I wasn't going to write a list today. If truth be told, I was feeling uninspired. I am sitting in the studio reception. It should be rammed today, we should have at least 30 sessions booked. We have 15. I've spent all week refunding bands for cancelled sessions, which were not required as their well paid Xmas shows have bitten the dust. I shouldn't even be working, Saturday is a day off, but one of my staff is off with Omicron. Luckily he wasn't around when he contracted it, so we are only a man down. But then I saw a post on Facebook that a mate of mine has got married (he'd kept it quiet). It cheered me up. Amongst all of the despair, I thought, yeah, you know what, the world goes on. Why be miserable. I stuck on Ian Dury and thought, I'll do my bit to spread a little joy. I was going to make my list, but when Ian Dury has already made a list, why would I argue with him. While the music of Ian Dury still exists, the world will always spin on its access.
Here's a playlist to cheer you up. If it doesn't you are beyond redemption! This time next week it will be Xmas and in two weeks it will be 2022. We can only hope that it will be a better year, if that isn't a reason to be cheerful what is?
