I was still in grammar school when that came out.


On a quieter note

@Letty,
That was a smooth rendition of "Sweet Adeline".


Grim topic, but nice guitar styling

@neko nomad,
Speaking as an "older listener". thanks.
The only Johnny Ray song I'm familiar with is "Cry".
Did he sing that on Ed Sullivan?
I remember a parody version that started
"If your sweetheart
sends a letter
to your wife . . . "


This one's recent


Regina Spektor -- The Visit

@Letty,
I think "Jesus Christ Superstar" can be a good teaching tool.


Some day I feel like this

@George,
Thanks again for your comment, dear friend, and Vance Joy doing Mess is Mine, has happened to many of us. Smile

You reminded me of this one that I sang as a kid. I couldn't sing it as high
as these kids, so I did it lower

Going to take a cat nap now. Stayed up too late last night.

@Letty,
The line "Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me" always bothered
me. How can you play a song on a tambourine?


Let's get gritty

@George,
You're right, dear friend, I wondered about that so I went searching:

Tambourines come in many shapes with the most common being circular. It is found in many forms of music: Turkish folk music, Greek folk music, Italian folk music, classical music, Persian music, gospel music, pop music and rock music.

Let's get gritty was great by The Black Keys.

What's so true about Grit.

Saying good afternoon now with three songs:

Here's one introduced to me by Garland Bruse. <sniff>

, a movie trailer ah, me, got another warning that this page
wasn't availabel. <sigh> Maybe tomorrow it will play.

Now, a famous trio that I used to think were from England, but
they're really from Texas.

@Letty,
I once with a girl who was totally nuts about Elvis.
She went to several of his shows and I bet she was a screamer.


This one's fun

@George,
Good Thor's Day, dear friend. Thanks for your comments and
I truly enjoyed She Just Wants to Dance; Last Minute Man and One Big
Love.

Hope I didn't miss any of your contributions, George, as I still a bit
dreamy eyed. Smile

Here's an interesting resolution by TCM. They are\
declaring that the golden oldies are the best.

Let me know what you think.

Love this one by George:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyIyJpqL82Y

Here are the lyrics:
This lovely day will lengthen into evening
We'll sigh goodbye to all we ever had
Alone where we have walked together
I'll remember April and be glad
I'll be content you loved me once in April
Your lips were warm, and love and spring were new
I'm not afraid of autumn and her sorrow
For I'll remember April and you

Having a few problems here; are you surprised? Wink

@George,
Ah, dear friend, it was Joan's birthday, but like that horse
statue, I remember her mane but not her pace. Smile

Now, dear Nat:

If I've played this one before, it's worth playing twice:
