Heard this song on the radio "oldies station" yesterday. Never heard it before.

Apparently it was a Billboard top 10 hit back in the seventies. It caught my attention because on the refrain her voice sounds a bit like Maddy Prior.

The video is an incredible flashback to the seventies.

I like this cover better than the original:

Not all of Karl Jenkin's stuff is my cup of tea though...I don't like his religious music.
To Jesus through Mary.

Remember the Holy Souls!

"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Two very different throwback songs from two bands with equally terrible names.

You Blew It! - Lanai
Them Are Us Too - Us Now

And some new tracks.

Sup w'dat!?

My friend just suggested this.  There are certain things appealing about the music.  I haven't watched the video, though, fyi!  For some reason I think it's been posted before...seems vaguely familiar.

The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the Monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"

Found this interesting site, playback.fm  It will give you and play the top 100 songs from the year you were born. From the 1900s to the present.
I don't want to give anything away but two songs from my year of birth are The Tennessee Waltz and Goodnight Irene.
