Saturday 9: Don't Sleep In The Subway

Hey everyone; link up here if you're playing along today!


Saturday 9: Don't Sleep in the Subway (1967)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) Subways can be bright and noisy. Do you need it dark and quiet before you can fall asleep? 
I used to be able to sleep in full lights and sunshine, but lately I like it darker before I can sleep. Honestly, though, when I really need to sleep I can do it through anything.

2) In this song, Petula encourages her lover to talk it out instead of walking out. Do you usually remain reasonable during a disagreement?
Not usually. I can be pretty unreasonable when I'm upset!

3) Petula was a child star in England during WWII. Her BBC broadcasts were very popular with the British troops, who nicknamed her The Singing Sweetheart. Soldiers pasted her photo onto their tanks for luck as they went into battle. Do you have any little rituals or good luck charms that calm/comfort you when you're afraid?
Rituals, no, but I do need my "bearpo" to comfort me to sleep. Nothing really calms me when I'm afraid except ... well, my anxiety medication.

4) Now 84, she recently told London's Daily Mail that she's surprised and thrilled to have found love again with a new man. Do you believe you'll ever be too old for romance?
I hope not!
5) Her family is far flung. She lives in London, her middle daughter is in Paris, her son is in Los Angeles and her oldest daughter lives in New York with Petula's two grandchildren. Who is your nearest friend or relative? Which one is farthest away?

My nearest friends are here in Idaho, Becca O., and Joe and his wife, along with our awesome new neighbors. My farthest friends are in New York and Miami, with relatives all over the United States.
6) In 1967, when this song was popular, Rolling Stone published its first issue. John Lennon was on the cover. Publisher Jann Wenner reports that, either individually or as a group, the members of The Beatles have appeared on the most Rolling Stone covers. What's the first Beatle song that comes to mind?

"Hey Jude," the first one I ever heard of when I was young. It was in a book. I do not remember the book.
7) In 1967, Star Trek was in its second season on NBC. Who is your favorite Star Trek character?
Image result for George Takei  
I honestly don't know that much about Star Trek, since I'm not a Trekkie, but I love George Takei. I guess I'll say Mr. Sulu, then??

8) RANDOM QUESTION: When you slip into jeans or slacks, which foot do you put in first?
I usually put the right one on first, but I'm not sure I do this every time. Also, I don't say 'slacks,' like my dad does. I'm just generic and say 'pants.' Is that weird?

9) As you considered #8, did you mime pulling on your pants?
Only ever so slightly, with my feet kind of wiggling as I thought about it. LOL Gal, you're silly!
Thanks for stopping by!
