I am not ashamed to say I love Big Band week. The live orchestra always shows up the ones who have been carried along by a backing trackgrin

Here are the songs-

Abi Alton – That’s Life

Hannah Barrett – This Is A Man’s World

Luke Friend – Moondance

Nicholas McDonald – Dream A Little Dream

Rough Copy – Hit The Road Jack

Sam Bailey – New York New York

Sam Callahan – Ain’t That A Kick In The Head

Tamera Foster – Cry Me A River

Needless to say, they aren't all exactly Big band tracks.

Where is 'Mack the Knife'?? Someone always does 'Mack the Knife'

and no Mickey Bubbles either,which makes mesad.

We have Robbie 'album to plug' Williams and Celine 'why sing one note when you can sing a dozen' Dion.

I need wine

Lots and lots of wine

Sorry, Duff Copy- the lack of bold was not intentional.

But could it be an omen?grin

Dillydollydaydream Sat 09-Nov-13 11:50:39

Raahh Sat 09-Nov-13 12:11:28

Evening all!

Loose Screw got a visit from Michael Bolton this week.

SuePurblybilt Sat 09-Nov-13 18:22:15

I saw that. RIP to the barnet, eh?

Are they all being 'mentored' followed about by slebs who don't know why they're there and Apeface ?

Raahh Sat 09-Nov-13 18:24:00

Michael Bolton- that's current and modern, that is. grin

Am a bit all over the place today. Ds went to China last Tuesday with school- and I'm missing him a bit today. He's not back til Friday-so I need X Factor ro be good to distract megrin

Joan is going to be drowned out by the Big Band. Unless they can get away with it just being 'big piano'.


SuePurblybilt Sat 09-Nov-13 18:29:39

Oh Raah, ducky, I would be in bits <hugs and strong drink>
He'll be grand, though.

Joan will be woeful, but that's a given

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Sat 09-Nov-13 18:29:56

Looking forward to it. I reckon Joan might be in trouble - big band week cannot be her forte.

How on earth does Sausage know that it's a man's world? She's only 16 for Christ sakes.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Sat 09-Nov-13 18:32:56

Raahh that sounds tough. DD1 went away on her first school trip last Feb (year 4) and it was only for 3 nights and I was a MESS. An honest-to-goodness quivering, blubbering mess. Twas not a pretty sight. I would/will not be able to handle China. FFS she only went to York.

IamInvisible Sat 09-Nov-13 18:34:30

China shockhe'll be absolutely fine. I bet it is amazing over there, really.

I would be in bits too. I drove DH mad when DS1 went to Malia with his mates. I texted DS1 about 500 times once or twice.

more wine

It's going to be car crash telly tonight.

Raahh Sat 09-Nov-13 20:00:37

of course, the main event today is the first tv viewing of the JL ad. even though everyone has prob seen it online


SuePurblybilt Sat 09-Nov-13 20:01:28

I LOVE the JL ad. LOVE.

So, drinking game tonight. Down in one for each appearance of Pinhead (is he ever OUT of the jeffing audience) or Apeface.

Evening :-)

Not the first disappointing blowing Louis has been responsible for, I'm guessing.
