Katherine has discovered music videos. The somewhat dated adult pop music kind. To be precise, she found Herman’s Hermits.
I have a couple of mp3s of Herman’s Hermits playing on Ed Sullivan and had not realised that they were, in fact, mpegs. I upgraded Winamp today and it must have changed some file associations, because we were listening merrily to a wild mixture of music from Wonderful Grand Band, Doug and the Slugs and Great Big Sea, when up popped up a video screen. I had inadvertently selected a Herman’s Hermits song and it had a video attached.
1965. Herman’s Hermits playing Ed Sullivan. I’m Henry VIII I Am. (I actually quite it, or did, until today. My tolerance is waning quickly.)
She’s in love. I had to repeat it for her eight times. And the song only has one verse, repeated three times per performance. Mathematically speaking, I heard about the marital habits of Henry’s wife twenty-four times.
Now she’s “Into Something Good” which is at least a change…..
