Flashback Friday: End Credits Tunes

Yeaaahhh it's baaaa-aaaack! FlashBack Friday's inna ya area. For previous episodes click here.

Today I'm appreciating some of my favourite show theme tunes. Shows that no longer exist. Hence end credits

Grange Hill

The tune that inspired this topic. Randomly popped in my head today. Many older people probably rated the older theme tune, but man-a-youngster and this is a skankers



The Bill

I used to copy the walk in my living room. I didn't work out they were just walking 'til long time after. Used to kick my heels way back.



Keenan and Kel

This is arguably the greatest opening credits of my generation. Had the streets on smash. Beat is mucky



Cousin Skeeter

This r&b banger went all the way in! Skeeter got a dubplate of 702 'Steelo'. Program was rubbish but it had Meagan Goode and a banging tune



In The House

I didn't like anything apart from Mercedes and the tune. Besides it came on at 3.30 pm. Thugs like me never got in that early from school



Desmonds

Sadly, I can't get the theme song due to copyright and blocked in my country (see here). However, who remembers the spin-off Pork Pie? What you mean no? You know why innit? 'Cos it was rubbish!



If you want to watch re-runs you can on YouTube click this episode then look for other ones.

Oh look, I found a poor quality end credits, but no lyrics.



Doug

Skeng man with only a few shreds of hair but skeng all the same.



RIP all you programs. Your tune are sorely missed. Even if you aren't

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
