Back in my youf, we had proper music and literature, like the song Yellow River and the accompanying tome of the same name by I. P. Daley.
Apparently the song is about the American Civil War. Well, some forty plus years later, I have learnt that. I suppose I heard the Australian version by a group called Jigsaw but I find the original English recording by Christie much better. Normally I feel a frisson of arousal when I look at old pop groups on You Tube, but I am not for neither Jigsaw or Christie. They are all quite plain, only saved slightly by their voluminous hair.
The song may well have been called Yellow River, but it features the group Christie upon a barge in the Thames River. I would expect the very grey clip was never used by the London Tourist Bureau. While I know the bridges, can anyone identify any of the buildings along the Thames, apart from the obvious Westminster?
Also, for the musically inclined, is there a key change in the song, or is it just a tempo change?
