This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Phil Ochs September 15, 2018

Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to..., Uncategorized.

Over the Summer we were away in Clare for a while. Beforehand I didn’t break the news that there was no WiFi in the house but I did mention that there was a DVD player. My daughter was the only one who took any heed and she packed a number of DVDs .
After the shock of no WiFi or even a 3G phone signal died down (there was actually 3G in a spot in the garden where I went to smoke!) there was a search for the DVD player. No sign of it until my daughter spotted it built into the side of the TV. Cue the DVD selection being brought out….. among them was the film Pitch Perfect.
You may or may not know what is referred to as “The Cup Song” in the film , better known as “When I’m gone” by Phil Ochs. I was amused when we got home to provide a Phil Ochs album to my daughter with the afore mentioned song. Funny how a musical education can come from anything!

Been that soldier re wifi. That was very smart of your daughter to bring DVDs.

By the way like the music too!
