Which in my view remains the best way to interest kids in music…

Christmas family musical muckaround


Original playout date: 9 December 2007
Duration: 15:39

This is not exactly seasonal for the time I am uploading this to this blog, but I am simply putting my old films up here in order and right now I am 10 years and six months behind the original play out times. I hope that this figure will get lower and lower.

Sophie is just lipsynching mainly to this one, but it is a great fun musical muckaround anyhow, and one that seems to have been watched and appreciated a surprising amount, see the stats below.

Huliganov’s “Sandy”


Original playout date: 28 July 2007
Duration: 2:40

With the trademark random visual effects and the hammed up overacting, Huliganov murders yet another of my childhood favourites.

That song’s never gonna be the same again!


Playout date: 23 May 2007
Duration: 3:01

Now that they are not with us any longer, not just the song but also this film is never gonna be the same again. It is extremely difficult even to rewatch my mother on this, another dimension to just looking at a photo. Seriously you need to get a lot of video of loved ones in case you lose them, but don’t expect to have the strength to watch it often.

The Huliganovs do Bollywood!


Playout date: 6 May 2007
Duration: 6:43

It was the time when Richard Gere and Shilpa Shetty fell foul of the Indian authorities for a public kiss, so my wife and I decided to celebrate Bollywood with our very own version of “Dil Hai tumhaara”

Sara and Daddy sing on the balcony


Playout date: 5 May 2007
Duration: 8:33

Everybody is happy, on the balcony with Sarkie from London, my daughter from my first marriage. She came to see her half sister and so we had a bit of a song. Not long before Sophie resorts to pulling faces in the background.

Another musical muckaround with Sophie, trying to interest her in musical classics, but Mozart’s Queen of the Nght is not on the menu tonight. Chick chick chick chick chicken is on the menu instead, and duck.

Random Environmentally Inspired Music #1


Playout date: 29 March 2007
Duration: 9:58

Riding though Pomerania at the time of a beautiful orange sunset, I feel like a song, but fearing the wrath of YT if I sing anything already composed by anyone else. I just sing extemporaneously, whatever comes into my head, inspired by the landscape. Purely random notes, like a song.

This has to be the worst ever rendition of this song, which is a hardwr one than it looks, in my defence. But best to treat this one as a comedy and Musical Muckaround with little Sophie.

Her little cute face is the only redeeming feature in this clip!
