A rare Saturday afternoon at the football was supposed to prepare me for the last Saturday in July and all that came with it. My team (the Bulldogs if you didn’t know) was down and out, then came back with remarkable spirit, before succumbing to a West Coast Eagles outfit that kept its heads … just !
It’s only football, so let’s not get too carried away.
The music soothed all the pain.
The Big Beat – Fats Domino
L.O.V.E. – Nat King Cole
One of Nat’s last recordings and what a super one it is too.
Blow Up The Pokies – The Whitlams
Mamou, Mardi Gras Hot-Step -Jambalaya Cajun Band
La Mer – Le Swing Extraordinaire
Tico Tico – Duck Musique
Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah – Alan Sherman
This is on the first record that was ever bought for me. I would have been 5 and didn’t really understand it, but I knew it was funny.
Kids In America – Kim Wilde
The daughter of 50s rock and roll star Marty Wilde, Kim made her own way very successfully.
Lazybones – Hoagy Carmichael
Hoagy (a dimnutive of Hoagland) is a particular favourite of mine, but his recordings are a little hard to get hold of these days. I have finally succeeded so expect a lot of HC magic in the coming months. This was one of his own compositions with lyrics from Johnny Mercer.
Lazybones – Paul Robeson
Same song, different treatment from one of the great voices of the last century.
Dream Come True – Brand New Heavies
Cross The Track – Maceo & The Macks
I’ve Got You Under My Skin – Margaret Urlich
Big 10 Inch Record – Bull Moose Johnson
I just play ’em …
Dancing – Archie Roach
Old Fashioned Love – George Melly
Pass The Football – Raymond Jaramillo McLeod
From the musical “Wonderful Town” but the issue of those who can pass a football getting a head start in life is universal .
Perfidia – Linda Ronstadt
How Shall I See You Through My Tears – Sasha Allen & Steven Cutts (Soundtrack – “Camp“)
Whistlin’ Past The Graveyard – Tom Waits
Dirty Dancin’ – The Product
Upside Down –Paloma Faith
