Whiter Shade of Pale

Tuesday, January 27, 2015      5 comments

Always liked this song, but mostly just hummed along. I'd chime in with "trip the light fandango" and "whiter shade of pale". When I looked it up, I realized it was from 1967. One of the jokes about the 60's is, "If you remember them, you didn'... Read more

She Loves You

Monday, January 26, 2015      7 comments

In 1963, this was the Beatles first big hit. "I Want to Hold Your Hand" that I blogged yesterday, would have jumped to #1 immediately in England, but was blocked by "She Loves You". Oddly enough, in the US, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" hit it big ... Read more

Can I Skip Winter?

Sunday, January 25, 2015      12 comments

I never really liked cold weather with ice and snow. When I saw the movie "Grumpy Old Men", I told my friends "I never want to live somewhere that's so cold you can go out into the middle of a frozen lake, put up a shelter, build a fire to keep ... Read more

Ride Captain Ride

Thursday, January 22, 2015      10 comments

From the 70's comes the Blues Image's one-hit wonder, Ride Captain Ride. The group wrote and recorded it. Their story is they needed a song right away, and the keyboard ha 73 keys. From that, the song evolved. It was later remixed as a "psyched... Read more

Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes

All kinds of weather alerts for today and tomorrow. Yesterday, the pups and I walked 5 miles. It was 57 degrees and sunny. Only wore a vest to have something to tuck Spartacus into at times. Today was 42 with wind gusts - supposed to have snow t... Read more

Sea Cruise

Saturday, January 17, 2015      7 comments

I was looking up songs by the Murmaids, and found "Sea Cruise" - can't verify the lyrics are these, but here's the version Herman's Hermits sang in 1988. Frankie Ford first recorded it in 1959. This one will get your toes tapping! Read more

I'm So Excited

Friday, January 16, 2015      9 comments

From 1982 comes the Pointer Sisters and I'm So Excited. I looked at the exercise song of the day (also by the Pointer Sisters), and, I don't know, the lyrics sounded more suggestive ... and, yeah, I know these are a bit suggestive, also. Read more

Popsicles, Icicles

Still freezing (OK, I know it's relative - we had wind chills to high 20's low 30's - nothing like minus whatever a lot of places are getting. But, I'm still cold). Yesterday was drizzly, windy, and generally mucky. Didn't drag the pups out - I ... Read more
