    I always liked this version…

    Too much.

    Although I feel this is sacrilegious to my main man Thom, this in a similar vein.

  • Isabel Hitchings,

    Were we to ever get married there would be this:

    and maybe this:

    And then, because maybe it shouldn't be all Bowie all the time we could have:

    I suspect my darling would, however, prefer discreet jazz and nothing that encouraged dancing which may be why we continue to live without benefit of wedlock (as my uncle once described how we were raising our kids).

  • Chris Waugh,

    Does anybody else remember that Life Begins at 40 song that Lindsay Yeo used to play on 2ZB's birthday calls for those turning 40? Is there a 50 equivalent?

    ETA: I've been doing this job too long... even on a summer holiday I can't switch off the impulse to correct grammar, especially my own.

    Just type in "Life Begins At Forty " in google and you get the whole monstrosity!
    Nothing for 50-oids...

  • Chris Waugh, in reply to Islander,

    erm.... well, your choice of words is more than enough to explain why I didn't google it... I'd rather just leave it in Wellington in the 80s. I may well be glad there's no equivalent for the 50s.

  • JacksonP,

    Crikey, that was quick. Over half a dozen remixes on Soundcloud already. Haven't really had the chance to grade them in any way, but this seemed to work.

  • Jackie Clark,

    <sigh> Sometimes I wonder how some of us are even friends with each other. And then I remember that NO-ONE in my life likes the same music that I do. How is that even possible? Except for Donna Summer. Everyone likes Donna Summer.

  • Dean Papa,

    if you don't want to be a precious tosser, at least not in death, then something the folks can sing along to would be nice. However, if you do want to go that way, then Clint Mansell's epic 'Death Is the Road to Awe' would fit that bill nicely
