My choice today is a very personal one. In 1953 my old man wrote the theme tune for a 6 part BBC Cold War thriller series. The show was, of course, wiped decades ago (where's Levine when you need him? Very Happy ) although a film version starring Richard Conte was made in 1955. And courtesy of ebay I've recently even managed to purchase a copy of it for the first time.

Anyway moving back to the "feem toon", with its quirky nature the piece very quickly became popular and, having been released as a single, gained the distinction of being the first ever top ten hit to feature an electronic keyboard. So here are Frank Chacksfield's Tunesmiths, featuring Jack Jordan - clavioline. Little Red Monkey.

Some contemporary classical music to celebrate the 100th birthday of the great American Composer Elliott Carter. It's not often you get a composer in their 100th year still working on new material but Carter seems to be unstoppable. Carter's music isn't an easy listen but this astonishing piece composed when he was 98 is a good intro. So here's a radio performance of Caténaires performed by Pierre-Laurent Aimard.

And a comment about looking forward to Thom Yorke's cover version of "Pigeons in Flight," and eventual reinvention as a northern comedian.

I'm just thinking there should be more bands with names like Frank Chacksfield's Tunesmiths, because it sounds like the sort of name RTD would give a musical outfit from the 1950s. (This, of course, means that the C=O is entirely fictional and the creation of Mr Davies, which explains a lot).

Today's song from me has no real connection to that comment, though it does open up the possibility that Jimmy Carr is actually the illegitimate son of a singer-songwriter who first became famous in the 80s. Check out the resemblance, it's rather scary:

Lloyd Cole - She's A Girl And I'm A Man

And now for something completely different....


Church of the Poison Mind - culture Club

I was very fond of Culture Club, and this is one of my favourites of their songs - particularly because it was a big hit around the time of Longleat and it was on the radio many many times both on the way there and the way back - hence it is forever associated with Longleat in my mind.

Gah, I've got so much catching up to do on this thread. It'll probably be Sunday now. Does anyone know who many pages these forums max out on? I'll certainly need to update for page one of Volume 2.

I really want This Town by The Bees for today, but couldn't spot it. So it's a testimony to Ray Davies's songwriting skill from the period when he tried to pretend he had no songwriting skills

No idea, but we'll certainly run *part one* for a while. It's definitely proved one of the most popular, and most interesting, threads since the doors to OW opened! Smile

As it's Saturday, and most people won't be at work, here's a song that's very not safe for work:

Jarvis Cocker - Running The World


WARNING - CONTAINS VERY STRONG LANGUAGE!

Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit

There is a chance that before I get the opportunity to go back through the pages that I'll repeat something. If I do, just give me a firm shake and a slap in the ribcage.

I would've loved to have been at Woodstock. Or, more likely, I'd love to be at the fantasy woodstock that has been built up by all the people that have claimed to have been there over the years.

This is my favourite single piece of music in the whole world. Better than Lux Aeterna (the theme from requiem for a dream, which was used for Requiem for a tower (the LOTR film adverts) which I posted early on in this thread). Better than Rhapsody in Blue which I won't be posting as it's too long for Youtube. Sad Better than the Pirates music.

If I could only have one piece of music it would be this one.

That would be good. That's the one without all the mud, yeah?

Incidentally, I'm off to see iLiKETRAiNS tonight and am going to participate in a scheme not at all dissimilar to the Wrinkly tape-loop you suggested* - the band are taking a box of home-made compilation CDs 'round Europe with them, and you** put yours in and take one out at random. I've just finished making mine, and cheers go to this thread for suggesting a couple of bands (and, indeed, one actual song - 'Postcards From Italy') that made the final cut.




*To a... less than enthusiastic... response, sadly. Still, this Thread of Aceness is a very similar kettle of ball-games. Hurrah!

**Provided you hang around on their forum and so know about this, presumably...

Indeed - you're missing one or two words at the start of the title I believe Councillor. affraid

Today from me, here's the modern version of a great early 80's song that Marc Almond performs with Jools Holland. Love the orchestration!

Marc Almond - Say Hello Wave Goodbye.
