When i was about 13/14 my bother was in the RAF he had a Gerrard record player, which he left instructions for me not to touch. Well each Sunday morning when he was not on leave, i would go into the front room and to my hearts content play very loud music and of cause  sing at the top of my voice. (or make a noise)   

Here's Five songs that i would play!!!

Catch a falling Star     Perry Como

Love me Tender           Elvis Presley

Crawfish                        Elvis Presley     from the film   King Carole

Secret Love                   Doris Day

Deadwood Stage          Doris Day

Pretty sure Bimbo was sung by Perry Como, Mary1947.  Been known to be wrong though.
