I don't even know where to begin.
How do I summarise the surprising twists and turns in UK politics in the last seven days? I can say this much: the country is anxious.
In the thick of it, it's hard to step back and get an overview. After the 18 hours it took for votes to be counted and for a hung parliament to be announced, the three parties closed the doors for talks. There was much speculation over what deals would be made and between whom.
The assumption was naturally lefty Liberal Democrats would come to some arrangement with Labour, leaving the Conservatives without a hope. But as they say, you should never assume, because you make an ass of u and me. …

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarassing.
Step 3: Strike out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
I have skipped any songs whose name is the exact same as their first lyric. Example: "What's better to receive at Christmas" by Eddie Goretsky and "Oh Yeah" by Yello. I have also skipped podcasts and audiobooks. At least one of the songs I don't know the artist to.

I am really enjoying the ska tracks in Amy Winehouse's current album, Back to Black (Deluxe Edition). One of the songs she covers is Hey, Little Rich Girl, originally by The Specials.
The Specials were part of the short-lived ska revival at the end of the 70s / early 80s. I always saw Terry Hall as the Damon Albarn of the day: clever, witty and incredibly talented. I've watched his career with fascination - Fun Boy Three, The Colourfield, collaborations with The Lightning Seeds, Stephen Duffy, Dub Pistols, Gorillaz and Tricky. I am over to the moon to find he announced earlier this year that The Specials will be reforming for tour dates this autumn, and possibly for some recording. …
