Copying River, here is my effort for Musical Monday but it is a double bunger.
Scott has had a few different blogs over the years. His latest, Edwardian House Renovation has been very interesting to follow, as he detailed the progress of he and his partner's renovation of their three storey Edwardian house in the English town of Leicester. What a challenging undertaking and what a success. Scott even extensively researched the houses' history. When they first moved to England from the Melbourne suburb of Murrumbeena, it was to Liverpool, where they also renovated a house. Any time Scott mentioned the river running through Liverpool, I thought of a certain song. Can you guess?
Also when I see the Spirit of Tasmania sailing across the bay from our balcony, I think of the same song although our bay is hardly a river. Ferry, cross Port Phillip Bay......doesn't really work, does it. This clip has some really nice stills of I assume Liverpool. Ferry, cross the Mersey by Gerry and the Pacemakers, 1964.
Sometimes when I am in a certain mood I think of another ferry song. Don't Pay the Ferryman, Chris de Burgh, 1982.
Of the former, I know one line, Ferry cross the Mersey. Of the latter, only two, Who pays the ferryman. Just get me to the other side.
