The Midweek Hop - Happy Birthday to Me!

The other half's guest post - three music videos on a theme...
(inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round')
'Ami E 120' 1953 Jukebox
'Ami E 120' 1953 Jukebox
This weeks theme is...Happy Birthday to Me!
Inspired by my birthday on Friday this week, so here's three of my favourite jukebox songs.

1. Have I The Right by The Honeycombs

Produced by the infamous producer, Joe Meek, the stamping sound on the record was created by banging brooms on a floor!
'Have I The Right' entered the chart on 23rd July 1964 reaching Number 1.

2. Those Were The Days by Mary Hopkin

My mum used to have a musical jewellery box which played this tune - I listened to it rather a lot as a child.
'Those Were The Days' entered the chart on 4th September 1968 reaching Number 1.

3. The Swiss Maid by Del Shannon

A cautionary tale, yodelling and um pah pahs? Oh yes...
'The Swiss Maid' entered the chart on 11th October 1962 reaching Number 2.
Happy listening!


Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a toddler gets in the way...
