Tonight’s show brought to you by “Llwyth” – which can mean tribe (sorta kinda) as well as a load … as in a “load of rubbish” or …
Anyhoo, it’s the title of a Welsh language show featuring the ups and downs of gay life that will be playing at the Edinburgh Festival. As one reviewer put it: ” it has more climaxes than the average porn movie”.
Have a look … it has subtitles… or read all about it.
Nawr, dyma’r rhaglen …
Everybody Have Fun Tonight –Wang Chung
Not their hit (“Dance Hall Days“) but another bit of Wang Chungery.
I Say A Little Prayer – David Michael Johnson
Follia D’Amore /Madness Of Love – Raphael Gualazzi
It’s time to get back on the Eurovision horse. This came second in Düsseldorf at this year’s ESC. The clip has the version that is almost totally in Italian – far superior to the bilingual mish mash in the contest itself.
Party Doll – Bobby Knox
Gay White Way – Rita Hayworth
Who could resist this song from the 1942 movie “My Gal Sal” ?
Sister Madly – Crowded House
Virgin Mountain –Peter von Poehl
Mama Help Me – Edie Brickell & New Bohemians
Colonel Bogey – National Band Of New Zealand
And The Same To You – Dudley Moore
Now That We Have Found Love – Heavy D & The Boyz
Kad Si Bala Male Mare – Eurocantica
Kicks – Jolie Jenkins, Audrey Kinnear & Lynnette Perks
Tenderly – Whirimako Black
This Is The One – The Stone Roses
A truthful take on the vexed issue of love. Jake Thackray was a one off, a voice that’s unforgetable and a style without peer.
I Love New York – Madonna
Hey Boy ! Hey Girl ! Louis Prima & Keely Smith
Volare – Dean Martin
Another Eurovision song, this one came THIRD in 1958 before becoming the most successful ESC ditty of all time. Deano’s version was the mega hit, but the orginal is still the best by a country mile and/or kilometre.
“I think that a dream like that will never return; I painted my hands and my face blue, then was suddenly swept up by the wind and started to fly in the infinite sky.”
Carioca – Monica & The Moochers
Forever – Punk Ninja
