Anyone brave enough to admit they remember "The Creep?"

:dj: Back when "This were all fields" and my dad had his first of many apopletic fits on seeing my yellow socks, D.A.hairstyle and crepe soled shoes:evil4: ;- about the time that 2 Badge Mango bought his first Guy Mitchell 78
There was a dance also a song and instrumental called The Creep.I think the instrumental was by Stan Kenton but will stand corrected. Well, I've had the tune in my head for fcuking days now and I cannot track it down on Google, Jeeves or Youtube. I know it exists. Can anyone help me with a link please?=\\\\\\\')

Jesse, I am so glad to hear that you now have The Creep. :wink: I have to agree with you, the music back then was fabulous. During the few years that I attended boarding school, I would escape to my Grandfathers home at the weekends where I would play his records - mostly Dance Band music, Stan Kenton, Charlie Barnet, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Perez Prado and the like - I grew up listening to them. :icon_smile:

Wrong again Jesse! By 1954 most of my GM 78s were nearly worn out, and I'd met up with a rather nice girl who I took a real shine to.
She's sat watching some crap about dancing (on TV at the moment), while I've retired to my "den".

I'm an unashamed fan of Sinatra. I have 141 different albums (33.3). I remember well Henry Hall's Guest night and Happidrome. 'We three in Happidrome, working for the BBC...Ramsbottom, Enoch and me' (Mr Lovejoy). Does that make me officially 'old' ?

Carol Levis and his Discoveries: Monday Night at Eight O'Clock. Henry Hall's son did his National Service in the navy. Had the odd run ashore with him We spent the night in an army cell somewhere in Scotland having missed the last Liberty Boat to Implacable. Danced in a large number of places in this world to Sinatra.-Brilliant. The last time was when we lived in Spain Went to a Spanish do with band and they played and sang Sinatra type songs in English. Remember Edmundo Ros. He was at the do, as he lives in Javea. He was a hundred a few weeks ago

And Much Binding in the Marsh, and Round the Horne ..

Wasn’t “Round The Horne” a later version of “Beyond Our Ken”?

Who can forget Dame Celia Molestrangler, Cecil Snaith, Rambling Sid Rumpold and Julian and Sandy.

Remember listening to those and Forces Favourites during Sunday lunch? Usually roast beef because chicken was more expensive.:-|

Yes, The Navy Lark, of course. Never thought then that we would take part in our own version of that later in life, did we? Well, I didn't:slow:
