Caption contest

September 15, 2007: Remember That Night at the Ritzy Picturehouse. Photo: Polly Samson.The above photograph, taken by Polly, is from the Ritzy in Brixton. This is where David premiered ‘Remember That Night’ for the benefit of North American cinema audiences (back in September).

And it’s just asking for a caption, really, isn’t it? So, over to you.

The prize is an exclusive four-track ‘Live from Abbey Road’ CD, available only in the US to those who pledge money to PBS. (Basically, pledge more than a certain sum, as will be decided by each local station, for a copy of ‘Remember That Night’ and you get the exclusive CD thrown in free.)

The CD comes in a cardboard case, is shrink-wrapped, and features the following tracks, recorded live at Abbey Road last year: ‘The Blue’, ‘On An Island’, ‘Take A Breath’ and ‘Smile’.

As you’ll expect from the prize, there is a PBS television special coming up. Details to follow very soon.

One caption per person only, please, to be submitted no later than 6PM (UK) on Friday 9 November. Winners will be announced on Monday.

Thank you for your varied comments about the ringtones. I don’t think anyone really needs more, which is why the previous entry is now missing a comment form, but some of us do appreciate your feedback.

‘Remember That Night’ is released in Japan today.

Last, but by no means least, the chatroom will next be open tomorrow between 10AM and 12PM (UK).

    Sorry to be so late with this, but I wanted to add my prayers for Simon’s son, Aaron. Good news soon, I hope.

    Which reminds me, has there been any information from Gabrielle and the situation with her loved one and the accident?

    And thank you Barbara Phillips and Andrew. I second your posts.

    I won’t attempt a caption. I’l leave that to the fertile brains of Rudders and Angelo and co. They usually manage to come up with many laughable entries.

    FE’d.. I hope you get some good reading and a few laughs to even out the frustrations from the questions and posts here.

    Have a good evening all,

    Simon, my heart goes out to you and your family.

    I am so sorry to hear about what happened to your son; my best wishes for his speedy recovery.

    To your daughter, it must be very hard for her to go through such a traumatic experience – I hope she stays strong and feels better.

    Take care!

    That picture should be upside down: it’s David hanging in a trapeze, never failing to surprise his audience.
