Wow, whole lot a water going round these past few weeks. And we're going to stay the course." Ol Man River" probably would keep rolling down the river with Ike and Tina. Enjoy,
Last week Tel did win wiv Ol Man River which be from the musical Showboat. Showboat be a collaboration between Oscar Hammerstein and Jerome Kerr (and PG Woodhouse) but usually we fink of Hammerstein’s musicals wiv Richard Rodgers and we chooses one of our faves from South Pacific.
Last week Terence Terrier won with Old Man River sung by Roderick Williams, Paul Robeson sang it in Showboat, my link is Paul Robeson singing Shenandoah.
Well done Tel with “Ole man river” from Showboat. The Mississippi River rolls on and doesn’t care. The other thing that doesn’t care is time. I have chosen a song from another musical, the new Hamilton. This is the ending number, “Who live, who dies, who tells your story”.
Well done Sir T with your link O’l Man River performed at the Last Night of the Proms. We did go to the LNOTP a couple of years ago so for our link we have chosen our fav song from that (despite our Celtic heritage) - “Jerusalem” - William Blake & Sir Hubert Parry.
Ol Man River is from a moosical wot is called Show Boat. A show boat dus be a boat wot is a floating theatre. Showboating has also come to mean someone who wants their behaviour to be seen at all costs where a person will do something flashy instead of achieving their goals. Boxers are well known for their showboating style before a fight. Most notable of these are Muhammad Ali. Ali called himself The Greatest (well deserved as it turned out). He floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee, the great Ali. So my link is a song about the greatest showboater of them all. Muhammad Ali from Faithless.
