Greetings: good riddance to January
Dollar on Top of the Pops, 1982
I'm rather glad to see the back of January to be honest - it's a shame really, but it's a month with a lot to answer for. I was never very good at sticking to either fiscal or food diets, but that's what the first month of the year forces the majority of us to do - in the hope that it'll assuage our guilt. This week's economic forecast didn't exactly help dispel the gloom, and unsurprisingly, the winter weather was blamed for poor sales figures. It's just a pity that the economy wasn't in tandem with the temperature which appears to be on the way up - days are getting longer, and there's a hint of optimism in the air.
To lighten the mood, how about your suggestions for songs about money or anything connected with currency. How about 80's band "Dollar" to get us going, and the very up-beat "Money's Too Tight to Mention" from Simply Red, or even "Pennies from Heaven"
That's just a few - I know there's more and it would be good to have your thoughts.
