Dearest Princess Amelia, I must apologise for being a little lazy with posts to your blog, the last one was more than three months ago. So I thought that I would start it back up with a nonsense lyric that I love. The singer is Barry Mann and the song is all about the bomp bah bomp bah bomp and it is called “Who Put The Bomp”. I hope that you and all the people in Goddarwil enjoy it and find the time to dance to it!

Dearest Princess Amelia, I know that you have been learning about the Great Fire of London and that you have been to a firework display and as Saturday is Bonfire Night. I also want to say very well done for winning the pumpkin competion with your 1666 pumpkin!

I thought I would share some fire related songs with you. Here is a fire top ten, I hope that you enjoy them.

Dearest Princess Amelia, your Mummy and Daddy told me a few days ago that you had told them what your three favourite words are. They said that love, happy and hope are your favourite words. Well I believe that is a fantastic set of words to have as favourites and if you don’t mind I would like to borrow them and make them my favourites as well. If you always consider love, happiness and hope in everything that you do then I believe that you will have a wonderful life and you will make life better for everyone that you come into contact with too. To me you are and will always be a very loving, very happy girl who has a heart full of hope. As your Odd Father I have to say please don’t ever stop being that girl, even when you are much older! Anyway I thought that I would try to sum up those three words of yours in three songs.

So to make you feel a little happy there is a fabulous song called, simply, “Happy”. Finally I thought for a long while about the most hopeful song that I know and it came down to a simple choice in the end. It is one of my favourite ever songs from one of my very favourite singers it is Johnny Nash with “I Can See Clearly Now”. I hope that you enjoy these three songs and that maybe they stay with you, particularly in times when maybe you might feel a little bit sad. Just remember that sometimes it is OK to feel like that but never forget that there is always hope and that you will always be loved.

amelia sign

Dearest Princess Amelia. Your Daddy told me that you left a sign outside your room this week asking him and Mummy to stay out. I hope that maybe you were making presents for them which is why you wanted the door shut. Is that true?

Anyway I thought that after making that sign you might like some songs about doors that are shut 🙂

I hope that you enjoy them.

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.

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.
