After the total failure of the pilot show in the coffee bar we've done what all good production companies do: self commissioned an entire series in the hope of selling it to BBC 9 or perhaps a lesser channel, for a few shillings. We have to eat!

Since that last one I did was so easy that no one guessed it, this one is, if possible, even easier.

Clue. It's just for you.

It's Your Song!
What a nice rendition, and it's nice to see you as well, albeit briefly.

Well done, Schiz. Very Happy and thanks.

My plan Santa, is to make them progressively more difficult. I'll probably do one or maybe two a week: it's just a bit of fun, and it forces me to learn new stuff , well not new but new for me, I spent last night downloading a bundle of music, pre 90s stuff. Smile
We're waiting for some cables and a box of trix that will allow us to play straight into a laptop, and also to join our keyboards together so the recording won't be affected by noise etc but for now you'll have to suffer recordings on my tablet thing. The latest intro: link at the top.

Clue: Are you sure?

Oh to play like that, I should have stuck with the piano lessons..........my Dad plays brilliantly.

Love the note!

I think it's something from Adele's 21 but not sure. I'll let someone else have a go....

I can't say but I recognised the intro straight away... quite why I haven't got Adele's albums is beyond me as I think she's fantastic! Confused

I just Googled it and yes, it's from 19... apparently, a Bob Dylan cover! I didn't know that either... I'm just off to Youtube it..

Yes, it's a good song. My Home Town is also a good track from 19 which is not as good as 21, which is absolutely excellent. Can it really be over two years ago that it came out?

21 contains a cover of a Cure song.

Well done. It says on the music that it was written by Bob Dylan. Hubby says I'm playing too much of each tune, it's too easy, so from the next one, fewer notes more written clues, with additional wriiten clues if you're struggling... Smile

Too much of the tune?
We'll see more of you than of the tune (not that I'm complaining at that)

At least it's not Adele this time.

Gosh, you got in one, I was hoping to stretch that one out for at least a couple of days, Ron. Still too easy?

No, not at all.
As you said, it's old - that's why I recognised it Laughing

I'm so pleased it hasn't been guessed on the first bash, Uncle B. No no , the clue is about the tune. Fury with a wet nose, I like that.

Your guess is in the right ball park but it's not that tune or that artist. Very Happy

I can only think of ELO's 10538 Overture (and I can't get that out of my head)!

At the moment I'm working on a several part symphony. Yes, classical stuff, I love it. Part one is called "Armageddon". When it's done, I'll post it. I've not done another intro yet, will do soon.

One last one for today and for this series as we're away all next week, although , I can pop in to say "hello" on my phone thing.

Clue: getting over a divorce.

Don't forget to "tune" in for the next series (new and improved) the week after next.
