Looks like there could be a new King Kong movie appearing around 2017. Set in the 1970s Skull Island will star Tom Hiddlestone ( as an ex SAS soldier ), Samuel.L.Jackson and John Goodman will also appear, the movie has a connection to the 2014 Godzilla movie and we could be seeing a Godzilla vs King Kong match up around 2020!

Here are some of my faves
The Nitty Gritty
Shirley Ellis better known for the Clapping Song but i think this lesser known song is far better
Carol Cleveland - Love Will Set You Free
Heres one that's popular with Northern Soul lovers
Raphael Saadiq - Love That Girl
A rarely heard track that has such a catchy riff.
Here's a vid with a Northern lass getting down to it at one of the soul weekenders , Great.
Lulu - To Sir With Love
Theme tune the film which was something of a British ' Blackboard Jungle ' and starred Lulu and Sydney Poitier. A beautiful song sang by a superb vocalist.
Edwin Starr - SOS
One from the late great Motown star
Sorry couldn't resist another on from the mighty Edwin - 25 miles.......
Papa Was A Rolling Stone - Was Not Was
An awesome cover of the Temptations classic.
The Manhattans - Hurt
One for the erection section at the end of the school disco.
Here's a link to an article i wrote on Deadpool.

Born in Nashville Tennessee in 1923, Bettie Page would grow up to be the Queen of the 1950s pin up girls.
Maybe not as well remembered as Marilyn Monroe or even Jayne Mansfield but in her hey day Bettie's pictures adorned many a young mans wall.
Bettie was known for her rather risque for the time pictures, including full frontal nude shots, quite rare in the 1950s.
Here is a video of Bettie dancing with an added modern sound track.
The Notorious Bettie Page is a 2005 film starring Gretchen Mol as Bettie , it is well worth checking out.
