Jingle, Jangle, Jungle hosts this weekly song challenge where she provides 3 topics/themes and one has to come up with 3 songs that cover this challenge. The 3 topics this week are:
1. Song About An Angel
2. A Song With Bad Grammar In The Title
3. A Number
1. SEND ME AN ANGEL-REAL LIFE-1983
There are so many angel songs I could have gone with, but I am trying to choose songs that pop right into my head and this was the first. Annoyingly, it won't pop out of my head.
2. AIN'T MISBAVIN'-SUNG BY BILLIE HOLIDAY- ORIGINAL 1929 BY FATS WALLER
I do like this song that was originally composed by Fats Waller, Harry Brooks and Andy Razaf(lyrics). I know there was a musical done in the 1970's with the same name and the song was sung by Nell Carter. This song was sung by many greats over the years.
3. 867-5309-SUNG BY TOMMY TUTONE-1981
How well, I remember this song when it came out and it was played, ad nauseam, in many dance bars/discos, I went to. The song is actually supposed to be a telephone # and sung..8675, 309 which is fine in song but I really hate it when someone tells me their phone # saying the first 4 digits then a slight pause followed by 3. Hey! It is not that way! You say the first 3 digits then the 4!! Geeez. I have a had a few clients, not from other countries but born here, who decide to screw things up and state their phone # in this most irritating way. This song caused quite the stir because many people started calling this # up and disrupting the lives of many people. I think this may be one of the reasons(correct me if I am wrong) why all #'s in films and movies start as 555.
Can you think of any tunes?
