Sex and drugs and rock'n roll


I wish…having had trouble with my back for some weeks, I can assure you, there haven’t been much sex lately.
And no rock’n roll for me either. My head cannot stand any noise for now.

But drugs, oh yes! Pills for head ache, C-vitamins, painkillers for my aching ear, strong tablets for my sore throat, syrup for my cough and lots of hot drinks.

I have the flu.

Luckily, Ian Dury in his time had it better.

As before, I can commiserate with you as regards the back pain. The image, of course, is a treat when considering the song and Mr. Dury. I remember when this first came out and it's really funny to me to see how the merge of 1970's rock into punk worked with The Blockheads. The music is pretty basic - although much more professional sounding than a lot of the punk bands - but the visual style ran the gamut. Facial hair, long hair, glam-rock hold-over clothing - three really BIG things that most punk rockers quickly railed against and did away with within a short year or two. Thanks for turning on the wayback machine here, Susu. :D

That's boring :(( Hope you get better soon! You should drink some alcohol: it kills bacteria. Drink some Kossu and you'd get better ;))

Down the memory lane, Mick! Blockheads sound in fact very chic when listening to it nowadays, compared to some other bands from that time.

But I don't feel like wanting any alcohol, Elina! Not even red wine. I must be really sick...

Oh dear, hope you get better soon.
Tea and sympathy from the frog :)

The back pain alone is killing. Hope you are better today as to the flu.

SusuPetal said...

I'm feeling a little bit better, Kutuharju, thanks!

Back ache is a pain, Liisa, but luckily the back is already better. The flu seems to be off and on.

You must be very very sick, if you don't want S D and R. Hope you are feeling better soon!

SusuPetal said...

Feeling better, Trijnie, but not perfect!

GMG said...

Glad to read that you're feeling better! Have a great week!

SusuPetal said...

Oh yes, Monday and work are calling, Gmg!

KennethSF said...

Hope you feel better soon. For motivation, think about all the sex you can have when you recover :-P

lepis said...

Well Susu,
Haven't you heart that sex is the best cure for back ache! Matter of fack, it cures almost anything :D :D :D

Go for it girl!

Blockheads were great! Still are.

Hope you'll have a better day today :)

SusuPetal said...

Thanks, Kenneth, I'm trying to think of the glorious days to come!

Lepis, in this blog there are only intented errors, that's our slogan!
I'm about to believe sex will cure almost eveything, but back ache isn't on the list. Oh no.

hpy said...

You must move when you have back ache, at least that's what doctors say today. Throw away the drugs and go along with the sex and rock'n roll even though you don't feel like it. At least you can give it a try.

Peter said...

hpy seems this time to give very good advice! At least it sounds much less risky than many other pieces of advice, recepies...!

Take care!

SusuPetal said...

Yes, HPY, walking is good for the back, but not too wild sex:)
Well, anyhow, I'm feeling better today -of course, it has been a working day...

Oh, Peter, you look young in your avatar! Do you have a good recipe for that:))

lepis said...

It's on the moves!

Simple moves for simple people, Lepis!
