A music challenge.
The Girl for Impanema by Frank Sinatra + Antonio Carlos Jobim
Who would have guessed the instrumental theme from a TV show would once have the highest radio airplay in the US?
Jan Hammer - Theme from Miami Vice
I'm throwing my arms around Paris - Morrissey
April sun in Cuba - Dragon
Sounds of then: this is Australia - GANGgajang
Hollywood 7 - Jon English
Fall of Rome - James Reyne
Even more politically activist than "Beds are Burning"; Warakurna is an aborginal settlement in the Australian outback.
This one's as old as the Oklahoma Hills! (Jim Reeves)
Now here's an even older one, which many who've never been to the UK probably won't understand - but it should still bring a smile to your face!
With My Little Stick of Blackpool Rock (George Formby)
Explanation: Blackpool is an old-fashioned seaside resort with a famous tower in the county of Lancashire, NW England. Rock is a hard, stick-shaped boiled-sugar sweet/candy usually flavoured with mint and with the town's name running all the way through it (Google 'Stick of rock'!). George Formby (1904-1961) was a Lancashire-born singer-songwriter and comedian who famously sang comical songs and played a ukelele. Keep smiling!
Time for a terrible pun. Nothing, Arizona is a ghost town northwest of Phoenix that at its peak had a population of about 10 people. LOTS of songs inadvertently mention it in their title, of which this is an example:
At least one tune about the actual town also exists, by a local country group:
On that note then,
A song for Nhill (one of my favourite Victorian towns)
HaHa! That was almost as much fun as George Formby (except he could sing in tune).
In response to: Msg #171128
That was pretty funny! Why stop now? (Why, also in Arizona, has a population of about 100. It was named for the shape of a major highway intersection downtown).
