In the aftermath of the Royal Wedding TFC humbly offers up a loyal offering to Wills & Catherine.
Amid all the media hubbub I simply ask one question. Who gave them a toaster ?
That Mellow Saxophone – Roy Montell
The Bones Of You –Elbow
Kites – Simon Dupre & The Big Sound
I Hear You Knocking – Dave Edmunds
I Wanna Be Loved byYou – Helen Kane
Taking A Chance On Love – Billy Eckstine
Muscle Addiction – Mike Haboush
A song from “Naked Boys Singing”.
Fairytales About Love – Maja Tatic
A fine example of Eurosonglish, that strange mixture of the English language, bland lyrucs and not very good pronunciation. It is ghastly and glorious at the same time.
Marwurrumburr – Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu
Why Do Fools Fall In Love – Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers
An Turas – Sunrise Not Secular
My Body Is A Cage – Arcade Fire
Robots – Flight Of The Conchords
Banana Boat Song – Stan Freburg
Que Bueno Baila Usted – Ibrahim Ferrer
Little Girl – Vic Damone
Find Me A Primitive Man – Philandros
Sparky & The Magic Train Part 1 – Marvin Miller
“Onceupopna” returns storytelling to radio. This one is a hoot on so many levels
Great DJ – Ting Tings
Nobody’s Heart – Leontyne Price
Opera singers slumming it. It’s a musically dangerous idea, but Leontyne Price does prety well because she tells the story rather than sings the song. Here she is in operatic style BUT singing the music of one of the great popular songsmiths of the 20th century. As TFC keeps on saying, the divisions between musical genres are blurred at best.
Hot Stuff – Donna Summer
