Song of the Week: Knocked ’em in the Old Kent Road

An unusual choice this week, prompted by my having recently bought a first edition of Albert Chevalier’s 1901 memoirs, Before I Forget.

Chevalier wrote this song, with music composed by his brother Charles Ingle (born Auguste Chevalier), in 1891.  It’s testimony to the songwriting genius of the Chevalier brothers that the song still sounds as fresh and modern as it will have sounded when first performed 124 years ago.

And Fozzie Bear’s performance, to my mind, does the song justice–so sit back and enjoy!
