This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Polo breath mints. People like Polo!
Wikipedia tells us “Polo Mints is a brand of breath mint whose defining feature is the hole in the middle.” We have Life Savers in the US (which I think are also available in the UK) that have a hole in the middle.
Another week of being inside cowering from Covid-19. All the action has been on my blog. Which is OK, for now, anyway. So let’s revisit the week.
- Sunday: Junior Wells, “Help Me”
- Monday: Fanny, “Blind Alley”
- Tuesday: Donovan, “Sunshine Superman”
- Wednesday: Eric Burdon & War, “Spill The Wine”
- Thursday: Monica Rocha, “The One Who Really Loves You”
- Friday: The Spinners, “I’ll Be Around”
- Saturday: The O’Jays, “Back Stabbers”
Another freebie day, so I played YouTube Wheel of Fortune again, and came up with a great set, if I say so myself.
A little over half of the questions had a Harry Potter theme, which wasn’t that hard for me to bluff through (I’ve read the books and seen a couple of the movies). The other three questions were typical SYW fare, so I had no trouble with those.
We went back to Easton, Pennsylvania and radio station WEEX, where we examined their Top 10 from 1979.
My contribution this week was a really bad pun I found on Lamebook.
The prompt was “damage,” and my essay was about the lack of damage to our house we’ve had to cope with due to severe weather, and the ways we keep ourselves informed about severe weather in the area.
The Yacht Rock series continued with England Dan and John Ford Coley as the featured artists.
Linda’s prompt was to write a pro and con list about anything, and I wrote it about writing pro and con lists.
We just started a new Battle this Saturday and the songs are all named “On The Beach” but they’re all different. If you haven’t already, stop by and cast your vote. I’ll announce the winner this coming Saturday, so please get your votes to me by then.
This week will be a lot like last week. No surprise there, is there? But I may shake things up a little.
