The theme made me think of The Owl and The Pussycat – which JVG allowed me to read on the day. We ended up thinking a good name for JVG’s celebrant business might be ‘The Turkey Who Lives on the Hill’.
Anyway, we played this odd song ‘Himmler’s Ring’ – about a bloke who collects nazi memorabilia.
The version of the song that I know is on Lowell George’s solo album – Thanks I’ll Eat It Here. Such a great record. Turns out the song was actually written by Jimmy Webb.
