Herself and I were in Notting Hill today when we spotted this highly creative street musician performing on the side of the road. If the video isn’t clear enough, he’s playing on a tennis racket, an old typewriter and a cutlery set – Yes, you read that correctly. The song, “Hit the road Jack”, was written and first recorded in 1960 by rhythm and bluesman Percy Mayfield. The song reached a wider audience and international fame after it was recorded by Ray Charles in 1961. I think Mayfield and Charles both would have approved of this busker’s innovative take on the song.
