TUESDAY BLUES!! The Smiths - Asleep

Do you like Singer/Songwriters (or grumpy bands), or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!

The Smiths - Asleep
My wife & I recently watched The Perks of Being A Wallflower, but before you get scared off at another coming of age film, this one is very good! It also has a wonderful soundtrack which was put together by Alexandra Patsavas, whose soundtrack/music supervision input has been on over 60 films & TV series.  Apart from job envy, the use of the Smiths 'Asleep' in Wallflower encouraged me to listen again to the genius of Manchesters finest.

Asleep also reminded me of the lack of sleep that I got when I first met my wife.  But before you start thinking about 50 shades of grey, I am referring to the lack of sleep due to my wifes dog.  When we first met, she said she had a dog but said it didn't sleep in the bedroom.  However when I first started staying at her house, the dog would cry all night outside the door.  At first I thought it was trying to protect her from my advances.  However, the whining was constant and intolerable.  It was like having a unhappy new born baby crying for attention and after 2-3 hours of 'ignoring' the pooch, she ended up locking the dog in the car! The next evening it was the same, but this time we gave in and the dog jumped on the bed and it immediately lay in-between us.  If I tried to get a little amorous the dog would growl to discourage me.  After a couple of days, the missus came clean, the dog clearly stayed on the bed with her and I'd have to deal with it! Seven years later, the dog still sleeps on the bed but thankfully I've been promoted to Master of the house and so the growls are slightly less!
