As it's Walk in the Park Day today, our theme is Walking and/or Walking in the Park songs.
Note: The theme was decided some weeks in advance. Who would have thought most of us would be in lockdown due to that evil virus thingy back then?
Even if you can't get out to the park today due to lockdown and social distancing, you can still sit back and listen to some great walking songs from the safety of your own home.
Before we get onto our song list, Mum would like to say a huge thanks to Cathy for inviting her to co-host. It's been lovely and fun. We've loved sharing our music choices with you and we hope you all enjoyed them!
Keep safe and keep listening to music, everyone xx
THE STRAY CATS - Stray Cat StrutWell, of course, we're gonna pick this one! Cats rule and this is a super cool song. Mum tells me it's from the early 80s.
SAM BROWN - Walking Back to MeOne of Mum's favourite female singers.
THE POLICE - Walking on the MoonWalking on the moon sounds fun, doesn't it? Cool song from a very long time ago!
NIGHTWISH - Walking In The AirTarja Turunen was the original lead vocalist of Nightwish and she sang on their cover version of this song which was written by Howard Blake for the 1982 animated film of Raymond Briggs' children's book The Snowman.
Here is another version of the song by her
The one below is from a live performance in 2000 at Tampere, Finland.
THE SMALL FACES - Itchycoo ParkThis is so catchy and Mum has always liked it. She is really into that 60s music scene and most of her favourite songs are from that era. This is from 1967 - a very long time ago and Mum was only a baby!
THE LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA MacArthur ParkWe prefer this version to the original by Richard Harris
