The Thick of It (Armando Iannucci, 2005-2012)
You can fall for chains of silver
you can fall for chains of gold—
you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet
Johnny Cash & June Carter - If I Were A Carpenter
If a tinker were my trade / would you still find me?
Carrying the pots I made / following behind me.
One of the more beautiful love songs I’ve ever heard. Written by Tim Hardin, mainlining that ephemeral, boiling core of human desire.
Smokey Robinson and the Miracles - I Second That Emotion
And a taste of honey is worse than none at all. Whew, ain’t that right.
