It Never Rains in Southern California

Written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, is a song first released by Hammond, a British born singer-songwriter, in 1972. This was a song which, in the UK, although very frequently played and requested on radio, never made it into the charts. Video is stock footage of the San Francisco area.

You Got It

A song from Roy Orbison's album, Mystery Girl (1989). It hit number three on the UK Singles Chart in the spring of 1989. This was a few months after Orbison's death of a heart attack on December 6, 1988, at the age of 52. This version is close to the original. Video is just a collection of stills.

Lay Back in the Arms of Someone

A song co-written by Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman, performed by the English band Smokie. Reached the charts in 1977. This version is close to the original. Harmonies are created real-time in the keyboard. The video is a collection of licensed stock-footage stills.

Help Yourself

The song is one of Jones' best known songs and reached the top 5 in the United Kingdom in its original run. "Help Yourself" is a rewrite of the song "Gli Occhi Miei" which was written by Carlo Donida with lyrics by Mogol and originally performed by both Dino (Eugenio Zambelli[1]) and Wilma Goich at the 1968 Sanremo festival. Jack Fishman provided the English lyrics. Video is stock footage stills.

Release Me, Keith Venn

Beyond the Sea

A 1946 contemporary pop romantic love song by Charles Trenet, with music taken from his song "La Mer" and lyrics by Jack Lawrence. Trenet had composed "La Mer" (which means "the Sea") with French lyrics completely different and unrelated to the English language version that Lawrence later wrote. This is a version that souds like the Michael Buble version. Video was taken in the Solent during April 2014, but ends just before the song finishes.

Release Me

Release Me became a hit for both Jimmy Heap and Ray Price, in 1954. The best-known version is the one sung by Englebert Humperdinck and reached the UK charts in 1967 and was his first chart hit. This version is similar to the Englebert version and the video is just a collection of icons.

Whispering Grass
Frosty the Snowman

Whispering Grass

Whispering Grass (Don't Tell The Trees) was written by Fred Fisher and his daughter Doris Fisher. First recorded by Erskine Hawkins & His Orchestra in 1940. The Ink Spots also recorded it the same year. Whispering Grass was a 1975 UK number-one single by Windsor Davies and Don Estelle. This version is slow and soulfull, with vocals and using the 40's Ballad style on the Tyros 5 (including the backing voices!)

Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the Snowman was written by Walter "Jack" Rollins and Steve Nelson, and first recorded by Gene Autry in 1950. The song supposedly takes place in White Plains, New York, or Armonk, New York. Armonk has a parade dedicated to Frosty annually. This version makes use of the harmoniser feature on the Tyros 5 and the video is made up of stock stills.
