Yep the writer song meme tagged by the luminous Potdoll. I'm not digging too deep for this one: musicals, London 08 with Jimmy Cliff 'The Harder They come'

Maybe I feel it having worked on LU *snort*

Well the officers are trying to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
And they think that they have got the battle won
I say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done


ooh yeah oh yeah woh yeah ooooh

And I keep on fighting for the things I want
Though I know that when you're dead you can't
But I'd rather be a free man in my grave
Than living as a puppet or a slave

Plus I tag Elinor, Jennifer the occasional lurker, and WC Dixon - 'cause he has great musical taste (sometimes).

what exactly did you do on the underground FA? and is it true there are secret tunnels for the royal family?

Far Away said...

Dear Pot,

I did exactly what I still do now: 'tell people how to get to where they're going'

Yes loads of weird secret doors, places and stuff - especially for Parliament.

Only trouble is - no one ever uses them. Ha!!

potdoll said...

what a waste. are there many ghosts down there?

Far Away said...

some of the 'one unders'
become ghosts..

But not many...

potdoll said...

oooh. did you ever see one?

Far Away said...

I can't recall - though shift works makes you wired...
more sound ghosts..

potdoll said...

I don't believe in ghosts, but find them uber-scary in fiction. Especially the unseen ones, or indirectly seen ones, like in Turn of the Screw or Blair Witch. I even thought What Lies Beneath was scary, and Sixth Sense.

That last one showed the ghosts, but in scary ways which didn't dispel the dread.

Love to think of some great creepy sounds and images which signal: 'enter ghost.'

Sometimes?!? Derisive 'snort'

Ooh a song meme! Thanks FA, I'll get onto it.

When I was on LU, I never saw or heard a ghost (though there were always plenty of stories). The site of the bad crash at Moorgate was quite sad though.
