by
JOHNNY DANKWORTH:
My, we've reach the final letter,
Of this wonderful challenge "A to Z".
This is the eighth one I've completed.
With much dedication and tenacity.

There are not many songs or music.
Beginning with the letter "Z".
So have chosen another song from my childhood.
Namely "Zambezi".

It was very popular at the time.
Always having airtime on the radio.
I remember this song with nolstalgia.
At the time I loved it so.

Congrats to all who have completed
This wonderful challenge "A to Z".
Give yourselves a pat on the back.
To you from Yvonne,.......that's me.

  1. Congrats on completing the challenge Yvonne. I know I haven't commented on all your posts but I've read them all and listened to the song clips, you've included quite a few of my favourites from years gone by. It can't have been an easy task for some of the letters so well done! :)

  5. As soon as I saw the word Zambezi it started playing my mind - I can't think why, I'm far too young!! This has been a wonderful series. I've made lots of visits but not always commented - I'm a bit naughty like that!

    Z - It's farewell to Amble Bay!

  14. Never heard of this song--but it's a good one to use for Z.

    Thanks for joining us again for the A to Z. It wouldn't be the same without you. You did a great job and I think you managed to get through the new social media system well. You did a great job!
