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.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 3, 2021. Who/ Whom.

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “start with who/whom” Begin your post with either “who” or “whom” and go from there. Have fun!

Who do I think of when I think back to my pre-teen days when all my brothers and sisters where all alive and at home. Who was who back then, Teresa Mary, Mary Anne, Frances Jane, Anthony Conrad, John Patrick and me , there had been three more but I never knew them and of course there was Mum and Dad.

Music played a huge part in my young life, in all our lives but I was the youngest and the one who soaked up the magic.

Mum loved the big musicals of the time, Carousel , Paint your Wagons, South Pacific. Now Dad he loved the classics, Maria Calis was exactly who my Dad really liked .. I learned to a appreciate Mum and Dad’s music at a young age.

Teresa loved Pat Boone, Frances loved Elvis and Cliff, Mary…well I can’t remember who Mary really liked back then but in later years she was into big shows and jazz. My brother Tony was heavily in to Johnny Mathis for whom I have a great liking still. Then there was John Patrick who was absolutely besotted with Buddy Holly and Adam Faith both of whom I also like.

So how can I finish this post? Well I am going to say that there is one of the afore mentioned artists of whom I am very much enamoured and that is Adam Faith! My favourite song of his is …wait for it…WHO AM I and here it is .💜

So  Bee  has  asked us  for  loved  songs  from our  childhood. Well  I was  very  much  younger than  my  brothers  and  sisters I can remember  their  music  being played  all over  the  house  on  the  old  grey  and  red Dansette  record  player.

There was Pat Boon, Elvis, Johnny  Mathis,  Buddy Holly, Matt Munro and  a  blond guy  from  London , in fact Acton Town  which  was  about  four  miles  up  the  road  from  where  we lived . That  was  Adam Faith and I  fell in  love  with his  voice  and  then  as I  grew older  with him!

It was  by  next  brother  who  loved  Adam Faith  and  Buddy  Holly and  both of  them  s  much  but  it  is  Adam Faith  who  made  the  biggest  impression  on  me  as a  child  !

My  most  favourite  song  was  Who  am I ! My  favourite  Line ?  easy:  ” Never again to sit and cry, Who Am I, Who Am I. I’ll tell my heart this time it’s really true.. I’ll tell no  I’m Mr  mighty  high  and  your  the  reason  why,  aye  aye  aye  the  ask  me  who  am I?

Adam Faith Who Am I? Lyrics

Who Am I , Who Am I

A thousand times they ask why, Who Am I, Who am I.
That I should dare to fall in love with you.
I never meant to aim so high, Who Am I Who Am I.
Well now I ask you what am I to do.

Am I supposed to sit and cry, Who Am I, Who Am I,
To tell my heart this is’nt really true.
I’ll tell no lies, I’m mister mighty high.
And you’re the reason why they ask me, Who Am I

No longer no one,
Because I’m your one,
That makes me someone,
And this I know who am I without you.

Never again to sit and cry, Who Am I, Who Am I.
I’ll tell my heart this time it’s really true.

I’ll tell no lies, I’m mister mighty high.
And you’re the reason why they ask me, Who Am I.
Who Am I Who Am I.

Adam Faith Lyrics
