Time for a singalong session

28 August, 2020

Time for a Chas & Dave singalong?

• HAVING worked through “lockdown” to keep supplies moving I was fascinated to learn that there are people with time to pontificate on song lyrics.

The result being cancellation, editorship, truncation, adaptation, evasion, wise-acreship and rank poltroonery.

Given the times we have endured – and faced together – might I suggest a nationwide singalong à la Max Bygraves would stir the morale?

Could the government persuade the broadcast media, as a body, on a given day, at a given time, to play a song we could all sing together?

Obviously Chas & Dave would be favourite but for me the 1974 anthem The Cat Crept In would be the one. Incredible to think how big Mud were in those days.
