Robbie H is me in the 1960s. Last year I released ‘1966: Baby Me’ – a ridiculous loop of me trying to sing something when I was 18 months old. I found it on an old reel-to-reel tape of my dad’s. A year on, my mum asks me to sing ‘Come On All Ye Faithful’ as it is Christmas time and my brothers and big sis are singing carols. I refuse and sing the Christmas number one at the time – or is it? ‘I say hello, you say goodbye’ is the Beatles’ ‘Hello Goodbye’ line ‘You say goodbye, I say hello’ the wrong way round. And the tune is different. So I added some chords and backed it with a 1980s poppy electronica and this is what you have in ‘Hello Goodbye Hello Again’. A novelty record for sure. I made a video too – which includes Grandad H a railwayman in Manchester at the time. In these Covid times I’d like to think the song has extra resonance the comings and goings of family and friends in difficult times.
