Everyday Is Like Sunday

I'm knackered. It's been a very busy week and a very busy weekend.

Friday I caught up with Prince at the 02 Arena. Very possibly the gig of the year so far. Though the Pet Shop Boys at Hammersmith, and Roger Waters have given him a run for his money. For two and a half hours, Prince preened and funked his immaculate and unstoppable brand in a set that made clear that he truly he a deserved legend. (There's a setlist here, for those you who follow such things). But if I say to you that about the only big songs he didn't do were "Glam Slam" and "Batdance", you'd be pleased. He did everything you'd want to hear : Cream, U Got The Look, Diamonds + Pearls, Little Red Corvette, I Would Die 4 U, Purple Rain, Take Me With You, Guitar, Kiss, Let's Go Crazy, 1999, Nothing Compares 2 U, Sign O The Times, When Doves Cry, Alphabet St, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, Raspberry Beret...

After arriving in Peterborough at 1am, i was straight to bed, then up at 8, for the 9.29, on the train to Nottingham, then change and to a wedding. More on that later.

Stefan took the picture of me singing Just Can't Get Enough, , with X trying to stop me singing. Love his little cotton sockies. E thought I was very loud. Someone else told me I was the best of the karaokeists. What did YOU think? (if you were there)

This morning, woken about 8am by a boy. Then we drove 186 miles. A very long day. I'm exhausted, and can barely do more than practice my Vietnam 1,000 yard stare into the distance in mute catatonia. More later.

well, I thought you were *amongst* the best singers on the night, anyway.....

You were a lot better than Sheppy and I! ;-)
