Song of the day: Sheppard- Geronimo

geronimo-cover-sheppard

A new Australian band, which clearly stated they were there with their first single. Geronimo was number 1 in Australia, and almost reached the US charts. The song was inspired by a very famous Apache leader, namely Geronimo, who shouted out his name before he did something courageous. I think it’s a great song and we probably will hear more of the band in the future! Enjoy

Song of the day: The Shadows- Apache

There was an instrumental song, written by Jerry Lordan, which has been on number one in the UK for five weeks. The original was recorded by the Shadows in 1960, which also was their first big hit in the world. Hank Marvin had gotten an Italian echo-chamber from Joe Brown, which he used on the single. Bruce Welsh borrowed a guitar from Cliff Richard, who would be playing the drum in the beginning and the end. The song would be one of the first steps to the rock sound of the Beatles. Enjoy
