On Sunday we drove up to Ballachullsh for an overnight a Christmas present from my brother and sister-in-law.
The weather was pretty stunning for this time of year and the views were pretty spectacular as you will see if you click on this link of us driving through Glencoe with Carly Simon
Apologies that my technical limitations don't allow a simple press play.
The weather on Monday was pretty reasonable and we drove home via Oban and Lochgilphead where there were some charity shop purchases.
Carly Simon - My One and Only Love
Carly Simon - You're So Vain
And for Brian
Carly Simon - In the Still of the Night
I seem to remember you got a similar Christmas present last year which led to a trip away and some CC Shop purchases.ReplyDelete
Love your Road Movie complete with soundtrack! It has been really cold this week so far but because of the clear skies there has been some stunning scenery - Snow on the Ben up with us, but beautiful.
Great song choices today.
I was hoping to hear your flat weegie singing voice as part of the soundtrack.ReplyDelete
George is so rude sometimes! I'm guessing you guys go back a long way.ReplyDelete
And he has heard my singing before - marginally better than his!
Ha ha - TouchéDelete
Maybe we should let your readers decide.....Delete
Alyson, that's me being complimentary to CCDelete
You're driving on the wrong side of the road, my dear boy! Looks like such a lovely drive. Sounds like you're listening to In the Still of the Night. Who was singing that version? I'm partial to Julie London myself. Looking forward to hearing what you found on the trip. Always a good time.ReplyDelete
Now added Brian!Delete
Thanks for that, CC. I didn't quite make out it was Carly before. Such a good song. Big fan of Cole Porter tunes.Delete
Looks like I posted the wrong song from Moonlight Serenade
I've had a shit day. That clip is the best thing I've seen today. Thank you.ReplyDelete
This is a great new idea for bloggers - Music and scenery whilst we drive! Just got the annual service/MOT done today so I’m good to go!ReplyDelete
Excellent clip. Great driving music.ReplyDelete
BBC 4 re-ran a Classic Albums documentary on Carly Simon tonight (I missed the original) but my wife thought it better we watch Requiem. Doh! I'll have to resort to BBCiPlayer (again) I suppose ha haReplyDelete
