        This young girl (going on 25 :rolleyespink: with her attitude :)) sings a song lots of people know under different names.

        It is more commonly known nowadays as "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", but in the mid 20th Century was known as "Wimoweh". I first heard it sung as its original name of "Mbube" (Lion, in the Zulu language) when I was working out there 60 :hate-shocked: years ago :old:

        Listen to the voice of the even younger girl behind her when she does some of the chorus.



        I also have a 1920's recording of the song on an old 78rpm shellac record (actually says speed 80rpm).

              'Once' by James Herbert. I've signed up to the 30 day free trial with 'Audible' - which is the audio book branch of Amazon.

              Have been listening to it in the garden using the old bluetooth ear buds - I'm quite enjoying it - so it looks like the free trial may well be extended.

              For anyone interested, the monthly fee is £7.99 for which you get one book of your choice per month and access to a number of 'free' 'Audible' audio books. The unabridged audio books are around 15 hours long.

              You get to keep the audio books - you do not need to be a current paid up member to use them.

                Only song of hers I like, thought this rawer version recorded in her studio was beautiful...



                Very few manage a decent Cocteau Twins cover but Arctic Lake did it! :blue thumb: Heard it on Back To Life, great little show that I enjoyed binge-watching in its entirety at the weekend!



                Not much comment required, it's Willie's song and he sings it brilliantly! :love30:
