Poi Dog Pondering:

The American music group Poi Dog Pondering plays alternative rock. The band was founded in Hawaii in 1985, then they moved to Austin and later to Chicago. The line-up of the group fluctuates frequently, but Frank Orrall, Susan Voelz, Dave Max Crawford and John Nelson are in the band from the beginning.

Frank Orrall about Sherlock Holmes actors:

Frank Orrall dignified our site by telling the following:

"I am very fond of Jeremy Brett's portrayal of Sherlock, for me, it is the very best. He brought a humanity and Dandy-ism to the Character.

That having been said, I think Benedict Cumberbatch also did a wonderful job interpreting Sherlock in the 21st Century."



The song title:

The original title is Jeremy Brett, but Jeremy's fans love to say: "I'm in love with Jeremy Brett song".

Jeremy Brett (I'm in love with Jeremy Brett) - song lyrics:

I'm in love with Jeremy Brett.
He was the single greatest Sherlock Holmes. Yet!
In a series on the BBC
I used to watch him here on a & e.

Hair slicked back and impecably dressed.
His only prop could be a single cigarette.
He was an actor in the old regaurd,
who took the stage intent to fully become his part.

He was a sort of dandy in the classic tradition,
a bon vivant filled with bouts of depression.

Sundown sunday, Kensington High Street
in a cabretta with a floral scarf.
London's yours, man! You got Macbeth tonight.
A scull in your hands in the fire light.

Tobacco and champagne and you're feelin alright!
A cab across town and a kiss goodnight.

He played a Holmes that was deep and dark with faults -
richly complex & brilliantly detailed.
A "Damaged penguin" with genious intuition,
an animated spider with singular vision,
who's only need was a case to consume him
to stave his addiction to a certain solution.

David Burke and Edward Hardwicke,
played it perfect as his friend and companion.
A kind hearted, affable Watson.
Everyready with a loyal hand in
any case that Holmes would command him.
I always felt Holmes couldn't do with out him.

Brett's wife died back '85,
all the grief triggered manic depression.
Could see it in his face - that he was heavily grieving.
His heart grew thin and finally stopped beating.

Jeremy Brett!
I never knew you.
OH! Darling!
I dedicate this song to you!
