I know it's a bit obvious to do a podcast like this so shortly after my birthday, but it gives me the opportunity to ramble a bit and play some classics I might not otherwise have played.

There are so many wonderful songs about growing old, and I actually think I may have missed most of them.  I have no fear of being old, but for some reason it feels a little more immediate this year but I don't know why.

So goodnight people, it's been a pleasure.  Sleep well and don't be too rough on yourselves.  Take Kirsty's advice and don't be too rough on my cold, cold heart; it's all I've got left to me now."

That may be the smart-arsed line, but the most important line in this song is the bit where she says that 'there's a light in your eyes tells me somebody's in and you won't come the cowboy with me'.  It's such a crucial judgment, isn't it.  You take a bet on someone, you throw in your chips and you hope for the best.  So if you're feeling brave, good luck to you.  Look after her, I'll be there anytime soon.
