The Midweek Hop - Alchemy

Three music videos on a theme...
(inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round')


'Wurlitzer 1500' 1952 Jukebox
'Wurlitzer 1500' 1952 Jukebox
 
 
This weeks theme is...Alchemy
Inspired by National Science and Engineering Week (14th to 23rd March)



1. Robot Man by Connie Francis


Doesn't every girl sometimes wish she had a robot man?
'Robot Man' was a double-A side with 'Mama' which entered the chart on 19th May 1960 reaching Number 2.


2. Up in a Puff of Smoke by Polly Brown


Something which I hope Andrew *won't* be doing in his workshop anytime soon!
'Up in a Puff of Smoke' entered the chart on 14th September 1974 reaching Number 43.


3. Gonna Be An Engineer by Peggy Seeger


Unfortunately, I think that's a tale which is all too true sometimes!
'Gonna Be An Engineer' is from 1970 but we can't find out much info about this one.
 
 
Happy listening!
