2 AGAINST 5

Nothing beats the morning when the sun shines bright, 

Dry eyes open drink the pale blue light

Cracks in the shutters let the colours bleed in

Open up the window let the world right in

Take it easy

Take it in

 

Clock keeps ticking but it don't mean a thing

Clapping its hands to the time it brings

Got nowhere to be, I got nowhere to go 

I'm taking it easy, I'm taking it slow

Take it easy

Take it in

 

2 Against 5 may not seem a fair fight,

but how strong are your 2? 

If you feel like the odds have got you beat  

You've got to make them work for you

 

Hustle and a bustle and toyle and trouble 

Working real hard but the boss wants double 

Working days come but working days go

But this ain't working I'm taking it slow

Take it easy

Take it in

 

2 Against 5 may not seem a fair fight,

but how strong are your 2? 

If you feel like the odds have got you beat  

You've got to make them work for you

Happed In Mist - Michael Marra

This is a beautiful song by Michael Marra about a character from the book Sunset Song called Ewan Tavindale. He is taken from his home and forced to fight in the first world war at the age of 25. During his time in the trenches he loses his mind and sees a vision of his fiance which he is drawn towards. The apparition appears in the opposite direction of the battle so poor Ewan is sentenced to death by firing squad and buried in a cowards grave. There were 306 British soldiers condemned to death by their own side for being "cowards". Lest We Forget.

Jack Bruce - 14 May 1943 – 25 October 2014

I grew up listening to Cream and it was a massive surprise when I found out Jack Bruce was Scottish. When I was a teenager, there seemed to be no credible musicians from Scotland. I know now that it was my record collection that was lacking but when I was growing up, Scotland's musical contribution seemed to be Wet, Wet, Wet, Deacon Blue, The Bay City Rollers & Lulu. It took a bit longer to come across Michael Marra. My headphones constantly boomed with Bowie, The Stones, Springsteen & Cream. So when it was revealed to me that 33.3% of Cream came from Bishopbriggs, I couldn't believe it. 

Rest in peace Jack, you ment so much to so many but you gave many young Scottish musicians hope that the topper most of the popper most was not only within reach, but had already been conquered. X
