Marianne Faithfull at The Pigalle Club

To the rather swanky Pigalle Club in Piccadilly Circus this week for a slap up meal in a 1940s-inspired supper club and to see Marianne Faithfull on stage. A wonderful night, an incredible woman. But enough about me. If – or rather, when – I’m ready to leave London, it’s nights like this (and this) that I will miss the very most. Lord Melyvn of Bragg was in the audience too and stood within spitting distance of our table. Not that I spat. When Marianne came back on stage to do her encore, she sang this and it almost broke my heart.

'At the age of 37, she realised she'd never ride through Paris
In a sports car, with the warm wind in her hair'
I did it - well it was a Ford Capri with the window open and I was 37 and driving.
BUT, I've never seen Marianne. Sounds great.

Yes great song. The video is a bit of a let-down though and doesn't really portray what's in the lyrics. I love the idea of the suburban housewive who goes mad and clambers onto the roof of the house, when all the laughter grows too loud...

Incidentally interesting that Kaz has a Patsy Stone avatar, as Marianne popped up in "Ab Fab" a couple of times as the female incarnation of the devil - and was very good!!
