Thank Flor it’s Friday.
As Storm Eunice abates and the nation crawls out from behind the sofa, dusts itself down and straightens its tie, it’s time to celebrate with more voucherless music argy-bargy.
This week the theme comes courtesy of regular reader Liam Deliverance who asks: What’s your favourite moment of musical psychedelia?
Please include video links if possible.
Lines close on Saturday at Midnight.

Last week I asked you for your favourite karaoke song, after a suggestion by Millie.
Millie herself and Janet both won my esteem with their choices:
Maria McKee – Show Me Heaven
“This song comes attached to a very emotionally difficult moment from my childhood, so much so that for a long time I would cry uncontrollably when I heard it. So to deal with this, I learned the words and taught myself to sing it. To this day, it remains my karaoke song and I only sometimes shed a tear. Never underestimate how grief can affect you, even after 20 years have passed.”
Alain Baschung – La nuit je mens
So mucky it’s age restricted!
Janet, dreams of an alternate universe wrote:
“One for that nostalgic rose-tinted glasses time of the night….you know the time, my rendition of La Nuit Je Mens fills me with delightful agony; others just agony probably ;) the best part is it’s that talky singing the French do best!”
Nick says: Well done, Millie and Janet and thanks all.
