Stupid Cupid
Stupid Cupid

4.0 out of 5 stars Old time classic, 26 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stupid Cupid (MP3 Download)
An all time - old time classic from the 1950's that has real 'zing'. The schoolgirl 'crush' lyrics are outshone by the rhythm, which is tops.


Silverline 675223 Loose Leaf Buffing Wheel 100 x 15mm
Silverline 675223 Loose Leaf Buffing Wheel 100 x 15mm

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in parts, 18 Nov. 2012

This wheel was chosen for buffing up some well tarnished brass, so it had to be durable, and the reviews indicated that it might meet that task. The items first required fine surface grinding, then this buffer was introduced for the polishing. Brasso was applied liberally to the wheel, and the pieces manually held against the spinning wheel in the drill chuck, the drill being fixed to the bench. Only a light pressure was possible as the pads spun up on their spindle if too much pressure was applied. Secondly, pressure on the pads compressed them hence care was required. Overall verdict - not ideal but the best I could find. Clearly, any repeat job would require either several pads, or a more industrial product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Explosive teenage angst!, 18 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another explosive teenage angst rock 'n roll number which leaves you stunned, bemused and then uplifted. Poor boy, he hadn't long to live before his fatal road smash in the UK, like so many of that era and genre. It also represents the post war era of plenty which became known as the American dream. A sure hit, once you survive the first few bars and listen carefully to the lyrics belted out at you.

It comes as a huge surprise after all these years, to discover that Wanda Jackson is a white girl, born in Oklahoma and raised in California. Wow, what a performance - what rhythm - what lyrics. Play this track towards the end of your party. Does it rock -yes, Richter scale 5!

One of the most uplifting Christian hymns, with a wonderful rhythm. The lyrics are worth paying careful attention to. Irresistible.

Jimmy Durante may not be everybody's taste today, but this song is one of the vaudeville era all time classics. As with so many U.S. songs, the lyrics and timing are perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic, 4 Nov. 2012

Yet another of Stan Freeberg's intensely funny and clever parodies of the U.S. TV police 'Dragnet' series. If this nonsense genre hits your funny bone, prepare to chuckle. Brilliant.

This 'Dragnet' U.S. police TV series parody of the story is funny and at the same time extremely clever. If you appreciate 'nonsense' genre, this is an all time classic. Stan Freeberg hit the funny bone square on with this version.

Dinah Shore remains one of the all time top popular singers. This steamy, tingling single is an all time classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising success, 15 Sept. 2012

I am writing this review on behalf of my wife who bought this terrifying piece of brightly coloured torture instrument! I have to say however, that she has mastered it, now consistently beats the 200 consecutive spins, and feels it is doing her a lot of good. She developed brown bruises on her skin at first, but these have now gone and frankly I stand amazed at the effect this apparatus has had on our garden life. It stands in the conservatory awaiting the next session. Amazing - maybe it will prove a worthwhile 'buy'.
