Not exactly a song, but a little naval ditty from the late great Cyril Tawney who had a fine selection of sailor's songs and tales amongst his more general 'folk' repertoire.

Tennessee Ernie Ford

Live TV Christmas song with a flock of delightful children, especially the little tyke to his right. Precious.

The cool thing about writing what you know is that you can always know more.

This song was on a CD that got bundled in with our first CD player making it the first CD we ever owned.

I enjoyed that one, Ollie. Thanks for sharing.


Procol Harum - A Whiter Shade of Pale, live in Denmark 2006<-Click it.

This is a masterful rendition.


I saw Billy Joel in Las Vegas last month and he played this song in remembrance of and as a tribute to Gary Brooker. It was fabulous!

Billy Joel put on a two and a half hour, magnificent show -the best rock concert I've been to and I've been to several. I've seen Joel twice before and this was by far the best show.

A lullaby. My lullaby.

A song without words - so far...

Love this, Dan. I made up lyrics to it last night trying to sing it as if I were to do so to my babies. This music is exquisite.

I've been a John Barry fan as long as I can remember. Today, while writing my screenplay, it was this tune that grabbed me, stopped me and made me think about past things. just beautiful work from a master craftsman.  8)
