The Midweek Hop - Bake Me A Cake

The other half's guest post - 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...Bake Me A Cake
Inspired by last night's Great British Bake Off final.
Congratulations Frances!
1. If I Knew You Were Coming I'd Have Baked A Cake by Sesame Street

This was originally made a hit by Eileen Barton in 1950 but this version is much better methinks!
'If I Knew You Were Coming I'd Have Baked A Cake' Ernie and Cookie Monster style appeared on the first series of Sesame Street back in 1969.

2. Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty

Named after the street of the same name in London  - which I'm obviously imagining has just a line of bakeries and cake shops...
'Baker Street' entered the charts on 18th February 1978 reaching Number 3.

3. Hey Good Lookin' by Hank Williams

When blues met country and western, rock and roll was born...
'Hey Good Lookin'' entered the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in June 1951 reaching Number 1. 

Happy listening!
