Huliganov’s “Almost There”


Original YT playout date: 31 May 2008
Duration: 4:16

A rendition of the Andy Williams number “Almost There”. One of my perennial favorites.

My parents had an Andy Williams album and I used to listen to it as a boy and sing along to the songs quite a bit. So I tend to know some of this guy’s repetoire fairly well. Indeed I would describe myself as an Andy Williams fan and would be happy to visit his birthplace
one day. If there is one artist that deserves the london Philharmonic makeover more than any other (sorry Buddy, sorry Carpenters, I love you too) then this is the one it has to be, and it hasn’t happened yet. I don’t know if it’s in te pipeline, but if someone is in the know then maybe they can get this project going.

I remember once singing this number, or possibly “more” Read the rest of this entry

New World in the Morning


Original playout date: 15 December 2007

When I recorded this piece, which was an idea to put a bit of Elvis into the Roger Whittaker number, I weighed I think my record ever weight of 140 kgs. By the time I uploaded it I was about 130 kgs and looking a little slimmer. Treat this as the “before” photograph to compare with later videos…

Singing without introductions, the old Heatwave number. I was just singing along with it now and it gives me a very good benchmark as to how my voice has changed in the course of 11 years.

This is a staple of classical music lovers, regurgitated here by Huliganov who gets interrupted and goes all out of character at the end of the performance. Enjoy.

I sing the Carpenters’ classic. This technique of fading photos in and out is not as easy as it looks on Windows Movie Maker, and this is the first time I’ve used the technique.

Schoenster Herr Jesu!

It’s very fortuitous that I should be uploading this right now. It happens to fall on a Sunday in my programming and was also originally made on a Sunday and is just the right thing for a Sunday, but all this would be but a minor coincidence. A far greater coincidence is that I had found my old Evangelisches Kirchengesangbuch which was given to me by Detlef and Margot Loehde from the Selbstaendig Evangelisch-Lutherische Kirche in Hannover who I also knew during the six months I spent in Germany as a brand new Christian 35 years ago in 1983

Huliganov’s “Nessun Dorma!”


Original playout date: 25 August 2007
Duration: 6:25

Although Viktor likes napping in the afternoons, he is the first to admit that doing so can lead to difficulty getting to sleep on time at night, especially on Sundays, leading to more tiredness on Monday. Therefore, in an effort to throw off the Sunday afternoon lethargy he sings “None shall sleep” from Touringdot Dormabile’s opera “Pol Pot”.
