I think I would have missed my train in order to stand in that crowd. Possibly the greatest song ever written both musically and lyrically.
(Somewhere deep deep down in the core of the most hardened music hater, there's a Pink Floyd fan trying to get out.)
There's a public piano against the 'glass wall' behind the crowd.
A magic moment .
The unique voice of the late great Nat King Cole with the song Mona Lisa.
Back when the Bee Gees were a proper band.
Great song. And of course … it's Babs … one of the all time greats.
I don't know that I'm really a country and western fan, but you can't deny it's produced some great singers, particularly lady singers, and whatever else it never lacks melody. I suppose I like this song because it's a bit cynical, and its delivery is great.
I think Mr Sinatra was singing from the heart on this one. Pretty much made it his song.
The unique voice and humour of the legendary Eartha Kitt.
Kinda scary to see this, it's so bloody dated. Even more scary is that I remember it was a Nr 1 back in 1961, (I was a schoolboy then, learning about the magic of Newton's Laws and the f****** Corn Laws. Not that bad a song though, and John Leyton went on to do some acting as I remember.)

Better explained as a
I was never sure I understood the lyrics of this song, but suspected there was meaning to it. Now I think I get it.
For that I give thanks to the laconics … even though I know they're far from being Spartans.
"Go tell the Spartans, thou who passest by.
That here, true to their beliefs … we lie."
A song with a lot of heart in it ….
Hard to believe this was released 50 years ago !!! Some of the prophecies are interesting in that they seem of have exaggerated the time scale if anything, 10,000 years or so looks pretty optimistic these days.
Well set though against clips from the 1926 film Metropolis.
What a voice !! … and what a sad story for her ….
