ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On April 3rd, 2020

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the rapidly vanishing coalface of capitalism. I’m beginning to feel like Hiroo Onoda. Remember the checkout ladies. They’re doing their bit too, at great risk. A little thank you can go a long way. Especially when you politely don’t get too close.

I haven’t given a moment’s thought to this week’s jukebox. My mind has been wondering instead where I’m going to get some eggs this weekend. Every supermarket has a queue. All access is controlled now and I don’t have time to join a queue of people who should be at home instead. Those checkout dollies need to work faster.

So just one chosen at random this week, for no other reason than I like it. But it’s still a great song by a great songwriter. Have a good weekend whatever you’re up to at home. As always, do share your top sounds down below –

  2. My mind has been wondering instead where I’m going to get some eggs this weekend.

    Pete, when I’m not harvesting turnips, I am gathering fresh free range eggs.

    We have six chickens.

    😉

  3. Pete and all other music lovers.

    My mate’s a DJ and is streaming a live set from his kitchen in Belfast on Facebook ATM. This is the link and it’s open:

    Give it a listen. The tunes are bloody brilliant.

  4. ….is streaming a live set from his kitchen in Belfast on Facebook ATM for all those socially isolating.

  5. Paul

    The problem being, you have to “log in” to Farcebook to listen to it.

    No thanks.

    But I’m sure the tunes are banging anyway.

  6. Cheers Paul. Good stuff.

    kurt –

    The Beatles are my favourite band and they’re the greatest band, and it’s partly because John Lennon wanted to be Bob Dylan.

    Harri –

    So that about a dozen females you’re feeding by my reckoning.

  7. fair play petem, i did grow up with both, but at school college the rolling stone, led zep, pink floyd kinda took over .. now i look back and think what Dylan is to the Mind, Beatles are to the emotions; and its great to feed both 🙂

  8. Pete.

    Six of them are chicken feed.

    The others.

    Not so cheep (pun fully intended)

    We have three dogs as well, all females.

    My office and lab are now just a distant memory of calmness.

    I’m on my 23rd day.

    What’s the score for other ATW regulars?

  9. 23rd day?

    Apart from not being able to stroll into a supermarket life is just a bit more busy for me. Regulations have been lifted on the hours we can work so it’s all hands deck.

    I really have to get me one of these non-essential jobs.

  10. Pete.

    Myself, and my family thank you for your service.

    At 7.45am until 8.00am three days a week, we are classed as “key workers” we can wander around the local supermarkets as free as birds.

    My wife being a Nurse, who has just transferred to the NHS frontline, yes I can understand being a key worker.

    But I’m not so sure about me?

    23rd day?

    Yep, and after a call with my German boss today, it will more than likely last for at least another 56 days?

    I have more wood ready for next winter in my log storage building than Sherwood Forest.

    And I have another 56 days left to go..

    😉

  12. Thank you Harri. In truth life is more busy doing the rounds yet the roads are a doddle. Everyone’s walking and cycling but the traffic has never been better.

    I hope your missus is taking care.

  13. Thanks back Pete.

    Yes, she is (or was) very busy, but has been off for two days, due to a lack of POE?

    I kid you not.

    This Tuesday, all referred Nurses attended an NHS course on how to use, and conform to using full Hazmat equipment, after paying £4 to park her motor in the local NHS hospital, there was a problem?, no PPE was available to perform the tasks.

    Now, just remind me, how long have our government along with the NHS been pissing cash up the wall on the desperate need for Diversity, Inclusion officers, Interpreters, and Gender realignment advisors on lottery win salaries

    Those chickens are finally coming home to roost.

    The NHS are not short of cash, they are short of common sense.

    Now that really is in short supply

  14. Bloody smasher from the early eighties:

  15. I had to queue up today for half an hour just to get into bloody Iceland.

    Things we never thought we would experience in modern life 😉

  16. This is a song about Ruben Carter, a bad guy and a murderer.

    Kelley is a nice, hard-working 61-year-old woman from Newark. She was working as a bail bondswoman in 1975 when Muhammad Ali asked her to get involved in the effort to win a new trial for Carter, who claimed he had been framed in a triple murder.

    She devoted more than a year of her life to raising funds for Carter. That effort was successful, and Carter’s appeal was upheld. In March 1976, Carter was released on bail to await a new trial.

    Six weeks later, the tough middleweight boxer beat the 112-pound Kelley into unconsciousness and left her lying in a fetal position on the floor of his hotel room.

  17. one of the few songs of Dylans that I like.

    following that theme.

    That is terrible about your wife and no PPE and socked with a parking fee. There needs to be a reckoning on the PPE issue, and it has always been disgraceful the NHS charges for parking, especially for staff.

  19. Pete

    Your advice is spot on about the check out ladies. The poor girls are working their babs off on the front lines, while half the country is on paid holiday. And they don’t make that much money either.

  26. Matt’s inspiring words encapsulate our gratitude for the NHS and all key-workers and this emphasises why we all need to do our bit to relieve the strain on them by following the public health guidelines.”

    Matt’s poem:

    I’ll tell you a tale that’s been recently written,

    Of a powerful army, so Great it saved Britain.

    They didn’t have bombs and they didn’t have planes,

    ​They fought with their hearts and they fought with their brains.

    ​They didn’t have bullets, armed just with a mask,

    We sent them to war, with one simple task.

    To show us the way, to lead and inspire us,

    To protect us from harm and fight off the virus.

    ​It couldn’t be stopped by our bullet proof vests,

    ​An invisible enemy, invaded our chests.

    ​So we called on our weapon, our soldiers in blue,

    All doctors, all nurses, your country needs you!

    We clapped on our streets, hearts bursting with pride,

    As they went off to war, while we stayed inside.

    They struggled at first, as they searched for supplies,

    But they stared down the virus, in the whites of its eyes.

    They leaped from the trenches and didn’t think twice,

    Some never came back, the ultimate price.

    So tired, so weary, yet still they fought on,

    ​As the virus was beaten and the battle was won.

    The many of us, owe so much to so few,

    The brave and the bold, our heroes in blue.

    So let’s line the streets and remember our debt,

    We love you, our heroes, lest we forget.
