I've been spending quality time listening to different stations around the world. That lone one in China plays really weird stuff!

Diva/JB - Diva I believe you brought this song up before and I have forgotten it ...again! It's a song with date in it or the word "yesteryear", I believe. It is not the Carpenter song. Seems like it was written or performed by a female lead.

Thought that was what you were thinking. Very nice, wistful song.



During my morning walk, I thought about the start of the Great Recession - 2007, correct? - and how that was more than ten years ago! Ten years nothing. Where have the past twenty years gone?!? Work, eat, sleep, repeat.

Don't recall where/when I heard about this song (maybe here?). Austin City Limits or similar program? Kind of mesmerizing...

The Bad Company video reminded me of this...without all the silly cars getting in the way.

This song was pretty popular back in the '90s. Heard it again, recently, while watching American Honey (a 2016 movie that I listed in the Feb. movie thread).

I wasn't in prison during the 90's, but may as well have been (work, school, family). LOL Not surprisingly, I missed it. One YouTube comment: Anthony Bourdain on the tambourine.

A thread fav I did not miss, but did not appreciate follows. Saw if once or twice on MTV, yet never really listened to the incredible vocals coming from that unbelievable face (pronounced "fice").

Enjoy!

Like the vocals in this song, too. In 2011, this band first released its self-titled EP, Brother/Sister, but then changed the band’s name to Wardell. The singer is Steven Spielberg’s daughter, Sasha. Spielberg’s adopted son, Theo, is also in the band. Sasha is the woman in the tan shirt and can be seen throughout the video, but especially at the 2:15 and 2:52 marks.

Opossum has a Mayberry, Upper Sandusky - circa 1962 vibe. along with a dash of David Lynch. I like!

Use to stare at a painting at my Dr.'s office on Main St. of a woods (lonely dark and deep) and it would transport/transfix me until I was called back for my hydrogen peroxide cleanse (don't ask). This mostly occurred when I was a frosh (1965). I lived just two blocks away from the Dr. so I walked there. (Always felt weird back in those ancient days to be out and about during school hours.)

This is either a happy song ...or a prelude to a human sacrifice!! (Kidding... .)

Always loved that painting! Can't describe to this day what it did to me; I guess that would be a good definition of art. (It's like the painting in Ferris Bueller. If I say, Sloan is hot and you understand it, then you know about F.B and the museum scene.)

Stumbled upon a McCartney song this morning with Breakfast With The Beatles, - "So Bad" - from "Pipes of Peace"; nice video featuring Ringo and Linda Mc. Sweet song.

Oppossum - Wardell

[Verse 1]
Oh, oh, my darling, now's the time for us to fight
Oh, I've been waiting since you said, "Hello, my friend"

[Verse 2]
I was so helpless trying to admire you
Oh, ainít it funny that I've turned my brain to blue?

[Verse 3]
Oh, darling, stay; No, I feel like this anyway
Oh, if you knew that I'm only halfway through

[Refrain]
Our love is buried in the wake
Hello, my friend, hello, my friend
Our love is buried in the wake
Hello, my friend, hello, my friend
Our, our, love, love is buried in the wake
Hello, my friend, hello, my friend
Our, our, love, love is buried in the wake
Hello, my friend, hello, my friend
Our love is buried in the wake
Hello, my friend, hello
Our, our, love, love is buried in the wake
Hello, my friend, hello, my friend
Our love is buried in the wake
Hello, my friend, hello, my friend
Our love

Cool song; cute Sasha!



I had forgotten McC had done this song - I think.

Sorry today to read of the death of Peter Tork, former member of The Monkees. Hard to believe he was 77 years old . Another source listed his age at 75, so not real clear on his actual age ? Sounds like some more Fake News
is floating around.


RIP : Peter Tork

My 7 year-old self would always feel sad for Peter during the show intro when his picture kept showing up with the wrong name - and then I'd cheer when the right graphic finally came up.

* * * * *

Ugh - witnessed a bad injury at a small college basketball game on Monday. A young man (skinny build, average height) who's adept at slashing in to the paint, went up and got taken down hard on his back. We were worried he'd hit his head, but apparently he reached back to break his fall, and both bones in his arm snapped just above the wrist ....

