... as I was compiling last months song and links effort (which saw this wiblog climb 2 places up the wibstats) there were a few songs that just missed inclusion through lack of information/lyrics and a few links that turned up a few days after it would have been good to mention them.
the songs included:
Keith Donnelly's 'Bungee Jumping For Jesus',
A few songs that I don't even know the title of - one of which contains the lyrics "Bright Phoebe arises so high in the sky, with her red rosy cheeks and her sparkling eye",
Songs from Bagpuss - coming soon to the Gower Folk Festival - we'll be there,
Chickens in the Garden a popular wedding song, popularised it seems by my dad,
and 'Skin' by Leon Rosselson made popular by Roy Bailey.
another link for that very long Matty Groves entry. This is the Sid Kipper version.
2) a bizarre animation for 'I Am Stretched on Your Grave'.
3) blame Nessa for this, she asked what the hell 'The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins' was all about. See for yourself.
4) Well, talking of poitless songs we sung round campfires, someones going to try for a summer hit with one of them. And that is every bit as scary as it seems. If you thought you had it bad with Bombalurina, you'd better turn the radio off when you hear the strains of "A Pizza Hut, a Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut"
They say it ain't over 'till the fat lady sings, but I'm on a diet, and I can't generally sing in tune. However, as no-one can see me at the moment, or indeed hear me, you can imagine me being 22st and belting out something very tuneful - I'll leave the choice of song to you, I've said enough on that score.
31 songs in May is ended.
Normal service should resume tomorrow.
