It's karaoke night! Some live music featuring yours truly with friends in Central London ...

Mr Bojangles
The Robbie Williams version of this classic number, written and recorded by Jerry Jeff Walker (1968). Personally I prefer the Sammy David Jnr version.

Reviewing the Situation - from Lionel Bart's 'Oliver!'

This is a private recording, made rather hurriedly over Christmas 2017 and uploaded onto YouTube, of a song I've always wanted to perform on stage and - hopefully - still may do one day. In Lionel Bart's musical 'Oliver!', Fagin contemplates the options that life presents him with as he gets older: a fabulous song, full of Jewish wit and sentimentality. I'll keep looking out for any amateur dramatic company that's planning to stage 'Oliver!' in the future and is without their Fagin!

From Tosca - Giacomo Puccini:

 


Diedi gioielli

della Madonna al manto,
e diedi il canto agli astri,

al ciel,
che ne ridean più belli.

 

English Translation:

 

I lived for art, I lived for love ...
I gave jewels

for the Madonna's mantle,
And songs for the stars,

in heaven,
That shone forth with greater radiance.
