Reflections of Charlie Brown - Rupert's People

Songfacts about Charlie Brown (as I don't think it will make the ten):

"Rupert's People was formed in 1967. Rod Lynton (real name Brosse) and Steve Brendell had been members of a North London band called the Extraverts who were said to be similar to The Kinks. The band split and Rod and Steve continued in Hard Edge although this did not last long. Ray Beverley joined on bass and Sweet Feeling started to rehearse, mostly with Rod Lynton's songs. They were good enough to gain a management contract with Howard Condor of the Robert Stigwood Agency. The group recorded a one-take demo acetate in the studio although this is believed to be lost for ever although a "single" acetate of a track called All So Long Ago is in existence. This was later released as a single on Colombia with Charles Brown on the b-side.

Sweet Feeling evolved and Rod was asked to change Charles Brown and put it to the tune of Air on a G String. It was retitled Reflections of Charles Brown. Les Fleurs de Lys were recruited to play on the track as well as the excellent Hold On. Peter Solley also joined for the sessions on organ. He was later in Procol Harum. Les Fleurs de Lys pulled out leaving the manager with a record deal, a single but no band. However, the "virtual" band was christened Rupert's People. This was not the end of the Procol Harum connection though as Whiter Share of Pale was released around the same time and, like the Rupert's People track, was based around a classical piece. Reflections of Charles Brown was a moderate success while Whiter Shade of Pale was a blockbuster."

Bongo Bong / Je ne t'aime plus ~ Manu Chao (2000) Video

Mama was queen of the mambo

Papa was king of the Congo

deep down in the jungle

I start banging my first Bongo

every monkey like to be

in my place instead of me

'cause I'm the king of Bongo, baby

I'm the king of Bongo Bong

:grin:

Down in a Hole ~ Alice in Chains (1992) Video

Down in a hole and I don't know

if I can be saved

I sing my heart out decorated

like a grave

You don't understand who they

thought I was supposed to be

Look at me now a man

who won't let himself be

Black Gold - Soul Asylum (1992)

Keeps the kids off the streets

Gives 'em something to do, something to eat

This spot was a playground

This flat land used to be a town

Black gold in a white plight

Won't you fill up the tank, let's go for a ride

Sure like to feel some pride

But this place just makes me feel sad inside

Supposedly about the Gulf War :(
