Like to update blog look ? A change is as good as a liquorice allsort or cheese sandwich I always say. You have to think the boffins and biffinettes @ wordpress.com are pretty clever – one click of a mouse and I went all column-y !
The blog may look different, but the assortment of this, that and the other remains the same. So scroll down and drink it in.
Does It Feel Good 2 You ? – Foreal People
Slow Gin – Loka Nunda
A track from Loka’s newly released album. A mate and a true musical original…sexy geezer too!
Hold On Tight – Judith Durham
One of the great voices. Here she is singing one of her most memorable songs.
Until Now – Sally Mayes
Temptation – Sandra Lawrence
This Week Americans – Do I Hear A Waltz (Cast)
This musical combined the then failing talents of a theatre great (Richard Rogers) and the developing skills of a soon to be theatre legend (Stephen Sondheim)
Catwalk – The Gadflys
Shadows – Rufus Wainwright
Touch Of Evil – Henry Mancini
The theme from a noiresque movie that is well worth a squizz. It is full of grotesque characters and dodgy make-up. It is famous for this opening shot.
I Was So Young – Bobby Short
Urbane, sassy and gay. Bobby Short wowed the cocktail quaffing types in New York and beyond for decades.
Get Happy – Ella Fitzgerald
Background To History – Monty Python
I Wish I Were A Princess – Little Peggy March
My One & Only – The Cliquot Club Eskimos
A Gershwin tune played with 20s aplomb by a band with the coolest of names and they wore cool costumes
Time, Love & Tenderness – Michael Bolton
Toll The Bell Easy – Les Hobeaux
This Old Heart Of Mine – Isley Brothers
Arms Around The World – Louise
Three Little Maids – Cool Mikado (Soundtrack)
Gilbert & Sullivan may be “old hat” to many, but it has been re-versioned and sampled and mashed-up from the get go. What does that tell us ? That Sir Arthur Sullivan’s music is sturdy and supple at the same time. He was the ABBA of his age. Here’s a 1930s take on this song.
All Of Me – Frank Sinatra
Broc Mor – Endaf Emlyn
I’m Sailin’ – Mazzy Star
