Greetings music lovers and others. What a tweeting week I have had. Fired up by the latest platform delivery system of my media empire, I feel it is only a matter of time before I can work out how to get my set-top box to work! If you Twitter, give me a chirrup…
Now to the crotchets and quavers of the week.
Fee Fi Fo Fum – Candy Girls
Thirteen Men In Blue – Southend
Winterwunderwelt – Gotz Alsmann
My German singer of choice and a lovely take on a seasonal song.

Musical cabbage – Compare & Contrast x 2
Teenage Dirbag – Wheatus
Teenage Dirtbag – Earl Okin
My Funny Valentine – Chet Baker

Ditto – the sultry & sexy Chet + some Maori class. Chet Baker had a tragic end, but a mighty career. As so often is the case with pure talent, other elements of living on this planet took their toll. He ended up somewhat damaged, but was always beautiful.
