The gone Go-Between

I was saddened to hear of Grant McLennan's passing at the weekend. He was an amazing songwriter.

Queenslander Z├ęzette provides some background in her reflective post.

For all his songwriting genius, this probably wasn't one of his "masterpieces" (I mean who rhymes "Gregory Peck" with "what the heck"?) but it's always been one of my faves, as was the movie The Omen.

Lee Remick

She comes from Ireland
She's very beautiful
I come from Brisbane
I'm quite plain

She's from the mountains, so close to heaven
Clouds on her shoes, stars on her chest

I love Lee Remick, she's a darling

She was in The Omen with Gregory Peck
She got killed, but what the heck
Her eyes are like gems
She's an actress for Screen Gems

I love Lee Remick, she's a darling

Her hair's red, but it's not dye
If I touched her, I know I'd want to cry
My life is desperation, but it's only infatuation

I love Lee Remick, she's a darling
