I am cross because what I really want to share with you does not seem to be on the internet. There was a new show on tv, one that had me leave my computer chair and give the television my full intention. I have always liked stories and learning about the Raj and this show, Indians Summers is a fairly typical tv show, giving a picture of Indian hill station Simla where the government, officials and VIPs moved up to the cooler hills during the hottest summer months. Simla has always looked so beautiful to me.
The brilliant Julie Walters is so well cast in the show as socialite Cynthia Coffin. Here is a clip I did find. You may have to listen to it a couple of times, 0:29.
Naturally they begged her to sing and she belted out a song I don't ever remember hearing. Now Walters does not seem to be on You Tube singing and really, no one compares to how good she was, that is at singing in a music hall manner. This version is rather sweeter and I am sure Emma Odell is a very good singer. It is curious that I don't ever remember hearing the song. I understand it was used the tv show The Monocled Mutineer and because of its ice cream cart reference, it has been used by ice cream vans, which makes a change from Greensleeves. Anyway, here you go with Oh, Oh, Antonio. 3:24
