#TourDeFrance #cheese

And on the 11th day, the Yellow Jersey rests. I have not seen every moment are any of the stages so far but that is due to real life getting in the way. Damn you real life! Yesterday was the worst though. I did not catch a single minute of the stage and from reading @paull at https://www.godsjukebox.com/paull/johnny-hallyday-pour-moi-la-vie-va-commencer/ it seems like I missed a lot of excitement. These Healthcare professionals keep me busy and I was out of Fika and other important necessities I had to go out on an adventure and do my own little Tour stage.

Today is Scottish singer Donovan what's another video edited by Munrow whose videos I always enjoy quite a bit. I usually like as write-ups also but this time it's just the basic stuff which is probably what I should be doing instead of boring everybody. The flick in the video is Alicia Silverstone and Cary Elwes in THE CRUSH. It's been ages since I have seen that one.


"Mellow Yellow" is a song written and recorded by Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan. In the US it reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1966. (Both Good Vibrations by The Beach Boys and Winchester Cathedral by The New Vaudeville Band kept it from hitting No. 1.) Outside the US, "Mellow Yellow" peaked at No. 8 in the UK in e

The song was rumoured to be about smoking dried banana skins, which was believed to be a hallucinogenic drug in the 1960s, though this aspect of bananas has since been debunked. According to Donovan's notes, accompanying the album Donovan's Greatest Hits, the rumour that one could get high from smoking dried banana skins was started by Country Joe McDonald in 1966, and Donovan heard the rumour three weeks before "Mellow Yellow" was released as a single. According to The Rolling Stone Illustrated Encyclopedia of Rock and Roll, he admitted later the song made reference to a vibrator; an "electrical banana" as mentioned in the lyrics. This definition was re-affirmed in an interview with NME magazine: "it's about being cool, laid-back, and also the electrical bananas that were appearing on the scene - which were ladies' vibrators."

Paul McCartney can be heard as one of the background revellers on this track, but the "quite rightly" whispering answering lines in the chorus is not McCartney but rather Donovan himself.[10] Donovan had a small part in coming up with the lyrics for "Yellow Submarine", and McCartney played bass guitar (uncredited) on portions of Donovan's Mellow Yellow album.
