There's A Kind of Hush (All Over the World) with Peter Noone and Herman's Hermits

WhatsApp

ImageWe're awash in music this weekend as our Mark Steyn Club second-birthday celebrations continue. Today we're honored to present another live-performance edition of Steyn's Song of the Week, and with the irrepressible Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits.

A couple of weeks back I noted the death of a marvelous pop composer, Les Reed, and chose to memorialize him with an early hit for Tom Jones, "It's Not Unusual". But I mentioned en passant:

Les and Geoff [Stephens] went on to write many other songs, including their masterpiece, 'There's a Kind of Hush (All Over the World Tonight)', which Herman's Hermits made a monster hit all over the world now and forever. I love the melody Reed came up with, and maybe we'll do that for a Song of the Week in the weeks ahead.

So I sat down with Peter Noone to talk about the song and to hear him perform it acoustically and then live on stage with a full complement of Herman's Hermits. To enjoy, simply click below:

ImageThe Mark Steyn Club was born twenty-four months ago in May 2017, which means we are now two - and in the midst of anniversary observances. One of the most popular features these last couple of years has been our series of monthly audio adventures, Tales for Our Time. And one of the most popular features of Tales for Our Time has been the music Mark chooses to accompany his serialization of each story.

So here, after many requests, is a sampler of the accompanying melodies from some of our tales: Mark plays ninety minutes of great works by composers from all over the map...

Toe to Toe with Doris Day

WhatsApp

Doris Day died this past week, at the age of ninety-seven and retaining her luster to the end. On Monday I recalled parts of a long-ago conversation with her. We talked that day, aside from the dogs, more about her music than her pictures - because I don't think anyone would dispute that she was a much better singer than actress. That's not to disparage her thespian side: In the Thirties and Forties many big-band canaries got shoved before the cameras, but very few parlayed the warbling into a two-decade career as a bona fide A-list movie star. Nevertheless, I would say she put more emotional nuance into a lyric couplet than a line of dialogue, so that, certainly in the first...
