Thank you two that is class. I just love those big routines - Stayin Alive is perfect for the clips.

I underwent training in CPR last year and the advice was to use "Stayin Alive" as the tempo for the chest compressions. Jeez - its hard enough to locate a defibrillator without also having to find a ghetto blaster with the right CD track.

You see I was playing the part of the patient being saved and it would spoil the whole illusion if I was to be wailing like that.

I haven't turned off that site for 4 days.
For me the outstanding section is the songs of 1950, 1951 and 1952
That was the time when songs had real melody, the words cound be heard clearly, and the singers could really sing

Among the songs of 1950 the outstanding one is "Harbour Lights" written by our own Jimmy Kennedy from Omagh, who was among the greatest writers of popular songs of all time. Jimmy wrote "South of the Border", "Teddy Bears Picnic", The Isle of Capri", "My Prayer", "Love is like a violin" "April in Portugal", "The Hokey Cokey" and quite literally hundreds of other hits

You can read more here about this remarkable fella here -

You'll see he was buried in Taunton in Somerset. Of course it was all very difficult. They put his left leg in . . . .

Micheál,

Thank you for posting that link. My mother had the most remarkable voice and sang all day long. Those were her regular favourites. We Hokey Cokeye'd and Red Sailed our way through the rough 50's and 60's. It didn't matter that we had no money and little food - we had remarkable singing sessions and dancing sessions in our old flagged kitchen, they have left those warm lasting memories!
Love your zany sense of humour! ...his left leg in....... ;)
