In the words of Moby Grape… listen, my friends! Yes, it’s the (hopefully) monthly playlist presented by George’s Journal just for you good people.

There may be one or two classics to be found here dotted in among different tunes you’re unfamiliar with or have never heard before – or, of course, you may’ve heard them all before. All the same, why not sit back, listen away and enjoy…

¹ The official anthem performed by the early ’60s skiffle king for the 1966 football World Cup, won of course by Alf Ramsay’s England 50 years ago today

² From the soundtrack of that family musical movie masterpiece with the magical car, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)

³ The original version, performed by blues and soul legend Otis Clay, that in summer 1988 became a five-week UK chart-topper for Yazz and the Plastic Population

4 The incredibly familiar video to the Groover from Vancouver’s humongously successful single from the soundtrack of medieval box-office blockbuster Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves (1991), released 25 years ago this summer; the tune topped the UK charts for a (still) record 16 consecutive weeks between July 7 and October 26 1991.
