One of the things I’m “good” at is almost involuntarily finding connections between disperate things. Say, between whatever’s happening or being talked about and a certain Scottish movie. I’m sure it can be confusing to some folks. Or annoying.
But that’s a bit what happened here:
I connected two songs with “Sunny Side” in their titles to form something of a medley--though only one of the songs is sung in its entirety.
This performance was for a Food Pantry benefit; I suppose I figured that the “little kids without no shoes” was the tie that binds. . . .
There are times I’ve thought the Shane MacGowan-fronted Pogues were the best band ever. But that honor truly belongs to Clifton Chenier and his zydeco band. Or the Japan Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Akeo Watanabe.
What? The Scottish movie? Local Hero, a Bill Forsyth film from 1983.
