Goodbye by Emmylou Harris

As the last chords fade, it’s time to pick a winner of the last music competition.

I loved all your entries, and cannot abandon any of my children, so it’s seems fitting to say you all won my esteem! (With a special mention to Giggidy Goo and Cu Chulainn for previous oversights.)

And yet…

… who could resist Slightly Bemused‘s choice of Abba’s Thank you for The Music to celebrate our Waterloo? Except perhaps Janet (sorry!).

Thank you all so much for making this weekly warm-down such a hoot.

I’ll leave you with a couple of my own farewell choices: So This Is Goodbye by Stina Nordenstam and, playing above, Goodbye by Emmylou Harris.

That’s all folks!

*sobs uncontrollably in the corner*

    Here’s a pint of jersey full cream on me, thanks indeed for the music.

    There were so many comments on Friday I missed Slightly Bemused’s earlier post and apparently doubled up on the ABBA offering …but seriously who could live without them, I ask in all honesty, what would life be…

    I hope I’ve gained your esteem too Nick. The milky bars are on me!

    1. Slightly Bemused

      No worries, Triona. I snuck it in as a reply to Janet’s first. Well, actually I was warning her I would, given her known anti-penchant for that band. Andy pipped me, so I gave the all clear :-)

      I think all deserve the kudos

    G’man Slightly, a very apt choice and winner of the last comp…

      Well Clamps.

      You were my first pal, here on the sheet. I don’t know if you know that, but you were, and you were universally kind – til Nige showed up, but sure we all have our burdens ;)

      Another true gentleman, you are, and nothing made me happier when you shared your successes and good news here. I always felt, if ever someone deserved their little slice of happiness here, it was you.

      Lots of love, and a kiss to the wee lad.

      1. Clampers Outside

        Awww Millie, I didn’t know that ( nor will I let on to Bertie :) ).
        And thank you for the kind words on the trajectory change my life took. Without being religious, I feel ‘blessed’ all the same, and grateful for the positivity in my life today – simply reading what you’ve written here being another part of that bigger picture, thank you :)

        And to you Millie, your wee bairn, and all the other parts of your life I know nothing of… I wish you and it all well :)
        * BIG hugs *

    1. Cú Chulainn

      Same here Nick.. I know I have different music tastes.. but, anybody could be that guy…

          1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

            I’M A DANCING QUEEN
            STRONG AND LEAN…. TAMBOURINE !

            and I’ll have you know that was pitch perfect, talk about taking one for the team

          2. Cú Chulainn

            You’re a teaser, you turn ’em on
            Leave ’em burning and then you’re gone…

            I cannot think of a better way to sign off BS… there is nothing to compare…

  4. Slightly Bemused

    Thanks, Nick, and everyone for the many enjoyable weekends I had listening to them all

    Be good to yourselves, all, and raise a parting glass.

  5. Andy Pipkin

    Thanks Nick!
    And thanks everyone, see you all soon in the Broadsheet Inn soon.

    Take care of each other and remember, It’s Nice Too Be Nice!

      See you Andy! The lad with all the tunes, you. I still have that playlist you made saved on Spotify, and it’s one of my faves.

      At the risk of sounding like a cliché, thank you for the music. And the good humour and kindness.

      All the best pal :)

          1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

            fades to black….
            I gotta go put the monkey to bed
            Bye bye

    I posted this a few days ago but I imagine it would have understandably gotten lost among the multitude of farewells.
    It’s always nice to bump into fellow fans of Withnail & I and I loved it when a little nudge got a response on here. So, please enjoy one of the finest finales to a movie ever written:
