Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.
Today I met up with friends for coffee. It was the first time we had coffeed for about six months due to Covid restrictions. It took me a while to engage my mouth again. It worked. 95.8% of Canberrans over 12 years of age are now double-vaxed so more and more restrictions are being removed. To our north, Sydneysiders are also achieving high vaccination levels. Hence, double-vaxed Sydneysiders can now travel to Canberra (Australia).
Anyway, my friends and I did some e-bike baby-sitting for a lady who had come down from Sydney. Unfortunately, I didn’t ask her name but I do know the name of her dog. It’s Evie and Evie is a miniature Schnauzer. The two of them decided to hire an e-bike and go for a ride. Evie rode pillion in her mum’s backpack. It was Evie’s first time riding pillion. She was a little champion. Naturally, I had to take a couple of photos.
Evie says, “Oh my Lord!“*
And Evie’s mum says, “Here is the team I’ve got / Here is my co-pilot / Here it’s in my blood.“*
Then Evie’s mum says to Evie, “We’re dangerous / And you’re very nice / And very good / And now we could / And now we could / And I surely would.“*
So they did.
Now we need the song that goes with those lyrics. The song is Here Is My Co-Pilot, written and performed by Aussie, Holly Throsby. It’s upbeat and poppy, just what we need when starting out on a new adventure with our team.
Have a good weekend, everyone. Be kind, be dangerous and look out for your mates.
*Of course, Evie and her mum did not say those lines. That part was fiction, but the look on their faces said it all. Words by Holly Throsby.
