Thanks to the band this evening, Tom on bass, Brendan on drums and not too sure if he managed to whip it out, but Eddie on harmonica.
Thanks to those who lead on some of the numbers – Les B, Mark, Joe, Carole, Diane and Margo did a Doo Ron Ron, Les B and Eddie were in Blue Bayou (what happened to the “pause” at the end?). Tommy F was Bad Bad Leroy Brown, Joe and Graham P Enjoyed Themselves whilst they were still in the pink, Carole, Gillian and Anne Always Had Something To Remind Them, thank you girls but we’ll forget that one !! Eddie and Brian were Trying To Catch The Wind, Graham P, Brendan, Carole and Anne were Debbie Harry, and Graham and Joy Hit the Fever Road Jack.
Short but very good STARTIME, so it’s thanks to
- Carole gave us Billy Swan’s I Can Help. No1 in 1974.
- Joe with his assistant Dave sang another song from the era when they could write them - You're nobody's sweetheart now. Joe said it was from the 1930’s but it was actually written in 1924. The song has been recorded and performed by many including Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, The Mills Brothers, Bing Crosby, Doris Day and our old friend Leon Redbone. It has also featured in no less than 12 films.
- Mark sang one of his dad’s favourites I Wish I Could Sprechen Sie Deutsch. He was only short of an Oompah Band. Oh, and the ability to speak German. I thought the song was much older but it seems it is only from the early 80s. Perhaps a long time ago for some, recent history for others.
It is Diane and Dave’s do at the Crown on Thursday this week.
