Day 7/30 a song that reminds you of a certain event…

The Paddingtons: Shame about Elle.

Smile for the nice man,

smile for the camera,

smile for the nice man,

wont you do it again

Day 97/365 Day 7/30 a song that reminds you of a certain event

Taken at Hull Freedom concert 2009. The Paddingtons performing to a crowd of 20,000 local fans.

The song reminds me of the very 1st open air concert that I ever photographed. It was also the 1st time I had heard the Paddingtons perform live. They did a fantastic set, which ended in a mic stand thrown in my direction and the guitarist been dragged off stage by other band members

Day 6/30 Song that reminds you of somewhere….

The Killers: When we where young.

We're burning down the highway skyline
On the back of a hurricane that started turning
When you were young
When you were young

Had this playing when we drove of the English/Scottish border. I had always thought the line was “burning down the highway, Scotland”. Thank you twisted lyrics.

Day 96/365 Song that reminds you of somewhere..

Day 5/30 Song that reminds you of someone…

House of Pain: Jump around.

While going through my music collection I had several songs that reminded me of different people. My favourite is Jump around by House of Pain. This fits with my life at the moment because if I did jump I would be in a world of pain, due to the surgery I had done on my ankle.

Day 88/365 Asymmetrical Symmetry 
The reason the song reminds me of two of my friends is it was playing on the radio when we where driving back from Robin Hoods Bay. We had spent all day driving two Toyota Hi-lux pick-ups off road. The best part of the day was driving over a five foot high sew-saw. Glad to say that I am still good friends with both of them.

This was shot was taken at one of the motocross events I photographed on 35mm in the early nineties. Here’s Jase and Nige.

Day 4/30 Song that makes you sad: Abba- Hasta Manana

Would have been my mums birthday today. She was a big Abba fan. I grew listening to all their songs. Now when I hear them I always think of my mum.

Missing you Mum.

Day 94/365 Day 4/30 Song That Makes You Sad: Abba-Hasta Manana

Where is the spring and the summer
That once was yours and mine?
Where did it go?
I just don't know

Radio announcer (spoken) Warning!

Today's forecast calls for blue skies.

Sun is shinin' in the sky, There ain't a cloud in sight

It's stopped rainin' Everybody's in a play And don't you know,

It's a beautiful new day.

Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why,

You had to hide away For so long (so long)

where did we go wrong.

Day 2/30 least favourite song: The Offspring/ Pretty Fly (for a white guy)

The Offspring: Pretty fly (for a white guy)
Find this a really irritating song. And one of the reasons I won't get a tattoo.

Day 92/365 Day 2/30 Least Favourite Song: Offspring/ Pretty Fly(for a white guy)

The world loves wannabes

Hey, hey, do that brand new thing

Now he's getting a tattoo, yeah,

he's gettin' ink done He asked for a 13

but they drew a 31

Friends say he's trying too hard

and he's not quite hip

But in his own mind,

he's the, he's the dopest trip

Day 1 Favourite Song

Day 91/365 Day 1/30 Favorite Song

Mumford and Son: Little Lion Man

Day One of the Facebook song of the day challenge

I have played Mumford and sons album endlessly over the last year. I had not heard of the until they played at Adelphi club. I had the chance of getting some tickets. Unfortunately I had not heard them and never bothered. It was a couple of months later that radio one had them as the artist of the week. Then I could have kick myself.

Rate yourself and rake yourself,

Take all the courage you have left

Wasted on fixing all the problems

That you made in your own head.

I love the lyrics on the entire album. Folksy with a dark edge to it.
