Well we have managed to find 40 groups in the "H" bracket and just one yellow card today so a pretty good day with one of the semi tricky letters! Tomorrow we move on to an even trickier one in my view so it will be interesting to see what surfaces. The calendar now looks like this:

I'll start off with Iron Butterfly - In A Gadda Da Vida. Put aside 17 minutes to do it justice.

Wait a minute... This sounds like rock and/or roll!

Ike & Tina Turner - River Deep Mountain High. They were a band weren't they? Anyway, too good not to include. Annie Mae Bullock in full voice.

The Ink Spots were one of my dad's favourites - he called them the Stink Pots

Never heard of Imagine dragons but looks like they can create a video with 28 million views. Another one of their offerings Bad liar got 267 million views!

Not to my taste, but plenty must like the track.

I'm heading down obvious strasse with the Isley Brothers. Harvest for the world is a class song, I've always liked this old heart of mine, and while those in the know will know Twist and Shout was not an original beatles song, and the isley brothers were first to have a hit with it with their version of the song.

Harvest for the World gets the nod

I heard of them through "The Commander In Chief" (Berit Hagen) but thought that "Imagine Dragons" was a film or something.

Looked it up and got that completely wrong, it was Dragon Age.
Not her usual stuff at all.
