The Show: Fruit Salad

Cover versions open and close this week’s show.

We kicked off with Frankie Rose’s (almost) note perfect copy of The Cure’s “A Forest”. Always had a soft spot for the original since seeing it performed on Top Of The Pops with the drummer sitting in front of the group. Revolutionary stuff.

On a more sobering note, this recent take on a 41 year old song would equate to The Cure, back in 1980, covering the likes of Glenn Miller or Gene Autry.

And the Wiggles brought the curtain down by going slightly off-piste with Tame Impala’s “Elephant.” At least we think it’s off-piste. We certainly don’t remember the “fruit salad” refrain in the original song.

And on with the show…

The Show: Every time we meet we play hide and seek

It’s taken a little over 11 months but The Herb Whisperer has finally managed to watch his first complete film of 2020 – Steve McQueen’s “Lovers Rock”. Admittedly, it’s only 70 minutes long so it wasn’t much of a stretch.  Plus 10 of those 70 minutes were comprised of just one song, the extended (then a cappella) version of Janet Kay’s “Silly Games” that closes today’s show
