I love the poetry of Lady Grinning Soul and Sweet Thing.

But does it stand up to Alvin Sardust's finest:


Tom Cat! You know where it's at!
Come on ! Let's go to my flat
Lay down 'n groove on the mat


"I feel I may be the subject of The Prettiest Star"

Personally I love

"David what shall I do they wait for me in the hallway" "I say don't ask me I don't know any hallways"

It's that or

"Ha ha ha, hee hee hee"

I'll catch a butterfly and eat it and I will be sick.

Personal long-time fave.

Sailors in snow
Send a callout raising hands
Some are bound to fail
Some are winter sun, ah

Sailors in snow

Just read Pegg's lines on Some Are and it states that the line is
Sleigh-bells in snow and was probably written for TMWFTE - the Mary Lou/Santa Claus scene at the end which makes sense. However, I googled the lyrics and then checked the lyrics on this site and they all say 'Sailors in snow'

Just listened to it carefully and it is Sleigh bells to my ears!

Curiouser and curiouser . . .

Sleigh bells rocks!

well he was always into double meaning, but if you write poetry...well sometimes these come up...but it does sound like sleigh-bells to me. have to go off and listen again and i'm totally stoned on weed.

Hello Stranger by Barbara Lewis is used to good effect in Moonlight.

Didn't a young Bowie cover it at gigs?

"Those midwives to history put on their bloody robes" is worthy of the Bard.

I could easily imagine someone in the Henriad saying that.
