Rabbi Lionel Blue. Loved listing to him on Thought for the Day on the Today programme, when I used to listen to it.

George Michael RIP. What a fabulous performer and stage presence. Far too young to leave us.

RIP George Micheal. What a great singer/songwriter. "Last Christmas". A lot of talented people have left us this year.

So many childhood memories of Wham! and George Michael:

- the posters I had on my bedroom walls,
- the school discos where everyone bounced up to bop around to "Wake me up before you go go" before retreating to the side of the room when "Careless Whisper" came on,
- Hoping against hope I would be one of the girls the boys asked to dance to Careless Whisper with (it never happened, I had the most horrendous braces and was painfully shy!),
- The first time I was really upset by a band splitting up.

Listening to some of his songs on the radio this morning driving home I have to admit there was a tear in my eye.

Far too young to die, may he rest in peace.

Where do you go to (My Lovely) 1969

I had a lady friend 1979. She hated this song so much..

So condescending to women.. Sexist... Not very PC today.


BUT R.I.P Peter Sarstedt..

The lyrics are firm and inviting.........

You talk like Marlene Dietrich
And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire
Your clothes are all made by Balmain
And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair, yes there are

You live in a fancy apartment
Off the Boulevard St. Michel
Where you keep your Rolling Stones records
And a friend of Sacha Distel, yes you do

You go to the embassy parties
Where you talk in Russian and Greek
And the young men who move in your circles
They hang on every word you speak, yes they do

But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed?
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

I've seen all your qualifications
You got from the Sorbonne
And the painting you stole from Picasso
Your loveliness goes on and on, yes it does

When you go on your summer vacation
You go to Juan-les-Pins
With your carefully designed topless swimsuit
You get an even suntan on your back, and on your legs

And when the snow falls you're found in St. Moritz
With the others of the jet set
And you sip your Napoleon brandy
But you never get your lips wet, no you don't

But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed?
Won't you tell me the thoughts that surround you?
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

You're in between twenty and thirty
That's a very desirable age
Your body is firm and inviting
But you live on a glittering stage, yes you do, yes you do

Your name is heard in high places
You know the Aga Khan
He sent you a race horse for Christmas
And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh, ha-ha-ha

They say that when you get married
It'll be to a millionaire
But they don't realize where you came from
And I wonder if they really care, or give a damn

But where do you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed?
Tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes I do

I remember the back streets of Naples:
Two children begging in rags
Both touched with a burning ambition
To shake off their lowly-born tags, they tried

So look into my face, Marie-Claire
And remember just who you are
Then go and forget me forever
But I know you still bear the scar, deep inside

I know where you go to my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
I know the thoughts that surround you
Cause I can look inside your head

Reads just like a Judith Krantz novel. Used to love her novels, never liked the song.

Ha!

You're just trying to wriggle out of this because you can't explain can you? Come on, try me.

Having read the lyrics above, I am not seeing the condescending to women or sexist bits.

To a teenager growing up in a grey industrial English town, this song was incredibly glamorous, although I didn't know who any of the people mentioned were, or could accurately place Juan-les-pins on a map. Marie Claire made it from the back streets of Naples to the Sorbonne, so aspirational too!

Only a pseudo-femininist looking to find offence could find a problem with that song IMO, the sort that can always find something 'offensive' with men or whatever they do.
She wasn't at the Women Aloud band night at the Hope & Anchor a few weeks ago was she ? The one where two guys were thrown out by the 'feminist' organiser (well, by a bouncer at her instruction, actually) for standing at the front of the crowd by the stage and 'blocking womens view in a misogynist way'. Even though they wore the bands t-shirts and were clearly ardent fans.
If so, I see her reasoning (but don't agree with it).
