"Every lousy Monday morning
Heathrow jets go crashing over our home
Ten o'clock Broadmoor siren
Driving me mad, won't leave me alone"

I used to hear the Broadmoor siren at 10.00AM each Monday morning from where I used to work.

Whilst it's true, Tom Jones hasn't got a bad singing voice, I always preferred John Otway's version of Green Green Grass. It's such a shame that I can't find a youtube video of him singing it that shows off his..... erm.... skills :rofl2:

It isn't the singing, it's his smug personality I find abhorrent.

She certainly is. I have one of her CDs. She looks better than she sounds. Not that she sounds bad.

YouTube video of that one:

That's really some skill Mick wish I could do it. Most I ever did musically was a few cowboy songs on a mouth organ...badly.

Well two songs dont make a Pickled Egg theme...but I'm sure the punters will sing along to the chorus even though they may not get past "Home Home on the Range Where the Deer and the Antelope play"

Random fact about the film Westworld.......

"Westworld was the first feature film to use digital image processing. Crichton originally went to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, but after learning that two minutes of animation would take nine months and cost $200,000, he contacted John Whitney Sr., who in turn recommended his son John Whitney, Jr. The latter went to Information International, Inc., where they could work at night and complete the animation both faster and much more cheaply. John Whitney, Jr. digitally processed motion picture photography at Information International, Inc. to appear pixelized in order to portray the Gunslinger android's point of view. The approximately 2 minutes and 31 seconds worth of cinegraphic block portraiture was accomplished by color-separating (three basic color separations plus black mask) each frame of source 70 mm film images, scanning each of these elements to convert into rectangular blocks, then adding basic color according to the tone values developed. The resulting coarse pixel matrix was output back to film."

You learn something mildly interesting .... some days :-D
