    Oh yes, i have to turn this down when it comes on - something about it winds me up no end. I dont know if anyone knows who Howard Goodall is? He does lots of BBC tv music, amongst other things. He's responsible for this.

    He once presented a show about understanding music. Watching him try and disect soul music in his soulless way was jaw-dropping telly.

    I never realised this was meant to have anything to do with reggae till i read about it once.
    (Dyer Maker is meant to sound like Jamaica or something ... looking it up - from wiki "The name of the song is derived from an old joke: "My wife's gone to the West Indies." "Jamaica?" (which has a similar pronunciation as "D'you make her?") "No, she went of her own accord".)

    Not Elton John. Its the Bob and Marcia version which was a hit in the late 60s - def not cod reggae.

    Well, Zep 'reappropriated' things from a number of musical styles, so I'm not surprised that cod reggae ended up joining the list.

    the wiki about it is quite interesting, especially in terms of how it was received then and now

    I have heard the Elton John version, recently played by Danny Baker...thought that was it. Of course the Bob and Marcia version wouldn't be on this thread.
