Listen to recordings of live performances, interviews and records
I have always wondered what would constitute a George Formby Top Twenty. The only list I have seen is my own - the
most popular songs that I have played in the Zoom Virtual Thrash group since I started hosting on 23 July 2020.
So, after twenty-one weeks of double thrash sessions, we have an interesting list of Formby tunes.
Please bear in mind that this list is for amusement only as the list of thrash songs does not include all the Formby
Also, remember that Leaning On A Lamp Post and The Window Cleaner are selected for every Zoom session by all the
hosts so obviously their position is not representative of the rest of the list
Treat this as I do, just a bit of fun and some nice tunes to remember good old George. I have included samples of some of
the tracks. The songs are selected from a spreadsheet that I update each week.
