Peter Paczek sings Elvis Presley!



This followed the next day from the first of the Peter paczek videos following on thematically from the first but including a Geordie version of Elvis Presley’s “Love me Tender”, called “Loov me Champion”.

Introducing Peter Paczek (pronounced Pontschek)!



Here we have the third persona to appear on the channel – Peter Paczek is a Polish Geordie. Apologies to anyone who thinks I sound like a mackem, but yer wrang.

The hat, by the way, is an Olney Eight-piece, in green tweed. At first I was going to use this only for the Peter Paczek character, but I ended up using it on more work, as I wore it a lot anyway in the winter. Then I lost it and bought an identical Olney Eight Piece in grey for this winter.

The poem “Drink to me only with thine eyes” is being murdered in this particular video. It is also available as a drinkning song with a melody almost like a hymn, but I haven’t performed it that way yet. Maybe one day.
