    Sorry, had to turn that off after about twenty seconds. It's not the same song, is it?

    I liked "I am a Cathedral" better than his big hit. And the one about frozen orange juice.
    Great lyrics:
    I'll buy you one more frozen orange juice
    On this fantastic day
    We'll walk the sunny hills of Madrid
    Laughing all the way

    And if you feel you wanna run, down to the beach
    A place that no one else has ever seen before

    He once bought me a Gin and Tonic in The Ritz. Yes he did for a laugh, ahaha.

    Actually he didn't, but even though I'm obviously way too young, that song, became a bit of a cult thing for me and my sister. RIP Peter Sarstedt.

    Another funny thing about him is that, at the time, it never occurred to me that he was of Indian descent. He was born in Delhi apparently. Same with Freddie Mercury - I never thought of him having Asian blood either (born of Parsi descent, grew up in Zanzibar and India).

    Mind you, I never thought of Shirley Bassey being of mixed race until recently! Maybe it's just that years ago we never really noticed these things. They were just singers.

    Or it might just be me :)

    That song instantly conjures up memories of the 1960s.

    I wonder where he's gone to?

    The Navy version is more interesting,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    You sing like Marlene Deitrich and dance like Biffo the Bear.
    Your clothes are all made by Pusser
    and there's lice in your pubic hair...................

    I remember the back streets of Naples
    The children all dressed in rags
    I remember you stole all their money
    For a pint and a packet of fags
    yes you did...Haha ha.

    It gets worse as it goes on so won't go there,

    Not a one hit wonder but his subsequent hits were less than memorable so might as well be considered as one. 75 so not a bad innings.
