m dirty Suzanna
I’ve got problems with grammar
Some say it’s my stammer
But it’s not, not my fault
So boy where’s your manners
Come buy me a slammer
And you’ll get laid
And I will call you Dave
Yeah, I will call you Dave
Even though your name is…… Steve
