Let’s be musical and enjoy all the tunes we love. I think Jingle, Jangle, Jungle really takes in this way of thinking. I love this weekly challenge and enjoy the themes. Here are this week’s themes
A SONG THAT MENTIONS A PLANET IN THE TITLE
A SONG THAT MENTIONS SOMETHING YOU WEAR IN THE TITLE
A SONG THAT MENTIONS AN ANIMAL IN THE TITLE
1. VENUS BY BANANARAMA-1984
I enjoyed the 80s so much. I was in university, drank like a fish, had many fun antics and danced almost every weekend to the music that really sounds like it comes from the 80s. This is one of these songs and I love dancing to it. Little did I know it is originally from "Shocking Blue" in 1969.
2. TOP HAT, WHITE TIE AND TAILS SUNG BY FRED ASTAIRE-1935
Fred Astaire is synonymous with white tie and tails and a great top hat. He could dance like no one could (Gene Kelly is his match but totally different style as Gene is more for jeans and a t-shirt) and this routine just epitomizes his style. This song was written by Irving Berlin for the film "Top Hat" and seems made for Fred Astaire. I know all of you own at least 2 suits with tails.
3. THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT SUNG BY THE TOKENS-1961
My brother played this to my parents and me and My mom and I really loved this song. I love the way this man controls his voice and can have this range of voice. It was sad when he passed away. When I looked up this song, I had no idea about the battle for the rights to this song which was originally written by, South African, Solomon Linda but it was called "Mbube". Ahh, the behind the scenes battles.
Let’s hear which songs you choose.
