As it is the lull before the next tranch of gigs, I figured that Aynsley is probably busy writing some new songs.

So I though It might help if we suggested a few song titles, lyrics or words.

Here’s my starter for 10

Song Titles:-

Kick those recession blues!!!

Bet you never heard these lyrics in a song before…..

This should include words such as Constantinople and orange ideally in the same sentence!!!

It should also include the words spaghetti bolognaise and Quantative Easing again ideally in the same sentence.

Any more challenges fellow forumees!!!

Okay….the caffeine hasn’t hit the right part of the brain yet, but here’s something. An equipment request has just landed on my desk, so in among your spaghetti, how about:-

“a phosphatase test and 2 microscopes”

Work that lot in and I hear an Ivor Novello award calling….....

How’s this for a title:-

The Newspaper Ate My Mobile (Now I’m Hacked Off)
or
Double Dip Recession Boogie

Mike

PS. I think cagoule is a very underused word…......

I like cagoule even though it obviously rhymes with fool.  Perhaps that’s not a coincidence!!!

Axel now that’s more tricky!!  Along with the famous wankle rotary engine.

There are loads in the periodic table of elements except that some bloke wrote a song that got all of them in at once.

How about The Euro slide if were getting political.

or more topically.

Moonbase Blues

Tom Lehrer’s your man for the elements song. There’s scope for a re-write as he only lists 102 elements that have been “reported to Harvard”. Since then there’s been another 16 “discovered” but three of four of them haven’t been imaginatively named. Latest names being Flerovium and Livermorium - why can’t we have them named after guitar heroes like Claptonium or Hendrixium?
Then there’s a problem with the tune; “The Major General’s Song from Pirates of Penzance”, but I’m sure Aynsley can pull a killer riff out his bag of tricks.

Mike

PS speaking of rhymes, that classic is “orange”, but often overlooked but just as tricky, “month”.

From recent tweets, I’m guessing that Aynsley has a broad pallet when it comes to music, but not sure if it includes folk music. Those of us of a “certain age” will remember that doyen of the folksy-air, Ramblin’ Syd Rumpo; here’s some of my favourite titles that he used to pull out his “gander-bag”:-

The Ballad of the Somerset Nog
Green Grow My Nadgers O!
The Ballad of the Woggler’s Moulie
The Taddle Gropers’ Dance
What Shall We Do With The Drunken Nurker
The Song Of The Bogle Clencher
‘Twas On The Good Ship Habakkuk
Clacton Bogle Picker’s Lament
Runcorn Splod Cobbler’s Song
Granny Went a-Wandering
Song Of The Australian Outlaw
The Black Grunger of Hounslow
Gladys Is At It Again
The Grommet Tinker’s Song
My Grussett Lies a Fallowing-oh
Bind my Plooms with Silage
The Russet-banger Ditty
The Lung-Wormer’s Gavotte
Good King Boroslav

They don’t write ‘em like that anymore…....and hopefully, neither will Aynsley…..

Well, it’s that tour break time, and Aynsley’s still hard at it in the studio; just wonder if he could do with a little inspiration for that odd song to round off the album.

Here’s a couple of suggestions, on a road theme:-

Do You Know The Way To St. Neots?
24 Hours From Telford
Walthamstow Line Man
I Left My Heart In St. Austel
From Ruislip, With Love
Grangetown On My Mind

Anyone anymore?
