…who would you be? Would you be the lead singer, the lead guitarist, the bass player or the drummer? Perhaps you would be a fancy sax blower, or a dancer like Bez (or perhaps a better dancer than Bez) or a keyboard player?
I am somehow of the opinion I would make a really good drummer. How have I come to this conclusion? It is because I tap with rhythm, I have decided. Just look at me keep time with Simple Minds as I tap my nails on my mouse (computer that is, not uninvited furry guests banqueting downstairs). Don’t You (tap-tap-tap) Forget About Me (tap-tap-tap-tappity-tap).
I am dang good at this. I am sure I would be equally good with drumsticks in hand and a loud noisy thing to whack repeatedly.
Or perhaps I would be the moody guitarist? Not the lead guitarist, as that would mean replacing the pads of my fingers with concrete reinforced slabs. But perhaps I would be the bass player and stand at the back and stare through my hair beyond the stage. I obviously wouldn’t be a star bass player like Mark King (Level 42) – I’d be more like Stuart Sutcliffe (The Beatles, once upon a time). Arty looking on the stage, and yet has to turn away a little to play the fiddly bits.
Or maybe I’d just leap around aka Pans People? I could do that. I have the hair for things like that – free-range, and non-conformist, in the fact it hates straighteners. I could easily prance and leap and interpret songs literally – I am just listening to Squeeze’s ‘Labelled with Love’ – oh yes, this would be easy – ‘winds up the clock and sweeps dust from the shelf’ – see me go! You can picture the routine already I am sure.
So what would you be? And… to do my little bit for Comic Relief - I am putting my real photo on Twitter and above just for today only. I am sponsoring myself to be brave and keep it on my blog / Twitter, and will donate a pound for every hour I leave it there. I know it’s only a pound, but I am truly skint so… pound it is. Will reveal grand total next time I post! Could be a whole 24 quid – gosh, what riches.
If you don't have your picture on your blog, why don't you do the same? *grins*
