In 1934 #SamGoldwyn bought the rights to the film #WizardOfOz.  I bet he was happy about that! #singing;#feelgood

Merry old land of Oz

26-1 Wizard of Oz

Ha ha ha
Ho ho ho
And a couple of tra la las
That’s how we laugh the day away
In the merry old land of Oz

Bzz, bzz, bzz
Chirp, chirp, chirp
And a couple of La di das
That’s how the crickets crick all day
In the merry old land of Oz

We get up at twelve and start to work at one
Take an hour for lunch and then at two we’re done
Jolly good fun

Ha ha ha
Ho ho ho
And a couple of tra la las
That’s how we laugh the day away
In the merry old land of Oz

Ha ha ha
Ho ho ho
Ha ha ha ha ha
That’s how we laugh the day away
With a ho ho ho ha ha ha
In the merry old land of Oz

Pat, pat here
Pat, pat there
And a couple of brand new straws
That’s how we keep you young and fair
In the merry old land of Oz

Rub, rub here
Rub, rub there
Whether you’re tin or brass
That’s how we keep you in repair
In the merry old land of Oz

We can make a dimple smile out of a frown
Can you even dye my eyes to match my gown? Uh-huh
Jolly old town

Clip, clip here
Clip, clip there
We give the roughest claws
That certain air of savoir faire
In the merry old land of Oz

Ha ha ha
Ho ho ho
Ho ho ho ho ho
That’s how we laugh the day away
In the merry old land of Oz

That’s how we laugh the day away
With a ha ha ha, ha ha ha, ha ha ha
Ha ha ha, ha ha ha, ha ha ha
In the merry old land of Oz

Ha ha ha, ho ho oh, ha ha ha
Ah ha ha

January 25th – World’s largest diamond found – “Diamonds are forever”

In 1905 the world’s largest #diamond was found.  And diamonds last forever.  Here is #ShirleyBassey with the #JamesBond theme #singing;#feelgood

Diamonds are forever

25-1 Diamonds are forever poster

Diamonds are forever,
They are all I need to please me,
They can stimulate and tease me,
They won’t leave in the night,
I’ve no fear that they might desert me.Diamonds are forever,
Hold one up and then caress it,
Touch it, stroke it and undress it,
I can see ev’ry part,
Nothing hides in the heart to hurt me.
I don’t need love,
For what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me,
For when love’s gone,
They’ll lustre on.

Diamonds are forever,
Sparkling round my little finger.
Unlike men, the diamonds linger;
Men are mere mortals who
Are not worth going to your grave for.
I don’t need love,
For what good will love do me?

Diamonds never lie to me,
For when love’s gone,
They’ll lustre on.
Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Forever and ever.

25-1 Shirley Bassey Diamonds are forever

January 24th – First canned beer goes on sale – “Got my beer in the sideboard here”

In 1935 the first canned #beer went on sale.  Here are  #ChasAndDave with “The Sideboard Song” which contains the lyric above.  Cheers! #singing;#feelgood

The Sideboard Song

24-1 Beer cans

Mother phoned up last night, she was going spare, she was in a temper pulling out her hair
You’re sister’s courtin’ a scruffy looking ted, father don’t give a monkeys and this is what he said:

I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care if he comes round here
I’ve got my beer in the sideboard here let Mother sort it out if he comes round here

I said to me mother let me ‘ave a talk to dad, so he comes to the telephone, he wasn’t half mad
Said she’s got no sense silly little cow and if he comes round here there’s gonna be a row

I’ll tell ya something else and all he’s never got a job, he hangs around the betting shop the lazy little yob
Mother says calm down now, he’s alright, but they’re out there snogging in the passage all night

I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care if he comes round here
I’ve got my beer in the sideboard here let Mother sort it out if he comes round here

If he comes round here, I’ve got my beer, let Mother sort it out,
In the sideboard here, got my beer, let Mother sort it out
I don’t care if he comes round here,

You’d think he was a tramp with the stubble on his chin, he looks like something that the cat’s brought in,
Never got no money, smokes all my fags, got holes in his soles and he’s hanging in rags
On top of that he said to tell ya why I’ve got the ‘ump, she had a skinny little belly now its sticking out the front
Nothing seems to fit her and she’s running out of clothes, if he keeps on taking liberties I’ll punch him on the nose

January 21st – Concorde flies for the first time – “Above the clouds”

In 1976, #Concord flew for the first time. Here are #ELO with a lesser known track, because I’ve already used “Don’t stop me know” by Queen (which contains the word #Supersonic #singing;#feelgood

Above the clouds

21-1 Concord

I came along to see your face,
But the only thing I got from you,
Was telling me it’s fantasy,
That you would always be with me,
I can tell you that it’s true
I’m waiting here,
But it’s alright
It’s alright with me,
You better believe me now.I guess it’s like a mountain side,
You gotta climb it to the top,
Floating in a sea of dreams
The only thing that you can see
Is the view above the clouds.
I’m waiting here,
But it’s alright,
Still it’s alright with me,
You better believe me now.

21-1 ELO A new world record
