Inspiring Donna

‘The Rain Song’ – Led Zeppelin

Further developments on the Situation/Berwin LP…
I’m adding to it a piano version of ‘Hey Jude’ – the only non-Christmas track – recorded by me (as Berwin) and Stan at Badger House ten days ago.  I’m putting it on as it serves as a brilliant companion piece to ‘Little Donkey’ (you’ll hear why when if you get a copy of the tape).  I wrote the new lyrics.
Tonite, Johnny came over and after a little discussion (hot gossip too – Missy and he nearly finished again and Abby wants to get back with him, so Julian tells him!) we did some work on three new tracks, in this order:
‘Last Christmas’ dubbed over the Wham track.  I wrote lyrics all about Johnny’s ‘experiences’ with Berwin over one Yuletide.  It’s sung by Johnny with Berwin (me).
‘Another Rock ‘n’ Roll Christmas’ is a song I’ve written and dubbed over the Gary Glitter track.  It’s all about Salathiel Groomstool’s views on sharing Christmas with his son, Berwin.  Johnny and I performed this and it’s basically supposed to be Salathiel with backing singers (and a cameo from Berwin).
‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ was written by me and Badcock over a generic Christmas track of Betty’s.  It’s basically all about Berwin’s Christmas perversions.  I sang it as Berwin and Johnny and I did the choir vocals together.
Other news: I’m not into the Conservatives, but I think Margaret Thatcher is being unfairly treated by her party.
Donna Davidson wrote to me today, eager to help out with FRANKENSTEIN.  Here’s a quote or two:
‘Ritcherd, I can’t tell you how often I think about you + how excited I am by the thought of working with you again.  Nobody inspires me or teaches me like you did.  I miss you so much and I really do love you – and it feels so pure…’
That’s sweet.
