TWO FOR THE MONEY - Led Zeppelin - Your Time Is Gonna Come/D'Yer Ma'ker


can you smell the flavours?


LED ZEPPELIN - Your Time is Gonna Come

It is my 3rd week on vacation in Thailand with Shell Hunter and London Scouser. I am a big fan of the place and have been probably about 10 times over the past 30 years. When I worked in Saudi Arabia during the eighties we used to go quite often go for a spot of R&R. In these days I could write my own tickets with Saudia Arabian Airlines. 'These were the Days my friend'. And as Mary Hopkins said.. 'I wish I stayed in the fookin' valleys!'

I first heard Led Zeppelin on an Atlantic Sampler  from 1970,  what a brilliant album that was, check it out.

Your time is Gonna Come is from their first album and has always been a favourites of mine. The second track from Houses of the Holy and is a nice little bit of Reggae-ish. Not their finest hour, but what the 'ell I'm on holiday and  I like it.

LED ZEPPLIN - D'Yer Ma'ker 


On Holiday, On Holiday My arse! see previous Posts. 

Never mind it has not been all bad, the weather has been in the twenties with blue skies.  We had a nice meal by the sea last week. I should have not had that third brandy, I should not have stopped of at that new bar on the way home! I should not have gone to Pat's Bar!

Waking up the next morning was one of 'those',  Oh God! what happened, did I upset Old Ma, did I kill anybody, how did I get home?.

I can't take my drink anymore. Normally I do not drink much these days but when I do get the opportunity I tend to go for it. I really should know better. I did find a Pop Corn wrapper, so I must have given a large bowl a hammering as there was little evidence left apart from a few kernels that did not pop. But I don't like Pop Corn!

I had the hungers all bloody day and still felt a bit off the day after. So the moral of the story is, if you can't handle your Pop Corn, then stay out of Pat's Bar! 

A final Footnote next week

I love that: "But I don't like Pop Corn" :-)

At least if a pop corn wrapper and few kernels is the only evidence of your drunken night out, you can't have done anything tooooo bad...

Brilliant. I've done some funny things after a drink or two, but I'm not sure that I've ever been that drunk that I've eaten something I don't actually like! You should try popcorn again when you're sober - you might have developed a taste for it!

Take it easy, OP! can't take the booze myself these days, either. Funny how that happens. I know if I have two I'll have three and then it's anybody's guess. Yep, done some crazy things but I hope those days are over. Who the hell likes pop corn, anyway? Great choices even if 'D'Yer Ma'ker' does walk a very close line to 'so bad it's good'.
