The votes are in.
Last week, with a voucher worth a princely €25 to spend at Golden Discs on offer, I asked YOU to name your favourite song that mentions another song or artist?
You answered in your dozens.
But there could be only one winner.
Bagatelle – Summer In Dublin
Slightly Bemused writes:
“I was singing a song I heard somewhere, called “Rock ‘n’ roll never forgets.
When my hummin’ was smothered by a 46a and the scream of a low flying jet.” For those interested, Rock ‘n’ Roll Never Forgets, by Bob Seger:
Ian Dury & The Blockheads – Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3
Some of the singers and performers mentioned:
Good golly, Miss Molly
The Bolshoi Ballet
Levi’s and Scotty (Moore)
We’re Willy Harris (skiffle star)
Listening to Rico (Rodriguez) went on to play with the Specials
Adriano Celentano (Italian singer)
Lots more famous people, but all the above involved in music. Actually I saw him [Dury} perform in the ill-fated Stardust a few weeks before the tragic fire and when I was there the escape door were chained and locked.
The Replacements – Alex Chilton
Brian Ahern writes:
“Children by the million sing for Alex Chilton when he comes ’round
They sing “I’m in love. What’s that song? I’m in love with that song.”
Alex Chilton of Big Star fame or course!
