Well it's BBC Radio Sheffield's 50th Birthday today and the reworked 'Common People' video is on their Facebook page, Twitter and YouTube. This is the YouTube link

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=139&v=diuFUjQyG-c

I was involved in the singing part, but only a few of the choir, including my wife, went down to the Leadmill for the video miming session. She's the small one with the curly hair  ::heart::

It was a strange process as they spent ages getting the choir locked together when we actually record the choir, brass band, bass and drummers then let a member of the 'Everly Pregnant Brothers
riff off-time to our backing, particularly at the start.

It was clever how they went out and got people miming to the lines, on the tram, working etc. nd the idea that a load of people off the street just went down to the Leadmill to listen.

Anyway I'm on the credits at the end so it's a performance of sorts I guess.

Enjoy

The Everly Pregnant Brothers were formed after a drunken dare by Pete Mckee and Richard Bailey. The success of the dare prompted the pair to draught in a bunch of disparate chaps who had three things in common, the love of beer, ukuleles and having a laugh.5 Sheffielders with ukuleles and a big bloke with a lethal line in lyrics.

Clever concept and nicely put together.

Thanks for sharing this @MrBouzouki , what a great project to have been involved in. It just shows how certain songs have a resonance with people and live on collectively in their hearts - even though they don't normally go around singing them together on trains, in sweet shops and in Town Halls!  ;D

It would have been good to have had a cameo appearance from Jarvis for a few seconds, though. Could have been funny!

I just looked it up and the song is now actually 22 years old, so certainly a lot of the singers were probably in their youthful music listening prime when it first came out. So it all must have been particularly nostalgic and enjoyable for them. Cheers for that  ::thumb::
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!
