The Midweek Hop - When We Were Very Young

The other half's guest post - three music videos on a theme...
(inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round')

The legendary 'Wurlitzer 1015' 1946 Jukebox

This weeks theme is...When We Were Very Young
 
Inspired by Winnie the Pooh Day this Saturday (18th January) - all the songs (loosely) relate to bears...
Yep, Winnie the Pooh day actually exists - if you're anywhere near the Lake District, drop into Hundred Acre Wood and see if you can find The Enchanted Palace!



1. The Bear Necessities by Louis Armstrong


The classic jungle bear tune!
Taken from the 1967 Disney film, 'The Jungle Book', Louis Armstrong's version was never released as a single. 


2. Simon Smith and His Amazing Dancing Bear by Alan Price


Obviously dancing bears were two a penny on the streets of the 1960's...
'Simon Smith and His Amazing Dancing Bear' entered the chart on 2nd March 1967 reaching Number 4.


3. The Teddy Bears Picnic - Henry Hall and His Orchestra


The lyricist was from Taunton in Somerset and apparently the inspiration for the words came from a small scout hut in the town!
'The Teddy Bears Picnic' is from before the charts began - Henry Hall first popularised the tune in 1932.
 
 
Happy listening!

  1. I never knew Winnie the Pooh day existed! What a fabulous idea; lots of children will be playing Poohsticks this weekend. Love your song picks, Louisa!

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