I`m just having a little listen to number 29 My Sweet Lord. I`ve got out of the running order !!

I`ll probably bore everyone going on about it ! We`re back in lockdown from Friday evening so I`ll need something to cheer me up !!

Pennines, next to Billy, Raul Malo has become my favourite. It`s a pity we don`t see him here in the UK.

He's certainly a lovely singer - and with some great songs - I have to confess though, I have never heard of him before you introduced him on here, Billy.

Neil Diamond is now my favourite and has been for years -- saw him in Birmingham ages ago - and then at Manchester (MEN) in 2010. I was a bit worried as he was getting on a bit by then -- but he was fantastic.

I think some of the older singers get better with age, unfortunately some should have given up years ago!! This from someone who can`t sing a note !!

Just had an hour listening to them and then (as you do) going off to listen to one or two others. He is great - we loved his singing, his attitude and his neckwear  :)

Paul McCartney ought to have retired long ago.
So too Engelbert Humperdink .
Tom Jones was not bad at all the last time I heard him.
It is not as if they need the money!
 You wonder how others  would  have fared .
Like Kelly the totally unaffected singer with The Dubliners ,wonder how he
would have aged.?
Only in his forties when he died from a brain tumour .
Some people you cannot imagine ageing .

I liked the fact that you loved his neckwear, Heywood! That made me laugh.

It’s my husband- he loved the scarves and cravats.  :D
I sent it to my family and got a message that my 11 yr old grandson was very embarrassed at his mother’s singing, dancing and arm waving To ‘Sweet Caroline’. They were the only two in the room  ;D

Oh my goodness -- this thread is causing me to remember some of my favourite songs from times gone by.

Don McLean - American Pie and others
Roy Orbison - most of his - fantastic voice
Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody

and lots, lots more! I expect YouTube has become really busy this year --- and how wonderful that you can just go onto that site and bring back memories.

"Unchained Melody" has to be Jimmy Young  :)

Pat Boone, Everly Brothers, Ricky Nelson, and how about Bill Haley & The Comets.  ;D
