Ah, quite the easy one today! I popped a CD of The Clancy Brothers with Tommy Makem into the car yesterday. Easy And Slow isn’t a song that is about much, but it has such a lovely wistful sound that I could listen to it for hours in a loop. My dad had The Clancy Bros on vinyl, so they are a huge part of my childhood. Irish folk can tease me all they like – a good trad tune makes me feel good in ways nothing else can.
“And what’s it to any man whether or no
Whether I’m easy or whether I’m true
As I lifted her petticoat easy and slow
And I tied up me sleeve for to buckle her shoe”
The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Over at the Frankenstein Place (There’s a Light)
Well, there goes any theory about my earworms relating to what I’m thinking or worried about. Can’t correlate this to anything at all. First day of new job today!
Cat Stevens, The Wind.
I think this was in a movie I watched recently. Or it was another one off the same Greatest Hits CD of his I own. In any case, this is the one my brain played for me while I did dishes waiting for the coffee to brew this morning.
My sister and I started to like Cat because his music was featured in one of our favourite movies ever, Harold and Maude. If you’ve never seen it, change that as soon as possible!
Haven’t had or done one of these in a while! I’m experimenting here, if it doesn’t work then try back, I have no clue how to do this.
Robert Earl Keane, Merry Christmas from the Family.
A little funny and also a little sad, somehow… also very redneck and very true. Makes my hubby get all emotional…
Hahahah! The BeeGees, ‘Tragedy’!
NOT due to any lingering worries over my show in a few hours. There’s going to be a stupid TV show aired in a few days wherein ‘slebs’ talk about their favourite BeeGees songs. What a totally pointless show! TV over here can be brutal at times, good thing I’m not an addict. Anyhoo, the ad for the show came on last night, with appropriate music, and Tragedy is the one that stuck in my grey matter.
Back to my coffee!
Yes, We Have no Bananas. I do not know nor care who it is by.
Help me….help meeeeee…
I had to Google this one:
“” “How About You” is often titled from the lyrics that occur before this, “I like New York in June.” It’s from the movie musical Babes on Broadway (1941) and has music by Burton Lane and lyrics by Ralph Freed.
The song has been recorded by Tommy Dorsey, Judy Garland and Frank Sinatra. “”
No clue why it’s in my head. You shouldn’t hear songs you don’t really even know…
Steve Nicks, Leather and Lace.
And what a hard time this song is having at driving out my dream. I’ve said before that only very violent dreams are ‘nightmares’ to me. Wow, this one was. One minute I’m in a snowy field, admiring the reflection of trees in a lake. The next, a man is pulling his entire digestive system out through his mouth, hand over fist, and the intestines took a really long, messy time to come out. I don’t know if I’ve ever managed to look away until it was over in a dream before. The sounds didn’t stop, though. Ewww.
The Easybeats, Friday on my Mind.
No idea why. I really only have the little bit that goes ‘Monday, I’ve got Friday on my mind’ playing over n over in a loop.
Duran Duran, Notorious.
I watched Donnie Darko on Sunday, Notorious is the song that ‘Sparkle Motion’ does the dance routine to.
