    Not sure if this song escaped from the UK, but back in 2000 it was everywhere here, and at children's birthday parties & school discos for years afterwards. That was because the band who recorded it,...

    As I mentioned last night, I may not be around for the next two Saturdays, so I am passing the baton to Brian Fergus to book the session and keep everybody in order. And if I do happen to be...

    When I asked the family for songs with swearing in them, my daughter immediately told me to do this one. I was appalled, of course, but the idea of "f*!* you very very much" appealed to me, so here...

    Week 11 ran true to form - a Buzzcocks song, old songs, new songs, and some bad language, but for educational purposes, promoting the new sweary season.

    Week 12 will be more of the same, I hope.

    Me too. I normally stick to one or two, but having the freedom of 1970 just tempted me to do more. Thanks for the shout-outs, well done to the winners, and a huge round of applause to our perfect...

    I just went back and found your first Seasons video, which was for my Deck of Cards week, Season 209. I commented then on the quality of your voice, and I can only repeat that now - this sounds so...

    I told this story once before (UkuleleDaddy's Season 300 - Deep Cuts). This is the song which was my earworm for days, weeks, months, back in 1980-ish. I heard it once on the radio, but didn't hear...

    I think the York buskers licence idea was scrapped - possibly the judging panel from the Council decided they had heard enough. There is still a code of conduct that they have to follow, and a...

    I think that was the 10th session in this series, and quite possibly the best. Some good songs, quite a few laughs, and a torrent of bad language from Del. We had no idea.

    I hope he'll be on...

    Back to 1970, although this song was written in 1902. I continue with my mission to make it socially acceptable again, after its unfortunate association with Rolf Harris.
