Do you remember the tap dancing Roly Polys?    I was talking with a relatively new lady after church this morning and she told us that her mum was the very chubby small lady who often came on to dance at the end of their performance!  The conversation started when we were discussing who could do 'the splits'.   We do talk about lots of different subjects.... slywink

Many years ago we went to St.eulalia, Ibiza, our holiday rep was a tallish slim blonde who told us the same about her mother. During our stay we later saw her in a rep's show or maybe it was a karaoke where she performed a brilliant rendition of 'Perfect' I wonder if it is the same lady?

Margie, i didn't say that all the songs had a story,but you could understand the lyrics, maybe not 'Fleetwood Mac 's "Albatross" . Thanks for the compliment, but I did remember the Max Bygrave song (i entered planet earth in 54).

I'll ask her.  She does have a very good singing voice and she is blonde.   She isn't slim but there again,  age often thickens the waistline!   I heard her telling someone that she had worked in other countries - not sure what she did, though.  Interesting.......

You are just a young Whippersnapper trogg.............in 62 ish............you could get some great music on 'Penguin's' juke box,for only 3d,,,The young ones   our Cliff,,,Loca-motion  little Eva''....'''Cant help falling in love'' Elvis,,,Lets Dance...Chris Montez....''Teenage idol''  Ricky Nelson,,,

and often  your last 3d..was spent on........Fanlight Fanny.......by Clinton Ford...........lol

 

I remember mostly from  a bit later..  Black is Black (Los Bravos), Papa's Got a Brand New Bag (James Brown)  Summer in the City ( Lovin' Spoonful) etc.. but I probably frequented the place on and off from around 1963 to about 1969.. which was the period when my life largely revolved around Boowul.. 360 Club obviously.. but also Horse Shoe, King Billy, 'old' Lord Nelson in Hempshill Lane and so on..  And of course the lukewarm 'coffee' in the glass cup and saucer that was dished up in the Penguin... dreadful stuff in retrospect..  I'm trying to recall how many 'pin table' machines there were.. Either 1, 2 or 3... i think.. that narrows it down a bit...:laugh:

and the witchdoctor  said,   "Ohh Eeee  ooowooo argh argh,  bing bang walla wallah bing bang"   repeat

Conclusion....  Oooh wang walla walla bing bang!

Spelling and pronunciation mostly optional.

 

Nah whats gobbledegook abaht that? 

 

Makes more sense than a lot of politicians these days.   :biggrin:

 

On a 'Point of Order' Loppy.. I reckon it was 'Ee, aa, oo-aa aa ting tang walla walla bing bang.. . not that I'm picky you understand....  ;)

 

Another great song with deep and meaningful lyrics, which I think Kev expressed a liking for last time I mentioned it.. was the deeply poetical 'Zabadak' by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch...  Honourable mention too for Roy Orbison's epic.. 'Ooby Dooby'.

DJ360 I must have seen you about during those years as they were my favourite pubs as well. Your right about the coffee it was rubbish, I bet you also went in Bulwell Youth Club when it was first opened in the old building at the rear, great times.

Not so much in the Youth Club Mick. What I recall was like a school Gym I did a few Discos for them later on.  Terrible acoustics as I recall.. but fun was had by all.

Doo Wah Diddy was a hit here for Manfred Mann.. not Herman's Hermits. The original was by The Exciters.. a US band who also first recorded 'Tell Him'.. which was the first hit for our own Billy Davis.

 

 

Zip A Dee Doo Dah was originally from Disney's film 'Song of the South'..in 1946, but was a hit here in 1963 for Bob. B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans. A Phil Spector 'Wall of Sound' recording.

 

 

Herman's Hermits.. like all UK bands of the time.. covered a number of US hits.. but their biggest hit was 'I'm Into Something Good'.. which they 'borrowed' from US girl group, 'The Cookies'.

 

 

 

The Cookies were also responsible for the original of 'Chains'.. which the Beatles did on their first album.

I saw an interview once with Pater Noone from Herman's Hermits. He said that they were once more popular then the Rolling Stones! I don't know what he was on but I'd like some of it!

Awoke to a frozen tent early this mornming so I went out fro a bike ride in the dark. Yes I know...I'm bonkers. Came back and had a quick breakfast before going out into the moors for a long walk. The day turned out fine and sunny but a bit on the cold side, with a chilly breeze. I have just finished cooking an Ethiopian style meal for tea and I am looking forward to it, so without further ado let me say that photos will be available of the moors, possibly tomorrow,  if any turn out ok.

Compo, what on earth possessed you to stay in a tent overnight? Especially  where you live.

Compo lets see if the cold has caused any cognitive impairment:
