All I ask of you


Original YT playout date: 25 December 2008
Duration: 4:50

Yes, it’s another musical muckaround with Sophie, as we deconstruct the song “All I ask of you”, Llord “Scruffy” Webber’s remake of the song “I don’t talk to strangers”. Yes I know it’s not the Phantom but Raoul that sings it in the thing, but frankly I don’t care! Enjoy.

Maid in Denver (or “You fill up my Minibar”)


Original YT playout date: 25 December 2008
Duration: 3:28

I snatched a few moments back in the Grosvenor House hotel to do some of the singing I usually don’t get the privacy to do, and this turned out to be no exception! As least she didn’t start joining in, although that would have been a laugh. What she may have thought of the “let me lay down beside you” just as she was making the bed I have no idea, but I didn’t plan it!

Adliberratum


Original YT playout date: 25 December 2008

A little ad libbing. I sometimes just make up songs as I go along. My daughter has started doing the same, and she also does this impromptu dance routine. It may seem haphazard and comedic, but at least it’s a way of getting the old creative juices flowing.

You can probably tell how badly out of practice I am, and how modest the instrument is, but what the heq.

Re When all we need is love


 

Original YT playout date: 21 December 2008
Duration: 5:13

In the olden days when YouTube was a Community thing first and foremost, we had a “Re” function for video reponses. These have long disappeared and all the links have gone. All that is left is the “Re” in the title of the video.

Wo mei wangji – ni wangji wo! 我没忘记你忘记我


Original YT playout date: 30 November 2008

“I haven’t forgotten. It’s you who forgot me! You can’t even pronounce my name right. It shows everything you ever told me was lies – let’s see what you’re going to tell me today.

You told me you were going to come and see me in a couple of days, but that was over a year ago. It’s not easy waiting more than 365 days. I’m not in your heart at all. Give my love back to me.”

Sophie and I perform this song which I was introduced to in my youth by a Malaysian Chinese friend Bee Chew Yoo.

My thanks go to Martin Chen of Strategia China for helping me to an mp3 and to the lyrics of this song.

我没忘记你忘记我
连名字你都说错
证明你一切都是在骗我
看今天你怎么说

你说过两天来看我
一等就是一年多
三百六十五个日子不好过
你心里根本没有我
把我的爱情还给我.

Running Out of Air


Original YT playout date: 25 October 2008
Duration: 4:44

Another video remake of a Jo McCafferty video. Her songs probably qualify as the most underrated in the world, as they are barely known and yet, as you can see, of tremendous quality. Both the music and the poetry will go straight to the spot. Please pass it on and get Jo some of the attention her music deserves!

“If I say” by Jo McCafferty – video remix


Original YT playout date: 13 August 2008
Duration: 4:27

I was given permish by my talk radio friend and not exactly unsigned artist (she has her own label, but if Universal, Sony et al are interested, who knows?) Jo McCafferty who wrote and also performs this lovely song, among numerous others which you can find on her channel http://www.youtube.com/neosome and you can also see her talent on the Sunday night NTTBS shows on my channel.

I remixed the video a little bit, so you can go and see the original prior to the remix over on her channel! I’ll link to it off the video. There are also ways that you can buy the mp3s from her website.
