so pleased to have been around when this was …..happy days
So all the good plans to blog a few things that have happened over the last few days, and things that the oldmanleslie clan are looking forward to ….go right out of the window when I realise, I love the tunes, and whilst they don’t sound as good, And I have it on vinyl some where …..you tube is great for memories and instant access
happy ” dancing like a loon “
So what a tune, from Not THAT long ago .
Always sends a little shiver across my spine this one, not sure why …..either that or i want to be driving very fast in a very straight line in my Motor……….enjoy
One from that dark time called the 80’s
But only Just
One that i hope will make you think a little, well worth watching all the way through , I want to thank the person that i got this from ,
I relate specifically to ” the bikes & trainers “
another one from my youth, seems my little lad loves it
So last year , the maistre of the band i drum in Suggested that we had a ” trip out ” and some of you will have seen by blog about the Night. it was free, great, a lot of fun, and an annual event . For me , on the night , apart from being with “ the band ” and not having to perform, it was being in Glastonbury, a quaint English town, and hearing Sham 69 Blaring through the night
And paired up to a real comedy genius double act ( and no, that’s not Simon Cowell )
such an inspirational track for me, one from My Dads ( the real oldmanleslie )’s old albums. May surprise you that I like it.
Surprised me that I knew every word
So following on from my Horrible day yesterday £40.00 to travel 100 miles on public transport in horrible cramped conditions, I was out there again today in the big wide world, ironically about the same mileage, but under my own steam. I actually got 48 MPG from the car and that was mostly Town driving , so in direct cost £13.00 of fuel covered it . and I could talk to people ( hands free of course , as it came as standard ) without the fear of someone in the carriage listening to me so the Difference was I enjoyed every single mile , which put me in a better frame of mind for each meeting….. this must be what they term ” advancement through technology “
My car, My radio , and one of my favourites of ALL time played. enjoyed it so much, had to come home, you tube it and find 9.00 minutes plus of sheer indulgence
all in all , I had a great day so if there is ” karma” I Hope you have had a great day too
Enjoy the tune,
well, it relaxed me, then inspired me, then invigorated me……and once again, its only music
and yes, i am tooooooo old to be enjoying this sort of stuff
one from a couple of years ago …..loved it then even though im way to old to be listening to stuff like this
Enjoy it, One of the more mellow tunes
“Could this be the next gangnam style ” they look better than Psy ( in my opinion )
Im way to old to be listening to this stuff, but im loving the bass line in this …i found it at 600,000 + views in todays terms thats only just begun, i guess it will go into the millions…
the perfect antidote to al the valentine’s day commercialism,
Topless people, Cracking Tune, No mention of love, roses, chocolates or other stuff associated to Valentines day ….
Just a brilliant track, from Pendulum
I admire those that can, it’s just something i never got around to learning. I don’t know if this guy is good, or bad on a technical level, But what Seminal tunes he mixes…… from the old skool we would say ” No fillers ” The mix isn’t mine, all credit to the DJ though ,
And to the Prodigy for the tunes……….Thank you
at the time , one of my favourite tracks on the first album that my girlfriend at the time ( Now “mrs Oldmanleslie” for a long time bought me ) ….. It was played to almost breaking in the car at the time , and i think finally the cassette player managed to chew it up , I couldn’t even repair it with a Bic Biro.
It just made me realise, i have a vinyl collection 7,12 inch and albums that sound great , a stack of CD’s and still a few tapes that i can no longer play , Various hard drives of MP3 tracks , and little Micro SD cards in the car ….
And of course like the link at the top , i can tap into non existent music that is streamed….. But i never had any 8 tracks
So whats the next format do we think
Just one word does it………………
We took the noise to Littlehampton
and earlier in the year http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UG_15csvbo0
Some people wait for the first christmas carol on the radio, some look for the coca cola truck… one of my Faves for this time of year ( and its not even meant to be festive ) is this one…..
How clever are turkeys ?
So Every November we all start looking for ward to the festive season, For some its the religious aspect, for some kids it’s that they get the Hot present of the year . For Mums and dads it all about the family and having a bit of Down time to relax.
Music wise we will all no doubt hear the usual songs over the coming weeks , I hope you enjoy this one i was made aware of a few years ago …..
For the purposes of any one thinking of ” double meanings ” i am listing this as a song about presents .
