The Secret of the Sounds of the Sixties

I have just discovered why there was so much great music in the nineteen-sixties.

It's because Nature likes to achieve a balance.

Sunrise - - Sunset. The Poles - - the Tropics. Winter - - Summer. That kind of thing.

And so, in the Sixties, on one side of the scale we had the Beatles, the Stones, the Tremeloes, Gerry and the Pacemakers, the Beach Boys and many, many others.

Why so many great groups?

I have found out the secret and it is, because in 1966, hidden away somewhere in Russia, there was this.



In the balance of nature, it took every single top group to tip the scales against it. Go on, I dare you, watch it to the end. Its singer is still around and still with those serial-killer eyes. All together now. "Tro-lo-lo-lo-lo - - - "

Never mind, there's still one day of the Bank Holiday weekend left for you to get it out of your head.

Why are you poking fun at this year's Finnish entry for the ESC ? Puts our entry to shame.

I kept expecting John Cleese to come on and slap him with a wet halibut.

I only got halfway through... he kept reminding me of how a certain G Brown might look if he was advised by his spin doctors to sing to the public. Truly scary.
