Just before the thoroughly joyous afternoon of group singing and harmonies, I indulged myself by singing some songs on my own before opening up the old chapel in West Bay for Force8.org This be they! Gloomy Sunday (recorded by lots of people), Blue Would Still Be Blue (by the Guillemots), and Tonight the Streets Are Ours (by Richard Hawley). Slide mandolin on the first, ukulele with the others. I make mistakes in all of them, laugh at inappropriate moments in Gloomy Sunday and am singing a bit flat in Blue… but I don’t care because I loved singing and playing them in the chapel.
NB: it’s a YouTube playlist, so the other songs will follow (or click on top left of the player window) even if it looks like only one of them is here
