THE MUSIC OF THE NOTES
« on: January 13, 2005, 11:59:06 PM »

Well, you've read the notes, you've had mercurial mood swings during the notes, and now it is time for you to post until the mercurial musical cows come home.

I will have to ponder the 60's song question...many come to mind, but I must double-check dates before I post, lest I appear ignorant and foolish.  I'm famously bad when it comes to remembering things like dates and names and where I parked my car at the airport.  

Goodnight

I'm not the least bit tired.

So many sixties songs - no way to list all of my faves:

Johnny Get Angry, Sealed With a Kiss, End of the World, Lollipops and Roses, Go Away, Little Girl, Michelle, the Bacharach/David songs, Autumn, In My Life, She Cried, A Taste of Honey, Downtown, I Know a Place and all the other Petula/Tony Hatch/Jackie Trent songs, especially Don't Sleep in the Subway - I'll stop and let others have some fun.

I'm too tired to think of the 60's. "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" is now running through my head for some reason. So, I'll start with that.

WUSSBURGER.

Of course we must include all of A Tramp Shining by Jimmy Webb, sung by Richard Harris.

I just noticed I was called a WUSSBURGER -- and then stupidly quoted it and said "Love that!"
I don't love being called a WUSSBURGER - nor am I a WUSSBURGER. I've now been up since 5:30 this morning. if that's a WUSSBURGER, then you're a pickle. (It's all I could think of suddenly.) A kosher dill.

I should be tired..I should be asleep.  But I am clearly neither of those things at the moment.  I am no Wussburger.

I love Shuffle Play.  I've had this little iPod on, on and off, for a good deal of today, and I'm not even half-way through all the songs in there.  Marvy.

Perhaps I'll go out dancing.  Perhaps I'll put on my toe shoes and walk on point.  Perhaps I'll eat a ham chunk.

It's taken me an entire hour to read all of yesterday's posts! I can barely keep my eyes open and I must sleep.  I will definitely have to think about 60s songs...later.  Afer I wake up.  Good night from this Wussburger with a capital Wuss!

My senility had reared its ugly head once again - for some reason as I was writing the notes I thought it was Thursday, hence the topic instead of What's in our CD DVD players.  We'll do that tomorrow.  Of course, it was Thursday when I actually wrote the notes.  It's SO confusing.

I remembered why I can't sleep.  I had a Starbucks frozen mocha-fudge bar whilst watching CSI this evening.  It was just enough caffeine to keep me from drifting off now.  I am trying some warm mlik...perhaps that will help.

Good morning, all!  I'm listening to JEEPERS CREEPERS, which has several wonderful 60s songs I had disregarded ("Look for a Star") or never heard ("The Faithful Heart").

The 60s is one of my favorite periods, through highschool and college, so let's see what my vague mind recalls:
 MOVIES:  Moon River
              Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte
              Goldfinger
              Moon River
              Charade
              The Look of Love
              The Windmills of my Mind
              Help
              Ticket to Ride
              A Hard Day's Night
              Mrs Robinson
             
THEATRE:  Promises, Promises
               I'll Never Fall in Love Again
               All of CAMELOT
               All of ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER
               All of SHE LOVES ME
               Aquarius
               Hair
               Easy to Be Hard
               Frank Mills
               All of JACQUES BREL IS ALIVE AND WELL . . .
               All of MARAT/SADE
               If I Gave You (HIGH SPIRITS)
               Don't Rain on My Parade

FOLK:       Blowin' in the Wind
               Where Have All the Flowers Gone?
               Can't Help But wonder Where I'm Bound
               The Last Thing on My Mind
               Mr Tambourine Man
               Early Mornin' Rain
               If You Could Read My Mind
               The Circle Game
               Both Sides Now
             
OTHER:     The Boxer
               Here There and Everywhere
               Eleanor Rigby
               Feelin' Groovy
               Do You Know the Way to San Jose
               Are You There With Another Girl

I'll see later posts and think, how did I miss that one?  I think it's a Barnes & Noble block this morning!

Just a quick note to say hello. I must wash my oatmeal bowl and make some photocopies before beginning the workday. I will ponder the question of the day and while I'm doing that I will listen to Michael Feinstein Remember (the Irving Berlin album) and one of his first albums (if not the first) Pure Gershwin and then Johnny Mathis This Heart of Mine.

We will be on LI for the long weekend. Don't know if we will watch anything.

I'm way behind (a reverse Seesaw reference) - Ben's finished his oatmeal and I'm just starting mine.

If I may sneak in a question for BK. I was just over at Amazon, looking at Liz Callaway's ANYWHERE I WANDER CD. Do you know why the cover has changed?

Here's the new one:

Here's the new one:



DRDIT, I lodged a complaint with the new Fynsworth Alley powers-that-be at the time of the switch, since all recording credits (including mine!) on the back of the original cover had been removed.  Of course at the time it was my vanity that was pissed off, but I've come to believe it was an attempt to remove BK from the cover.

JEWISH THIGHS Alert!  Saturday night was chosen over Friday because DRPennyO has two shows on Saturday, and it was felt that a social night was better for Saturday so that she and DRJose would be in fine fettle for the Saturday shows.  If DRs wanted to come in for the weekend, there are other things to see and do on Friday night.

That was the rerelease version of the cd. It also has an additional song that I believe BK had nothing to do with.

Thanks DRs Elmore and Michael. I much prefer the original cover, and agree that the entire production and orchestrations in particular are outstanding. In fact, the reason I was checking out the CD is because I was playing it over the holidays. A friend who was visiting was so moved by the recording that I gave it to her. I may check eBay - I want the old cover, with the proper credits.
