‘Tears on my Pillow’



I have as it seems, quite a back log of items or posts stacking up that I intend writing for the blog and need to buckle under this month and get them done. But meanwhile I wanted to say something about the choice of music on my video bar which is at the bottom of the page.
Well actually, I’ve picked one song preformed by different artists; they all perform their interpretation of the song ‘Tears on my Pillow’.

I’m not aware of whom was the original recording artist but the song has very much a feel of the 50s and 60s about it. It evokes for me the nostalgia of that decade lived out in the popular TV show Happy Days. But reminds me of my childhood in the 1960s spent with a gang of Rockers and otherwise known as Greasers, which is also an ethnic slur apparently for a person of Mexican descent. So from the very start I was getting in with the wrong sort!

Well back to the song then and first up is Little Anthony, what a voice has he; very quirky but unique, not a good ending I thought. Sha-na-na may have appeal to probably the gay community and my friend Barry ha-ha! Kylie Minogue – Oh lovely Kylie always reminds me of an ex-girlfriend from way back; but my favourite version of this song is from the film Grease staring the two John’s that is John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.
