Twas the night before Midsumma…and didn’t we have fun. We didn’t? I challenge to a dual or a hand of whist. This is really not how I imagined things Fiona.
Take 2: Starting with American Idiot to salute the achievements of George W Bush this was a Full Catastrophe at the cutting edge of light entertainment – and entertain you lightly we did (“The Micallef Program 1999”)
It was deliberately light and fluffy as I needed to keep my guttering clear for the perils of the Midsumma stage and the Joy outside broadcast. And the response was positive…some block voting by the Carmen Miranda Is Fab Campaign not withstanding.
As for the inside broadcast that was TFC #43:
American Idiot – Green Day
Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby? – Joe Jackson
Love Machine – The Miracles
Slave To Love – Brian Ferry
More on this can be found on my Recon profile!
Another One Bites The Dust – Queen
Hang On Little Tomato – Pink Martini
In Case You Were Wondering ? – It sells, but what is it?
I Don’t Want To Set The World On Fire – Ink Spots (Burgers)
Boum – Charles Trenet (Healthcare)
This is the song “Boom” by E. Ray Goetz and Charles Trenet and featured on Allo Allo.
Why did my heart go boom?
Me and my heart go boom,
Boom titty boom once I found you.
They don’t write them like that anymore. Thank god.
Mama Don’Wan’No Peas An’ Rice An’Coconut Oil – Count Basie (Cooking oil)
I Yi, Yi, Yi, Yi – Carmen Miranda (High Fibre Cereal)
Let’s Do It – Cole Porter
And as a final salute to the “sell, sell, sell” maxim, the greatest exponent of the live ad – Graham Kennedy
Who’s That Girl – Eurythmics
A Wonderful Guy – Lee Adam Wilshier
A great new release called “Lover Man” Melbourne vocalist, Lee Adam Wilshier. He is a man after TFC’s own heart as he takes some of the best-loved songs of all time and, with their original gender-specific lyrics, serves them up fresh and new to a gay male audience. Brill.
Red Sails In The Sunset – The Platters
Cuban Love Song – Edmundo Ros & Orchestra
I wittered on somewhat about Edmundo a few weeks ago – here is his theme tune which still takes me back a my childhood. Mum baking, my brother doing his homework, me paying far too much attention to Doris Day.
Boogie Chillen – John Lee Hooker
Anyone Can Whistle – Nancy Wilson
If this is your first experience of Nancy (come on, behave) then click here and your life will be much enriched.
Olinda Road – Barry Flanagan
You Got It Bad Girl – Stevie Wonder
TFC’s tribute to the new on the spot syphilis test being introduced at Midsumma Carnival. Seriously, get tested guys…it ain’t painful and it could make the world of difference. And in other Syphilis news:
Over The Rainbow – Forbidden Broadway
I Wanna Be Like You – Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
So Many Men, So Little Time – Touchez
I refer the question from the Honorable Member for Commercial Road to my previous comments about Stevie Wonder
