Glasgow was heaving tonight - and I imagine it's not any different in just about every single city and town across the globe.
Millions of office parties seemed to have been held this afternoon, and everyone staggered out afterwards drunk and in search of more entertainment. Inevitably, the best comes in the queue at the taxi ranks.
There will be tears before, during and after bedtime.
I'm happy just to have made it back in one piece.
For very obvious reasons, a particular song went through my head. Here's the original and a fine cover version:-
mp3 : The Specials - Friday Night, Saturday Morning *
mp3 : Nouvelle Vague - Friday Night, Saturday Morning*
*song no longer available to download
Buy the original on the LP ' The Specials : Singles', and the cover version on 'Nouvelle Vague : Nouvelle Vague' (strangely enough). Both are at amazon right here
Here's a PS added 12 hours after the original posting.
I was stumbling around 'You Tube' and found a home-made video, which by coincidence was shot in Glasgow, to go with this song. Worth a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiTwy33Dz5s
