Sleeping, Waking and Working

The first three days of the week just gone were spent Working in Woking. A very appropriate name for that town - because for three days I started life by waking in Woking at 6:00am to start working at 7:00am and was working in Woking WITHOUT any scheduled breaks right through until around 10:00pm - by which time I was back at the hotel for maybe some dinner and sleeping in Woking (with some middle of the night waking) to do the same stuff the next day. All I remember of Woking was the Holiday Inn Woking - the walk down the dual carriageway to the office - and the office - which I have to admit was very nice. The office was the only reason why working like that was possible.

Holiday Inn Woking

Holiday Inn Woking

When I wake up in the mornin’ light
I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
Hey I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on

From a song that I heard in Woking - from I just can’t quite remember when.
I can’t seem to find it anywhere on the Internet - but if you click the
above you will hear a Real Audio extract of the song by a more recent artist.

The original version is by David Dundas. It was written for a Brutus Jeans advert, and extended into a full song after the advert aired. “(Blue) Jeans On” seems to have been the name of the song

Yes - thanks for that Nigel. It turns out that David Dundas has done quite a few TV commercial theme tunes and songs - including UK TV ident tunes - e.g. ITV rebranding tunes in the 1990s. Pity I can’t locate his “Jeans On” track anywhere - not even on Kazaa! (Oops.) - Oh well - will have to try the second-hand record shops around Soho sometime …

Let me know if you find it on CD anywhere …

If you are still intrested in finding ‘Jeans On, by David Dundas’ I have downloaded it from the internet, and car send it to you. :)

Hi Nathalie - sorry it took so long for me to reply. I actually found the song in the end - and you can see my “Jeans On” 1970s audio/photo montage at:
