Magic Again



Perhaps I should have quit on Friday and left that Donna Summer picture at the top of the page forever, hanging in cyberspace as a talisman (taliswoman?) for all future visitors, a Moroderesque rune for those who come later, speaking the lost and lovely language 'disco' ?

And yet we must move on I suppose. Still, I haven't been able to post Teenage Fanclub's 'December' as I had planned because that would have meant following La Summer with a pic of some scrawny lank-haired Glaswegians and I'm sorry, I just couldn't do it.

Here's some Kate then. A seasonal single nobody bought!

Happy Advent!

Kate Bush - 'December Will Be Magic Again' (1980)

    Barely recall this song. Well remembered Davy old lad.

    Bushy bird at her barking best with lovely bells and castanets!

  4. I think I'm right in saying that Kate wrote this after hearing the news that The Paul Daniels Magic Show had just been recommissioned by the BBC and was due to start in early December. Proper chuffed she were.

    This was the cover of a book that came out in the late 70s, a sword and sorcery thing. Look familiar?

  12. Did we like Pamela Stephenson or was she very annoying? I'm not sure.

    Dick, we all know that's you in the mac.

  13. That clip is a but annoying but I used to fancy her. I remember particularly liking this as a young lad with raging hormones.

    ..and I believe Dick is innocent. Justice for the Yorkshire one!
