It Seems I Have A Soft Spot For The Welsh

tj.jpgJim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: WRITTEN OR SUNG BY TOM/DICK/HARRY.

There is only one man that came into my head when I saw this theme. The pride of Wales (I acknowledge that my Welsh family might take issue over that statement), the enigmatic, energetic, epic TOM JONES!!!

I loved the songs I heard him sing as a little girl. There is one particular song he is famous for which is my number one choice for karaoke. I have performed it so many times I have lost count. Love it! So, I have picked “It’s Not Unusual” as my top Tom track.

I can’t explain that wonderful karaoke crooner quality his most famous songs have, but as a celebrated karaoke queen – I am only grateful for the contribution he has made to karaoke!!!

But I am going to confess right now…I have more up my sleeve. Today Caramel is hosting a TOM-ATHON! The Welsh hottie from the valleys who sang with so much heart and wiggled his hips at the same time. Besides this favourite of mine, I have two other tracks up my sleeve. Prepare yourself!

It’s not unusual to be loved by anyone
It’s not unusual to have fun with anyone
But when I see you hanging about with anyone
It’s not unusual to see me cry,
I wanna die

It’s not unusual to go out at any time
But when I see you out and about it’s such a crime
If you should ever wanna be loved by anyone,
It’s not unusual it happens every day
No matter what you say
You’ll find it happens all the time
Love will never do what you want it to
Why can’t this crazy love be mine?

It’s not unusual to be mad with anyone
It’s not unusual to be sad with anyone
But if I ever find
That you’ve changed at anytime
It’s not unusual to find that I’m in love with you

  1. He’s got the voice, he’s got the looks, he’s got the moves. He’s a superstar in my eyes. I was blessed to see him live once in a small (1800 seats) theater. We were in the balcony and it was a packed house. I never saw so many pairs of ladies underwear thrown on stage before!

    1. I think this is probably the song he is mainly associated with.
      Also the Green Green Green Grass of Home closely associated with his being Welsh.