I've been working high school and college games for nearly 24 years, and I can't help but cringe every time I think there's going to be a major injury - but nothing happens worse than a sprain or a bad bruise.

Before Monday, I think I'd seen two broken legs (football) and one skull fracture (basketball) in that time frame. It amazes me that I don't see more injuries like that, considering the amount of torque, collisions, impacts with the floor, etc, that I see night after night.

I guess God made the human body a little tougher than I think it is sometimes, and I'm thankful for that.

I was a frosh the year The Monkees debuted. I watched but I wasn't overwhelmed by the lads. I did like several of their songs - my favorite one (by Liquid Paper heir) Mike Nesmith was "What Am I Doing Hanging 'Round" nice folk/rock/country song.

I recall Mickey Dolenz in Circus Boy. We saw his show a few years ago and it is the worst we have encountered.

I believe "Tork" was an English teacher either before or after being cast in the group.

And wasn't Davy Jones and more of the cast from Oliver on the Ed Sullivan Show the first night The Beatles appeared? (I know a 14-year old Phil Collins ended up being in the audience at a performance within the movie Hard Day's Night.)

RIP - Peter Tork, you made a lot of people happy with your music and antics.

The Monkees were my favorite band of all time...at the age of nine.

For what it's worth (pun intended): Stephen Stills auditioned for The Monkees, but was rejected because he had bad teeth.

RIP Peter Tork.

I loved The Monkees. Davy was my favorite by far. Peter and Davy can start it up again now.

Awful story about the injury, Zunardo. Makes me cringe.

1960 Chevy...


"Night Moves"


I was a little too tall
Could've used a few pounds
Tight pants points hardly reknown
She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high

Out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy
Out in the back seat of my '60 Chevy
Workin' on mysteries without any clues
Workin' on our night moves
Tryin' to make some front page drive-in news
Workin' on our night moves
In the summertime
In the sweet summertime

We weren't in love, oh no, far from it
We weren't searchin' for some pie in the sky summit
We were just young and restless and bored
Livin' by the sword
And we'd steal away every chance we could
To the backroom, to the alley or the trusty woods
I used her, she used me
But neither one cared
We were gettin' our share
Workin' on our night moves
Tryin' to lose the awkward teenage blues
Workin' on our night moves
And it was summertime
Sweet summertime summertime

And oh the wonder
We felt the lightning
And we waited on the thunder
Waited on the thunder

I awoke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain't it funny how the night moves
When you just don't seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closing in
---
Started humming a song from 1962
I wonder: what song that would have been?

Could have been...


#1s from 1962...


Got a pick? ... top 100 from 1962...

What a great list of songs from '62. I was a ten-year old fifth grader and spent a lot of time listening tot my transistor radio. Had a paper route that I walked and I sung and hummed many a song from that time.

I believe he was humming "Moon River". Kindly wistful.

Lost power for nearly 2 hours last night. Thankfully, I had just finished my dinner, and power was restored before bedtime. The crazy part was that none of the houses on the adjacent streets lost power. A few local school districts are closed today due to no power.

#38 - "Twist and Shout," but prefer The Beatles' version (1963) over the 1962 one by The Isley Brothers. Or, maybe I just like it better because it was in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, lol.

Over the years, I've mentioned the Akron Goodyear Wingfoots and the old industrial leagues. For the basketball fans and old-timers, I've posted the link below. It's a short video (1:16) concerning the history of the Wingfoots. It's in conjunction with their 100-year anniversary. I'm sure many people have seen the Wingfoots' logo on the Cavs' jerseys and have no idea about the old Goodyear Wingfoots:



ROCK ON!

Yes, but good info nonetheless. Al Lewis (Grandpa Munster) was a "bird-dog" (independent) basketball scout for years. He worked predominately in NYC, but also had strong ties in Pittsburgh. Years ago, it was not unusual to see him at Howard Garfinkel's 5-Star Camp in Honesdale (PA) or at the B/C Camp in Milledgeville (GA). He'd be chewing on a cigar and looking for good high school talent to recommend to his college coaching buddies.

ROCK ON!
