Day 18 – A Song from the year you were born.

Well I don’t want to be reminded of how old I am, so instead I’m going to post a Song from the year that my Mum often tells people she was born (She wasn’t). 

Nat King Cole – Mona Lisa.

Day 17 – A song you’d sing a due with someone on Karaoke. 

Ok, I do like to sing at home, much to the disdain of passing neighbours. This song is one of my favourite and I actually dreamt once that I sang it on stage with the singer, Alison Moyet. 

Alison Moyet – That Ole devil called love.

Day 14 –  A song you’d love to be played at your wedding. 

Well, this is purely hypothetical, but I do like something impressive, like a fanfare. I also like a powerful organ (Now please, that wasn’t a euphemism, get your mind out of the gutter).

Here is my choice: The Finale from Camille Saint-Saens Organ Symphony

A Carolling Coterie

I wanted to share with you a little video of me and a coterie of friends who have formed a very small choir. My friends are part of the Cats Protection league and every year they gather around train stations, local vets and garden centres, sing carols and collect money for their charity. Last year and this year they asked me to join them. 

I hope you liked this video. Whether you find it stimulating or not, I’ll leave that to you. 🙂 

I hope this works….

This is the version by Steeleye Span for comparison.

I apologise, but it appears I cannot post a video uploaded on Facebook onto WordPress… Sorry. It may be that it was because it wasn’t my video but my friend’s instead…

Day 13 – A Song you like from the ’70’s 

I like a lot of songs from the 1970’s is hard to narrow it down.

I have chosen this one from December 1973

WIZZARD – I Wish It could be Christmas Every Day 

And, by the way, I don’t! One day a year is quite enough thank you VERY much. 

Have a great one. 🙂

I am so delighted that so many of my blogging pals are taking part in this now. You all have wide tastes in music. I tend to like the older music that has stood the test of time. Today will be no exception. 

Day 12 – A Song from your Pre-teen years.

Here is a song that I absolutely loved as a youngster.

Blondie – Heart of Glass.

A few of us are taking part in this song challenge. It is great fun, if you fancy playing along, then give it a try. 

Day 8 – A Song about Drugs or Alcohol.

Hmm, well due to some personal circumstances that have left my family bereft, I will have no part of drugs whatsoever. So, thinking about alcohol, this song came to mind.

Whiskey in the Jar – This version is the traditional song performed by the folk irish band, the Dubliners.

And here is Thin Lizzie for their version.
