    Hard to follow a new bub.Congrats!
    Here's a Calypso from Wilmoth Houdini. I've enjoyed going down this rabbit hole. I've now realised how much good stuff is in the genre.Bit hard to cover though.But this is a fun one from the '30's.Universal fare of infidelity and revenge.This guy is well worth investigating.
    I bunged on my best Trinidadian accent.Hope I don't get a visit from the cultural appropriation thought police!
    I've also included the lyrics as they are fun and are not on the net so I wrote them down for anyone to use.

    Johnny take my wife

    after johnny eat me food, after Johnny wear me clothes
    after johnny drink me rum
    johnny turned around and he take my wife
    chorus
    ah look a misery, whenever I meet johnny
    people,people will be sorry to see
    the grave for johnny and the gallows for me

    my wife was so very nice, so I used to treat her right
    johnny come with his sweet mouth
    and chat up me wife till he knock her out
    chorus
    I went in the house to get me gun, me wife sees me coming and
    she starts to run
    but let me tell you where I lose me head
    that johnny was hiding underneath the bed
    chorus
    This mr Johnny must be very nice,
    for me wife call Johnny in her sleep last night
    From today I intend to go,
    on a hunt for mr Johnny that gigolo
    chorus
    johnny you should never do a thing like that
    to bite papa houdini in the back
    but the judge and jury going to see my face
    for this thing going to end in a murder case

    Ahoy
    Since I tried Calypso yesterday then I am trying Skiffle today.
    I am doing a song by an Icelandic band from... the 60s or 70s called Ríó Tríó. From what I have heard of skiffle in the past 2 days makes me think that they are skiffle (or at least skifflesque)
    Here is Verst af Öllu, or the Worst of All.
    I subtitled the video

    Now that is an absolute gem. I enjoyed that one very much.
    It had just the right amount of wry and dry humour. Being
    Australia I thought you might have gone for some Cricket Calypso.

    Seems to be a popular theme this American stationed in Japan falling in love with a Geisha girl :-)

    Hey have you been reading my autobiography? :-?
    That was a rollocking piece of music. I bet Mr Donegan
    would have recorded it if he had heard it. From the subtitles
    it reminds me of any of the many Charles Bukowski poems.
    It has the women and the drinking... all that is missing
    is the gambling and the fighting.

    This song came up in one of the singalong sessions at GNUF last weekend, and I decided to do it then. But since then it seems to have become this week's theme tune, including Ryan's version with added Nathan. I really can't compete with that, but here it is anyway.
