Here are the music round cheats for tonight
The first is for the Brass Monkey Leith:
That’s a pretty smooth soul sound but despite being named Johnny Bristol, Johnny Bristol is not FROM Bristol at all, he’s from North Carolina.
It’s a bit of a rip-off, these American entertainers cutting about with tricky UK place names in their personal names, making the FANS think they’re somewhere they’re not.
The same accusation can be levelled at Belinda Carlisle and Melissa Manchester.
And, of course, Michelle Pfeiffer – who’s never even BEEN to Kirkcaldy.
Meanwhile the Portobello Tap music round will contain this song by The Small Faces:
This is a sixties song. Now, I’m getting pretty old but I still don’t remember the sixties. This is something that’s before my time.
I still know the song though – and so do you now – (if you listen to the vid)
See you tonight – x
