Number 1 in the pop charts in Sheffield on Reverbnation

12 Aug

The act at number 1 this evening, on Reverbnation’s pop charts in Sheffield is a Singing Telegram Company. Reverbnation creates this chart based on the number of plays and fan interactions that an artist or group has, for each area, and in each genre. I would hazzard a guess that this is the first time that a singing telegram company has acheived this, but then this is no ordinary singing telegram company. This is The real Singing Telegram Company. They pride themselves on writing real personalised songs all about the loved one being surprised. They also create a full band production audio CD of the very song and present it to the person to treasure forever. So granted this is like no other singing telegram performance ever.

After each performance the company creates a special multimedia page for the client and more importantly, the recipient. The page can contain videos, photos, the audio track on the CD, and the lyrics. There is also a commnets box, for people to intereact with the page. This week’s pages included a wedding, a retirement, an apology, a declaration of love and Elvis singing for the opening of a new office.

So many members of the family and friends from the clients and recipients played the audio tracks at reverbnation that the company powered to the top of the reverbnation charts. Oh and watching the video of Elvis at IGT offices on youtube played it’s part too. Other singing telegram companies cannot do this because they do not own the copyright to the songs that they sing. These songs are written by a professional songwriter with a degree in Popular music, and have no such copyright issues, so it is unlikely that any other singing telegram company could do this only a Real one. Maybe Minstrel Greetings won’t do it again, but they are there tonight and The Singing telegram industry will never be the same again.

Singing telegrams UK – Apologies

8 Aug

Image

You may be aware that I surprise people with singing telegrams UK, and that I write a special song all about the person that I am singing to. It is often for hen parties, weddings, retirements, birthdays and anniversaries, but increasingly I am being asked to do apologies.

Now these have proved to be very tricky, the dynamics are very different. For any kind of celebration it is usually very easy to track down the person, they will be at their own party.

For an apology, this is certainly not the case. Sometimes, all contact has been cut off with the family and friends of the person needing to be apologised too. I had one like this in Sheffield last week. We could not find the person to sing her special song to her.

Previously I have had a few apology singing telegrams UK booking that never happened, the reasons are actually quite funny, One guy told me, that he had now made up with his girlfriend so he did not need to send the singing telegram uk anymore, another feller told me that his ex-girlfriend had found out what he was planning and was now even more angry than she was in the first place.

So you will forgive me for rolling my eyes when a singing telegrams UK booking comes in and it’s for an apology. However, that all changed this week when a young man from Goole asked me to write a song all about his girlfriend and to then travel to Goole as The Wandering Minstrel to surprise her, sing her song and present her with her CD.

I have no idea what he had done, but he wanted the focus on the song to be how much he loved her, not the apology. I think that is the right approach. The song had lots of the special times that they had shared together, funny moments from their time together.

It was a pleasure to write the song,and it really felt like it was something special.

When I arrived and entered the house, she looked shocked, yes they all do but I just loved the look on her face. I introduced myself as I always do and told her that this wandering minstrel had been sent to sing a declaration of love song all about her.

I asked if she could guess who had sent it. Thankfully she gave the right answer, and there was a lot of emotion in her voice as she did. Her friend could not stop the tears either. I sang her song with all her personal details in it, and then presented her with the lyric sheet and the full band production audio CD of her song.

When I got outside, my client was waiting, too scared  to go in. He looked so nervous, like his life depended on it, I guess it did. I was so pleased to be involved in this and only hope that it had the desired effect. I don’t know why but I really think they should be together and I pray that I played some part in making sure that happens.

Hayley, Michael Loves you so

Now, hayley i’m The Wandering Minstrel, and I’ve travelled far and wide
to sing about this precious love, that I know michael just can’t hide
You’re together 3 and a half years now and it wouldn’t be the same somehow
You’re his Rock and his best friend, his soulmate to the end
And Michael loves you so
You’re his Rock and his best friend, his soulmate to the end
And Michael loves you so

Remember times you had in the blue dolphin,
and a dirty weekend in York I hear
And I heard he proposed to you when he took you to Beverley Market square
And  he had Korma on the first date, with so much ketchup on the plate
You’re his Rock and his best friend, his soulmate to the end
And Michael loves you so
You’re his Rock and his best friend, his soulmate to the end
And Michael loves you so

And  he says you have a massive heart, and if I may assert
when he was away in the army, you missed each other so much that it hurt

And you loved to go in the charter club, but i hear that you weren’t allowed out
until you’d heard Mr brightside on the jukebox there’s no doubt
and you love to down a pint he says, and i hear you have pat butcher  pjs
you’re his Rock and his best friend, his soulmate to the end
And Michael loves you so
You’re his Rock and his best friend, his soulmate to the end
And Michael loves you so

And  he says you have a massive heart, and if I may assert
when he was away in the army, you missed each other so much that it hurt

you’re his Rock and his best friend, his soulmate to the end
And Michael loves you so
You’re his Rock and his best friend, his soulmate to the end
And Michael loves you so
