I Said Oops Up Side Your Head, I Said Oops Up Side Your Head

 

I used to like this song (the one in the title) when I was young but I spent hours and hours and hours and hours trying to work out the meaning of the title. I still don’t know what it means and little Emily is just as puzzled as I am. It’s stupid. It’s a good song, but it’s stupid.

 

We’ve been going through some of my records.

 

Where’s Adam Ant? I loved Adam Ant with his stripey face and flamboyant movements of his arms. 

STAAAAAAND AND DELIVER,

YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE

 

 

And little Jimmy Somerville. WHERE IS LITTLE JIMMY SOMERVILLE? Bronski Beat. Yeah.

 

And that group, what’s-their-name, who sang

RED, RED, WINE

STAY CLOSE TO ME

ALL I CAN DO I’VE DONE

DI DI DA DA DA

 

Why can’t I remember their name?

I KNOW IT.

I’ve always known it.

Kingston Town.

Cherry-O-Baby.

ALI CAMPBELL was the singer.

Oh for fuck’s sake.

IT’S ANNOYING ME.

 

TELL ME IT SOMEBODY

PLEASE

NOW

THANK YOU

    My daughter, Lord Evil, felt sorry for you.
    She asked if we could do a vlog for you.
    I said you didn’t deserve it, but as I fear her, I agreed.

    Well, I would have helped you but I’ve spent the last hour and half trying to get my father to go to sleep. He keeps thinking I am his sister and wants to know when the boat will be coming to get him. I never should have banged my head into the shower wall last night because this damn headache won’t go away and he’s not helping the situation!
    Adam Ant is on tour in Australia right now but will be in the UK in July…not that you’d go but you could think about feeding him Cumberland sausages.

    • Dear Dorothy,
      OH. I wish you hadn’t told me Adam Ant was still performing. It’s sad when they get old and they’re still prancing round the stage like youngsters. I don’t like him now.
      Love Dotty xxx

  11. Hi, sweetie,

    I just got home — sorry!!! Red Red Wine was originally sung by Neil Diamond, but it was released by UB40 in 1983. Sorry I wasn’t home! I hope all is well, otherwise than being annoyed with us! 8-)

    Love,

    Judith

  12. Oh, for Pete’s sake, UB40, already. Now tell us what happened to Adam Ant…”don’t drink, don’t smoke…what do you do?” Bless his judgmental heart…

  13. *covers her eyes while weeping* I’m so sorry! I’ve come too late. There’s nothing left of the party but the crying and sick on the floor…
