    Hi Emma, just want to make sure I understand your clarification. I get the idea of doing songs written by artists who appeared on the show. How about artists who were on the show, who performed songs written by someone else? Example; So Kate Ceberano and David Campbell both appeared on the show. They performed a song together called "Falling Slowly", though neither of them wrote the song. Does that qualify?

    Cool theme. I've already discovered at least a dozen artists and many more songs i'd never heard before ~

    My initial instinct was to say, no… but y’know what? Why not! I will add in an extra criterion in the initial post (and amend my intro video, which is becoming redundant at this point!) to allow for songs performed on the show in musical acts - but not so broad as to include songs mentioned on the show or performed as part of the games.

    Craise Finton Kirk Royal Academy of Arts
    Before the BeeGees went disco and Barry began to wear tight pants to get that
    falsetto they brought out a quirky LP called BeeGee 1st the cover of which was rather
    Psychedelic and the orchestration was a strange combination of reverse tape feedback
    Beatles with a smidgen of inscrutable Incredible String Band lyrics. The bonus tracks
    on it are a hoot and just a little bit crazy and a far cry from the glitter ball disco with
    which the BeeGees made their name. Beegees 1st was released July 1967 and from
    the cover to the songs it seems to be some weird homage to Sgt Pepper which had been
    released in May 1967. I liked the title of this song Craise Finton Kirk (alternate take)
    I think it s a tip of the hat towards For the benefit of Mr Kite.
    Check it out if you are looking for eclectic songs BeeGees 1st

    He smiled and rubbed the stubble on his chin
    He sure shall find the weariness and dreariness of life that's growing thin
    Yet, he didn't have so very far to go
    With a pencil in his hand he will travel on as planned
    With a mist up in the mountain threw a light
    Craise Finton Kirk, see him go, on his way
    Oh, they don't know where he is
    Very very nice, very very nice
    Even in the morning when he slept
    Something good is missing
    There's nothing very much to talk about
    And nothing very much to see
    Craise Finton Kirk, see him go, on his way
    Oh, they don't know where he is
    Very very nice, very very nice
    Talks about the place he'd like to go
    And you never see the worrying and hurrying that makes a person slow
    Yet, you wouldn't think he'd be so hard to find
    Yet, he looks so very busy but there's nothing on his mind
    And his wavy hair continues not to grow
    Craise Finton Kirk, see him go, on his way
    Oh, they don't know where he is
    Very very nice, very very nice

    Nice! I hadn’t heard that one before - and earlier this year I went to Bee Gees Way in Redcliffe and thought I had seen it all!

    Third and final entry "New york mining disaster 1941"
    and some background to the Knockshinnoch disaster that happened
    in 1950 in the village where I lived in Scotland. Long after the event
    had happened it was something to be remembered and talked about
    after a night out at the pub, when men spoke of the heroic deeds that
    had been performed, and I always got the impression that the true heroes
    were different from the official line given out by the management of the Colliery.
    In the description of the video there are links to Pathe news and a short
    history of the disaster, which I have put as text in this video.

    I saw Tim Finn on the list, so Split Enz and early Crowded House came to mind. I went with an early Crowded House song. This is called Four Seasons in One Day.

    Hello, Emma ... great idea for the week! Being from the U.K., I have never seen this programme, but scanning down the list of guests, I noticed that Leo Sayer's name appears more than once. Since he was born and bred just a very few miles from where I grew up on the South Coast of England, I feel I need to support a local lad. (His first manager was, apparently, ex-pop singer turned business man, Adam Faith, who lived for several years in the village I moved to when I got married ... where are these co-incidences going to end?????) So, here is "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing", with the assistance of a very agile alien!

    "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."
