When music and lyrics come together to make something just wonderful :)
With my eclectic taste spanning the 50's to the present day, I'm spoilt for choice, so starting way back with The Platters -
The Great Pretender
One of their best
Only You - Though I did love Roy Orbison's version just as much :)
A little smoke in your eye's always a good excuse :)
My Prayer only matched by Roy Orbison but still will opt for this version
one in a million :)
I'm blessed with more than my fair share of those :)
ending with a little Twilight time :) :) :)
As someone now in his 6th decade I continue to refuse to grow old gracefully. Having played guitar in rock n' roll band's since being a teenager, my enthusiasm and passion show no sign of diminishing with my band 'the VinylZoo' currently recording their debut album 'Welcome to the Age'. The other three band members are all 55+ and share my eagerness to get our original (not covers) music heard. The Covid pandemic has obviously stymied our progress at this time nevertheless we continue to write and collaborate albeit remotely and hope that when normality returns, we may actually have better material to record. I hope my post generates some interest as I'd love to know who is playing, singing, producing and as long as you believe you are relevant and still have something to say, then age is merely a number, bit like 4/4......
Hello everyone thought of my music tastes. How about we do some themes and topics on music titles.
I used to create tapes the old c60 or 120 mixed and all on a theme.
Or a topic. Did one on Love all Soul songs. In the title. Just for fun helps the mental memory and good to share care.
Start with Summer all the songs with Summer in the title. As we are in Summer .
Here are my favourite ones in my Collection.
Summertime Blues - Eddie Cochran
Summer Love - Andy Williams
It's Summer - Billy Fury Orchestra instrumental two songs.
Summer Place - Percy Faith and Orchestra
Summer set - Acker Bilk.
Summer In The City -Lovin'Spoonful Anyone got any more .
I so wish I had discovered this wonderful singer a lot earlier than I did. She performed with Fairport Convention and was the only guest to appear with Led Zeppelin in 1971.
A troubled soul, she lost her life way too early to a brain haemorrhage. I am of course talking about the late great Sandy Denny.
Her voice is sublime and phrasing superb. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSABfJWqh38 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFnQaFVHdsE&list=RDRSABfJWqh38&index=7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPq5ijmY6wQ&list=RDRSABfJWqh38&index=5
