sounds of formby
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

discography.

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.

1 & 2 - When I’m Cleaning Windows - Leaning On A Lamp Post - 37 plays 3 - BELIEVE IT OR NOT - 19 plays 4 - MY UKULELE 18 - 19 plays 5 - OUR SERGEANT MAJOR 15 6 - HITTING THE HIGH SPOTS NOW 14 7 - MR WU'S A WINDOW CLEANER NOW 14 8 - YOU DON'T NEED A LICENSE FOR THAT 13 9 - SHARE AND SHARE ALIKE 13 10 - I DON'T LIKE 13 11 - ON THE WIGAN BOAT EXPRESS 13 12 - CHINESE LAUNDRY BLUES 13 13 - FANLIGHT FANNY 12 14 - GRANDAD'S FLANNELETTE NIGHTSHIRT 12 15 - GET CRACKING 12 16 - RIDING IN THE T.T.
