Countdown No 5: “Just two up two down” Herman’s Hermits – No Milk Today

And I’ll try not to sing out of key.
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends.

Day 5 – A song that reminds you of Someone – New Morning by Bob Dylan

For me it’s my auntie when I hear Bob Dylan…

Living with…Sir Tom Jones…for a week

Why we throw knickers, cheese, bats and flowers at stars?
Sir Tom has had possibly more reincarnations in his career than anyone…
