Three of a kind #14


Those of you who dislike whistling in songs should look away now! I know some people have an aversion to it but not me. Unless we're talking about Roger Whittaker. But generally speaking, a little well-placed whistling does absolutely no harm to a good song. Here are three great examples. You know how to whistle don't you? Just put your lips together and blow.

Oh Sweet Music! - Four Long Years mp3 (available for 7 days)

The Seekers - Georgy Girl mp3 (available for 7 days)

And the the classic example. Surely nobody can have anything against this song, can they?

Otis Redding - Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay mp3 (available for 7 days)



Bonus: Dolly Mixture - Whistling In The Dark mp3

Buy music by the artists featured from Amazon and visit Oh Sweet Music's myspace page.

Hmm. This all seems strangely familiar...

Yes, it's almost inconceivable that two different people writing music blogs can have the same idea within the space of a week. Call the copsh...

That Oh Sweet Music! track is magic, Spikey! Going to be whistling that all weekend now. And Georgy Girl, of course. Love it :D

Excellent! It's not just me who loves Georgy Girl, then.

It’s a good selection whoever had the idea first (it was me :) ). I’ve been giving serious consideration to borrowing your three of a kind concept. Lots of possibilities there.

Kippers said...

Sure, borrow away Mick. The possibilities for the whole Three of a kind thing are pretty infinite. (it's also handy if you can't be bothered to write a long, detailed entry about a specific artist and just want to quickly bung up some great songs!)

Come to think of it, didn't Gideon Coe do a thing about songs with whistling in them on his 6 Music Show a month or two back? In which case, he trumps the lot of you! ;)

i've been planning a whistling thing too - i can't remember the track that inspired me though. it just had brilliantly unexpected whistling right at the end...
