A matter of great importance... (if not a little off topic)

Postby quirky torok » Mon Sep 28, 2009 9:45 am

As you may know the J-Class roadshow comes to SYC this weekend.. and some fool (Chad) has employed me to entertain you with some gramaphone resordings..

However observing the previous DJ's that have played at such events, I want to steer away from playing Christopher Cross's seminal Hit 'Sailing' or Rod Stewarts 1970's hit 'Sailing'

I need inspiration, perspiration, dedication, medication (oops maybe not)...In short I need your help..... What do you want out of this?? do you want funky disco.... smooth jazz.. or industrial metal.. the choice is yours.

The dedication line is now open.. send me your ideas and suggestions...

I might even buy a new 78 the the collection. Please send me the name of the song and the artist as my mind reading skills aren't what they should be.

The fool who employed me who will remain nameless (Chad) only had one request.... that i 'Give em Hell!' (in his words). Thats how I remember the conversation anyways..

Over to you..

ps i have never been stumped in finding a record, however that is no cue for you to play stump the DJ. I will just get huffy and play back to back CombiChrist.. you have been warned.

I tend to like Jazz or Salsa! and thanks for asking... I don't think I've ever been asked for input on this sort of thing before.

I grow weary of all the Gregorian Chants they have been playing at these after-race gigs. How about a little French Polyphonic Rag?

Failing that I once had the great 78 recording, The Admiral's Daugther (namesake for the orginal pub at Starboard's Yacht Club).

If you came up with the Admiral's Daughter and played it at our afterparty I would put on my Pink Poodle Skirt and dance with Armchair, if you could get him to come out of retirement. If you couldn't find Armchair, i would dance with you Q.

Actually Ol' Armchair was there in the J-CLASSIC Spectator's box last week, thinly disguised!

I think the recording I had was by Rusty Warren, but that might just be a rusty memory on my part. In fact now that I found a YouTube video of the old 78 recording, it probaby WAS Ruth's recording I had. I will send the skirt off to the cleaners and have it ready for the dance.

Just in case your audience wants to learn the words and do a sing along on October 3, here is a YouTube recording of the tune:
