25/05/2013 in Uncategorized

1. Gezoem van die bye – Des Lindberg (1)
2.Distant drums – Jim Reeves (2)
3. Darling, it’s wonderful – Virginia Lee (6)
4. Pied piper – Crispian St. Peters (nuut)
5. Barbara-Ann – Beach Boys (3)
6. Substitute – The Who (8)
7. Elusive butterfly – Bob Lynn (4)
8. Elusive butterfly – Judy Page (5)

Vir die 3 weke wat Des Lindberg op no.1 was, het Jim Reeves (na 2 weke bo), heeltyd in sy nek geblaas. Die twee skoenlappers vlieg  vir oulaas saam, terwyl “Barbara-Ann” se ster ook aan’t verskiet is.

Die liedjie hieronder verskyn in my boek tussen “I’ll do as much for you someday” (Slim Whitman) en “I wouldn’t trade you for the world” (Bachelors).

Wednesday Child (Matt Monroe)
Wednesday child is a child of woe
Wednesday child cries lone I know
When you smiled, just for a while
For a while I forgot I was Wednesday child.

Friday child wins at love, they say
In you arms Friday was my day
Now you’re gone
Well, I sure have known
I’m Wednesday child, born to be alone
Wednesday child, born to be alone.

2. Distant drums – Jim Reeves (2)
3. Barbara-Ann – Beach Boys (3)

Die week was daar net veranderings op 2 van die 8 plekke. Baie ongewoon. Netso die dominering van vlieende insekte (3 uit die top 5 plekke).

Daar was na Jim Reeves se stem verwys as ‘n ‘warm’ stem. Virginia Lee se stem kan ook so beskryf word:

Darling, it’s wonderful to be in love with you
Darling, it’s wonderful to know you love me too
Gee, it’s so wonderful to hear you sigh my name
It’s so divine to know that you feel the same.

My welcome home at night with a hug and a kiss
All day long , my love, your sweet kisses I miss
Darling, it’s wonderful to have someone like you
As long as you’re my love, I’ll never be blue.

Our welcome home at night with a hug and a kiss
All day long , my love, your sweet kisses I miss
Darling it’s wonderful to have someone like you
As long as you’re my love, I’ll never be blue.

Virginia Lee was tevore op die hit parade in ‘n duet met Slim Whitman (Tennessee Yodel-Polka).

Ahem (Is ons al oud genoeg hiervoor?)

1. Let me tell you about the birds and the bees

And the flowers and the trees

And the moon up above

And a thing called love.

2. Let me tell you about the stars in the sky

And a girl and a guy

And the way they could kiss

On a night like this.

3. When I look into your big brown eyes

It’s so very plain to see

That it’s time you learned about the facts of life

Starting from A to Z.

(Herhaal 1, dan 3, dan 1)

Hit Parade: 7 Mei 1966

Hierdie pos is alweer Saterdagoggend gestoor ipv gepubliseer!

1. Distant drums – Jim Reeves (1)
2. Barbara-Ann – Beach Boys (3)
3. Die gezoem van die bye – Des Lindberg (nuut)
4. Ballade of the green berets – Sgt. Sadler (2)
5. The 19th nervous breakdown – Rolling Stones (4)
6. To whom it concerns – Chris Andrews (6)
7. A well-respected man – Kinks (8)
8. These boots are made for walking – Nancy Sinatra (5)

Chris Andrews se liedjie wat steeds nie ‘n klokkie laat lui nie was al vir 7 weke op die hit parade. “Die gezoem” was ‘n vrye vertaling van ‘n engelse liedjie oor ‘n luilekkerland waar “the bulldogs all had rubber teeth”. Ek het steeds “zero tolerance” vir plagiaat in enige vorm. Die liriek is van “Guilty”, nog een van Jim Reeves se nommer 1-treffers van ‘n paar jaar tevore:

I’ve been accused, convicted and condemned
The trial’s over, and now I face the end
Is this your way of telling me we’re through
And all I’m guilty of is loving you.

You were the judge, the jury, all in one
You found me guilty, and now my term’s begun
I must confess I’ve never been untrue
And all I’m guilty of is loving you.

Loving you, and now I’m losing you
Losing you for things I didn’t do.

Now let your heart consider an appeal
For now you know exactly how I feel
Don’t punish me for things I didn’t do
And all I’m guilty of is loving you
Yes, all I’m guilty of is loving you.

Vir die Stormers is dit neusie verby vir vanjaar se Super 15 trofee na hul vyfde nederlaag, vier daarvan weens onnosel besluite en een weens ‘n korrupte skeidsregterbeslissing. Die nederlae teen die Bulls en Sharks was weens Allister se besluit om die Stormers te verdun met substandaard Lions-spelers. Teen die Crusaders het die ref hul verkoop met die beslissende strafskop (die speler wat kwansuis nie weggerol het nie was op sy voete). Teen die Cheetahs het Nic Groom drie flaters begaan, o.a. ‘n tikskoppie reg voor die pale, daarby “Useless” Jantjies (onthou iemand nog  vir “Useless” Lawless) se kopklem wat nog drie punte gekos het. Gister het die Blues nooit gelyk na ‘n wenspan nie, maar 18 punte aangeteken met 6 strafdoele. Die Stormers het 1 punt kort geeindig omdat verskeie maklike strafskoppe (een binne die kwartgebied en regoor die regoppaal) kantlyn toe geskop is. Kan iemand my inlig, is dit die kaptein wat besluite op die veld neem of volg hy net instruksies van die “afrigter”?
