It's So Funny...

...how we don't talk anymore.

Damn you, Cliff Richard! DAMN YOU!!!!!!!!!!

It's been about ten days since we were in Paris, but that song continues to haunt me. Why? Because a poster advertising an upcoming Cliff Richard concert in Paris was plastered on the wall everywhere we looked in the Métro.

I began humming his 70s (only American?) hit, and I still can't get the stupid song out of my head. You know the one:

It's so funny how we don't talk anymore.
It's so funny why we don't talk anymore.
But I ain't losing sleep and I ain't counting sheep.
It's so funny how we don't talk anymore.


It's so funny? No, it's not!

P.S. PLEASE NOTE: Obligatory Eiffel Tower pictures...

You mean "Wired for Sound" didn't make it Stateside? For shame!

I'm sorry, but...are you wearing a *beret* in that photo?!

ms mac - I just checked Wikipedia and "Wired For Sound" made it to #71 in the U.S. charts. It's amazing how many hits he had in the U.K., and how few he had in the U.S. I guess he's kind of the Robbie Williams of his day in that respect.

sal - Why yes, I am wearing a beret. As a matter of fact, I own two. I wore the black one in Paris, and I was wearing the blue one in the picture from Geneva.

Ok, but you might want to consider buying a green one. You know...just to mess with people's heads.

I have been singing it in my head (I hope) as Mrs. Miller ever since you wrote this...

For some reason, I am not able to post using my google beta account on your blog. I do not have this on any other site?

The Big Finn said...

Sal - I don't know if green is my color. Plus, my head is so damn big that somebody my confuse it for a putting green.

TMS - So, how then are you posting comments now. And...WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF THIS GOOGLE BETA THING? What is it? I just use the old fashioned version, and I don't understand what the reason is for switching. Haven't people had problems with it? Why should I switch? Somebody...anybody...please tell me. I've asked several times. Is there anybody out there?

TBF- For one, try an orange Beret. Orange suits you (and the Missus) very well) then go to Amsterdam with it.

As for Beta, I ain't changing either before they get it fixed. A lot of bugs, I hear.

The Medium Swede said...

There really is no advantage to Beta. I have a gmail account thru google so it kind of tricked me into switching.

I am posting now (you will notice sans my photo) by choosing the identity of Other. Then I type my screen name and my blogspot address.

Rather of a pain in the arse but oh well.

"Oh Jack, it's so GD funny how we don't go to WHS anymore!"

I hear they have ice skating on the first level of the Eiffel Tower if you want another excuse to go back to Paris soon...
