Amazing Dylan/Stones collaboration covering Beatles. Seminal sixties interface thing, like the collision of galaxies or Bobby Davro's Copy Cats.

More from Kenny Young, the American McCartney. I could fill this blog up just with Kenny Young songs. I could not find this on You Tube so have made a video with the soundtrack from my own scratchy copy of this record. Reparata and the Delrons do a nice version of this.

I fancy myself an authority on corporeal matters and I am pretty sure that anyone is highly unlikely to melt in the rain no matter how sweet they are. But I am not Kenny Young who is the genius behind this and at keast one other song coming up. This got covered a few times but this is Kenny and his mates with the peerless original.

I fancy myself an advocate but I doubt I could justify the existence of this record on anything other than pure pleasure grounds. It really has no artistic merit whatsoever. I like the girl singer's voice and accent and the comic sounds made by the synthesiser. I have a memory of seeing this on Top of the Pops illustrated by cartoon drawings of the thing doing what is described in the song. Performed by Edwina Biglet and the Miglets. Whatever happened to them?
I fancy myself an astronaut and so does Ricky Wilde. I have put up some of the good stuff from the Lost Jukebox and it is time for the harder stuff. A stern constitution is needed to stomach some of the following material and all persons are advised to proceed with caution. I like the lyrics to this (Dad's away and Mum's asleep conjures up a picture of neglected children in just 5 words). Ricky's performance here is so powerful it has inspired covers from Snow Patrol and a version in Swedish, which I will post next.
