FlashBack Friday: CLASSIC Cartoon theme tunes

For those unfamiliar with FlashBack Friday's (click for previous episodes), it's a post I do as many Friday's as I can. It's the post that I always enjoy doing because whatever I do brings a smile to my face. Can only hope it does the same for you :) It's a 90s baby free zone more time I'm afraid. Apart from my teenhood stuff, you get jook (Jamaican phrase for "unlucky pal"). And today is probably one of those posts. But you can read if you like (obviously)

I would have liked to continue my TeenHood Crush FlashBack Friday, but Flintstones is 50 years old today! #RandomFact This was my favourite cartoon as a youngster



Over the past couple of days old cartoon theme tunes come into my head. So in line with that, I'm going to share the classic retro cartoon theme tunes. Some of the theme tunes were so good I remember them, but couldn't tell you whether I enjoyed watching the show. This goes out to my crew who woke up before Live & Kicking. In the time prior to SM:TV Live. Emma Forbes and Andi Peters time. 081-811-8181 time, (not 0181). Win a NES/SNES with the gun and Duck Shooter game time

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is up there in my favourite cartoons of all time. Michaelangelo being my favourite. Had the game on the GameBoy and all sorts. Can't embed the opening titles so click here

Another favourite of mine, Inspector Gadget



I don't care, I'd actually put these tunes on my iPod for a frustrating day. I could post bait ones like Pink Panther, but that's like EXTRA bait and isn't that fun or cheesy. It's actually quite cool. I prefer these ones as they are much more retro:

Chipmunks



Ducktales



Chip 'N' Dale: Rescue Rangers



Pinky and the Brain



Animaniacs



Captain Planet ending was much better than the opening



Talespin

p.s. Cos I'm such a badman, I just clocked that someone used the Flinstones melody in dancehall

So, Jamaican Music Is Currently Dominating UK Pop Chart

Based on official UK top 100 singles chart week commencing 15th April 1. Drake featuring Wizkid & Kyla Don't listen to the afrobeats or UK funky claims, Drake made a dancehall song with elements of the aforementioned. But I addressed that in the ' Mis-Appreciation of Jamaican Culture ' post. 2. Sia feat. Sean Paul - Cheap Thrills Sidenote: Song declined by Rihanna 5. Zara Larrson - Lush Life Sidenote: Allegedly a song declined by Rihanna. Not sure how true that is. 10. Rihanna feating Drake - Work (peak chart position 2) 13. Major Lazer feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG- Light It Up (peak chart position 7) Sidenote: Nyla is part of Brick & Lace fame. They dropped one of the best written dancehall pop crossover songs ever in Love is Wicked . I believe she's the singer although she singjay's on this. 26. Justin Bieber - Sorry (peak chart position 1) 39. AlunaGeorge feat. Popcaan - I'm In Control 43. Kygo - Stay (peak chart

About Chronixx Somerset House show: this is NOT a review

So basically, I went to Chronixx's show at the prestigious Somerset House on Sunday. Had the time of my life again. Decided I'm not gonna write a review on Monday because what else is there to say? I've seen him five times (six if you include the time babylon locked off proceedings cos of curfew in Jamaica. Seven if you include his appearance at Rebel Salute) and been impressed every time. How do I keep retelling the same story? "You have to see this guy. It is one of the best shows you will experience in these times," will forever be the moral. If you wanna read a review of this show  go here . You can take in my reviews of Chronixx in 2014 and 2013 . If you wanna do that and wanna hear what I've got to say, stay here.

Remember When Riddims Were King

Before you read, thank you for your interest and hope you enjoy. I actually fleshed it out into a book. You can get your copy from www.nolongstories.com   Now for what you came here for... When Riddims Were King 23rd May 2020 will be remembered in history for one of the most epic events in one of our universe's darkest times. We will never forget the night dancehall kings and former extremely heated rivals, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, battled on the Verzuz platform built by hall-of-fame producers, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. An unfiltered, 360-degree view on Jamaican dancehall events was showcased; DJ’s and dancing (Beenie Man’s daughter Desha Ravers) to deejay’s clashing on the same riddims. The latter elements provided the jewels in the night’s highlight reel, and undoubtedly the best thing to happen on the Verzuz series. Word spread like guava jelly within the dancehall community and Jamaican diaspora upon announcement. Not only was it a clash between the longest and fier
