Climbing Songs Part 2 – Countdown from 20-16
20. Radiohead – Climbing Up The Walls – Becky B
Dark, brooding, troubled, I like it!
19. Tasmin Archer – The Higher You Climb – Ellie T
Hmm, let’s see, “The higher you climb, the further you fall…”
Thank you Ellie! Great tune though.
18. Sam and Dave – Hold on I’m Coming – Fiona H
This song was written by Isaac Hayes and David Porter and has been covered by LOADS of people including Tom Jones, BB King and Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, The Tempations, Boney M and Hanson.
However, here is the Sam and Dave version of this song and I’d like to dedicate it to our wall instructor, for obvious reasons.
17. Secret Garden and Brian Kennedy – You Raise me Up – Cath (with help from Fiona)
I’ll try to anticipate your questions:
Q: Why isn’t this in the cheese section?
A: I’d already finished it, there isn’t space.
Q: Why didn’t you use the Josh Groban version?
A: He looks like David Schwimmer with hair and sings like Kermit the Frog.
Q: Why this version?
A: It’s the original and the best… OK, do a Google image search on “Brian Kennedy singer”. Phwoarr.
16. M-People – Moving on Up – Chris M and Scott S
I’d just like to apologise at this point if I’ve confused anyone by convincing them that Heather Small is Alexandra Burke’s mum. Alexandra Burke’s mum is, of course, Melissa Bell from Soul II Soul. Oops.
