Forgive me that I am late here, I have been feeling quite lost and down due to my job loss. The good news is that hubby's first operation, yesterday, for the kidney stone, went well. They went up his, well...you know, and like Mark Hamill destroying the death star, the doc laser blasted the big kidney stone. Now, he is resting which is good. On to music...Jingle, Jangle, Jungle has 3 more themes and here they are..
A SONG WITH ANGEL IN THE TITLE
A SONG WITH DOG IN THE TITLE
A SONG WITH STAND IN THE TITLE
1. ANGEL OF THE MORNING SUNG BY JUICE NEWTON-1981
When this song came out, I just fell in love with it and would listen to it every chance I got. I was already driving by then so, if it came on the radio, I had to listen to it even if I was late for school (big whoop). I had no idea this song was written in 1967 by Chip Taylor after he heard "Ruby Tuesday" by The Rolling Stones. It has been recorded by many others over the years but this is still my favourite version.
2. HOW MUCH IS THAT DOGGIE IN THE WINDOW SUNG BY PATTI PAGE-1953
This popped into my head because of my daddy. Daddy loved this song and would look at me and sing the title and then do a couple of barks followed by laughter. I laughed when I was a kid, when I was a teenager I smiled but had to roll my eyes only later to sing the same part to my dad when he had his brain tumour operation. We both would smile after. This song was written by Bob Merrill in 1952 with Patti Page making it famous in 1953. Later, the rights were sold to the Humane Society and Patti Page sang the same song but in a sad bent due to the horrible puppy mills that are everywhere. I prefer this sweet version.
3. STAND BY ME BY BEN E. KING-1961
This song came out in 1961. the year my brother was born and, I can say, without question, he is standing by me. He sent me flowers last week which deeply touched my heart and they still look beautiful. This song was written by Ben along with Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. There have been tons of others who have recorded their own versions, but my heart belongs to this original.
Finally, I got this out and sorry for the delay. Which 3 would you pick?
