Diva - Yes, This Guy's In Love With You. Slow dancing.

ohoopup - It is indeed Mr. Prine on 18 with junkie Sam Stone. He is an acquired taste with his Dylanesque voice and delivery. I like.

Diva - you have inadvertently placed No. 6 back in play as in rechecking Monclova's answer, I realized it was incorrect. John did say, "The walrus is (was) Paul bu he didn't say it it "I Am The Walrus".

So, I believe we still have 6, 4, 9, and 15 open. Answer whatever you want

Aside here for a moment: I am reading an article about Johnny Depp, whom I've admired for a long time in spite of his personal troubles. The article referenced his best friend Tom Petty's video "Into the Great Wide Open", in which Johnny played an up-and-coming rocker who eventually loses it all. Johnny, Tom, and Nicolas Cage were friends when they were young, and it was Cage who encouraged Johnny to go into acting rather than a music career.



I enjoyed the video. Here's the article if you're interested, from Rolling Stone.

4. Is by Brian's band.

6. The title includes a vegetable.

9. A young rock star's dream on this live performance on You Tube when the girls rush the stage. Great, great song. A very good person. Got himself a Jersey girl.

16. This singer's initials are G.S.

Clean it up!

If I may correct my faux pas (did I spell that right/) on #6 earlier......despite Diva's confidence in me for which I am grateful, I must admit that I spoke before I thought. Obviously, after seeing the word "walrus" I lost any pretense of thought and went straight to the most obvious title "I Am the Walrus" by John Lennon.
After Bevo's most courteous non-acceptance of my answer, I put some more brain power into it (actually I started singing the words). It's actually "Glass Onion".
I feel so much better now.

Monclova - "Looking through a glass onion". Correct on No. 6.

4. and 9. are doable by you! Probably even 15.

11:00 tonight.

As Woody Allen once said in a movie, "A shark has to keep moving or it dies. What we have here is a dead shark."

4. The other Wendy song is by The Beach Boys.

9. This is Springsteen doing the classic Rosalita.

15. This is Gilbert O'sullivan doing the not so classic, Clair.

Like Mayday Sam Malone said, "Bar's closed."

Same as you, Diva.
Those weren't "doable" by me, even with a day's worth of clues.
Good quiz though, Bevo.

#23 is "Speedy Gonzalez" by Pat Boone.
In the interest of camraderie on here, I won't comment any further.

Mon - good job on the hot rocker, Speedy Gonzalez by the hot rocker, Pat Boone.
Eagle Guy with a major assist on the Debbie Boone portion of the family.

I did not time to recircle the wagons on 23 as we were headed out to see American Animals. Very good movie about four college guys attempting a real heist at Translyvania University in Kentucky. Priceless works by Audubon and Darwin.

As a clever conceit that have the real guys commenting at times on what happened. All went to federal prison but are now out. Happened in 2004.

JB and I both mentioned the Jerry Lee Lewis book by Richard Brgag. Not only the best rock bio. I have ever read - but maybe the best biography, period.

Currently reading Paul Simon, A Life by Robert Hilburn. Good read - I am still back in the 60's part but the earlier stuff was fascinating.

Reading another book about Eleanor Roosevelt and her friend Loraine Hickcock - Eleanor and Hick is the title and I don't recall the author's name. Very good and has a lot of the peripheral stuff about the administration. Lots of secrets back then - including FDR's polio and this "friendship". Not a lurid book at all.

I have reserved the Paul Simon book from the library, also the Art Garfunkel one.

I'm currently listening to Pete Townsend narrate his book, "Who I Am". Very good so far. In the first few pages he'll explain how he got to destroying guitars from the very beginning, and it was quite by accident.

I love that Dionee Warwick song; very sad in an overtly emotional way. I believe that was popular in 64-65.
Put it in the same category as Little Anthony and The Imperials' Hurts So Bad.

"I know you don't know what I'm going through. Standing here loooking at youuuu".

As long as we are at it throw in Barbara Lewis with "Make Me Your Baby" and "Hello Stranger - both with the same emotional imput but more optimistic, with "Make Me Your Baby" being very optimistic!

I sang "Hurt So Bad" last year at a performance. I've always liked that song, both Linda Ronstadt's and The Lettermen versions.

Very moving...I don't believe there is a subpar version...of course, I didn't hear yours...Wayward... always teasing the girls!! I'm sure it was great - your entire family is extremely musical.

Wouldn't it be great if you were singing somewhere and all of us showed up and sat in the front row - totally awesome!!!!!!

Just listened and watched Little Anthony... on Hurts So Bad again - what an emotional performance. Diva - this would call for reaching down way deep.

About the Dionne Warwick video. What did they call these little films back then? Were these made for disc jockeys? There really wasn't any place to play them and I don't recall any shows that used them.

Also, the video is just bizarre; it appears that Dionne is on a roof top somewhere and that these guys (watch it all) are stalking her. I also found it strange that in keeping with contemporary taste at that time, which did not reflect reality, the entire group of men is White!

It's as though, for that time, the "normal" thing to have done would have been to put her with a Black guy or two; but instead they used no Black males because after all, who could handle dominant Black performers in these videos. Or maybe I am just full of it.

It's a strange video.

Now, for something infinitely more pleasant and fun, check out car pool karaoke with Cordon and Paul McCartney. Just great as Paul moves around Liverpool with James singing songs and surprising the Liverpudians.

