Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

This week the award goes to the first Australian band to reach gold record status in the US…I am of course referring to the Little River Band. Unfortunately choosing just one feature song proved to be an almost impossible task…and with so many songs to choose from I could easily just do a text dump of the lyrics of each and every one of their songs, but in the end I did manage to limit myself to one song…don’t be surprised if the Little River Band return here in a couple weeks with another feature song though!

The feature song this time is “The Night Owls”…sounds like a good description of my radio listening habits actually!

There’s a bar right across the street
He’s got a need he just can’t beat
Out on the floor, he shuffles his feet away
He’ll get the girl ’cause he looks so fine
He’s gonna win her every time
He knows he will, he’s dressed to kill
He’s a night owl

Move on
there’s a heart of a night owl callin’
To belong
she’s cryin’ in the night
Be strong
and find the heart of the night owl fallin’
Stay up till dawn
until the night is gone

What will become of the restless kind
Where do they go when they’ve done their time
Wearin’ their hearts out on the line
for all to see
Must be the gypsy in their soul
They have a need to rock and roll
They always will
they’re out there still
They’re the night owls

Move on
there’s a heart of a night owl callin’
To belong
she’s cryin in the night
Be strong
and find the heart of the night owl fallin’
Stay up till dawn
until the night has gone

There’s a bar right across the street
He’s got a need he just can’t beat
Out on the floor he shuffles his feet away yeah yeah
He’ll get the girl ’cause he looks so fine
He’s gonna win her every time
He knows he will, he’s out there still
He’s a night owl

Move on
there’s a heart of a night owl callin’
To belong
she’s cryin’ in the night the night goes on and on
Be strong
find the heart of the night owl fallin’
Stay up till dawn until the night has gone

More Emails

Serial detractor Sam Granleese (we previously met Sam here) has sent in an email titled “Good News”

Hi Samuel,

I wrote to you a few months ago declaring your website to be the most trite piece of word-vomit on the known internet.

Upon returning, it is good to see that nothing has changed. You are still trying to lose your virginity by going to www.tammin.com, you are still a freak and you still have nothing interesting to say about anything.

Congratulations!

Sam

I decided, with some trepedation, to visit the website he mentioned so that I could work out what he was going on about…it turned out to be the website of some singer I’ve never heard of before. I still can’t work out what he is going on about…I don’t find her in the least bit attractive.

On the bright side, it would appear that Sam is still wasting his time reading websites of people he doesn’t like, and making sure that they know about it…either that or he secretly finds this site so interesting and entertaining that he has to make sure he gets to take part in the fun and excitement…I’ll let you decide.

Next email is from “bob759” (sorry for bundling you into the same post as Sam Granleese) who writes

You said “I (generally) can’t check the website, or update it, from work”, does that mean you had the day off yesterday as you updated the blog many times

No Bob, I scheduled the posts to appear throughout the day…that is my standard practice for all but the most urgent posts as it keeps the site “ticking over” and means I don’t post five things at once, which effectively buries most of the posts for the majority of readers who don’t often venture past the first post. For the record, the majority of those posts were written in the wee hours of Friday morning, with one written earlier in the week.

Samuel
