The Bucking-ham Beat

Because it's such a lovely day, not one you want to be spending in an office but one where you want to be tripping down Carnaby Street doing a spot of shopping in groovy boutiques and breaking for a spot of al fresco luncheon before dancing in formation around the fountains in Hyde Park, roaring off in a beach buggy for drinks on a penthouse terrace then hitting a psychedelic club in your fab new gear, here's Des O'Connor with his shameless 1969 Swinging Sixties cash-in Dick-A-Dum-Dum (King's Road).

Still, there's something about it that's eternally optimistic and quite sunny. Enjoy.

Actually I didn't know that, OP, but I can absolutely imagine it. I can hear it in my mind's eye.

What you've described sounds like the worst day of my life. I'd rather be facing off against thousands of Zulus at Isandlwana than do all that rubbish '60s guff. And that would have meant certain death for Joe Muggins 'ere.

Here's a couple more tunes for today FC

Alan Hawkshaw - Girl In A Sports Car

Keith Mansfield - Young Scene

Yes, I always thought they summed up that feeling rather well, PM.

And BPP, I think we are polar opposites. But that's good.

Des never did have a top lip, did he?
