edgar, I loved that Condor Pass by Simon and Garfunkel. I recall that with clarity, Texas ,and thanks.

Welcome back test Brit. Sorry that I could not access your musical world. Thanks anyway.

Why in the world does our sweetheart tv station always schedule my favorites in the wee small hours of the morning, y'all.?

Letty was a part of the night owl theatre.

Today is Diana Ross' birthday, and although I remember her best for her portrayal of Billie Holiday, I also like this one.

Diana and Julio go well together. And the Memphis and Lonestar songs were nice, too.

You were right about Prince and his little red corvette, Brit. No go on youtube. I did get a small clip of Mario's September Song. That was a surprise. Thanks, dear.

edgar, That Dancing in the Moonlight was fabulous. I loved the way they said "dancin'". Was that King Harvest?

Well, y'all, today is Teddy Pendergrass's birthday, so let's hear one by him. Then we'll listen to what I THOUGHT was the original Song of India and you'll be able to appreciate why I'm not certain if I did or not. Rolling Eyes

Hee, hee. Song of India.

@Raggedyaggie,
Hey, puppy. The version that you did was the swing version of Song of India. Johnny Mercer wrote a more modern set of lyrics, but the melody remains the same. The original lyrics went something like:

"...and still the Ganges waters flow,
They keep on telling me that I should go,
Back to my home in far off India.

There a pair of brown eyes waiting there..."

Something like that.

Thanks again for the great montage and the additional info, PA.

Now here's a surprise, y'all.

Leonard Nimoy?

Live long and prosper, but watch that mind meld.

@edgarblythe,
er, edgar, I think that version of The Night the Lights Went Out would make me tired as well. Razz I'm certain that Vickie could have done better.

Hey, folks, here's a great song by a birthday boy. Sound familiar to any of you rebels out there?

This video is about rock n roll heaven. I didn't recognize some of the ones featured, but the names get scrolled at the end. The shortcomings of such an enterprise is, it only covers a small portion of deserving artists from the past.

@edgarblythe,
edgar, that was a great slide show of those gone before. Thanks, Texas.

Tried my best to find Otis Redding's original Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay without much luck; however, this guy is good, so I thought we would give it a listen, y'all.

Have Urs and BigDice looking for the original lyrics to Song of India.

Here is a new addition to the lexicon, letty.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. " Dan Seals, who was England Dan in the pop duo England Dan and John Ford Coley and later had a successful country career, has died of complications from cancer. He was 61.

Longtime manager Tony Gottlieb said Seals, diagnosed with lymphoma two years ago, died Wednesday night at his daughter’s home in Nashville.

With England Dan and John Ford Coley, Seals had hits including I’d Really Like to See You Tonight and Nights Are Forever, both in 1976. His country hits in the ‘80s and ‘90s included Bop, You Still Move Me, Love on Arrival, and a duet with Marie Osmond, Meet Me in Montana

@edgarblythe,
Had to pause a minute to listen to England Dan and Tom Ford Colley's "I'd Really Like to See You Tonight", edgar. My daughter gave me that cd so long ago and I really love it. So very sorry about England Dan.<sigh>

Thinking of Don Mclean and here he does a really nice jazz ballad. Had no idea that the man could do the genre so well. Great entonation.
