Some Proper Music At Last

You can thank Regular Reader George for today's post. Or blame him. As you see fit.

Last time out I posted a clip of Paul Nicholas performing his popular 1975 hit "Reggae Like It Used To Be". George got in touch to express the trenchant and hard-hitting view that is was "not his best". Having taken a while to recover from the discovery that anyone could care enough to comment on a Paul Nicholas video, I decided I agreed with him.

We may, however, disagree on what Paul's best was. Judging by the rest of his comments, I think George would plump for "Grandma's Party", whereas I am very much a "Dancing With The Captain" man. Have a listen to them both, and make your own mind up.

"Grandma's Party" - Paul Nicholas

"Dancing With The Captain" - Paul Nicholas

Of course, back in the mid-1970s when Paul was at the height of his popularity, we were all dancing with the Captain. And with his lovely partner, Tennille.


  1. I' m a Dancing with the Captain man myself Ernie

    1. You are known to be a man of impeccable taste, CC. Hope you enjoyed the Tom Russell gig. It's been a few years since I've seen him, but he always used to put on a good show.

    2. My first time Ernie - he put on a great show

  2. Although Dancing With The Captain is a fine pop song it's still Grandma's Party for me. Is "Dancing with the captain" a euphemism? My internet searches suggest not, but maybe another of your regular readers knows?


  3. I'd by disappointed if it wasn't

  4. Paul Nicholas was in the film Tommy
