This weekend has been horrible. The weather is cold and grey. I've had nothing on socially. Nobody's been online and I think we're all feeling the winter blues. Winter here lasts about 2 months, three at the most and the greyness is getting me down. So Sunday being the 'get out and do something' day, I rugged up and went to watch Clare play soccer. It was a frustrating game with a nil-all drawer but the girls had possession for most of the game and did themselves proud even if coach Rudi had a conniption at the 'snipers' (girls falling over without any apparent reason) and the lack of forward attack . . if only that ball would go in the goal!
Em played a great game . .fancy footwork
trying to motivate the team
After the game I came home to upload the pics and my favourite radio station have been playing viewer-voted best 100 hits of all time. Unbelievable radio which has been playing the nominated songs all weekend. As I sit here banging away and editing photographs, we're down to the last couple of songs. Some were cult classics, some were surprising but I have to say it's the best radio EVER. Made even more awesome because Triple J is our national youth radio and no ads!
Today they finished the countdown . . . fantastic and quite a coup for the oldies. I was a little surprised to see the Foo Fighters pip Led Zeppelin but . . .so counting down from 10 -1 . . .
Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
(Takes me back to finishing school - erm last day at school not 'finishing' school - and sunrise on Palm Beach)
Everlong - Foo Fighters
(hmm bit surprising, the I guess a lot of people go to Motocross meets)
Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers
(Wouldn't have got my vote for 8 but not a bad song)
Last Goodbye - Jeff Buckley
(Stunning but then you know I want this song played at my funeral)
Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
(Aww and an interview with Freddie, I miss Freddie)
Paranoid Android - Radiohead
(Brilliant . .Thom Yorke is a creative legend)
Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division
(Hmm . . nice but no doughnut)
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
(Killer song . .totally awesome rendition of Leonard's lyrics)
Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine
(The only song that says "Fuck I won't do what you told me" then gets 12,000 people to mosh in unison singing along . . see the irony?
. . . and numero uno . . number one . . the listeners' choice, the one voted best hit of all time . .
(I might be old but I'm not dead) so turn it up, crank up the sub and jump . . .
