Happy Again - Ronnie Hilton

Taking the happiness thing a bit further, here is Ronnie Hilton singing his version of Happy Again. Ronnie Hilton was a favourite with my mother, in a recording sense, of course. I remember listening to his Don't Let The Rain Come Down on our Dansette, which we placed on the floor with records strewn around it, being careful not to scratch them as the stylus was lowered for action. A kind of makeshift DJ session. My father poo-pooed the idea of stereo, having only been keen on crystal sets. A tone deaf father meets an ivory tickling mother!

In this clip Ronnie is dressed for the times. With that orange shirt and hankie he would be better placed singing A Windmill in Old Amsterdam.
