seasons in the sun was a top fave singalong of mine :D


I must confess I remember the morning I would NOT leave the house for the school bus until I played that song.

Don't know how it was in the UK, but all my friends believed he was dying. Odd how young kids would embrace the tragic.

You're a Lady was Peter Skellern, Pushbike Song was Mungo Jerry.

Puff the Magic Dragon is one I remember as a small child, but we didn't get a radio till after I was 5.

Christ was Paper Tiger that bad...........

I drove my old mum mad playing that song over and over again, I knew every word by heart.
I remember when dad chucked the old radiogram out and that single was still on the record player..............it was so scratched it wasn't worth saving.
I haven't heard that song for donkey's years...I would like to hear it again just for the nostalgia really..............

I do remember when i was a young'n my mother took me to see the Beatles films,probably Hard Days Night and Help.however my first memories are of music on the Radio, and it was always Cliff and The Shadows,these memories are always tinged with much sadness for me as my mother sadly died in 1966 aged 31,even now i still like Cliff and The Shadows .The classics such as Apache still sound great to me,probably not cool nowadays but have seen Hank Marvin on tour and we also went to the Shadows final tour a couple of years ago.

The first song I think I was conscious of was probably something like Telstar which came out in 1960, the year I was born, I suppose I must have been about 3 or 4 when I noticed it.

The first record I bought was Terry Dactyl and the Dinosaurs, Seaside Shuffle, not a very cool one I'm afraid.

The first song I was aware of was Bright Eyes by Art Garfunkel. My dad told me that he had written it and that it was him singing it on the radio. Being 5 years old, I believed him and went into school telling people that my dad was famous :oops:
