Relight my Fire by Take That Embarassed

Sorry but it's such a good shimmy round the kitchen whilst washing up song!

I like this one. The song is lovely but the video is absolutely videotastic.

Can this video really be over 20 years old?

Yes, one heck of a mighty track, isn't it.

I bought the album based on liking this particular song so much and was thoroughly disappointed cos the rest of the tracks came nowhere near this for me.

Is it too late to squeeze one in?

Nights in White Satin by the Moody Blues.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9muzyOd4Lh8

I've loved it since I was 15 and going to the youth club disco (which was a long while after it came out in case anyone's thinking I was 15 in 1967)

and here's another very old favourite of mine just for the hell of it - The Mamas and the Papas Dedicated to the one I love.

Lovely choices, Snow White. Both of those tracks would definitely be in a smooching volume of mine and by definition probably not springing to mind, but both great tracks.

Maybe we should put the next album together with a theme to it?

they used to have a programme on Capital Radio where they'd announce a theme and people would nominate records for it e.g. Songs for a Traffic Warden - the Bitch is back; songs to play at Prince Charles wedding - it should have been me. Songs for the heart surgeon Christian Barnard - I've got you under my skin. It was called six of hte best.

Ooh yes, you're in - no greatest hits album would be as good without Nights in White Satin.
I too loved it (also a few years after it came out!). Still do, though it's one of those I listened to to the point of boredom in my early years, unfortunately.

I'll join you in starting Volume III, Em... Here's a couple...

1) I am a big fan of much modern, classical and Romantic and especially much early music - (i.e. c500-1750) but this track would be the one I would choose above all others:

The Long And Winding Road - The Beatles with Sir Paul on lead vocals. (NB This video is one for the purists - no Phil Spector "Wall of Sound" over-dubbing with the string-fest - just the Fab Four plus keyboard). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COMsKPeWAsw

2) National anthems are strange things - we appreciate (or not) them as pieces of music but they also carry vast symbolic baggage. I especially hate the Italian one but have no such feelings for Italy. I especially like the USA one, despite having no such feeling for the USA. But I know I am being unbiased (!!) in saying the Welsh one is the best. (He ducks for cover).

Though I cannot see the credit for this, I suspect it is Bryn Terfel singing with a Welsh choir backing. (I have that album and this is very similar). Oh and, by the way, if one reads all the lyrics in some versions, they are very strident and anti-English - just as the British national anthem is very anti-Scottish in some versions. Good job we all live in harmony these days!

PS The Welsh National Anthem may be the only one in the World to mention "poets" - lyrics on the video. Cymru am byth! (as it says on the video, too)
