With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Come and sing with me and throw all your cares away” May 19, 2014

David O’Brien was once a part of the Les Humphries Singers and in 1976 he performed “Sing Sang Song” at the Eurovision Song Contest with them. They represented Germany and sang the song in German; or should that be they sing sang song in German!

Mr O’Brien is also the father of soulful UK chanteuse and Brit School alumni Katy B. Given the family connection maybe we should ask her to represent the UK at next years contest. “Sing Sang Song” finished in 15th place in a year where the UK actually won. The crown was taken by Brotherhood Of Man with “Save All Your Kisses For Me“; not one of my favourite songs!
