Anti-Woo

Valentine's Day, also known as Biggest Disappointment Ever Day. Altho' I am sure there are people for whom every day is Valentine's Day (quick, pass me a bucket...) I thought that I would pay tribute to the Anti-Woo today. Our radio stations are making me ill with their lovey dovey music selections, the rose pimps are all out in force so here are some of my selections for my radio station if I had one, in no particular order:-


Boom Boom Out Go the Lights - this would have to be one of the least romantic and certainly "un-pc" songs ever. I like it. In fact, as a bit of useless knowledge and a boring fact our Scowly Teen LOVED this as a baby when she was in her Jolly Jumper.


Dump That Chump - again, this group never fails to get their sassy messages across. Self explanatory I think for this one.



The richest man in the graveyard - I have several CDs by this group - can you tell?



And Eartha Kitt is a must have for the anti-woo list. Well, ok maybe I just like this song...





So the wrap up my list, how about this one from the J. Geils band. I'm sure I have missed heaps, so what would you have on your list of Anti-Woo?

There's a chain of stores in the UK selling Valentine cards BOGOF (Buy one get one free) - just to be on the safe side.

I love a woman with such taste! My valentine's on its way to you as I type.

Yours

hi saj! Love that "Richest Man in the Graveyard!" Could enjoy listening to that sipping a champagne cocktail.
Let's see, what made my anti-woo list over the past year? I'll go with "Breakeven" by the Irish group The Script (Mark Sheehan and Danny O'Donoghue): "'Cause when a heart breaks, it don't break even."
Here's to our chilled champagne cocktails with a maraschino cherry... Love, me ♥

It was this the first year that I did receive a card upon this day. After three and a half decades breathing.

Please have a good new week you all.

I quite like the "I hate you" song from The Wedding Singer...

Keith said...

This is brilliant. Top post. I laughed my head off. Which is fine 'cos I don't need it for anything else today.

Oh and the verification word was EMILIQUE. Which is a beautiful word, don't you think ?

Fabulous! I shall look forward to listening to them later when on a laptop with speakers.

Here's another for your anti-woo collection.

Tenon-What a money spinner!

Marginalia-Spank you!

Margaret-hey! How are you, long time no see. That song actually reminds me of my ex...thanks for the champers! :-)

Robert-oh, well done! Maybe its the start of something wonderful.

Steve- Good choice, and very versatile!

Keith - glad to help, hope you found somewhere to stash your hat for the day then!

Poet-Thought you might like it!

Joey- brilliant, hadn't even heard of that guy before so thanks!

John Entwistle was the bass player from The Who.

And probably the greatest bass guitarist EVER!

The Sagittarian said...

Oh dear, how embarrassing to not know that!

Well, it's the day my wife and I got married. Thirty five years ago.

....one thing....I've never forgotten an anniversary.