I saw that a few days ago. What a fun time for everyone in Liverpool to see their favorite son. James and Sir Paul looked like they had a ball doing it, too.

Just watched Dionne's video. That's probably the weirdest video I've ever seen! And is she holding Voodoo doll?

Ohiopup referenced Bob Seger's album with "Her Strut". Looked it up - I had no idea it was written about Jane Fonda.

Films like this were made promos or replay on music programs like
'American Bandstand' and some that were more regional in
nature, especially if the artists had conflicting schedules and could not make
a personal appearance. (I'm thankful that they captured the moment.)

In the early to mid 70's WAKR-TV out of Akron had a 1/2 hour music
program on that showed nothing but these 'videos', no commercials
mid-program, only at the start and end of the half hour.

I don't think you are full of it...
Don't forget ~ targeted audience

It could all be subliminal.

There you go again, being sublime! So, what/who was the audience?

Yes, the voodoo doll.

Working on those night moves. And, Jane still has "the strut" at 80!!!

Countdown #3

Countdown #3


Her Strut

Was a track on Seger's Album Against the Wind



In a 1980 radio interview, legendary rock musician Bob Seger stated that the song
"Her Strut" from his album Against the Wind was about Jane Fonda and his
admiration for her confidence and strength to speak her mind in Congressional hearings.
He said, "I think she's a great role model."

Jane Fonda...


The rest of the girls...


She's totally committed
To major independence
But she's a lady through and through
She gives them quite a battle
All that they can handle
She'll bruise some
She'll hurt some too
But oh they love to watch her strut
Oh they do respect her but
They love to watch her strut

Sometimes they'll want to leave her
Just give up and leave her
But they would never play that scene
In spite of all her talking
Once she starts in walking
The lady will be all they ever dreamed
Oh they'll love to watch her strut
Oh they'll kill to make the cut
They love to watch her strut

Yeah love to watch her strut
Watch her strut

Now, I have known who John Prine is for many years and I have used him on a quiz or two. However, you can't hear and/or buy everything but right now my new (to me) most favorite song is In Spite Of Ourselves sung live on You Tube by John Prine and Iris Demint. Love it.
Several duets out there including one with Kasey Musgraves and Emily Lou Harris.

Musgraves approached Prine years ago as a young girl with a buddy and ask John if he wanted to go outside and "burn one". He declined. She was a minor, illegal drug, etc. Musgraves then writes a song entitled I Want To Burn One With John Prine. Then, she becomes successful There's a clip of her singing the song to him. Very moving and the song is humorous. Has to be if it involves J. P. The singer with the gravelly voice, the wry smile and the human lyrics.

"He's a whacked out weirdo and a love bug junkie. He's sly as a fox and crazy as a loon. When payday comes he's a howlin' at the moon".

From In Spite Of Ourselves By John Prine

Another quiz is coming - tomorrow or Sat. (probably tomorrow); one before the holidays.

Well, we'll see who is in the house this weekend and wants to play. This may ending up stretching to Sunday or Monday.

Category is the same - these are references to people or names that people could be called. Four correct responses today. Any extras - please testify.

1. Laua Nyro did it in '68 and it was a hit for this group in '69. Top 10

2. Done in '54 by a band that had no more hits. Their name refers to animals around the icy parts of the world.

3. While I'm far away from you my baby. Whisper a little prayer for me my baby. A hit in '61 and again in '66. Love the ending with the group repeating two choruses of the lyrics. Harmonies to die for.

4. Come on, come on, come on and dance with me. '66 JB - he's your guy!

5. I never understood a single word he said. Written by Hoyt Axton. Repeat group who was very popular but somewhat diminished and dismissed today.

6. Put me in coach I'm ready to play.

7. Don't want your love anymore. Don't want your kisses that's for sure.

8. Laura and Tommy were lovers. '60

9. From '67. Obsessive, urgent and insistent. Levi Stubbs and his back up singers.

10. From '82; the muse on this hit was in a movie with Madonna called Desperately Seeking Susan. I like.

11. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty ___ ____.

12. This song is as weird as they come. It was by Whistlin' Jack Smith. I never understand how songs like this became hits.

13. She married a Gibb. Those school girls days of telling tales and biting nails are gone.

14. Love this. Don't walk ahead of that woman like she don't belong to you. Just 'cause her got those little ___ ___. You didn't act like that when you had her home last night behind closed doors.

15. Artie called this Paul's best love song. I agree.

16. What a dream I had pressed in organdy and clothed in crinoline of smokey burgandy softly.

17. Written by Rod McQuen and sung by Oliver. Good movie.

18. I've never really noticed how good you are to me. It just so happens I'm free tonight would you like to have dinner with me?

19. Baby hair with with woman's eyes. All alone with me we're waiting for the sunrise.

20. Big hits for Cilla Black and Dionne Warwick. Sort of sad. A good movie.

21. In love with his best friend's girl. Released on Working Class Dog. TVactor/heart throb?

22. All the world thinks she's a spy. She's got... . Singer was in The New Christy Minstels.

23. Fountains of Wayne.

24. I've seen your picture. Your name in lights above it.

25. Way back when in '67 I was the dandy of Gamma Chi. Sweet things from Boston. So young and willing. I moved down to Scarsdale where the hell am I?

26. It wasn't me who started that ole crazy Asian war. But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chore.

27/28. The Leaves and Hendrix.

29. The B side was Wipe Out.

30. Yes, because the saddest thing in the whole wide world is to see your baby with another girl. OWK knows this one.
