Thumbs up Mr Brenner

Boy am I glad to be here.

You don't want to know the hassle getting here - fortunately the Tissue Island Embassy in Tripoli worked overtime to get my visa. I was not surprised that I had to present passport, birth certificate, sister's bra and i-Pod to get the nod but hey-ho, after a wonderful flight it's all good

I like the look of it here - and thanks for the invitation

We're all glad you could make it, you're amongst friends here...

So, your first choice is from The King's 1961 film, Blue Hawaii, one of 30-odd films he starred in.

A beautiful tune to kick your TID's off with, why does it make the list... ?

Thumbs up Thanks

for that.

Elvis. The King. My old fella was a big Elvis fan and growing up, there was always a lot of Elvis music in the house.
When I got to about 16, I started watching loads of his films and really got in to him. Fun in Acapulco, Jailhouse Rock, GI Blues were all superb but Blue Hawaii, well, to this day it blows me away.

He has a dream Marlo-esque lifestlye - wealthy family, good trainee job, popular with the cool kids and gets to hang around with loads of women.

Some great lines ('On you, wet's my favourite colour'), quality story (Elvis must chaperone some hot chicks around Hawaii ) and great songs (Rock a hula baby, (almost) always true to you etc.) but this song was the best. The best love song ever and how he sings it is superb. Most. Romantic. Song.

Years later, I joined the Elvis Fan Club based in London and used to be well known for banging (droning) on about this. Saw loads of impersonators and
this was, and is, always my favourite Elvis song.

I don't care if he ended up a bit - in his pomp, for me, he's incredible.

Default The Smiths - I've Started Something I Couldn't Finish

Kin'ell, thought you nodded off there Jez, must be the jetlag...

Elvis was an incredible artist and I am not suprised he has made your TID's list, he was on my own list. RIP in peace The King.


Moving on to your second choice, this is the perfect song to accompany Koppas' TID's...

The 1987 release from the band's final studio album, Strangeways Here We Come. What are the reasons behind this selection...?

Thumbs up I was mentally

adrift in Blue Hawaii

College/Uni. Once getting to Shena Simon,'cool' music became much more important and fortunately, I soon got into The Smiths.
A truly great song - and my best mates to this day, we used to go to Monroe's nr to Piccadilly Station and do a lot of socialising there.
They had a quality jukebox and 'Wown' as we used to call it due to the opening riff was our main song of choice.

The line 'and 18months hard labour seems....fair enough' is still one of my all time faves.

Just hearing this song takes me back to Lazy Lils, Devilles, Brahms and Liszt but mostly Monroes. Great friends and loads and loads of fun.
Also, on getting to uni I naturally played up the 'Inner City North Manc' lad role and enjoyed being the resident Smiths guru. Saw them a few times in concert and they never disappointed.

Christ, some blasts from the past there Quiggers, used to frequent most of those venues.

Was lucky enough to see them just the once before they broke up, was glad I did.

Did you know this album will be 22 years old a week tomorrow..

Default ha

they were ace locations - weren't Lazy Lils and Devilles next to each other? Which one had the 'Bucking Bronco'?

22yrs old? That's horrendous

That means that to my imminent daughter, this album will be as old as say, a Guy Mitchell or Lonnie Donnegan album was to me growing up

Glad you saw them too - I always feel lucky and love the fact that they come from Manchester. We were watching 'Never Been Kissed' yesterday starring Drew Barrymore and I was thrilled when one of their songs appeared.

Oh - and that awful yank version of 'How Soon Is Now' at the start of Charmed

Default Nat King Cole - Nature Boy

Evolution Jez, evolution. Time waits for no man...


Your 3rd selection is from the superb Nathaniel Adams Cole, and a track from 1948, which topped the US billboard charts for 8 weeks that year.

What memories does this song evoke..?

Default short and simple one

here Brenner -

Classic song from Andy's uncle with the most emotional line in music for me in it.

"The greatest thing, you'll ever learn. Is just to love - and be loved in return"

In the darkest hours which we all have - I often think of this beautiful song and it's a great comfort. Again, my Dad was a big fan and I've always loved NKC's voice - and this for me is a truly special song.
