I am not sure how I could post three awful music numbers and forget this absolute classic.

At the last Vineyard church where I worked as a youth/student pastor one of my youth guys [and now students] is a guy called Kent-Leigh which was a unique name for me but we got to know Kent-Leigh and watched him grow up and learn to speak and all was good and well and normal in the world, until this happened:

A lady auditioning for the Bulgarian version of Pop Idol [called Music Idol] surprised the panel of judges by confidently announcing that she will be singing the hit song ‘Ken Lee’ [I think the ‘T’ was silent] and went ahead to sing this classic Mariah Carey number she had obviously ‘learned the words’ from just listening to it… and so Ken Lee Tulibu Diboo Douchoo was born [which we sing full volume every time we hang with Kent-Leigh and he loves it. Probably].

I give you ‘Ken(t) Lee’:

Well, you know the vibe – it’s Monday again and I’ve taken it on myself that no-one should start the week with Monday blues and so in a bid to put a smile on your face [although this week’s smile strongly resembles a grimace] here are three music-related clips to inspire you [to thinking greater thoughts about your own shower voice]. If you only have enough time for one of them, then the challenge is to see if you can sit through the whole of the third one [my favourite part being the breath the singer takes mid-note] but all of these are classic[al] in their own right:

I give you the theme to Titanic. A powerfully moving piece, until this guy picked up his recorder:

Theme song to Titanic the way you probably don’t remember it. [Not Safe For Having Friends after you’ve made them listen to it]

Next up is that rousing theme which helped transport us into a world where dinosaurs became real once more and walked the earth:

The theme song to Jurassic Park. In a different other way you probably don’t remember. I think it’s great:

And then finally, one of the greatest song clips of all time and truly a lesson in endurance. Fill the room with people. Gather them around the screen. And press play on this soulful rendition of ‘O Holy Night’
