Phil has been on pretty much every record ever. Including all the Agnostic Priest albums. :P

Agnostic Priest??? Over my head I'm afraid . . as in Judas?
Phil did session work I take it.
I was amazed to see how many and diverse artists - (had to look up Dana - she never had a hit in my neighborhood) - have covered this song.

Everyone's Gone to the Moon" is a song that was written and recorded as the debut single of the British singer-songwriter and record producer Jonathan King. The song was released in 1965 while King was still an undergraduate at Cambridge University.

Released by Decca Records, it reached No. 4 in the UK, and No. 17 in the US Billboard Hot 100. It has since been performed by other artists, including Marlene Dietrich, Chad & Jeremy, Doris Day, The Flaming Lips, Nina Simone, The Lettermen, Dana, Bobby Womack, Jan & Dean, and Percy Faith.

Many years ago, I had it on a tape with other songs I recorded from the radio. I wrote "Chad & Jeremy" on the paper insert, but it wasn't until recently that I learnt the version I've been listening to was by Jonathan King.

Agnostic Priest, just a joke about a non existing band. ;)

Got it, Sorta like my new Band 'Otherwise Blameless Life' it also doesn't exist - yet.
You probably would have to be on this side of the pond to get that one though. :roll:

Tomorrow starts out St. Patty's day marathon.
A private benefit Saturday night - 7 to 12 followed by Sunday (Duh!) where we play from 11AM to 11PM
The hits that we'll be playing - The Unicorn Song, 7 Old Ladies got stuck in the Lavatory, Donald Where's your Trousers, and countless drinking songs.
Then . . . . a week off - to start (for me) packing our house up. :?

Well, I survived.
While we had to play Seven Old Ladies once and The Unicorn song twice, it was a pleasure to play some Flogging Molly, Wolftones, and Lumineers.
Watching the youngins' dance was a trip and Saturday they had a group of young ladies do Irish step dancing and for the first time in years - they were good. :D

Somewhere they're was a saying, lets see, what was it . . . . "I've Got Blisters On My Fingers" :roll:

Seem to remember that one.... :mrgreen:

Glad your weekend went so well, Melvin.

Our gig was good, too - very appreciative audience.

Two things I noticed, though: they don't wave Bic lighters anymore but the flashlights of their mobile phones....

...and the ladies making eyes at you are most probably grandmas by now.... :lol: :lol: :lol: (where's the "roll on the floor" smilie?)
