On The Move

Hello there!

Just a quick one to say g'day and let you know I am moving house this week. 

Change of Internet and phone provider means our new home won't have the Internet
 and phone installed for a week or so. (Say what now?! No Internet?!!)

Until then, I will collect a trailer load of freaky folk to present to you in a Freaky Friday very soon.

I hope you are all happy and well.

Many thanks to Ray Cunningham for allowing me to use this original photograph he took in 1972.
I love it - one of my new faves.

Freaky Friday - Retro Album Covers in The Great Outdoors

After the Comb Over carnage from last week, I thought we'd take a walk through nature.
All you need is some fresh air and a song in your heart.

 There he is! That's him.
Norman Ray - the man with the plan.

 I think Chuck took a wrong turn on the way to the
speed dating luncheon.
(Please take your hand out of your pocket Chuck.)

 I've gotta say Jim, it's all abit low energy.
I mean come on - you're riding for Jesus!!

 Translation - "Chuck! Where are you Chuck? Chuck!!"

Jerry knows what the ladies like.

Raymond's motto was simple - Love me, love my harp.
He didn't make it to the speed dating luncheon either.
Perhaps he could give Chuck a lift back to his car.

Happy Friday!

Who Loves You - Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons 1975

Obsessed with this song this week, and indeed anything related to the
"Jersey Boys" and Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons at present.

I saw the musical "Jersey Boys" a few years back, and the movie twice over the last few weeks.
Once I made peace with the film being quite different to the musical, and the songs not
translating off the screen as well as they do in live theatre, I really enjoyed the movie.

Unfortunately, you don't get to hear much of the song in the film. 
Perhaps because the film is based on the original Four Seasons, and "Who Loves You"
wasn't released until 1975 when Frankie Valli was the only original member still performing. 
Although, original Four Seasons band member Bob Gaudio continued to write
and produce songs for the Four Seasons including "Who Loves You" and
"December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" and Frankie Valli's solo career.

Who Loves You - 1975

Who Loves You - 2014 Jersey Boys Movie version

It's the 1970's version for me. Great tune!!

 (Found this meme online and new instantly it had to be my opening pic)

Here we are! The Comb Over special.

 The Wrap.

Count Comb Over - "You vant to touch it, yes?"

This comb over goes out to Kylie of Lucy Violet Vintage who
