Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

This week the award goes to ELO, and the feature song is quite excellent, which makes it quite appropriate for use during the credits of the excellent documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle [1].

The feature song is Mister Blue Sky

(Morning, today’s forecast calls for blue skies)

Sun is shinin’ in the sky
There ain’t a cloud in sight
It’s stopped rainin’ everybody’s in a play
And don’t you know
It’s a beautiful new day (hey hey hey)

Runnin’ down the avenue
See how the sun shines brightly, in the city
On the streets where once was pity
Mister Blue Sky is living here today (hey hey hey)

Mister Blue Sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?

Mister Blue Sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?

Hey you with the pretty face
Welcome to the human race
A celebration, Mister Blue Sky’s up there waitin’
And today is the day we’ve waited for (ah ah aah)

Mister Blue Sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?

Hey there Mister Blue
We’re so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do
Everybody smiles at you

Hey there Mister Blue
We’re so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do
Everybody smiles at you

(Mister Blue Sky, Mister Blue Sky)
(Mister Blue Sky-y)

Mister Blue, you did it right
But soon comes Mister Night, creepin’ over
Now his hand is on your shoulder
Never mind I’ll remember you this..
I’ll remember you this way

Mister Blue Sky please tell us why
You had to hide away for so long (so long)
Where did we go wrong?

Hey there Mister Blue (Sky)
We’re so pleased to be with you (sky)
Look around see what you do (blue)
Everybody smiles at you
Ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba
Baah baah

Ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba
Baah baah baah

(Mister Blue Sky)

You missed out on one ‘ba’ in the last line.

Bah.

The song drifts off in such a way that the words are more or less indecipherable after the line you are referring to, and there are probably a lot of words missing, however the line you are referring to is complete.

Bah.

Baron, perhaps I should repeat my comment from my other post where you started calling me names.

I think you posted that comment knowing that I would get quite angry about it. You were right.

However, as I think you were just trying to make trouble, and don’t know the true nature of any friendship I may have with various radio presenters, I’m not going to ban you.

Your comment was very hurtful, and it annoys me that you couldn’t wait an extra 47 minutes so that you wouldn’t be leaving that comment on my birthday.

All I can really say is that your immature comment here is a rather poor conclusion to your attempt on your website to convince me that you are incredibly more mature than me. I’m not claiming to be more mature than you…just pointing out that your feeble attempt at name-calling was very immature.

Who was name-calling? Keep on topic please.

Oh, the ‘stalker’ comment.

Apologies. I understand now. Sorry.

I probably only needed to copy one or two sentences of that comment to make my point. The rest was probably superfluous.
