Another Last Night

Same procedure as every year.
As I just watched this year's 'Last night of the Proms', I thought you might also like a musical bed-time sweets.

VoilĂ , enjoy.

  1. To think I can remember all the words and can still sing along after all these years. Just goes to show how the Empire was still alive and well when I was a child, reaching to far-off Australia and indoctrinating the young.

  2. We don't get this in Australia any more. Very nostalgia making, not so much for the message itself, but what I associate with it from the 1970s. Glorious stuff nostalgia.

  3. jmb,
    as you might know I do agree with Wilhelm Busch: Music as its noise-related, is often not appreciated. :)
    The Last Night of the Proms I'd not miss, though, enjoying the music - well, most of it - and the atmosphere, especially when it comes to the final ... rituals.
    This does not mean, though, that I got indoctrinated. :)

    Colin,
    you wrote it: Glorious stuff nostalgia!
    I am not entirely amused when thinking of England's/The United Kingdom's history. This kind of tradition is most enjoyable, though.

    Cherrypie,

  5. No of course not, lol. I actually genuinely liked it, although I'd have loved to hear the song 'Jerusalem'.

    next year, perhaps. :) There are some videos including 'Jerusalem'.
