Jingle, Jangle, Jungle went patriotic this week since your holiday lands on a Sunday but ours is tomorrow. So here are the themes for this week and i didn't choose any classical or Broadway..wow!
A SONG WITH "RED" IN THE TITLE
A SONG WITH "WHITE" IN THE TITLE
A SONG WITH "BLUE" IN THE TITLE
1. LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD BY SAM SHAM & THE PHARAOHS-1966
Believe it or not, this was the song that came into my head and I have no idea why because, immediately after, my mind went to Red, Red Wine. I love wolves so this might be why...maybe. Oh well, this is obviously about the big bad wolf-a man, who is ready to pluck little Miss Red off the steady path of goodness and, well, you get the picture. I had no idea who created this song until I looked for it so it's pretty cool that it came out when I was a mere 2 yrs old.
2. NIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN BY THE MOODY BLUES-1967
I love The Moody Blues as much as I love ABBA and they are simply amazing to create such beautiful works, this one being their most famous and with good reason. It is so haunting, sad, mournful and exquisite. I had no idea that Justin Hayward was only 19 yrs old when he created this gem. When I was 19, I thought it was a great idea to have a shot of cognac every time I got an answer wrong in Trivial Pursuit but we shall not go there. I also just love the poetry before and after which I memorized years ago. I was so happy to have seen them when they were still all together before Ray Thomas had to retire due to health reasons and passed away in 2018, sadly.
3. DEVIL WITH A BLUE DRESS ON SUNG BY MITCH RYDER & THE DETROIT WHEELS-1966
I always thought Little Richard did this song but, that tells you how daft I am when it comes to music. I also thought the title was Devil In a Blue Dress but, I guess, the above title is more accurate. Devil in a Blue Dress is a movie with Denzel Washington and a good one too. This is such a great dance song, to me anyhoo, and can really get you pumping. I had no clue that this was originally written by Shorty Long & William "Mickey" Stevenson and performed by Long in 1964 but in a more Blues style and slower tempo. Of course, the gal is a bad apple ready to seduce the poor guy to get what she can from him. Oh well, thems the breaks:)
What can you think up?
