Still a day late, this is yesterday’s shot, one of the graffiti that Ted Byrne loves so much 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Just One Smile“, one more song from the 2006 collaboration of Randy Crawford and Joe Sample called “No Regrets”. Just as yesterday I have I’ve only a sound sample (albeit a good one) on this Belgian site.

The song itself is interesting as it’s actually a Randy Newman composition, recorded by The Tokens (I’ve just ordered one of their few available original albums) and by Gene Pitney, both in 1966, then in 1967 by Blood, Sweat & Tears for their debut album, now by Randy Crawford and Joe Sample, but seemingly never by Randy Newman himself.

  1. Ted Byrne does NOT like graffiti, he hates grafs…. Hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, hates, them.

    Yeah, this is charming. Cute even. Yes you have pained prettily with crap. But you will encourage these people who respect only their own whims, their own shrill petulance. Someday you will find a graf on the side of your car, or the back of your head, or across an image which you have labored upon and had hung in a gallery. Or someday, imagine coming upon your baby in its carriage to find an indelible graf upon its forehead.

    Only then will the adolescent self indulgence of the graf artist trigger you along with me to hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, both the act and the actor. Grumble…

  2. Ahh Ted, I new you would like it 🙂
