For a reason I do not yet understand, I yodeled on the bus home from a rugby match last Sunday. That sounds weirder than it is but they were singing 'The Lonely Goat Herd' from The Sound of Music and it has a little yodel in it.

"High on a hill was a lonely goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo"

And when they got to that part, I yodeled it. Much to the enjoyment of the rest of the team. They made me yodel some more (I only knew one song, thank God).

I thought everyone could make sounds like that but apparently not. they have now mentioned they will do The Sound of Music at the Christmas panto, just so that I can yodel in it. I think not.

However, I have been looking for another song I could learn to yodel, just so I don't have to sing the same silly song all the time. And then I came across Margo Smith, the Queen of Country yodeling. My lord, she's good. And strangely addictive to listen to.

But wait, it gets better. They yodel in Korea too! In full Austrian costume.

I have a LOT of practice to do before I am that good at it.
