Saturday 9: Five O'Clock World

 


 

Saturday 9: Five O'Clock World (1966)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.


1. Think back to Friday. Did it fly by? Or did you find yourself checking the clock and wishing it was 5:00? I'm not working, so I wasn't checking the clock. Even so, the days do fly by!

 2. This song refers to the 5:00 whistle that signifies the end of the work day. What's the last whistle, alarm or buzzer you heard? We alarmed the clock this morning, because Peter was catching the mail boat.

3. In the 1960s, the Vogues often appeared on TV variety shows to promote their record albums. Do you have the TV on now, as you answer these questions? TV is always on when Peter is home!!



4. "Vogue" means "popular or fashionable." Tell us about something that you feel is in vogue today. This isn't fashion related, but coloring books for adults are very popular right now. Still not sure how I feel about them.

5. Vogue magazine reported that the big Fall/Winter trend was brocade. Describe the latest addition to your Fall/Winter wardrobe. Shoes and a cute sweater.



6. Vogue editor Anna Wintour is such a difficult boss that disgruntled employees nicknamed her "Nuclear Wintour." What qualities do you think make a good boss? Available, approachable, a good leader, cares about employees, and is hands on.

7. Ms. Wintour was rumored to be the inspiration for the character of Amanda in the book and movie, The Devil Wears Prada. Did you receive any books or movies for Christmas 2015? Did you receive any gift cards that you then used for books or movies? No



8. "Vogue" was also a dance, made famous by Madonna in her 1990 hit by the same name. Can you name another Madonna song? I can name LOTS of Madonna songs: Material Girl, Crazy For You, Lucky Star, Like A Prayer....

9. Random question from a Sat9-er: How organized are your clean clothes? (Stacked in piles, folded neatly in drawers, still in the dryer....?) They are actually put away! :O)
