Part of the pleasure in spending your later years near where you grew up....is bumping into friends from 60 years and more ago.......\i constantly do this in Bulwell.....old school pals from the 50s a

Moved into our new home today,,now sat quietly apart from a little jig when the music of Dr Hook gets too much to sit still, The site seems to have got back to its friendly ways,,so I'm back,,

I listen to "Always" and I'm thinking of fabulous Mrs WW, from happy courting days to the sweetest honeymoon, through all the years, all the sunsets, all the sunrises, all the hard times, near disaste

Knights in White Satin references a sonata by Clementi but you have to listen closely to hear it.

Whiter Shade of Pale is obviously derived from Bach and you don't have to listen hard at all.

Question then becomes, which piece?  I lean towards Bach's Arioso.  Not sure of the BWV number.  or Air on a G string.

ben was there a 60s song that mentions Kings rd sung by a group back then i can not remember the group fits right in with the swinging 60s.

Tom Petty did a song called Kings Road but that was 1981

Dick a Dum Dum was a 1969 hit by Des O'Connor and it referenced Kings Rd

Since I mentioned the Official Monster Raving Loony Party elsewhere on here, I thought it might be appropriate to dig these out..

Their joint leader, at one point, was Catmando... A cat.

 

Cats make excellent politicians. They're egocentric, totally selfish and concerned only about what they can get out of any given situation.

 

The only difference is, cats are quite honest about their motivations and intentions, making no attempt whatsoever to hide them. If only we could say the same of humans...:blink:

I think they did another one after that called Homburg Hat or something, never did reach the same heights after their first record.

Homburg, released in September 1967, got to number 6 in the UK charts

They did some great albums after WSOP and toured extensively in the USA.

Albums of note were Shine on Brightly and Salty Dog
