30-Day Song Challenge: Classic!

Day 16, Dear Reader, and you’ll have to forgive me; I have a stinking head cold and I’m not at my sparkling best…

*/Swallows… Ugh, my doze is bocked an’ my neck is sore…*

*Dat’s right, Kicky, da show muss go on… /sneezes…*

Dolphin toilet roll holder

*Fanks…*

… But never fear, Cade is here, and with a little assistance from chums Poppy Sweet Pea and Legs, we’ll have the ‘classic favourite’ songs challenge licked…

^Chattanooga Choo Choo – Glenn Miller^

Day 16: songs that are classic favourites

Cade’s first song pick…

Classics, eh? I guess that means Led Zeppelin, Frank Sinatra, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, Beatles, Lynard Skynard, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Tom Jones…popular stuff. Stuff that pretty much everyone likes. That’s what makes a classic, a classic. Popular.

^ZZ Top – Pearl Necklace^

Roob’s first song pick…

What Cade said… And Elvis…

^Junkie XL, Elvis Presley – A Little Less Conversation (Elvis vs JXL)^

Cade’s second song pick…

Saw some video this morning from that White Island eruption that occurred a few weeks ago. The news personality was blabbing non-stop so I have no idea what was really going on in the video. Other than the obvious, I wonder if they are gonna ban people from visiting the island.

 

^Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel – Lust For Death^

Roob’s second song pick…

*Dow datsa sneeze, Kicky… /wipes doze…*

^Billy Joel”We Didn’t Start The Fire”w/History Videos(BEST ON YOUTUBE)^

Cade’s third song pick…

I’ve already included shitloads of music that I personally would consider “classic”. Staples. Musical signposts on the audible highway(s). Some roads are more traveled than others, and I personally pretty much listen to the same bullshit as everyone else. For the most part. A few musical oddities here and there.

^THE CRYSTAL METHOD – BUSY CHILD^

Roob’s third song pick…

My last classic song reminds me of my sister. Thirty years ago, Thoughtful Man and I had karaoke at the evening reception of our wedding. Juju sang this to us and everybody else. I have never laughed so hard in all my days…

*If you can fined da disc wid our wedding video on it, Kicky, I’ll put it up on YouToob…*

The final word from Roob Clicky…

^Jackie Wilson – Reet petite^

*******

Speaking of karaoke, Dear Reader, the challenge tomorrow is for ‘songs you’d sing a duet with someone on karaoke’. Not that I am in any fit state to sing right now…

*Uncannily accurate, Kicky…*

…So until then, have a Song…

^Barry Islands in the Stream (Full Version) – Red Nose Day song 2009^

  1. I prolly shoulda included this one. I used to listen to this on 45 over and over till someone would eventually storm into my room and tell me to turn it off. lolz

    And, I’m pretty sure it would be considered “a classic”.

    ^ABC-Jackson 5 LYRICS^

      1. Here’s another I pondered including, but thought maybe it was too punny. (even tho its definitely a classic)

        Did listen to this song a lot as a kid tho. The blending always fascinated the hell out of me. The contrast(s) helped to make song creation, music building and musical arrangement make a lot more sense.

        ^Mason Williams – Classical Gas – ORIGINAL STEREO VERSION^
