Singing for PTSD and Balanced Mental Health: Three more Podcasts > Kitchen Karaoke: Homeless Special | Gypsy Woman Crystal Waters | Running Wild Cockney Rebel | The Age Of Aquarius The 5th Dimension

Singing can have some of the same effects as exercise, like the release of endorphins, which give the singer an overall “lifted” feeling and are associated with stress reduction. It’s also an aerobic activity, meaning it gets more oxygen into the blood for better circulation, which tends to promote a good mood.

Singing actually changes the brain by moving musical vibrations through you thereby altering both your physical and emotional landscape. Because singing is like getting a dose of the perfect tranquiliser, it really does soothe your nerves and elevate your spirit. The singer feels both calm and energized and it doesn’t cost anything.

THE KITCHEN KARAOKE CHALLENGE > Singalong with Lara Wilson HOMELESS Special New York ‘Memory Lane 1991’ FLASHBACK with Crystal Waters Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)

When you get told by your nan that ‘cousin Nicky’ needs a job (age 15 and stroppy) because “She’s hanging about outside the chip shop in Tadley with holes in her jumper.” Nicky was into the Smiths, trying out cider and fags with other bored teenagers who liked wearing black and being difficult. I didn’t need any staff but fearing the wrath of ‘nanny short’ AKA Doris or ‘Doll-Doll’ to her many sisters and brothers I invented a job for ‘Miss Grunge’ herself ‘Nicky Noo-Noo.’ The rest is history in the karmic book of shadow work and supports the advice that it’s unwise to work with children, animals or family.

Down Memory Lane to New York, New York in 1991 for my cuz Nicky’s first-ever trip to America. Her geography was a bit off, we couldn’t find Godzilla but we flew around lady Liberty, found Amytiville house of horror and she impersonated me so we could blag a hire car that got towed. What a trip! NYC no wonder they named it twice or we would have missed it trying to get to Florida and back in 24 hours. Here’s to my annoying cousin who was once brave and didn’t always moan like Victor Meldrew

Victor Meldrew is a fictional character in the BBC One sitcom One Foot in the Grave, created by David Renwick and portrayed by Richard Wilson. The character epitomised the archetypal grumpy old man. Meldrew is a foil for the bothersome aspects of children, cars, animals, power cuts and next-door neighbours. Wikipedia

“When it comes to the song itself, the lyrics came straight out of reality. It’s about a woman who stood in front of the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC, on Connecticut Avenue. My sister worked in the hotel and I’d walk past this woman around once a week, and she looked fine. She didn’t look like she was homeless. She always had a full face of makeup and black clothes and she’d be singing these gospel songs. I used to think, “Well, why don’t you go and get a job instead of asking me for money?”

Then there was an article on her in the paper! It said she’d just lost her job in retail, and she said that she thought if she was going to ask people for money then she should at least look presentable. And that changed my idea of homelessness. It could happen to anyone. Before that, I just had to hook down. Then I read that and the lyrics came to me. Like she was singing it.

I never had any idea it’d have the impact that it did. I thought it’d just be a Washington record, a Baltimore record, maybe a New York one if I was lucky. I even kept my job for two years after it came out. I remember doing Top of the Pops and thinking, “Yep, maybe I can go part-time now…” It took me a while to realize just how big that song was, and still is. I could never have foreseen it. I just feel grateful and thankful that I sat down and wrote the song. It came at a time when you sit down and think “I can either stick with this 9-5 job or take a risk and do something different.” And I’m so glad I did.

Cuz Nicky and Win Smith serenade me with Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me) by Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel 1974


“You’ve done it all, you’ve broken every code
And pulled the rebel to the floor

You spoiled the game, no matter what you say
For only metal, what a bore …”
