1. "Bring Me Sunshine" (3:53)

Notes: This was released as a charity single on 15 Dec 2017 to raise money for the Rays of Sunshine Children's Charity. Singers Boe and Ball had recorded "Bring Me Sunshine" on their album Together Again, released earlier in the year. Here they re-recorded it (on 1 Dec 2017) with an all-star cast. Wakeman plays the piano intro.

The song was written by composer Arthur Kent and lyricist Sylvia Dee in 1966 and performed by American artists in the late 1960s. However, it was popularised in the UK by the comedy duo Morecambe & Wise, who adopted it as their signature tune for their second BBC series in 1969. (HP, 4 Jan 18)
