Title: Girl group cover
Post by S J Birkill on Today at 01:05
Now for something different: Elle and two of her four Pocket Belles perform an acapella arrangement of Biro, in vintage swing style:

Now we just need to persuade them to make the album!

Here's a peek at this version's surprise debut, last year at Gatwick Airport (names withheld to protect the happy couple!)

They're wonderful aren't they. I liked them even before I turned the speakers on, and even more so afterwards. (Did that come out sounding sleazy? It wasn't meant to.)

Is there a connection that led to them doing the song?

Hi Murray.   Yes, there is a connection.  Richard, the proposer, knew the song before he met my goddaughter Bryony from a friend who is a bit of a J/A fan, so it was an early connection point for them.  The 3 Belles singing the song was part of a bit of street theatre that Richard organised at Gatwick to make an event of his proposal.   Fortunately for him, and everyone else involved, Bryony said yes.   I'm going to be singing the song at the wedding ceremony next month during the signing of the register, which seemed the most appropriate time.
