Thanks a lot jake!,
This review is from: Lah-Di-Dah (Audio CD)
Thank you Jake Thackray.
I was on the second leg of a long Sydney to London flight, about an hour away from landing. Bored with all the movies I had already seen, I spent some time flicking through the in-flight radio stations. I came across this slightly odd sounding northern chap singing a song called "Jolly Captain". Thank goodness it was a noisy flight, otherwise I think I may have got a few odd looks had anyone notice me burst into almost hysterical laughter at one particular line!
First thing upon my return, I bought this collection of Jake Thackray and I am very glad I did. These songs *always* cheer me up. If you have never heard of Jake Thackray you should give him a try. At first I simply found joy in the clever and very funny (and very English) wit in his lyrics. After I while, I realised just how good some of the actual music is too; Lah-Di-Dah is very sweet, and Sophie is a beautiful, if rather odd, love song.
