About this book

In the ‘Land of Song and Literature’ that is Wales, what could be more natural than writing music and poetry? So this book is a collection of song lyrics and limericks. It is primarily a light-hearted look at the worlds of song writing and poetry. But it is much more than that. It is also a patchwork quilt of interviews, autobiography and mythology. Each lyric and set of limericks is preceded by prose, related (sometimes tenuously) to the reason for writing the verse. The lyrics were not written as poems, they are verses divorced from their musical settings....

  1. Saw the movie 'Nowhere Boy' last night. It covers a few years in the life of the young John Lennon. His teens were a troubled and rebellious time when he found his mother after being brought up by his Aunt Mimi. His mother dies soon after their reunion. He also discovers music, Paul McCartney and George Harrison. They go sailing off towards the sunset and Hamburg and the rest is history as they say. A must for all John Lennon and Beatles fans. A well made film with 19 year old Aaron Johnson superb as Lennon.
