Pub news.

You may remember, that a week last Saturday I told you about Di our ever-so-lovely soaker landlady and her friend, the equally lovely soaker Polly getting pissed as parrots and shrieking singing down the microphone. I said at the time of posting that I wanted the footage. Well, I HAVE IT!

Di in new glasses

I know you have all been clamouring to see the footage, and after much contemplation I have succumbed to Blogger pressure.

May I proudly, on behalf of The MERRIE MONK present:


CELINE DION




























Ok, so it's not what I wanted to post, but I was threatened with decapitation, genital removal and even worse. She was going to bar me!

Not quite the same as the video on my phone, but I think, after painfully listening to it several times, I'm sure this is what they were trying to sing singing!

She looks... very scholar-ish. Excellent photo, John.

Hi, Zoe, praise from you?

ChrisB said...

I think you made the right decision- LOL.

john.g. said...

Me too, Chris! She'll go bonkers before she sees the video though!

thepinkdog said...

good decision. You need to keep your body parts! : ) I'm sure they sounded just like Celine (wink, wink)

Keith said...

Nah! Celine doesn't sing it as well as Di.

Yes folks, I have seen the video and I think Di is great, I dont know why she doesn't want it put on the blog. If a recording company spotted it she could become famous overnight!

john.g. said...

Oh, Keith! Perleeeease!

Since I'm not a Celine Dion fan, it's probably just as well that it's left to my imagination what the lovely Di must have sounded like.

Its my experience that drunk people rarely experience the same hilarity as shared by observers of films of their antics....

PI said...

Great voice. I don't know why people are rotten to Celine.

Keith said...

Sorry Pat, but I think it's rubbish.

'Eyes on Me' WAS a lovely tune when played by a proper band as an instrumental.

Now Silly Celine has completely ruined it with her awful squealing voice and that Indian type music.

I think she deserves six months in Holloway for murdering a good song.

I admire anyone who can get up the nerve to sing / dance in front of others[even if they have to consume two bottles of whatever first]. Even if I were drugged, I wouldn't be able to do it.




Go on Di, let's see the video? Pretty please?

And anyway, amateur interpretations often sound and turn out to be better entertainment than the original. Take a listen to this one:

I agree Kevin. With a little bit of spit and polish and the right contacts they could do well.

No John, I don't mean Polly and Di, I mean Hannah and Shannon.

PI said...

Thanks for the link Keith. That's the first time I have enjoyed that dirge. Those girls are sweet and no spit and polish please.
