If you fancy a quick Sherbet right now,

0:04:250:04:27

all I can say is, how's dat?!

0:04:270:04:30

# You told me I was the one

0:04:430:04:46

# The only one who got your head undone

0:04:480:04:53

# And for a while I believed the line that you spun

0:04:530:04:58

# But I've been lookin' at you

0:05:010:05:05

# Lookin' closely at the things you do

0:05:070:05:11

# I didn't see you the way you wanted me to

0:05:110:05:17

# How...how...howzat?

0:05:180:05:20

# You messed about, I caught you out, howzat?

0:05:220:05:25

# Now that I've found where you're at

0:05:270:05:30

# It's goodbye

0:05:300:05:31

# Well, howzat?

0:05:320:05:35

# It's goodbye

0:05:350:05:39

# You only came for a smile

0:05:420:05:46

# Even though you're really not my style

0:05:470:05:51

# I didn't think that you'd run me round like you do

0:05:510:05:58

# How...how...howzat?

# Ah-ah-ah-ah

0:06:480:06:52

# Well, I've been looking at you

0:07:010:07:05

# And I see

0:07:050:07:07

# Looking closely at the things you do

0:07:070:07:10

# Be careful

0:07:100:07:11

# I didn't see you the way you wanted me to

0:07:110:07:17

# How...how...howzat?

0:07:180:07:20

That was the sound of Sherbet and Howzat? Yes, more indeed.

0:08:050:08:08

It's always nice to welcome a newcomer to the top 30,

0:08:080:08:11

especially when it's somebody who has written the song they sing.

0:08:110:08:15

That applies to this next gentleman.

Great, that was Simon May and the Summer of My Life.

0:12:150:12:18

After his last Top Of The Pops, Tony Blackburn was very worried.

0:12:180:12:22

He wasn't feeling well and saw a doctor.

0:12:220:12:24

His doctor said, "Don't worry".

0:12:240:12:25

He gave him a medical. "You've got nothing to worry about.

0:12:250:12:28

"You've got the body of a 20-year-old man.

0:12:280:12:30

"The only thing is, the 20-year-old man wants it back." Never mind.

0:12:300:12:34

Let's Play That Funky Music with Ruby Flipper.

0:12:340:12:37

# Hey, get down

0:12:420:12:46

# Yeah-hey

0:12:490:12:50

# Once I was a boogie singer

0:12:540:12:56

# Playin' in a rock 'n roll band

0:12:580:13:02

# I never had no problems, yeah

0:13:030:13:06

# Burnin' down the one-night stands

0:13:070:13:10

# And everything around me, yeah

0:13:120:13:15

# Got to start to feelin' so low

0:13:160:13:20

# And I decided quickly

0:13:200:13:23

# Yes, I did

0:13:230:13:24

# To disco down and check out the show

0:13:240:13:28

# Yeah, they were dancin' and singin'

0:13:280:13:31

# And movin' to the groovin'

0:13:310:13:33

# And just when it hit me

0:13:330:13:36

# Somebody turned around and shouted

0:13:360:13:38

# Play that funky music, white boy

0:13:380:13:42

# Play that funky music right

0:13:420:13:45

# Play that funky music, white boy

0:13:470:13:50

# Lay down the boogie

0:13:510:13:54

# And play that funky music till you die

0:13:540:13:57

# Till you die, oh, till you die

0:13:570:14:01

# Going to play some electrified funk

0:14:010:14:04

# Now, first it wasn't easy

0:14:220:14:24

# Changin' rock 'n roll at Myze

0:14:260:14:30

# And things were gettin' shaky

0:14:300:14:33

# I thought I'd have to leave it behind

0:14:350:14:38

# But now it's so much better

0:14:380:14:42

# Yeah, so much better

0:14:420:14:43

# I'm funking out in every way

0:14:430:14:47

# But I'll never lose that feeling

0:14:470:14:51

# You know I won't

0:14:510:14:52

# Of how I learned my lesson that day

0:14:520:14:56

# When they were dancin' and singin'

0:14:570:14:59

# And movin' to the groovin'

0:14:590:15:01

# And just when it hit me

0:15:010:15:03

# Somebody turned around and shouted

0:15:030:15:06

# Play that funky music, white boy

0:15:060:15:09

0:15:100:15:14

# Play that funky music, white boy

0:15:140:15:19

# Well, you can hear the country song from far

0:25:260:25:31

# And someone play the honky-tonky guitar

0:25:340:25:38

# Where all the lights will go out one by one

0:25:410:25:46

# The people join the sun

0:25:480:25:51

# And the wind takes it away

0:25:510:25:54

# Where the Mississippi rolls down to the sea

0:25:570:26:02

# And lovers found the place they like to be

0:26:050:26:11

# How many times before the song was ending

0:26:120:26:18

# Love and understanding everywhere around

0:26:180:26:25

# Mississippi

0:26:280:26:36

# I'll remember you

0:26:370:26:42

# Whenever I shall go away

0:26:440:26:47

# I'll be longing for the day

0:26:470:26:51

0:27:200:27:24

# Until the end of time

0:27:240:27:27

# Now the country song forever lost its soul

0:27:360:27:41
