Hi there Catastrophe-ettes
Another week, another load of musical stuff. Some celebration of a little known but, in my humble opinion, great singer/songwriter/performer.
Who he ? Scroll and find out!
Jungle Boogie – Kool & The Gang
What – Soft Cell
Miss Kiss Kiss Bang – Alex Swings, Oscar Sings
A Little Rumba Numba – Hildegarde
The Madonna of her day and a good egg to boot.
Starlings – Elbow
One Time, One Night – Los Lobos
Attention Must Be Paid – Jake Thackray
You can’t put Jake Thackray in any category. He was one of a kind. At one and the same town, he was a man of the north (of England) and of the world (Frenchman George Brassens was one of his musical influences).
He observed life and told it as it was. He died far too young, but we’re lucky he was around at all.
Plastic Dreams – Jaydee
This was a tune that I “gave” myself to on numerous dancefloors in the 1990s.
You Belong With Me – Taylor Swift
After You Get What You Want, You Don’t Want It – Marilyn Monroe
Nobody But Me – Lou Rawls
It’s Good To Have You Near Again – Leontyne Price
Say You, Say Me – Lionel Ritchie
Inflation Language – Victor Borge
A great Dane, who became a global humourist. Never worked blue, always a cack!
Genius Of Love – Slow Down Honey
Pink Elephants – Mick Harvey
Moby Dick – Ruben Gonzalez
One of the Buena Vista Social Club stars.
Tourada Em Madrid – Carmen Miranda
What else can I say?
It’s The Incredible – Fast Crew
