I have always been a woman who arranges things,
For the pleasure and the profit I derive;
I have always been a woman who arranges things- like luncheon parties, daffodils and lives

I put my hand in here, I put my hand in there

The song is from Hello Dolly, Best version: Carol Channing, though am told by a globe trotting acquaintance that Bette Midler is wowing them on Broadway now. [Axe murder]

Bewildered old lady from OZ.
[1] Yes, Ready Steady Go was the song. Didn't know who it was by.
[2] Go tell it on the Mountain is a Gospel Song {I think]. Sung by lots of people , usually en masse[ as opposed to in mass!]
[3] Rocky Mountain High is a great song. Didn't know any one but John Denver sang it.
[4] Now I don't know what we are up to: If it is Rocky Mountain High, then
High Hopes

after HOME FOR A REST which snuck in whilst I was typing:

then, beloved of Nellie Melba, so often repeated :

HOME, SWEET HOME
which leads me through an obscure mental process to Peter Allen and repeated ad nauseam through the Qantas ad:
I STILL CALL AUSTRALIA HOME
Never fails to bring a tear to the eye. [Tear]

I only know that song from the musical 'The Boy From Oz' - and Hugh Jackman played the lead on Broadway.

So I could post all sorts of songs from the lovely Mr 'Huge' Jackman (or Jack Human as a friend calls him). Do I go for Les Mis? Or The Greatest Showman? No, I'll go back to when I saw him on stage in London, prior to when Hollywood came calling. And my goodness, the testosterone reached up to the back row.

Oh What A Beautiful Mornin'

Hugh Jackman[lovely man] was the replacement for the definitive Peter Allen as played by Todd McKinney, in the run of The Boy from OZ when premiered in Australia.. The producers wanted a NAME for Broadway and so Hugh got the job.

"GOING HOME, GOINGHOME, I AM GOING HOME"
to the tune from Dvorak's the New World Symphony;

best version I have heard is an Australian tenor called David Hobson with a backing choir from South Africa and drum accompaniment.

Absolute Magic. Real Tearjerker.

Here's a song about the struggle of a seasonal agricultural worker to earn enough to be going home.

Gillian Welch: One More Dollar

There's a fair chance I've posted this before - one of my very favorite songs.

When you are weary, leave your troubles Behind and Go Down Town .

Petula Clark mid 60's

In answer to the enquiry about the David Hobson track: thee CD was called "In my father's house", re released in 2013, and I believe it's available on I tunes. Just Google David Hobson tenor. It5's a great CD co -written with David Herschfelder who wrote the music for "Shine". about David Helfgott. Seem to be a collection of Davids, doesn't there? Maybe the next singing group?
