Jim I ADD: Billy Connolly songs (56* d) RE: ADD: Billy Connolly songs 14 Apr 09


I'm not sure that 'As Usual' is a Connolly original. When I started out years ago looking for song origins I was told by someone that the song was written by a Sean Tierney, a regular at the Scotia Bar in Glasgow. It is a parody of an Alex Zanetis song (sung by Brenda Lee amongst others) which I have seen elsewhere on a Mudcat thread.

Hamish Imlach also sings the song on one of his albums where it is credited 'Murphy/Zanetis'. I suspect Murphy may be Noel Murphy but have no way of knowing.
