This sounds like something I've heard on an island voodoo movie soundtrack from the 70's. The breakdown at 1:10 is interesting.

Spike Jones with some anti-Nazi hilarity:

Definitely in my top ten or fifty tunes I will never get out of my head. I still sing this to myself sometimes. I've tried around other people but it just comes off kinda weird.

> Hey, crazed! I was also impressed by the sound of Les Baxter when I heard him for the first time about six months back. Always on the verge of being cheesy, he still manages to deliver something interesting. Have you heard his music for this movie?



> Yes, that Dumb Nutzies is really good, Gavin B - childish but irresistable. Thanks for finding it for us.

> Taking a turn away from the humourous, here´s something written in 1888 which still sounds clear and beautiful today, or as wiki tells us:-

The Gymnopédies are regarded as an important precursor to modern ambient music — gentle yet somewhat eccentric pieces which, when composed, defied the classical tradition.


(Plenty more Erik Satie here, of course:http://www.musicbanter.com/classical...rik-satie.html)

> IMO a lot of the music from Tin Pan Alley has a kind of insincere, facetious quality that can be pretty grating, but the wistful romance in this song still comes across:-

I used to have a K-Tel album called Goofy Gold. Some really great memories listening to these tunes from it:


45's - Beep Beep - The Playmates (Roulette) - YouTube


Lou Monte - Pepino, the Italian Mouse - YouTube

I suddenly remembered what Noel Coward´s ripost to Spike Jones´s song would have been. Given the atmosphere during the war years, it must´ve taken a lot of courage to swim against the tide with a song like this:-

That song is such great fun for children ! You reminded me that I used to hear it on the radio, on a Saturday morning prog called Children´s Favourites. That´s where I first heard:-

^ Yes, The Goons were so clever and so ahead of their time. They showed everyone just how much can be conveyed by the creative use of sound.

.......................................... --------

This pic shows the guitar that Donovan used to play in the early sixties:-



The message he stuck on it seems pretty cool until you realize that it´s a neutered, de-politicized copy of an original message that Woody Guthrie was brave enough to display in the 1930s:-



I´d like to post a song that isn´t by Guthrie, but it´s one that shares his contentious, outspoken attitude. According to Wikipedia, "Strange Fruit was written in 1939 by Abel Meeropol, a white, Jewish high school teacher from the Bronx and a member of the Communist Party, as a protest against lynchings."
My favourite version is Nina Simone´s, from 1965:-

Did anyone notice how last week DJ Chameleon accused Vanilla of necro-bumping a thread? With one well-chosen prefix he turned a perfectly innocent action into something sounding distasteful, or maybe even perverse.

None the less, with no apologies I`m necro-bumping my own thread to share this celebration of a London borough with any MBer who my be interested - if not so much in the music as in the gallery of wonderful photos that goes with.
