ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On February 14th, 2020

Because Friday night is Jukebox Night, and a happy St Valentine’s Day to all the hot chicks out there.

No sooner does one storm go than another one arrives. I’m pretty sure it has rained and winded incessantly since October. Yeah I love working outside sometimes.

So you have yourselves a good weekend. I’ve decided on a quick trip to Sainsbury’s in the morning and nothing else. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below. Oh and my choice? Yes, I am a bit of a 10CC fan.

    I do hope your Valentines greetings to all ‘hot chicks’ is an inclusive one and is also aimed at all individuals who identify as ‘hot chicks’ 😉

  2. I’m a true liberal, Colm. I defend the right of anyone to self-identify as a hot chick, blokes not included of course. They’re mental.

    Yes Pete

    The reason that we are getting milder and wetter winters is because our winds are coming more from the south and south-west and less from the north and north-west. The Scottish ski resorts are at the sharp end of this and have had to invest heavily in snow-making machines to stay in business. I heard a Yorkshire hill farmer on the radio this morning. She said that their winter extremes used to be about snow and ice but now they are mostly about rain and wind.

    The change in prevailing winds is linked to the rapid melt of Arctic sea-ice and the effect it has on the sea temperature difference between the north Atlantic and the mid Atlantic. And we all know why the sea ice is melting.

  4. It’s weather.

  5. No, it’s climate. Weather is this week. Climate is the last few decades. And the next few.

    But you know this, I’ve explained it to you so many times.

  6. 10cc one of my favourite bands I haven’t listened to a track of this for ages. Nice one.

    This is one of my favourite 10cc tracks.

  7. Peter,

    No, it’s climate. Weather is this week. Climate is the last few decades. And the next few.

    But you know this, I’ve explained it to you so many times.

    I’m pretty sure that Pete Moore knows mankind is influencing the climate.
    He’s just being classic Pete with his pretend ignorance.

  8. I’m pretty sure that Pete Moore knows mankind is influencing the climate.

    I’m pretty sure I don’t know that mankind is influencing the global cooling.

  9. You mean this global cooling?

    “Antarctica has hit a record temperature of over 20 degrees Celsius (°C) for the first time, just a few days after it had already broken the previous highest record. A reading from the Esperanza base in western Antarctica showed a temperature of 18.3°C last week, but another measurement at Seymour Island, less than 100km away, reportedly hit 20.75°C just a few days later. That is around the average temperature for the summer month of June in London.”

  10. Or maybe you mean this global cooling, at the other pole:

    “The Arctic is warming far more quickly than anywhere else on the planet. Temperatures climbed nearly 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit (1 Celsius) in the past decade alone. At the current rate of greenhouse gas emissions, the North is on track to warm 7.2 F (4 C) year-round—and top 12.6 F (7 C) in autumns—by the middle of this century, according to the report. That’s about when the planet as a whole is projected to reach the 3.6 F (2 C) warming often cited as the threshold for disastrous impacts.

    Already, the High North is seeing unprecedented changes, including drastic ice losses on land and sea, galloping permafrost thaw, raging wildfires, unseasonal storms, earlier springs, and more. Summer sea ice this year shrank to its second lowest extent since satellite measurements began in 1979, while record July heat melted billions of tons of ice off the Greenland ice sheet. Wildfires blazed across millions of acres from Alaska to Siberia.”

  11. This is the theme tune from The Last of the Mohicans played by an interesting orchestra. High adventure music for a high adventure film:

  12. Nice track Peter.
    It’s been a pretty quiet Friday night jukebox. I normally listen to these during my Saturday lunch hour.
    Here’s another one from me. In honour of beetlejuice possibly going supernova.

  13. That Gael tune from last of the Mohicans was pretty cool, good visually too

    I just shared it with some people

    Thanks

  14. Peter last year as the US Economy BOOMED the United States Carbon Emissions FELL 2.9% 140 metric Tons. The largest decline of ANY country in 2019…..

    Not Only do we “leed” the World in Gas and Oil Production, but we lead the WORLD in lowering Emissions…… god bless Fracking.

    Here a song for you

  17. Patrick Van Roy,

    as for the Music 10cc was never high on my list, but this was always a great slow song to dance and hold your girl to

    I’m not in love by 10cc evokes a wonderful memory for me. It reminds me of the time my mother picked myself and my brother up from school and took us to Formby beach on the train. A man on the train with a transistor radio playing this song. Whenever I hear it it makes me think of that wonderful evening watching the sunset, playing on the beach with my brother.
