With Just A Hint Of Amelia

bowie-43

Dearest Princess Amelia, one day you might find a singer, musician, artist, writer or perhaps a film star that you really, really like. You may never even get to meet them but that person will mean very much to you, not as much as your Mummy, Daddy and brothers and sisters and your friends. But they will mean a lot to you. Not everyone finds someone like that but I did.

David Bowie performing at the Hammersmith Apollo

Many years ago in 1972 when I was just 13 I saw David Bowie on television singing a song called “Starman“. From that day I became a fan of Mr Bowie and even after all that time I still am. But on Monday myself and all the thousands of people across the world who like David Bowie had some very bad news. He went to heaven on Monday although he was only 69. Even when you’re old, like me, it’s ok to cry sometimes.

I hope that you do find an artist that means as much to you as David Bowie does to me. But in the meantime here a few of my favourite David Bowie songs for you to enjoy.

Funny-Christmas-22

Dearest Princess Amelia your Uncle Bill has been a bit lazy with blog posts recently so I thought I would try to kick-start things again with a new Christmas song. It’s sung by Frankie and the Heartstrings with support from the wonderfully talented Edwyn Collins. The song is called (Too Right) It’s Christmas” I hope that you like it, especially the fan video that shows with it!

Pets-Celebrate-Christmas-17

Aunty Catherine and me also hope that you and everyone in Godderwil has a fabulous Christmas this year too! To help you all do that I have added two extra bonus songs. One from Amy Winehouse and a second which is one of my most favourite Christmas songs ever, reggae singer Jackie Edwards’ version of “White Christmas”!

Dearest Princess Amelia one of my recent blog posts for you was about songs with nonsense lyrics. I think I have now discovered a song for you with the most bonkers, gobbledygook, silly nonsense lyrics that I have ever heard. The song is a doo-wop tune was released even before I was born, so it is very, very old. It is called “Rubber Biscuit” and it is performed by a group called the Chips. I’m not sure that I would like to eat a rubber biscuit and I don’t think that you would either.

I think that you will be able to make up your own silly words and noises for this song and I don’t believe that anyone will be able to tell the difference. What do you think? The song came out in 1956 and sadly it didn’t get into the pop charts. But it did get played on the radio a lot. Underneath the video I have copied the lyrics to the song, well at least what they might be written down as. I think you should ask Mummy and Daddy to read those words to you. Next time I see you I will let you tell me how well they both did!

Dearest Princess Amelia, for this post I would like to introduce you one of the most successful pop songwriting partnerships that there has ever been; Meet Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman. Over the years they have written many, many hits for a lot of artists. Some would say they have come close to writing some of the most perfect pop songs that there have ever been and I think that may be true. So I would like you to sing, dance, shout and stomp your feet to some of their greatest songs. See if you can make the ground shake in Godderwil! Enjoy yourself listening to Mud, Sweet, Suzi Quatro, Smokie, Racey, New World and Toni Basil.

Dearest Princess Amelia it’s been a long while since I last posted anything for you. I hope that you and the Royal Family of Godderwil can forgive me.

Marmalade

 

I went with your Daddy to see Paul Weller playing a gig in York last night and he told me that you thought it was funny that Mr Weller had been in a band called the Jam and you said that you asked why it wasn’t called marmalade. So I thought I would give you a few bands named after things that you might make a sandwich with. So I hope that you enjoy Bread, the Jam and Marmalade!

Dearest Princess Amelia I thought that you might like a blog post about nonsense song lyrics. Songs that might have been written by your Daddy. This will be the first nonsense lyric post of many I hope. I also hope that you like the song, it is called “Rama Lama Ding Dong” and it’s by Rocky Sharpe and the Replays in 1979. The song was originally by an American group called the Edsels and has been covered by many groups, including one that has a rather nonsense name; Showaddywaddy. I hope you and your Mummy and daddy enjoy a little Rama Lama Singalong now 🙂 I have added some funny versions of the song too.

Just to help you Mummmy and daddy and all the people in Godderwil to sing along here are the words.

RAMA LAMA DING DONG

Oh oh oh oh
I got a girl named Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
She’s everything to me
Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
I’ll never set her free
For she’s mine, all mine
Oh oh oh oh
I got a girl named Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong,
She’s fine to me,
Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
You don’t believe that she’s mine, all mine
I love her,
Love her, love her so.
That I’ll never, never let her go.
You may be certain she’s mine, all mine,
She’s mine all of the time.
Oh I got a girl named Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
She’s everything to me
Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
I’ll never set her free
For she’s mine, all mine

ROCKY
