What made me smile this week was a cover of Dutch song Geef mij maar nasi goreng (the life song of my late father) by Indonesian krontjong band Orkes Sinten Remen. For me the summer hit of 2017! I've immediately ordered the CD in Indonesia. The clip in on YouTube: www.youtube.com...

My first thought when Sheila said "a very prominent curse" wasn't a swear word; rather, it was "may your ____ freeze and fall off" (from Pretty In Pink) or some such. That apparently means that I really overuse those other words as I don't even think of them as cursing. :)

What had surprised me most about "What Is Love", that it comes from a Cologne Schlager Producer, known under his Beat era hero alias Tony Hendrik (of The Tony Hendrik Five, who produced one really awesome Small Faces psychedelic era styled single in 1967 : Said My Say").