And just in case you need to get a little ” cheesier ” i am guessing you wont know this one either http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7izlmp1OeA
Now the important stuff :
The John lewis Most popular toys for christmas 2013 I Know John lewis might not be deemed as the best toyshop in the world, But they have that certain something that gives a feel of Quality to their service
- Owning Christmas (brandenage.wordpress.com)
- John Lewis Christmas advert 2013 (telegraph.co.uk)
- VIDEO: John Lewis Christmas bear and hare advert revealed (express.co.uk)
I wonder who you have to know to get one of these
hey hey hey , i’ll huff…………….
so is it bad to blog about a tune that pops up that you had forgotten, all i was doing was a shuffle whilst blogging.
” im a wolf today ” love it
Possibly one of the cheesiest pieces of Eurobeat ever made…. Can any one remember what was unique ( at the time ) about the proper video
So Whats in a title, well quite often , not a lot, but in this one, well there is a link to a piece of music that is so seminal to me , its up there on the list for tunes to be carried out in a box to ….
I know the purists out there wont like this, but for me…..it just does the trick
Just an Auld tune that you don’t hear often enough anymore.
and if you remember it , you might like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjjuY5qetnw&list=FLvMd162cT7j8WV2kNNXtjEw
firstly , all credit to the animator, and the team that had the idea
Heres one for y’all that must be 10 years old know . 2 generations of ” oldmanleslie” have liked
it…even the real ” old man ”
It still makes me smile
any how ,
If you have seen my posts today, you’ll see Im in a reflective , sort of quiet mood. before the hassles that come tomorrow ….
The internet first introduced me to this track, i keep coming back to it, i’ve shown my kids, i’ve sung it to one of them ( scary thought )
any how 90 000000 hits almost and its not Psy / Bieber/ Britney spears/ 1D
if you like it, enjoy
What a gorgeous tune…..
Happy times, great days , it all seemed so much simpler then
Not sure how many are going to see this one, would welcome your comments.
Its before PC, it has to be worth a look
Music is important to me , but comedy this good gets it every time
So there was me , a forty something, respectable father of 2, driving back to base…. just thought i would give BBC radio 1 a listen… “OMG i believe is the expression” i loved it …and i managed to hold the speed down during the ” loud Bit ”
Better mix here ( in my opinion )
- ✪ New Official Video – Booyah by Showtek feat. We Are Loud and Sonny Wilson | Polydor (Out 20th Oct) (brandnite.org)
- Showtek feat. We Are Loud! & Sonny Wilson – Booyah (Original Mix) (dancingastronaut.com)
so how do we get the word out there on a really good New artist… I guess all i can ask is that if you like it , you reblog it ..
and I’m sure there is a good reason
but it’s from a simpler time….
For those that remember the last time we were out of recession, and how the good times rolled….. the news papers tell us we are clear of recession in the UK , but some how it doesn’t feel as good as it did then …..
If you want the full version with the lovely line at the start
What a sad loss to Music, Not one of her most popular,
Only my opinion, definitely one of the best.
Went for the first time today to the recently opened Splash point in Worthing..had spent many years telling my eldest son how daft i used to be on the diving boards at the baths ( crystal palace ) when i was a kid… so i wanted to see if i was still as daft….. Fortunately for me, i wasn’t , but i was pleased to see that there were some pretty good divers there. Got home and found this posted online
To the lads that dive, may you never tire of it…
To the staff at the pool, may you never tire of seeing it
all in all a greatway to spend a couple of hours having proper old school fun
So yes, it’s a catchy tune. Not X Factor based, Nice singer, but most important i want to tell the world about it as it was Directed by James Atkinson. Filmed by James Atkinson. Assisted by Leo Atkinson. Filmed on location and The Jailhouse, Hereford.
Performed by Ellice.
So why is all this Important i hear you ask, Well, its a pride thing, Because James is one of my cousins boys. Running his own media organisation, this isn’t the first music video he has done. He always does a good Job, and this could be one of those that in the future people refer to as his ” early work ” before he became famous…
Any how, thats enough from Me. James & JDA Media are easy to get hold of. Based in the UK in Worcestershire
Thanks for your time
Just about the perfect end to the day, I had long forgotten how gorgeous this sounds
, and only now do i feel like im ” fishing in the rivers of life “………….. enjoy.
I thought it was just a nice place in a good song, but apparently its ” internet true ”

Another one of those tunes that i adore…takes me back to a very good place that isn’t there any more
all credit to the artist & thanks for this classic
probably 25 years ago to the Hour………me and those near & dear to me….
Cheesy tune, but the usual start of the party
Basically before music got serious
