Hello website-chums. Times are hard at the moment, what with Covid-19 and being stuck indoors day in and day out. We could all do with some cheering up.

And what’s the best way to cheer up? Rock and Roll of course!

Below I’ve shared a video of one of the best Rock and Roll songs ever released. It’s called “Hold my hand very tightly (very tightly)” and it’s by “Whistlin'” Rick Wilson.  You may never have heard of him – but he was massive in the eighties.

Sadly, it was the only number one record Rick Wilson was to have, before vanishing from the music scene.

So, make a cup of tea, have a seat, and listen to some good old fashioned Rock and Roll. I’ve added the lyrics below so you can even sing a long if you like.

LYRICS
