Given the context was about the coffee cart, I'm a bit disappointed you didn't include expresso love in your post somewhere.

Is expresso love a euphemism for a quickie?

Maybe. For those that don't know, Expresso Love is a 30-year old Dire Straits song. Music lyrics in the early 1990s were probably more subtle with their references to that particular physical activity than the music of today. (Mind you, not as appalling as the Starland Vocal Band's nearly 50-year old "Afternoon Delight"). I've always thought Expresso Love was blending two themes - appreciation for a woman with a love for coffee ("tastes just like a peach", "with the honeysuckle musk" and "I don't want no sugar in it"* are all, in my view, references to coffee).

 

NB: *Demonstone - please direct your complaints about the double negative to Mark Knopfler.

Sorry Kev, I was making a silly joke - a play on words from that stupid dire straits song combiing your comment you don't like something for nothing  and radomly working in free kicks

As in 'money for nothing and your kicks for free'

Safe to say, quite a stretch.

But I agree with you about free kicks btw. 

Except it's chicks for free....have you been singing Alex the Seal whenever our lips are sealed comes on for 40 years too Bin??

Oh yes, so it is.

My joke was a total bust from start to finish!

Chicks for free?

The 80s were certainly another time.

Can't imagine a major record label would be putting out police's Don't stand so close to me in 2022.

100% about the coffee.  The Stones also pioneered the coffee analogy into rock & roll with their very raw... "Brown Sugar"

I don’t know how old he was when he wrote it but he was 33 when it was released. Twice the age you’d hope for him to have been. Any way you cut it, that’s a big bunch of wrong. 😁

The Beatles opened their Melbourne concert at Festival Hall in 1964 with "I Saw Her Standing There" which starts with the lines, "Well, she was just seventeen, you know what I mean". 

Times have changed.

"Brown Sugar" was definitely NOT about coffee! 

It's also not the original working title of the song which I wouldn't dare post on a family forum like Demonland.

They no longer play the song in concerts given the belated backlash to the lyrical content.

Ripping tune all the same and one of their all time best tracks.

Back on topic (Dire Straits) - this was posted here in December 2020 after it was announced that Josh Mahoney was going to Essendon and that Mark Williams had been hired as an assistant at Melbourne.

"I know we've been in dire straits, but I didn't expect to lose Mahoney for nothing and get Chocs for free."

I laughed at the thought, then googled. They ARE still performing!!!  60th anniversary tour this year. 

I'll never bag Geelong again!  

Oh, who am I kidding  😈

Ringo didn’t write it… it’s written by the Sherman brothers and was originally recorded by, I think, Johnny Burnette; although lyrically it’s probably something more suited to Jerry Lee Lewis.

God I loved that song when we all balanced and I walked home at 3.30 pm

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
