I hadn't planned to do a TT today - I'm trying very hard to keep my very distractable attention on getting the next lot of handwritten edits for McCabes2 into the computer. But I plugged in the iPod so I could jiggle in my seat instead of getting out of it, and Tom Jones started crooning at me.
A blog I read that has nothing to do with writing, or reading, hell even sex, posed the question - Kiss. Tom Jones or Prince? Tom Jones was my answer, but I've always wondered if Prince was a mink in the sack...
Of course after hearing the song I tripped the light fantastic along to iTunes (seriously Apple aren't paying me an endorsement fee for this post, though maybe they should) and downloaded a heap of ol'Tom to groove to - Reloaded was such a cool album, though I guess many of the artists would be unknown to a lot of the American public?
So in honor of Tom, and his Welsh "knicker-hurling frenzy of raw sexual tension" here's 13 favourite songs.
- Burning down the House
- Baby, it's cold outside
- Mama told me not to come
- Sex Bomb - who can forge this one?
- She's a lady
- Green, green grass of home
- What's new Pussycat?
- It's not unusual
- I'll never fall in love again
- Do ya think I'm sexy?
I'm a bit a Cerys fan, this is a favourite of mine:
