Only Love Can hurt Like This

I love Paloma Faith
This belter is her best song to date
Bloody hell...dog management and popular music all in one day
How eclectic am I?
Tomorrow what will it be?
Hits from the shows and the life and times of Benny Hill?
Who knows
Enjoy

  7. Quite the torch singer, to use a term from long ago.

    I thought Benny Hill funny, in a vaudevillian way, until the oldest pointed out the the not funny part, how it treated women, what it said underneath it all.

    Lord knows, I'm not an 'enlightened guy', but at age 70 I don't care for the way we've progressed over my years. Who gives a damn who does what with who, why marriage is not for everyone who loves each other, why...anything that drives us apart.

    I gotta get my humor back.

  8. That's the 1st time I've heard her. A tad flat in places, but that seems popular these days.

  10. What a powerful, bluesy voice. I wish I could sing like that. I get tired of hearing I have a sweet soprano voice. I wanna rock out.

    Love,
    Janie

  14. eeeew Benny Hill ..No thanks!!

  15. I love Paloma Faith too. She sticks out from the crowd, unlike many other run-of-the-mill female singers. And I always hated Benny Hill and his excruciating woman-chasing.

  16. Whenever I think of our entertainers of yesteryear 'operation yew tree' comes to mind. (Not that I am accusing Benny Hill of anything untoward) My childhood memories have been sullied though. As for Paloma, I like her but not the song.

  17. One of her better ones I admit, I'm not totally smitten, I much preferred Amy Winehouse, at least her songs had good lyrics.

    It can't have taken long to write this one!!

  18. I'm more of a Cilla Black fan myself, but pleased to say I did like the backing singers and dog etiquette earlier...

  22. Recently we saw some Dave Allen shows on cable TV. I loved him as a kid, we all did, and I was horrified at some of the skits on his show - one where a woman who had been beaten by her husband was in court and turned out to be the butt of the joke somehow. I don't remember that stuff but then 40 years ago we just took it all for granted really didn't we. I love Paloma Faith too, and I love HER, cheeky fun woman that she is!
