Song Lyric Sunday, Fix / Make.

Hi everyone it’s Sunday again and Jim Adams our lovely host has given us a double prompt this week. The prompt is actually Fix/Make suggested by Amy Aisasami.

In 1962 I was nine years old. I remember my brother’s playing their music in their room of an evening. Being the youngest I was always first to bed. I would lie there and listen to my brother’s playing their music. Especially Adam Faith, there was something about his voice that haunted me then and still does to this day! I can’t find the lyrics to this song. But almost every verses line starts with Make her. EG.

Mix me a person make her of sunshine and roses

Terence Nelhams Wright (23 June 1940 – 8 March 2003), known as Adam Faith, was an English teen idol, singer, actor and financial journalist. He was one of the most charted acts of the 1960s. He became the first UK artist to lodge his initial seven hits in the Top 5. He was also one of the first UK acts to record original songs regularly.

While pursuing his musical career, Faith appeared in supporting roles in films such as Beat Girl (1960) and Never Let Go (1960), and television dramas such as the Rediffusion/ITV series No Hiding Place. In 1961, Faith starred in What a Whopper, supported by Sid JamesSpike MilliganWilfrid BrambellCarole Lesley and others well known at the time. A comedy about a writer staging a fake sighting of the Loch Ness Monster, it was written by Terry Nation, and had music by John Barry; Faith sang the title song and “The Time Has Come”. He had a bit part role in What a Carve Up! (1961) with Sid James and Kenneth Connor.

In 1962, Faith co-starred opposite Donald Sinden and Anne Baxter in the film Mix Me a Person, playing a working-class youth falsely accused of murder. The thriller was rated X-certificate (the modern equivalent would be a UK 18-certificate) by the British Board of Film Censors.

Following Faith’s 1968 departure from his record label EMI, he concentrated on acting, particularly repertory theatre. After a number of small parts, he was given a more substantial role in the play Night Must Fall, playing opposite Dame Sybil Thorndike. In autumn 1969, he took the lead in a touring production of Billy Liar.

Faith starred as the eponymous hero in the early 1970s television series Budgie (LWT/ITV), about an ex-convict. He was the subject of This Is Your Life in 1971 when he was surprised by Eamonn Andrews.

Faith’s acting career declined after a 1973 motor car accident in which he almost lost a leg. He restarted with a role in Stardust (1974) as the manipulative manager of rock star David Essex, for which he was nominated for a BAFTA award. Despite this success, he remained reluctant to act for some years, and turned back to music-related ventures.

In 1980, he starred with Roger Daltrey in McVicar, and again played a rock band manager in Foxes, starring Jodie Foster as his daughter.

Faith played the role of James Crane in the 1985 TV movie Minder on the Orient Express – part of the Minder franchise. From 1992 to 1994, he appeared in another TV series, Love Hurts, starring with Zoë Wanamaker.

In 2002, he appeared in the BBC series The House That Jack Built. In 2003, he appeared in an episode of Murder in Mind.

Now I have told you how much Adam Faith’s voice and songs haunted me as a child..here is a singer songwriter who haunts me as a grown up.

Fix You” is a song by the British rock band Coldplay. It was written by all four members of the band for their third studio album, X&Y (2005). It was released on 5 September 2005 as the second single from X&Y and reached number 4 on the UK Singles Chart. The song reached number 18 in the United States Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks. Promo singles were released for the UK and US.

The song was started by Chris Martin to comfort his then-wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who he met in late 2002 after her father died. The track is built around an organ accompanied by piano and guitar in the first half and an alternative rock style in the second half featuring electric guitar, bass and drums. The hopeful message of the song, and its two-part acoustic/anthemic arrangement, was critically acclaimed. The song has been performed at memorials such as by Coldplay at the One Love Manchester benefit concert in 2017.
