It was twenty years ago today,
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile.
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all these years,
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,
We hope you will enjoy the show,
We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,
Sit back and let the evening go.
Sgt. Pepper's lonely, Sgt. Pepper's lonely,
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

It's wonderful to be here,
It's certainly a thrill.
You're such a lovely audience,
We'd like to take you home with us,
We'd love to take you home.

I don't really want to stop the show,
But I thought that you might like to know,
That the singer's going to sing a song,
And he wants you all to sing along.
So let me introduce to you
The one and only Billy Shears
And Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
..
LENNON/McCARTNEY

Twenty years ago today, Yazz and the Plastic Population were number one with "The Only Way Is Up".

(Which is nice...)

And Tanita Tikaram was having her fifteen minutes:

"There's a good tradition of love and hate staying by the fireside
And though the rain may fall,
your father's calling you
You still feel safe inside.
And though your ma's too proud , your brother's ignoring you
You still feel safe inside.

Was this solo?
Was this yesterday?
Was this true for you?
'Cos all the choices you have made
Didn't do a lot for you."

I'll get me coat...

I, like the view said...

no, don't go, please stay

or stand outside with me while I have a sneaky fag (you'll need your coat for that, it's nippy)

I rather liked the Thirteen Senses.

But--I'll go with Lennon and McCartny for tonight.
Kinda need that upbeat rythm, yaknow.

Besides, it's nippy here as well.....and I don't have my coat up from storage yet.
Guessin' that means I wrap myself in a quilt to swing all cozy.
