Today's soundtrack: U2 - War
Busy day today, motor racing and football to watch, with a family get-together sandwiched in the middle.
Ultimately though, the race fizzled out as a combination of tyre wear and a wall of slightly quicker cars halted the charge. Oh for a thunderstorm in the last ten laps!
Then it was out for Easter lunch with the family - a carvery at the Village in Bromborough, and very enjoyable it was too, despite me making my usual schoolboy error of eating far too much (did I really need those last three profiteroles?) and feeling decidedly uncomfortable at the back end of the afternoon. So rather than sit there feeling bloated, we beat an early retreat back home - where the Everton game was being Sky-plussed ready for viewing.
Sadly let down by Son No 2 today, who gleefully announced that the Pixies were playing Glastonbury this year, only to find he'd been April Fooled (and not for the first time this year!) Still, with confirmations from The Gaslight Anthem and the likelihood of The Hold Steady and The Courteeners confirming soon, I don't think we'll be struggling for things to do and see.
U2 are, of course, already confirmed, and it is 'War' that has come up on the soundtrack today. Their third album, released well before The Canonisation Of Saint Bono, it's not their best work by a long stretch. But it does include New Year's Day and Sunday Bloody Sunday, and generally chunters along quite inoffensively.
Here's a young-looking U2 performing 'Two Hearts Beat as One'. Nice mullett, Bono!
