Morris Minor and the Majors

Been reminded this morning of this classic late 80s hit.

Of course, most people don’t recognise the follow-up which was a great mickey-take of Stock, Aitken and Waterman. Apparently SAW liked it so much they played it at their Christmas Party!

Bonus points if you can identity all the acts being spoofed or referred to in both videos.

      You missed at least one cameo.

    • Peter Ould

      You worked out the Cameo yet? Same person in both videos.

      • Philip Cole

        I think I saw a very brief Michael Jackson cameo in both videos. Am I right?

        • Peter Ould

          Don't think "Prince of Pop" think Queen of guitar playing.

          • Philip Cole

            Thanks for the hint! I've now spotted Brian May!

            • Peter Ould

              No you haven't!

              • Philip Cole

                Huh? Then who's the blue-haired guitar player who get's shot in the first video? Ronnie Wood? Tony Iommi? Prince? I give up!

                • Peter Ould

                  Bassist John Deacon of Queen is in both videos, first as the guy who gets shot in the Stutter Rap and then is the one being a tea boy in the second video.

  • Philip Cole

    Oh yes, of course! Good game, good game!

Christ the King
Eternal Father, whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord and King: keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace, and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet; who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
Peter Handke

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
