My Life in Music – Ortis Deley
Most of us know presenter and TV personality Ortis Deley. He is a key figure in our childhood TV viewing (think Live & Kicking and Short Change) and for the more technically minded amongst us, is also one of the main presenters from Gadget Show (not really been the same since both Ortis and Suzi Perry left). He also DJs on Choice FM and whilst we haven’t asked Ortis, an obvious highlight must be his appearance on Chucklevision with the legends that are the Chuckle brothers. With this in mind, we asked Ortis to be the second star to feature in the My Life in Music feature (read the first by singer/songwriter Frank Turner).
My Life in Music Ortis Deley
Number one on the day you were born
See My Baby Jive by Wizzard
My Favourite song
Always Will by Tweet. It’s one that sums up my wife and I and it was our first dance.
Song that Reminds Me of My Childhood
Muh Na Muh Na by The Muppets. As a kid, my life was about cartoons and these guys. You’re lucky I didn’t pic a theme tune *hums ‘Top Cat’ theme*
The Muppets – Muh na mah na
First Song Ever Bought
Automatic by The Pointer Sisters. This was purchased on the day of my 10th birthday party and it was thanks to these girls that it was a success.
What is my Karaoke Banker?
Kiss from a Rose by Seal. For those few minutes, it’s all about me.
Song Guaranteed to Make Me Dance
She’s Got That Vibe by R. Kelly and The Public Announcement. Nothing moves me like like New Jack Swing from Guy through Wreckx ‘N’ Effect to Boyz II Men.
Song to Walk out to if I was a Boxer
War / Fanfare by Vince DiCola. It’s from the Rocky IV soundtrack which is still the ultimate training companion!

Song to Mark My Teenage Years
Poison by Bel Biv DeVoe. This was when I began listening to friends and record store recommendations for music and not the radio.
Song That Remind Me of My First Love
Saturday Night by Whigfield. Hey I was at uni and we met at a student cheesy club night!
