Speaking of diving expeditions, here’s a bit of lovely George Michael

31 January, 2010

Mentioning the diving expedition to Belize that I took part in in an earlier post brought this to mind.

A week before I set off I was browsing around the sale rack in Monsoon searching for funky shorts, when this tune came on. I immediately loved it, which is quite unusual for me, and dashed across to the tills to ask who was singing, and what it was. Having been furnished with the answer I shot off to HMV to buy a copy of the album Listen Without Prejudice, which turned out to be utterly FAB! Even though I’d never taken any notice at all of GM prior to that.

I listened to this tune almost all the way from Manchester to Belize City. (I’m a bit obsessive, like that *g*) I’ll never forget touching down in what was then (and is still) prolly the most exotic place I’ve ever visited, with this great song echoing through my head.

I love the whole album, but the next one is my second favourite. It’s a Stevie Wonder song, I think. He’s another fabulous writer, IMO.

In fact, here’s the Stevie Wonder version too, just for the sake of completeness and the joy of comparison *g*

Another great tune :) And on Phil, from Location, Location, Location…

Very different from the last one, but another of my favourite tunez.

I’m just watching Phil Spencer in Oz, and it occurs to me to ask whether anybody has another Phil at hand, and unattached. If so, please send him over here. I think he’s really lovely *g*

Phil from Location, Location etc

(Piglet and Piss-Puss like him too.)
