It's strange writing these ahead of time but I am trying to be pro-active since i am unsure how i will be feeling after my surgery since I take longer to heal due to my connective tissue disorder. Jingle, Jangle, Jungle came up with 3 more great themes this week and here they are:
A SONG WITH A GIRL'S NAME IN THE TITLE
A SONG WITH THE WORD "UNDER" IN THE TITLE
A SONG WITH THE WORD "CRY" IN THE TITLE
1. BARBARA ALLEN SUNG BY ART GUNFUNKEL-1973
It is a Scottish ballad from the 16th century that took hold all over Britain and one hears it in many older English films like "A Christmas Carol". I always loved this song even though it is a sad song but it seems to have a wistful, dreamy and very pretty tune. I wanted to find a good rendition of this song and someone, long ago, who owned a classical record store, suggested this version by Art Garfunkel. I bought the CD and am so happy I did because I love Simon and Gunfunkel and always took to Garfunkel more. I think he does the best rendition.
2. UNDER THE BOARDWALK SUNG BY THE DRIFTERS-1964
This is the first song that popped into my head and I always loved it for the great vocals. It came out in 1964, my birth year, so it must be great :) This song was written by Kenny Young and Arthur Resnick (I don't know who they are but ok) and I love all the nice nuances they put into the song plus I just love the lead singer's voice, Johnny Moore.
3. CRYING SUNG BY ROY ORBISON-1961
I know it is Crying and not Cry but this still fits, I think, and it was the first song that came into my little head. It's cool that it came out in 1961 when my brother was born. I know K. D. Lang did a great homage to this song, but it will always be Roy Orbison's song which he co-wrote with Joe Melson. It is brilliant.
So any songs you can think of?
