I liked the natives and they certainly looked friendly. :lol: :lol:

If it moves and it's not supposed to - use the Duct Tape.

A much recorded tune:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_(instrumental)

Let's give credit to the right artists:

The original artists, The Shadows:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzgbcyfJgfQ

In 1961, Danish jazz guitarist Jørgen Ingmann's cover of "Apache" went to #2 in the US and #2 in Canada:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyXLJsO_ulw

Other stuff from Wikipedia:

In 1977, The Tommy Seebach Band recorded a disco-styled version and filmed an accompanying music video of "Apache." Set on a rocky hillside, it featured scantily clad dancers around a grinning Tommy Seebach while he plays keyboards. This version was successful in Europe.

And this oddity:

Black Sabbath with Tony Martin on vocals played a live cover of the song at their 1989 concert in Moscow.

It's all over the map.

My personal take as a musician: Ingmann's version, nice and solid and well recorded with a very tasteful use of an echo chamber effect.

Tommy SeeBach: Politically and musically incorrect.

Rarely seen anything that corny in my life if it's meant to be serious ......... If I was guessing I would think it was part of a comedy sketch show ..... 6 seconds was more than enough

When we first watched it both Sue and I couldn't stop laughing such were some of the cheesy videos around at that era. I'm also a "very amateur" guitarist and as you can tell from the user name, a big fan of the Shads and the Fender Strat indeed 50's and 60's instrumental music in general. There were some great bands around then for instance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m429iA5KS1E (Superb use of the DeArmond 610 volume and tone pedal, I have the Fender version but it's not as good) truly a great time for music. Jan thanks for the video link, she's very good nice to see the youngsters playing real instruments.

Cheers
Rich

P.S. I do quite like the Incredible Bongo Band version, there was also a chilled out version I heard a long time ago, for the life of me I can't remember who did it, I heard it on one of the Shadows fan sites. :think:

What is truly amazing is that which was parody 50 plus years ago would not be tolerated today, in the spirit of "Correctness". I love the music even if the video itself was a tad on the offensive side.

Taking parody - who remembers the Barron Knights? Great mimics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8sv3-b ... 7e30&t=142

Now that brought back a few memories, good times. :dance: :dance: :dance: I very often spend a couple of hours on You Tube listening to some of the older music and always come across some little gems. Like this band https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3qhBHGnmw0 one for all the Bond fans, well worth the time listening to their other videos, very very good indeed.
