Roadford 2009 Music choices

Post by Michael Brigg » Wed Jul 22, 2009 11:32 pm

If I make it to Roadford, (a sincere wish) I'm perhaps making a presumption that there may be a "disco." If so this is a plea to avoid House, Ska and all those strange noises that come from modern cars with blacked out windows.

I recall earlier in the year suggesting "The Smoz", Jimmy Durante, Singing "I'm the man that found the Lost Chord" for Rupert's Tonic.

I also like "Beachbaby" by First Class. :D :D :D

Along with the usual Stones, Monkees, Elvis and Beatles that can be garuanteed to make us embarass our children, are there any other less well known but interesting or dare I say classic numbers to entertain us!

Let us give this section of the forum a purpose!

Do they do requests?! If so, they'll be dreading the arrival of Mr Brigg!

Here's an Anthem for you to a well known disco tune!

CVRDA ANTHEM
(Apologies to Village people.)


Young man, there's no need to feel down.
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground.
I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town
There's no need to be unhappy.

Young man, there's a place you can go.
I said, young man, when you're short on your dough.
You can sail there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time.

It's fun to sail with the C-V-R-D-A
It's fun to sail with the C-V-R-D-A

They have everything that you need to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys ...

It's fun to sail with the C-V-R-D-A.
It's fun to sail with the C-V-R-D-A.

You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel ...

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?
I said, young man, you can make real your dreams.
But you've got to know this one thing!

No man does it all by himself.
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf,
And just go there, to the C-V-R-D-A.
I'm sure they can help you today.


It's fun to sail with the C-V-R-D-A.

You can do whatever you feel ...

Young man, I was once in your shoes.
I said, I was down and out with the blues.
I felt no man cared if I were alive.
I felt the whole world was so jive ...

That's when someone came up to me,
And said, young man, take a look at the web.
It's a place there called the C-V-R-D-A.
They can start you back on your way.

or then at the close of play!


You did it your way
CVRDA Lament
Apologies to Paul Anka.


And now, the end is near;
It’s time to get, a brand new question.
My friend, Ill say it clear,
Ill state my case, of which I’m certain.

I’ve read this question through.
I’ve read everything you’ve had to say;
And noticed this, and only this,
You did it the wrong way.

Good puns, I’ve found a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I noticed each and every slip;
Each dreadful joke on this in-formation highway,
And noticed this, and only this,
You did it the wrong way

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I laughed, but they were few.
But through it all, there was no doubt,
You fucked it up, you blew it out.
I faced it all and still you all;
Did it the wrong way.

I’ve groaned, I’ve cursed and cried.
And I feel you’ve been abusing.
And the few, good puns aside,
I found nothing too amusing.

To think I did all that;
And it was gay – (not in a good way),
Oh CVRDA, with a three,
You did it the wrong way.

For what is a question, what has it got?
Well this one, really has naught.
To say the things it truly asked;
Very few managed the task.
The record shows this question blows -
You did it the wrong way.


Sorry, too long an Airport delay no newspaper Blackberry Battery Charged up!
Simples.

I think your spell checker is working to well. I am sure it should read "you can hang out with all the buoys"

ps I think this should be in the banter section.
