Peggy Quotes

You might say Peggy is an artist who needs no introduction. Yet, here she revisits many traditional songs from her vast repertoire with finer voice and deeper appreciation than any of her previous recordings. She can make a traditional song sound timeless, yet as current as if written yesterday. She also includes one moving, bittersweet original song about growing old. This is the recording you want to play for a younger singer and say: "This is the way traditional music remains alive." - Rich Warren, WFMT

Peggy Quotes 2

One minute I was crying with laughter as Peggy read 1950s advice for wives.Then, like a curving ball from nowhere, a wave of emotion hit me and I was fighting to hide sobs, blinded by mascara, when Peggy sang The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.
- Sue Brough

 

Call Me Coloured?

CALL ME COLOURED?

When I was born,  was black.
When I grew up, I was black.
When I’m sick, I’m black.
When I go in the sun, I’m black.
When I’m cold, I’m black.
When I die, I’ll be black.
But YOU:
When you’re born, you’re pink,
When you grow up, you’re white,
When you’re sick, you’re green.
When you go in the sun, you turn red.
When you’re cold, you turn blue.
When you die, you turn purple
AND YOU HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL ME COLOURED!


by Shaolin Tiger or Malcolm X
