Couldn't agree more...

A top-5 could be (in no particular order):

City Boy - The Day The Earth Caught Fire (or Dinner At The Ritz)
Beatles - Abbey Road (or Revolver)
Queen - A Night At The Opera (or A Day At The Races)
Kansas - Leftoverture
Boston - Boston
Do what you do, do well.....

It was forty years ago today
Liutenant Gloin taught the band to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all these years?
Liutenant Gloin's Brummie All Star Band

We're Liutenant Gloin's Brummie All Star Band
We hope you will enjoy the show
We're Liutenant Gloin's Brummie All Star Band
Sit back and let the evening go
Liutenant Gloin's Brummie All Star Band
Liutenant Gloin's Brummie All Star Band

It's wonderful to be here
It's certainly a thrill
You're such a lovely audience
We'd like to take you home with us
We'd love to take you home

I don't really want to stop the show
But I thought that you might like to know
That the singer's going to sing a song
And he wants you all to sing along
So let me introduce to you
The one and only Lol Mason
And Liutenant Gloin's Brummie All Star Band

Just the alternate version. Sorry for being a little silly. :oops: :D

Nice one, Robin!

I think you put a big smile on Colonel Mason's face up there in his heaven!

Btw, good to see some survivors here! :lol:

Imagine which constellation of bands possible up there. Some we can only dream of considering all the people we lost Not only for years. Decades and centuries.

Funny enough I watched the video the other day with my 6th grade english class. And it seems to me, that at a time, they are 6 men running in the video. Can this really be true? Was that Mutt joining in or am I just wrong?
I still use TDTECF teaching the young girls and boys some english. An all time favourite.

Just to make a follow up on my own words.I am old and my mind is disturbed. I had convinced myself, that at that time they were only five members left in the band. I now know that I'm utterly wrong- SORRY!! I feel so stupid. I probably will stay away for another half year untill grass has grown over this fuck-up.
