Well done with Albatross by Fleetwood Mac. I know about another Bird, Charlie "Yardbird" Parker who left Kansas City bound for 52nd Street. A club, Birdland was named after Bird and was one of the hottest jazz clubs in New York. A song describing the vibrancy of that time was written by Joe Zawinul. This vocalize version of Birdland is by Manhattan Transfer.
Last week you Lexie won with Albatross by Fleetwood Mac. Mick Fleetwood famously and disastrously once presented the Brits with Sam Fox. So my pick is Sam's greatest hit (!).
Hello Miss Lexie….last week our winner was a song called Albatross….the Albatross has the biggest wing spread of all the birds…..pffft….i am never sure why people thing the biggest of something is the best of something…its very smallist if you ask me…so we are very happy to settle for some smaller birds…and so this week our linky is Three Little Birds by Bob Marley….
Well done winning with Fleetwood Mac's Albatross, a beautiful timeless piece, they also had a song called Tusk. This had me thinking of the 1960s film Jungle Book. My choice is Colonel Hathi's March from the same film.
Larst week Lexie winned da chainy wiv da luvvly Fleetwood Mac instrumental linky " Albatross ". Phew *slaps paws to head* so many ways I could go wiv dis. An albatross be a humungus seabird. One famussly be featured n bumped off in a very long pome " The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner " by Samuel Taylor Coleridge ( wot mum had to recite by heart at skool! ) I discovers a moosic track ( using da term loosely) of da same name by da head bangers Iron Maiden on their Powerslave album. Da full vershun runs over 13 mins on YooToob so abowt da same as da pome takes to recite ! I gives yoo a vershun wiv lyrics to follow in case yoo dussnt knows da original pome cos it keep close to da original story n as a senior fur I consider it my duty to edjamacayt da youngsters.
Congrats to Lexi wiv her win last week with da super Albatross. This week I gives you Welcome to Da Pleasuredome by Frankie Goes To Hollywood. And how does we get from Fleetwood Mac to here I hears you ask. Well da Albatross is in da Rime of Da Ancient Mariner by that geezer Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Him also wrote Kubla Khan and da poem was da inspiration for Welcome to Da Pleasuredome. So dat's it for me linky this week.
Lexie's winning song last week, "Albatross" by Fleetwood Mac, was influenced by the poem "The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner" by Coleridge, which Peter Green read as a child. We have gone for a literary link this week with a song which references Maya Angelou with the line "All God's children need traveling shoes". Our link is "Twist in my sobriety" by Tania Tikaram.
