The Monday Poem is still there if you want to read it. In the meantime I'm moving on to a Tuesday song.
You might remember that my Mark is quite a Radiohead fan (and I've written about that band here and here). Mark also listens, quite regularly, to the solo album that Radiohead's Thom Yorke put out in 2006 ('The Eraser'). I remember it was up for the Mercury Prize that year and Yorke performed one of the tracks live on the awards show and it was brilliant (the track, the performance, the ability to turn a poxy awards show into something altogether more fantastic). You can see that performance here (who won that year? Arctic Monkeys says google) but the song from Yorke's album that has well and truly seeped into my mind this week is this one:
The lyrics (more or less...) are here.
Now I'm off to go and do some cleaning. Oh and I must email some questions to Liz Gallagher for her book blog tour thing.
