That wonderful sound…

Men could not stand him but women would go all weak in the knees at the sight of him and his singing. HRH Prince Philip said that he sounded as if he was gargling with pebbles. Still, Tom Jones has survived all these years…

It was not his first hit but he became a household name in these parts with the karaoke favourite, “The green green grass of home”. I used to like it until I had to undergo hours of aural torture at karaoke lounges where many would love to sing the song…and murder it! LOL!!! Then came other hits of his like “Delilah”, “I’ll never fall in love again”, “Love me tonight”, “Funny familiar forgotten feelings”, “I’m coming home” and “She’s a lady”. I remember those Decca vinyl records that my father used to buy and I would play them on our radiogram.

But those are not my favourite Tom Jones’ songs though. I love “That wonderful sound” which Shagul Hamid sang on Bakat TV ’70, prior to the Bintang RTM days and also “One day soon“.

For a while, he disappeared from the music scene and in the late 80s, he came back – older and as some women might claim, sexier than ever and released an album, if I’m not mistaken, on the 30th anniversary of his involvement in the music industry. From this particular album, I love his cover of Prince’s “Kiss” and this one… You can click this link to find out which song I am talking about but at your own risk. You especially, Stella! I will not be responsible for anything that happens after this! ROTFLMAO!!!

Have a nice week, everybody!

  1. The name of the songs sound familiar but I don’t think I’m familiar with the singer’s story. You might say that I’m too young to even know the song but we sang those in croaking, I mean, karaokeing session too! πŸ˜€

    Have you clicked the last link? Bet you’ll enjoy the show. Watch till the end…and in the meantime, enjoy the song.

  2. His new album good?

    I only like the two songs… Got a duet with the Cardigans, and I think he’s cashing in on his hamsupness. One song used in the soundtrack of “The Full Monty” even! LOL!!!

  3. Ooohhh…the way he shook those tight ass! Yummy! *drool* LOL! πŸ˜›

  4. Yucks! The Russian skater looks more like a ‘dyke’than a sex bomb to me!That is what I called steroids overdrive! Give me Brad Pitt or Clooney anytime!LOL!Not really into Tom Jones either,oldies singers I like are David Gates,John Denver,Engelbert,to name a few…..

    Hahahahaha!!!! I thought the russian skater was really hilarious!!!…..David Gates/Bread ok, not really into John Denver, Englebert has a few recent albums but none that I really like. I think he performed in Genting not too long ago.

  5. Sex bomb? Hahahahahhahahahhaha!!! If he can be a sex bomb then our dear PM can be one too! I was referring to his ass, not face. Hmm…can’t they make him wear Brad Pitt’s mask when he skates?
