Song of the day: The Small Faces- Lazy Sunday

Small Faces Lazy Sunday

Some singles become hits while the band doesn’t want the song to be released. This single is part of a concept album, Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake, and was released in 1968, preceding the album. The Small Faces didn’t want this, but the song became a number 2 hit in the UK. The backing melody has parts of Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones, played on kazoo. The largest part is sung in a cockney accent, due to an argument with the Hollies, who said Marriott (the singer) had never sung in his own accent. Enjoy

With adding the Beatles to the Hall Of Fame, I should not forget this band! Some say they are better than the Beatles, others say they aren’t. And that’s allowed. Fact is, that in the sixties, you were either fan of the Beatles or the Rolling Stones. I am both, but the conflict has died down a bit. And that’s good, because I really can’t choose. The Beatles are nice boys, making nice songs, but the Rolling Stones are a bit more rough, but also make great music! Thinking about songs as Satisfaction and my personal favourite Paint It Black, I really can’t make up my mind which band is better. They both added something to music, and the Rolling Stones are still great. Rock on, and well deserved: a place in the Hall Of Fame!
