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
