I’m sorry for not responding to your great comments but I have been a bit crippled up. Hopefully, I can write better and not fall asleep right in the middle of writing things..which I have been doing. Don't you love my Harley?
I have always been fascinated by songs where the singers can drop famous names in their songs at a rapid rate. It seems almost like tongue twisters, some more so than others. I truly have no idea how they can sing it plus remember it all. Here the 3 songs plus 1 that came into my head and which I always loved.
1. VOGUE BY MADONNA-1990
I do like Madonna even though she is looking a bit more like an old whore with way too much plastic surgeries or is that Botox or whatever other crap these famous nuts are doing to themselves. This song came out at one of the heights of her career. She constructed this song after noticing the dance style called voguing...I thought the dance style came from the song not the other way around. I just loved all the names she dropped and was able to state exactly what the stars were about, now I’m off to vogue...
2. WE DIDN’T STOP THE FIRE BY BILLY JOEL-1989
When I heard this song I was just gobsmacked at how many events and famous people Billy Joel named in this song and with so much passion. He mentions all the events that occurred between the time he was born and the date he created this song.pretty cool, eh?
3. ONE WEEK BY THE BARE-NAKED LADIES-1998
I love this iconic Canadian band that many people might know as the singers to the opening of the TV show "Big Bang Theory”. This song was written by by Ed Robertson who sings the incredibly fast lyrics of famous events and names in this song which also includes the singing vocals of Stephen Page who was part of this band for many of it famous songs.
4. THE TCHAIKOVSKY SONG AND OTHER RUSSIANS SUNG BY DANNY KAYE 1941
This was actually the first song that came into my head because Kaye just excels at these tongue twisting songs that make my eyes wide open at how well he can pronounce all these famous Russian names. Kaye was in his element when he sang this song for the theatre production of “ Lady in the Dark.” With the music by Kurt Weill and lyrics by Ira Gershwin.
Can you think of any songs like these?
