    Bath time with Kim Wilde and Mike Oldfield

    Think I've got a crush on Kim Wilde. Set to tour soon, she said in a Guardian article that she listens to Mike Oldfield's Ommadawn in the bath every Sunday night.
    Helps clear her mind. Also loves gardenin'.

    So. Can see myself in the bath as well. Lovin' my favourite album. Not with Kim herself. Am not delusional. Just me, the music and a small glass of sherry. Warmin'.

    So what album would you play takin' a long, warm bath?

    Understatement....

    Gardening career


    During her first pregnancy, an old interest in gardening resurfaced and she attended Capel Manor college to learn about horticulture, so as to create a garden for her children. As a celebrity, she was asked by Channel 4 to act as a designer for their programme Better Gardens.[45] A year later, she started a two-year commitment with the BBC, recording two series of Garden Invaders.[46]

    In 2001, she (along with fellow horticulturist David Fountain) created the "All About Alice" garden for the Tatton Flower Show and was awarded the 'Best Show Garden' award.[47] In 2005, she won a Gold award for her courtyard garden at the Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower Show.[48] She has designed and created numerous gardens during her involvement in the Better Gardens and Garden Invaders TV programmes and commissioned by individuals and organisations. She has also created gardens for flower shows across the UK. In 2001 she was involved in setting a world record for the largest tree transplantation, when a 58 feet (18 m) London plane was moved from Belgium to a development site in Warrington.[49] After standing in its new location for six years, however, the tree was toppled by a storm in January 2007.[50]
    Publications


    Wilde has written two books as part of her gardening career. The first, Gardening with Children, was released on 4 April 2005 by Collins publishers.[51] Translations of the book were released at the same time in Spain, France, Denmark and the Netherlands, and later in Germany.[52][citation needed] Her second book, The First-Time Gardener, was released on 3 April 2006 (again by Collins), and is a beginner's guide to gardening.[53]

      Looks like her career has really blossomed.

            Something by Alice Coltrane, probably.

              Ommadawn is a Sunday morning LP for me. Bathtime? 'To Be Over', perhaps 'Bedside Manners are Extra' (Greenslade) or Tales From Topographic Oceans.

                Is it wrong that I like Kim Wilde's version of "You Keep Me Hanging On" better than the original version by the Supremes?

                "A lot of the heavier conversations I was having with Chris toward the end were about his desire for this thing to go forward. He kept reiterating that to me. [...] He kept telling me, 'No matter what happens, Yes needs to continue moving forward and make great music. So promise me that that's something you want to do.'. And I have to keep making music. It's just what I do. [...] I'm a fan of the band and I want to see it thrive and that means new music." -Billy Sherwood

                  Nah, it's fine. Personally, my favorite is Rod Stewart's version from Foot Loose & Fancy Free. It's actually slightly prog-ish in the arrangement.
