Out at smoky-drinky this evening, so here’s a quickie.
Frank Davis has a post about tobacco control and points out that there can be no middle ground. Either it all goes or it all stays. No compromise. Win or lose. All or nothing.
The Small Faces wrote us smokers a theme tune fifty years ago. The opening lines could have been written by any smoker attempting a compromise with antismokers –
‘I thought you’d listen to my reasoning.
But now I see you don’t hear a thing.’
The song has been covered by many bands since, but the song remains the same (no I’m not linking to that one too). This recording is bad but the sound is OK.
I’m off to smoky-drinky and will be humming this on the way. If the video embed fails (again), try this link.
