    Back in 1976, this song was included in the self-titled major label debut by singer/songwriter Warren Zevon.
    It was covered by Linda Ronstadt, Willy de Ville, Counting Crows and Dwight Yoakam among others.

    Here's a David Allan Coe song from 1976 I've always liked but never tried. It was a challenge trying to put some of the fills in.

    Default zip it up (Mr Rahman remix)

    For me the 70's was all about punks and their fatal fascination
    for zips. Zips that had no function, never went anywhere and were
    often mere decoration. A found sound of Mr Rahman advert. No uke
    but some beats and a blast from the past, because it is an anomaly
    and to my mind amusing.

    Ahoy
    I have long been a fan of Dylan's 1975 album Blood on the Tracks
    The album is recorded, for the most part, in open D tuning so I tuned my uke in open... something (G, B, D, G) and recorded Tangled up in Blue

    Here's one that I was going to do for Pa's "No" week, but I just didn't get the time to sit down and record it. But it fits perfectly into Rick's time slot, written in the 60s by Tom Rush, but a hit here for The Walker Brothers in Jan '76. And some time after that, an incident which means that this song always takes me right back to a time and a place...

    There was a girl at our school called Scarlett. How she ended up there I will never know - there were vague stories of her father being a European aristocrat, and she definitely had an air about her which said she was slightly above the rest of us. But she also had a very good voice - tuneful, soulful, and sometimes almost too powerful - and looks that had boys falling over as she passed by. And she knew it. And in turn, we all knew she was well out of our league. I got to know her slightly, working as the sound mixer on school musicals, but it never went much further than handing a microphone to her and then turning the volume down a bit when her voice went into overdrive.

    At a school disco c.1976, she suddenly appeared at my side. "Steve - help me...there's a creep over there that keeps pestering me. Pretend you're my boyfriend". And with that she led me on to the dance floor. Now, acting has never been a strength of mine, but this was a role I did my best to excel at. I can't recall which record was playing to start with, but I remember only too well when the DJ suddenly slowed things down, and this song started. What was I to do, but go along with her request? When the music ended, she thanked me, and wandered off. The End.

    But several years later....

    One evening I turned on the radio to hear the DJ thank the band that had been in that night to do a live session - The Scarlett Wollenmann Band. That was her. But in the days before the internet and on-demand radio, I never did get to hear that session. More years later, when researching stuff became easier, I found out that she went on to become a bit of a star on the Italian music scene, singing on a few dance hits, and doing some power-ballad-ish things.
    Sadly, in 1993, all of that pretty well came to an end when she was in a car accident which left her wheelchair-bound. There are a few clips of her on YouTube - here she is winding her voice up the way she always did https://youtu.be/ZRD_Y7Go-44

    Anyway, Scarlett, if you ever Google your own name and end up here, thanks for that dance.

    This one was out in the UK in 1979 so creeps in under the wire. The choir I belong to are including it in our Easter Concert in April in an arrangement by the choir master so a good excuse to do a solo uke version singing the melody for a change rather than the tenor part.
