Off colour

You hear some different music on Catalan local radio; it’s much more eclectic than the British equivalents, and it’s usually on in the car, when I’m driving. A few days ago I heard a track by a woman singer who was right up there with Cyndi Lauper. The presenter billed her as ‘Peenk’, so next time I was online I went looking for her. 

Seems that P!nk (sic) has been around for a few years, and yes I had heard of her, but never regarded her as being up there on the level of La Lauper, or old Madge, or even the bloody awful Lady Gaga. A quick look at iTunes gave me a clue why. It turns out that P!nk is  more than a little B!ue, since quite a few of her tracks have red ‘Explicit!’ warnings beside them. Not to be deterred I downloaded a couple, one called ‘True Love’, where ‘as*hole’ is the potentially objectionable word, and another, where there is no doubt, since its title is ‘F**kin’ Perfect’.

‘What the hell is that?’ Eileen demanded when I played it. I looked at her, all innocence. ‘It’s your song, honey,’ I said. (I give lessons, guys.)

    You give lessons? Presumably in self defence. Is Eileen talking to you yet?
    On another topic, I finally got round to reading “Funeral note”. Thoroughly enjoyed it. As you say in the foreword, it fills in a lot of the blanks.

    Pink is popular in OZ.
    I had never heard of hre until she came out here for a few weeks ,a few years ago , but her humour, insight and general good natured playfulness do not align with first impressions when you see her.
    Simply put, she does not appear to take herself too seriously.
