Years ago, I heard a person playing Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire” as a solo accordion piece. I was laughing so hard my co workers thought I had lost it. If anyone knows or has heard this classic rendition I would appreciate a link if possible. Thanks

Go to youtube.com and search for "hendrix fire on accordion". A bunch of stuff comes up. Maybe you'll find the exact video you're looking for.

The one I recall was more instrumental. This should be good enough to get people cranked up.

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we have the military pay to protecting the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes up very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

I always liked Yes but this music video has got to go down in history as one of the lamest and most awkward ever made. These guys look like they're dancing the thorazine shuffle. Think Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

In keeping with the finest traditions of the Royal Navy as exemplified by the HMS Pinafore, I present my annual "All I Want for Christmas is You" as performed by the crew of the HMS Ocean. Backstory: HMS Ocean was originally scheduled to do a seven week deployment would up spending 214 days at sea.

English music-hall is completely different from American vaudeville. I heard this song on a 78, round my friend Richard's house, when I was eight years old. (Had my parents known, they would have killed that friendship stone-dead). I was utterly amazed. Adequate description impossible. I think it's a 1940s recording.

Albert Whelan was actually Australian (as if you couldn't tell).
