We had the Labour Party Songbook in the shop this year, containing the sheet music for the Red Flag and many other folk songs from around Britain and songs popular with the working classes at the time of publication.
I did say to my wife at that pub in Hambleden when you were ordering the food that if word got out there was a left-wing adversary - from Birmingham of all places - in the village gastropub, we'd never leave it alive...
Not your usual M meets F type pop song.
UPDATE the computer data tells me the mix was done in January 14 but it wasn't a very good mix. Iron Maiden follows Enigma 'Sadeness part 1'. Like a bad Yorkshire pudding mix. In fact I think that's what I'll call it.
Today's earworm is a John Rutter jobbie that I have to play for a choir. And it sounds so very very similar to another JR carol that I'm worried I might launch into that one instead. I think he's running out of ideas!

Got it on now. The original version with Richard Burton and Justin Hayward.
I'm listening to another old chestnut 'Wasted Country' by Gail Anne Dorsey, which I got in a pile of 7 inch singles I won from a competition on now-defunct Radio Wyvern over 25 years ago.
Today however it has been 'Working Girl' by Rita Macneill. When it came out, I was a working boy at a cash and carry in Shrewsbury and one of the girls said 'Dave you must hear this song, it was on Top of the Pops last night and it was by Rita McGovern'. I looked all through Our Price for Rita McGovern but to no avail. Then in work it came on Radio Shropshire and Maggie said 'that's the song'. I listened to the deejay afterwards and he said Rita Macneill!
always reminds me of Jason at school, 'if you like beans and bananas, and getting caught in the rain'. How would you expect working class nine year olds to know what a pina colada is???Feg wrote:Escape aka the Pina colada song......don't ask
Wasn't as big a hit (in Britain anyway) as Escape.
You should do a U3A piano learners club. No under 18's guaranteed.
got a really eerie one in my head now, 'Torch' by Soft Cell. With those chord progressions and Marc Almond's slightly off key wail it has to be one of the eeriest songs from the 80s, along with Ghost Town. The antidote to Phil Collins or C*ck aching and Waterman.
