Bitter Sweet Song.

I have developed a bit of a new hobby when I watch good old You Tube.  I type in concerts that I have been to in the past and sometimes there was somebody there who recorded it and put it on You Tube.  I will give you a few new and old examples over the next week.

Do you ever get songs stuck in your head playing along?  I had Roar by  Katie Perry playing in my head last week.  I think Psychologists must rewrite the songs or either that I just have the knack of remembering some really strange songs.

Any way.  For years I have had a song stuck in my head.  I first heard at a Christian musical festival called Greenbelt in about 1979  or 1983.   It was in the grounds of Knebworth House.  The same very place that  Led Zeppelin had played there not to forget Mr Charles Dickens often visited Knebworth House, but not for the rock god concerts.

So last month I was looking up this song that I remembered and guess what I found it.  It wasn't "Bitter sweet wine" like me myself and I thought it was: "Bitter sweet song. "

Here goes:

Have you ever found a song that you couldn't remember the title?  


  1. Jimmy Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock singing "if you were a Bluebird". This is one of our favourite country songs and we couldn't remember anything except the name Hancock and the word Bluebird. We last heard it in the early 1980s. I found it by googling "Hancock singing about a bluebird" and found it straightaway on Youtube.

  2. Hi Rachel. Never heard of the Bluebird song before. Country and Irish (Western) and traditional music is very big in Ireland. Thanks for your comment.

  3. you know me Dave I am a sucker for all music. I could go with out TV as long as I had my music. Its like my head cant cope with the silence so I sing to myself a lot. I was singing Grandad and matchstick men. My great nieces think it is a right lark dancing around

  4. I watch a lot of my old music on the Vintage music channel Sol. Like your self I have a very eclectic taste in music. Keep dancing Sol!
