SONGS OF MY YOUTH AND CHILDHOOD

This song was one of my favourites and hearing it again beings back so many precious memories.

Here is Josef Locke singing "I'll Walk Beside You".

My mum was always there for me through her life (all 87 year) and at times I still feel she is there trying her best to guide me.  Love you mum. xx

SONGS OF MY YOUTH AND CHILDHOOD

As you may remember I often scroll through YouTube and of late I've come across some music that reminds me so much of my younger days.   My mum and dad enjoyed 'good' music and also musical comedy.

Each Sunday I will add a song or tune that has special meanings for me from long ago.  To begin with here is "Love's Old Sweet Song" which was one of dad's favourites.  This was sung my John McCormack and recorded in 1927.  I remember playing it on the piano when I was about 12.


Oh yes, the piano.   My mother had some piano lessons as a youngster and, although she had been without a piano for many years, she found she had the ability to easily sight read music and many happy hours were spent by the family singing favourite tunes to mum's piano accompaniment.

My brother Len had a magnificent baritone voice (he could have gone far had not decided to settle down and marry Jean) do some of the music on here will reflect songs he sang so well.

FRIDAY FAVOURITES

Phil and I enjoy the music of Don McLean and this one is a particular favourite.

"Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)" with some of Van Gogh's beautiful paintings.   We have a print of "Sunflowers" on our bedroom wall.

FRIDAY FAVOURITES

I must admit I'd forgotten Ricky Valance but I remember this song so well.

Hope you will enjoy "Tell Laura I Love Her" recorded way back in 1960

FRIDAY FAVOURITES

I came across this old favourite that I've not heard for years.  'Rhythm of the Rain' sung by The Cascades.  I hope you will enjoy it too.  It's certainly easy listening.

FRIDAY FAVOURITES

Neil Sedaka was never a great favourite and yet there are many catchy tunes he sings that I enjoy.   Here he sings 'Oh Carol' and I hope you will enjoy it along with me.  It's from 1959.
