The 1951 Rolling Review Show … Midweek Melody # 81
Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which twice weekly features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do.
Toast and Marmalade for Tea – Tin Tin
“Toast and Marmalade for Tea” is a song by the Australian rock group Tin Tin, and was written by Steve Groves and produced by Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees. It was a chart hit in 1971. Oh and that wobbly sounding guitar effect was on purpose.
Thank you for all those classics! It is another new one for me and I like it!
That’s great Erika. Thank you. We share some good music. 😃
Aren’t we just awesome 😅
I knew I heard the Gibb touch!
Everything they touched turned to gold it seems.Wonderful.
Never heard this before. They do sound like the Beatles.
So many groups were influenced by the Fab Four.🎸🎶🎷🎵🎺🎹
I am shamed! Me a Kiwi, and I never knew this group was Australian. It sounds so very English. Good marketing on their part.
Hi. Yes they certainly do have an English sound.
Very. Toast and marmalade for tea? We might eat that for breakfast in the colonies, but never for tea, which is an (early) evening meal and an alternative to dinner, which would take place later.
Well observed. I suppose they were out for a rhyme with ‘sea’. What rhymes with breakfast I wonder. Anyway, they were all high on drugs in those days and didn’t have a clue what they were eating or when they were eating it.
“They” were all high on drugs? Who are they?
Ah, I see what you’re saying. Not all then.
I was referring to some folk in certain bands who dabbled in drugs for recreational purposes. It was a bit of a blanket statement and rather flippant.😃
Thanks! For a horrid moment I thought you were slandering me. Even on drugs, we would have ripped into a deli roast chicken for tea, not toast and marmalade.
Well, I’m glad we have sorted things out.😃🍸
