Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

This week’s award (unfortunately) goes to Pat Wilson and the feature song is (gah) Bop Girl.

Why am I doing this with a song I don’t particularly enjoy? Well I blame Caz for featuring it and Channel Nine for running a movie containing it, as an extract then got stuck in my head and the only way to get rid of it was to learn the lyrics. As per usual for bad annoying songs that get stuck in my head, I am warming to it.

B-O-P-G-I-R-L
Got the whole world searching for their own bop girl
Down in the crowd, I’m in the street
Got the whole world shaking to the big bop beat

She’s a bop girl
She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl
She’s a bop girl
She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl

All you follow, I’ll lead the way
Oh, the bop girl’s A-OK
Dig the bop girl, start to move
down inside that microgroove

B-O-P-G-I-R-L
Got the whole world searching for their own bop girl
Down in the crowd, I’m in the street
Got the whole world shaking to the big bop beat
She’s a bop girl
She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl
She’s a bop girl
She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl

At the dance I’m with my man
Dig the floor, jump with the band
I got friction, I can’t stop
I’m a dancing spinning top

B-O-P-G-I-R-L
Got the whole world searching for their own bop girl
Down in the crowd, I’m in the street
Got the whole world shaking to the big bop beat

(Now dig the bop girl)
(A-and swing that thing, owooooooo!)

She’s a bop girl
She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl
She’s a bop girl
She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl

B-O-P-G-I-R-L (She’s a bop girl)
Got the whole world searching for their own bop girl (She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl)
Down in the crowd, I’m in the street (She’s a bop girl)
Got the whole world shaking to the big bop beat (She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl)

B-O-P-G-I-R-L (She’s a bop girl)
Got the whole world searching for their own bop girl (She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl)
Down in the crowd, I’m in the street (She’s a bop girl)
Got the whole world shaking to the big bop beat (She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl)

B-O-P-G-I-R-L (She’s a bop girl)
Got the whole world searching for their own bop girl (She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl)
Down in the crowd, I’m in the street (She’s a bop girl)
Got the whole world shaking to the big bop beat (She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl)

B-O-P-G-I-R-L (She’s a bop girl)
Got the whole world searching for their own bop girl (She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl)
Down in the crowd, I’m in the street (She’s a bop girl)
Got the whole world shaking to the big bop beat (She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl)

She’s a bop girl, yeah
She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl
She’s a bop girl, yeah
She’s a bop, she’s a bop bop girl

Bag checks

Good morning John,

Just on this subject of bag checks, I have the dubious honour of being the first person to ever set off the beepy alarm in the Canberra City Big W store and be bag checked. It was the first (and only) time that I've had my bag thoroughly searched for potentially stolen items, and as such I wasn't aware that the store staff weren't allowed to touch the bag. I offered them the bag and they almost jumped back in fright at the prospect of touching the bag on their opening day!

I then had to pull everything out of the bag, and eventually the suspect item emerged…an opened half-empty packet of batteries I had bought in a supermarket a few months beforehand! I was then able to go, which was a good thing as 2CC were about to call me to provide comment on the opening of the Canberra centre expansion.

I usually show my bag on the way out as a courtesy, and I tend to find that when you willingly show your bag without being asked, the staff just glance at it, but if they have to ask you to show the bag it becomes a matter of "what's under that thing…and can you take that bit out…and where did you buy that".

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart

Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll: If you were a tennis ball

This week’s poll is purely for fun

If you were a tennis ball, would you rather…

Total Votes: 8
Started: February 10, 2007

Feel free to discuss the poll subject in the comments below. You need to be a registered member of Samuel’s Blog to comment, but anyone can vote. The system will attempt to prevent you from voting more than once, and whilst it might not always be able to do that, I request that you only vote once.

Disclaimer: This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you’re using these numbers to do anything important, you’re insane. That being said, I do try to keep the results fair and accurate, and I try to prevent abuse by unscrupulous voters, but I can’t make any guarantees.

Now for the results from last week’s poll.

Should the Persiflage Puzzle be a part of Samuel’s Persiflage?

Total Votes: 25
Started: February 3, 2007

It looks like plenty of people don’t want the Persiflage Puzzle to be part of Samuel’s Persiflage. I won’t include it in the next episode, and will put a request out for feedback on the matter as I know plenty of Persiflage listeners don’t read this blog regularly.

For a list of all previous results, see the Weekly Poll Results page.
