Sometimes after a busy week, a little easy listening music is just what the doctor ordered.
Much derided as uncool, exponents of the genre invariably have millions of album sales to their names.
The greats of easy listening were celebrated last night on BBC4 in a 90-minute documentary ‘The Joy Of Easy Listening.’
I only caught the last few minutes, but went to bed whistling this tune which ran over the end credits.
Bert Kaempfert was the man responsible for ‘Swinging Safari’.
And thanks to YouTube, you get 2-for-1 with another hummable Kaempfert winner ‘Afrikaan Beat.’
And I couldn’t pass up this chance to share a couple of my favourite Herb Alpert tunes.
