(JP: 'I'll tell you how this came about, because now that I'm, you know, working at the weekends, I have a bit of time sometimes in the afternoon to sit down and watch old black and white films on TV. I wish there was a kind of black and white channel: if I was an entrepreneur, I would start one and make an immense amount of money in so doing...old newsreels, anything that's in black and white is just fine with me. There's a whole series of films featuring Jessie Matthews, who eventually turned into Mrs. Dale on the BBC many years ago. You'll probably not remember that. These films were made I suppose back in the 1930s, and I'd never seen any of them before, and she was really rather wonderful. There was one song that I heard in one of these films which really kind of stuck in my mind, and I could actually sing it to myself in a rather unpleasant way. Didn't know what it was called, and eventually so desperate was I that I went out and bought a compact disc called 'Dancing On The Ceiling', and went all the way through it trying to identify the track that I liked, or the song that I liked, and I got as far as track 15 before I discovered what it was. In fact, it's the last sort of 30 seconds of track 15. The first part of it is 'Tinkle Tinkle Tinkle', bet this'll stick in your head too, I suspect, when you hear it. The bit that I like best is called 'Over My Shoulder'.')
(JP: 'Actually, that's not the track I wanted to play. Nothing wrong with this one, but it's really not the one I intended to play. Such a good segue too, but that's life, especially at twenty minutes to two in the morning.')
