  1970

"Take what you can from yesterday. The rest, beg, steal or borrow."


Quick - who said that?

Maverick?
No.
The main character from "It Takes A Thief"...?
NO.
Dennis The Menace?
Noooo!


Really now - you give up?
Good!
Because you were never going to guess anyways!
Not unless you are British and were watching
circa 1970-1972...

Aye, while the Boston Bruins were ruling the NHL
and winning Stanley Cups
across the pond, one TAROT
flanked by his faithful OWL
(named Ozymandias!)
were battling CRIME
with greater aplomb too
than many other TV heroes of their day...!
(Imagine that though:
the pet having a better name than the master!
Only happens in children's fare, usually
*lol* But I digress...)


TAROT and OZYMANDIAS
were fighting crime on the hit show
"ACE OF WANDS"...!




Doesn't ring a bell?

That's okay!

Here - go back in time... NOW!
Go back to 1972 - and watch:






Steve Hackett must have been paying homage to it - 
in his 1975 solo debut, after bailing on my 
favorite band (1985 until 1999, maybe? 
After what they did to poor Ray Wilson...!)
Genesis!



Now, tell me: after watching this trailer
you, too, will agree that
this duo made a far more effective
crimefighting duo
than the so-called dynamic duo
(Batman & Robin, yes)
and several other duos/duets
over the years
- even some others offered by the venerable BBC!
Sapphire & Steel,
The Persuaders,
Tara King and John Steed,
Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)
and The Saint with Chief Inspector Teal
aaaaaall come to mind...!

Tarot & Ozy ruled!

The definition of "timeless song"
in melody... haunting melody...
and ambiance... lyrical ambiance... WOW!

And this, despite the dreary urban tale...! 
Double wow! 











Some people tagged it "heavenly" nonetheless -
in spite of the dreadful, sordid tale the video depicts - 
and I can see why!
Anyone can see -or rather hear- why...
(as long as the video is working, that is!)

Has this song only turned 4 years-old now?
It seems older... ethereal even!
TIMELESS...


Highly evocative of other timeless tunes
such as 10cc's "I'm Not In Love"
and The Korgis' "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime"
- to name but two...!
This would be my number three...!
