Beautiful Chickens

A couple of fine chugging tunes from 1970s Zimbabwe courtesy of the delightfully - and suitably for a Sunday - named Hallelujah Chicken Run Band.

"Mwana Wamai Dada Naye" - Hallelujah Chicken Run Band

When I was in Rome a couple of weeks ago I was rather taken with the delightfully scatty receptionist at the hotel. The feeling appeared to be mutual, as when I left she clasped my hand, looked deep into my eyes and said in a sultry voice, "You are a beautiful chicken".

I suspect something may have got lost in translation but it was clearly heartfelt. So today's clip is a tribute to the lovely Anna at the Hotel Domus Tiberina. The oldies among you will recognise the tune.


  1. Ernie, my beautiful chicken, I SO want these songs to be good, what a fantastic name for a group.

  2. And they are. Excellent examples of the chugging genre.

  3. We are all big fans of the chugging genre Ernie

  4. Amazing. Thanks you for sharing this.
