Sunday Morning Music


It's Sunday morning, but by some minor miracle my back let me sleep later than usual (I normally wake up in the small hours of the morning).  I'm not fully awake yet;  so what better time to give you a song or two about waking up?

Let's start with possibly the most famous Goon Show dialog of all time.  Eccles and Bluebottle are in "the ground floor attic of a nearby clock repairers", and have this conversation.





When you've stopped laughing, here's an Irish song about waking up.





I reckon that'll do it for this morning!

Some years ago, I introduced someone to the Goon Show, and that clip, specifically. I found out about a year later that his son and a friend had performed it in their middle school talent show.

I used to have several Goon Show LPs. A fun show - my introduction to it was watching the TeleGoons after school when I was a boy in England.

Never mind, heh. Off-topic, etc. :-)

I never understood why the traditional retirement gift was a watch. After years of having to be at class, work meetings, etc on time, why would I want a new watch I don't need it anymore.
