New Mood on Monday

Monday’s are horrendous at the best of times, never more so than at the start of the year (in my book).

Yes, it’s the start of another new year, and yes, I know I’m supposed to be attacking it with renewed passion and vigour, but give me the choice between that and an extra half hour in bed, and I know which one I’d choose, no question.

So to combat that, the return of the series where I post songs it’s impossible to sleep through, a record which unlike 99% of the stuff I post here, I genuinely own a copy of on 7″ single:

Dennis Waterman – I Could Be So Good For You

And as if that’s not enough, here’s the wonderful(ly naff) and clearly very expensively shot (ahem) video, with heart throb Waterman “entertaining” visitors to a fruit and veg stall:

Now put some trousers on and get to work, you lazy feckers.

(More soon).

      1. I know, bless him. A bit like Craig David and Bo Selecta, only at least Dennis was good enough to appear with the Little Britain pair once (in a Comic Relief sketch, I think)

  1. Not such a fan of Dennis Waterman as a kid, to be honest, and less so with his reported comments a few years back on women in general and admission-cum-justification of domestic violence (towards ex-wife Rula Lenska).

    I’ll admit that the 2009 remake of Minder with Shane Richie was worse than the original, but that’s about it….!

    1. Gosh, I’d forgotten about that reboot, which was just dreadful. Hadn’t heard those comments either, to be honest, or I’d have thought twice about posting this…

      1. Charity Chic posted a couple of EPs by Attic Lights the other week, which reminded me that the only song I had by them was their cover of I Could Be So Good For You, used as the theme to Minder reboot. At least Shane Ritchie didn’t insist on doing it himself…!

        I’m not sure there’s a simple answer regarding what to post or not to post. Separating the music (& TV series) from the person, it’s a catchy tune and a reminder of an enjoyably naff TV show from childhood… and I can definitely relate to the Monday morning feeling that you brilliantly described!

  2. I don’t know if you ever saw late the late 90s show about a taxi firm, Roger, Roger. This gloriously featured in a funeral scene where the widow had requested “the theme from The Bodyguard” as the exit music.
