Polka-dotty



Gloom is all around us. Everyone has re-entered the reality of January: the Festering Season is indeed truly over, all the Xmas trees have gone to the tip - or to the lions! - the train fares have gone up, we don't get paid again for weeks, the weather is wet and miserable, and the central heating in the office has broken down again (as it always does in winter)...

Time for a bit of a cheer-up, methinks, as we take a little trip in our time machine back thirty years.

Here's the dolly duo of one-hit-wonders who called themselves Strawberry Switchblade, new entry in the charts of this week in 1985, with the excellently chirpy Since Yesterday:



Just close your eyes and then remember
The thoughts you've locked away
When tomorrow comes you'll wish
You had today

And as we sit here alone
Looking for a reason to go on
It's so clear that all we have now
Are our thoughts of yesterday

If you're still there when it's all over
I'm scared I'll have to say
That a part of you has gone
Since yesterday

And as we sit here alone
Looking for a reason to go on
It's so clear that all we have now
Are our thoughts of yesterday

Well, maybe this could be the ending
With nothing left of you
A hundred wishes couldn't say
I don't want to

And as we sit here alone
Looking for a reason to go on
It's so clear that all we have now
Are our thoughts of yesterday

It's so clear that all we have now
Are thoughts of yesterday
