Favourite Song ATC Swap

Favourite Song ATC 1 Favourite Song ATC 2 Favourite Song ATC 3

Here I go again! Signing up for another ATC swap without thinking about it! The theme for the swap was 'Favourite Song' which most people wouldn't think too much about but I don't listen to much music radio. I don't have a favourite song, let alone 3 of them. In fact I am listening to the radio as I type this and it is talk radio.

I was supposed to send these cards off last Thursday but I could not think of what to do. Eventually I came up with the 'Pictures of Lily', written by Pete Townshend in the mid 1960s and sung by The Who. I think that this one came to mind because I can remember entering a competition way back then where entrants had to submit a sketch of what they thought Lily would look like. I didn't win.

'I was Only Nineteen' is an Australian song about the Vietnam war and was written by John Schuman and sung by Redgum. The recent Vietnam Veterans' Day had me thinking about this evocotive song so I decided to include it in this set.

'Lady in Red', written and sung by Chris De Burgh is a song that The Poet used to be quite fond of so I decided to include it as my third choice. It had to be done quickly as I was way over time for sending them out and I couldn't take the time needed to do a decent drawing of a lady. Lacking an appropriate rubber stamp, I went off to left field and used a butterfly in red. It's my card. I can do what I like!

Butterflies have ladies too. :-) I have a lot of CD's and I refuse to listen to any talk radio!

They are all quite good but the Lady in Red really speaks to me.
