Ready, steady…. wait for it…

March 17, 2015
what are we going to do now?

You know what the next word is, but you’ll have to wait just a few moments.

You’re ready for the off. You’re just waiting, like an Italian donkey, for someone to say Andiamo, but no one does (and especially not with the beautiful sonorous tones of Ezio Pinza, here with the overdubbed Lana Turner in a lesser musical: You belong to my heart, AKA Mr Imperium).

It’s like getting to the station for the early train, standing on the platform and nothing happening.

It’s like Pink Floyd said – “No one told you when to run, You missed the starting gun.” Only it’s a bit worse than that – someone went round to all the other competitors and whispered in their ears “you can start running now.”

It’s like when you make plans, put time aside for someone or something. And then they blow you out, but forget to tell you. Or maybe they don’t forget.

It’s like “waiting for the man to come”, so to speak, but To Cut a Long Story Short* he (or maybe she) doesn’t show.

Well, I’m not waiting any more. And neither should you. So here’s Billy Idol, when he was just the frontman of Generation X to get us, under way.

Ready, Steady…..GO!

* You should take a look at the video for this – Spandau Ballet in true New Romantic style at the beginning (and some might say height) of their powers.
