Thank Fabio it’s Friday.
Another week. Another music competition. An oasis of calm in a world gone frankly hatstand. You are most welcome.
I’ve still no voucher to offer but I intend to lay the esteem on pretty heavily next week to the winner. I want to know what is the song you find easiest to dance to and why.
Please include a video link where possible.
Nick says: Good luck!
Lines Must close on Saturday at Midday.

Duke Special – The Ice Cream Man
Last week, I asked for your favourite song that included trees or leaves in some manner.
Fergalito‘s entry, while skirting the rules, won my considerable esteem:
‘Not trees or leaves but all kinds of flora found in the Burren. This is a collaboration between the Belfast poet Michael Longley and Duke Special based on Longley’s poem “The Ice Cream Man” – it’s incredibly moving in my opinion, Longley wrote the poem about a man who had an ice cream shop in Belfast and was killed in the troubles. He wrote the poem for him and in this collaboration reads out a letter he received from the man’s Mother – a most treasured possession of the poet.’
Nick says: Well done Fergalito and thanks all.
Last week: Win Nick’s Esteem
