There's a chance that we may fall apart before too long



Oh bum. Monday again...

After a weekend of enjoyable meanderings, shopping for trimmings and stuff in Walthamstow and Camden markets (it gets me out of the house and away from murderous thoughts about those marauding brats upstairs), having to get up and out in the murk and gloom of Monday at this time of year is particularly harsh.

It is still a Tacky Music Monday, however! So let's thank heavens for the combined talents of yesterday's birthday girl Miss Tina Turner, together with the unstoppable Cher, and - rather incongruously - Miss Kate Smith [unknown over here, but notable in the US for her campaigns against "indecency" and her famous rendition of God Bless America] and their most bizarre "Beatles Medley" to cheer us up...


Have a good week, peeps!

    1. I wondered the same thing about this clip - who is that woman? Why is she here? It looks like Dame Edna's mother just accidentally wandered in on Cher'n'Tina's gig and just started warbling... Jx

  2. Just a coincidence because it hadn't yet been adopted a symbol of the LGBTQ movement, but note what looks like a rainbow in the back.

    1. Obviously Gilbert Baker was hugely influenced by this show's set design. Jx

  3. Very nice dear!!!! When my gay friends find out I love Kate Smith, they are usually quite appalled....since she was very conservative and reserved. but how far right could she have been, airing with Cher and a black woman back then????

    I also think I adore her because she looked like my dearly departed grandmother in this clip.

    1. Your grandmother used to wear marabou and get up on stage with shimmying showgirls?! That must be where you get it from. Jx
