A Pinch And A Punch


Happy October 1.

Last week, with a Golden Discs voucher worth TWENTY FIVE EURO on offer, I asked you to name your favourite song mentioning specific months of the year.

You answered in your tens.

But there could be only one winner.

Third Place:

Galaxie 5004th of July

“I wrote a poem on a dog biscuit”… Probably the only time I’ve known the canine comestible mentioned in popular culture. The song takes me back to the autumn of 1990 when the song was released, and a move from Dublin to London via Edinburgh. Buying the CD single and the album it’s from (“This Is Our Music”) in the original Fopp record shop on Cockburn Street in Edinburgh. That beautiful hilly winding street, still a favourite to this day, and the biting cold of northern Britain….


Simon and GarfunkelI Am A Rock

The opening line “A winter’s day, in a deep and dark December”. A song that struck a chord with my teenage angst when I first heard it – it’s just one of those classic ‘soundtrack to your life’ type songs that I’m sure generation after generation rediscover…

‘Here she comes
Silent in her sound
Here she comes
Fresh upon the ground
Come gentle spring
Come at winter’s end
Gone is the pallor from a promise that’s nature’s gift
Waiting for the color of spring
Let me breathe
Let me breathe the color of spring
Here she comes
Laughter in her kiss
Here she comes
Shame upon her lips
Come wanton spring
Come for birth you live
Youth takes it’s bow before the summer the seasons bring
Waiting for the color of spring
Let me
Let me breathe
Let me breathe you’

Thanks all.

    Good choices all, and well done to Specific Gravity!

    Nick,I just want to say that I do enjoy these competitions, even if I cannot enter. I get reminded of songs that are old friends, and very often introduced to ones I have not came across before.

    Thank you!
