And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say yourself, “My God! What have I done?

Taken from the hugely unique Once in a Lifetime song by Talking Heads, from their fourth studio album Remain in Light (1980). Though it didn’t even make the Top 10 in any major national market, the “half-spoken, half-sung” song and its video became hugely memorable.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

Taken from the album title track Mr Tamborine Man by The Byrds (1965), a cover from a Bob Dylan original. Quite surprisingly, it was actually released the same year as Dylan’s, and both were hugely successful. You can find this and other memorable cover songs here and my favourite Dylan songs here and here.

Gr8at: One Liners

As you’ll know from my many references to sitcoms and funny posts like my one liners and story jokes ones, I do love a skilfully executed joke. It’s such a great feeling when something really makes you laugh. Here are the ones that really did it for me recently. Feel free to let me know which made you chuckle the most or check out plenty more here.

But he that dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose

Taken from the poem The Narrow Way by Anne Brontë (1820 – 1849), who died at the tragically early age of 29 from illness. Anne, whose writings included the novels Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, is also known for being the youngest member of the literary Brontë family.

Film Quizzes: Stylish and Iconic Female Outfits

I was on Art Gowns’ latest post and as usual, was blown away by her talent. On the comments section we discussed how I had done many film quizzes, but none as yet on fashion. So remedying that is my latest quiz which celebrates the beauty and originality of female outfits over the decades. As these looks are so timeless, it felt wrong to chronicle them, so the order is random. How many of the films they’re from can you get? Which grabs your attention the most?
