Embarrassing Records - My Final Word...

Okay, before I get on and write a proper post, this is my last word on embarrassing records . . .




Also, if anyone has any suggestions as to where Mrs P and I should go on Friday, then please let us know. I think there might be pictures and a slide show available for purchase after the event.

I see nothing embarrassing there... :)

PI said...

It's so awful it's lovely:)
Re blog meet - somewhere quiet and friendly where you can have a drink and a bite and a blether would be my suggestion.
I hope we'll get a full report.

scarlet-blue said...

To be honest Ms Cakes, I was singing along when I played it...

Lots of memories Pat .... and I'm sure you'll be getting a full report and Mrs P will have to testify that I'M NOT GINGER! Ha. Sorry.

Oh, I remember this, dear me yes. A what a likable bunch they were, in their own way! Skool outing to St Mary's Bay in Sussex: sandcastles, sending postcards home, eating icepops, all the girls wearing tarten - including tarten scarfs tied around their wrists - and the worst ride of my life (no, not Big Janice behind the bike sheds, but a hovercraft trip to Boulogne). Word verification is casiza - a Japanese delicacy made from jellyfish puree.

What better place for two writers than the Coach & Horses, Greek St? Look forward to the documentary. Love this clip. (The Afghan looked a lot like a member of the Bay City Rollers when she was a puppy - mullet on dog, v good look) x

scarlet-blue said...

Yes, I had a tartan scarf tied round my wrist Gadj... but I was really nothing more than a baby...

Thank you Kate, I will check out Greek Street! Yep, I was in love with Woody... mullet n'all...

MJ said...

I'll need more information about this Mrs. P before I can decide on where to send the pair of you.

Are you both in the same part of England?

Mr Coppens said...

S A T-I-R
C-A-L
RIGHT?

Those silly Gits were simply rehashing served over Frankie Valli...
and the people ate it up

I am afraid that you leave me with little choice..
I must fight Fire with Fire...

now I must invoke the painful memory of Crazy Horses by the Osmonds?

scarlet-blue said...

We're meeting in London MJ, Mrs P is a 'A lock-keeper's daughter from just south of Heston Services'... Although she's also a Doctor's daughter as well... but she is a lady...

I don't think I can quite bring myself to go to your link Mr Coppens, maybe in a bit, after a stiff drink...

scarlet-blue said...

Well, that does look like Mrs P's type of Pub Kate!!!

EmmaK said...

I love that song!

But how come they couldn't afford enough material to make the trousers reach their ankles?

Mr Coppens said...

((buck-buck-buck-buck))

KAZ said...

Lovely!
I just adore that little bum starver jacket.
OOoo I think I'm going to play it again.

Gorilla Bananas said...

The song is fine if you ignore the words, but their rent boy look isn't fashionable today. Would you have rented them, Miss Scarlet?

scarlet-blue said...

I know Emma and we used to show off stripey socks below the cropped trousers... with converse boots... and loads of badges. I don't remember it that well... I was very very young....

It's still too early for The Osmonds Mr Coppens... D'ya know I might do 'Juke-box Mondays' in future... be a good way to start the week...

Kaz, admittedly, I've played it more than once today. What do you reckon on Juke-box Mondays?

Mr GB... at the time I would have done just about anything for a Bay City Roller... but as I said... I was a bit too young...

Flipping word verification codes are writing comments by themselves... I'm not going to give it the satisfaction of typing out what it says.... ha....

The Dotterel said...

Oh, Scarlett. Did you have to? (Incidentally, Crazy Horses is a fine song, even if it is by the Osmonds.)

cabil, btw.

:: Wendy :: said...

Ah yes, instilling good moral values, marriage, fidelity, clean shaving with a somewhat unconvincingly sincere delivery. I was a Slade fan all the way which saved me from swerving into tartedn-edged dress-crimes.

Tea at the Ritz is rather pleasant though photographing the experience is prohibitted.

~Static~ said...

That's hot.

Gadjo Dilo said...

I'm happy to believe that you were swaddled in a Bay City Rollers scarf upon entering into the world, Scarlet. Slade - Yehhh!!!! And Crazy Horses actually wasn't such a bad song, he's right.

scarlet-blue said...

Sorry Mr Dotterel! And I'm afraid we're not in agreement about The Osmonds song.... It puts my teeth on edge...

I swear that Noddy wore tartan Wendy???! It's fashionable again btw. Are you coming on Friday?? Tea at the Ritz sounds a nice idea.

I thought you'd like it Static

Gadj, yep, even my nappies were tartan. No, Mr Dotterel is not right. Sorry Mr Dotterel.

Ginro said...

I still cringe whenever I see the Baycity Rollers. My sisters were very much into them, along with David Cassidy etc.

Word - getyourhaircut

scarlet-blue said...

Ah Ginro.... I see that you're also a victim of the word verification codes.

Frobisher said...

Weren't a couple of the Bay City Rollers ex-rent boys? (if my memory serves me correctly)

scarlet-blue said...

Probably Frobi, they certainly weren't as clean cut as they made out.

librarylizzie said...

Thee and me must be of a very similar age*, Ms S., if our early childhood paasions and crushes are anything to go by. This vid brought it all flooding back.

* That is 21 and a bit!

scarlet-blue said...

Sshhhh Lizzie... nobody has noticed... and we're only 16 and a bit...

Mrs Pouncer said...

Scarls, we must decide where we're going. I've mailed you.

Word vert. Nulaina, which is the name I think I'll assume for our outing.

Glamourpuss said...

I remember the girl next door being all swoony about Bay City Rollers - I was more interested in ponies, I'm afraid.

Puss

scarlet-blue said...

Puss: Ponies were probably a better idea!

Kevin Musgrove said...

Jukebox Monday sounds good.

I'll see the Rollers and bid Conrad Veidt.

preal? I'm sure that's something naughty a chap knows nothing about.

scarlet-blue said...

Kev: Erm.. I think I'll keep the rollers..
And 'Yes' to Juke-box Mondays!
