    Interesting theme, and thanks for hosting!

    Looked over the “Upstairs at Eric’s” track list and found a new original song already.

    Hope to share it later in the week. Thanks again!

    Also, I have always though Birdsy's voice was very reminiscent of Allison's.
    oh my goodness what a lovely thing to say! bless you for that!

    and oh gosh how did i miss that 382 vid of yours! just had a listen and it's brill!

    if anyone fancies a sing-along to get them in the mood for this season, here's that fab vid by 29moons

    that's a very good question! so good indeed that i wasn't sure of the answer! but i just double checked with del and yes indeed any song recorded by the band counts!

    really sorry to hear you won't be able to bring a song this week - if things change i hope you'll swing by!

    Hello, Lynda and Del ... a very good afternoon to you! And here is MY version of "Only You", which isn't even remotely "synthesised". I know that there is at least one more version floating around in the ether, because I've seen it!

    "The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place." George Bernard Shaw

    ​"Just remember, if we get caught ... you're deaf and I don't speak English."

    "Betray a friend and you'll often find you have ruined yourself." Aesop

    Yep, all changed again, I had a bit of a problem with it, trying to find where they'd put stuff when I hosted.

    The Platters did indeed do a song with the same title, it predates the Yazoo song by about 25 years. I don't think I was able to walk when it came out, thanks Keith.
