#MM The Sixties and Seventies

This week's theme on Monday Music Moves Me 
is Music from the Sixties and Seventies. 
This should be a fun walk down memory lane.

1960s
Here's a fun one that was released in November, 1968. I remember sitting in the elementary school gym waiting for an assembly to start. The teachers played some music while we waited, and this one cracked us up. It's got to be one of the stupidest songs ever written. Plus, I love the great clothes! Check out this groovy tune. "I Love My Shirt," by Trev and Simon.


1970s
My mom told me this one was about getting ice cream. I was old enough not to believe her. Afternoon Delight by Starland Vocal Band came out in 1976.



Jord Wooden Watch Giveaway
And finally, stayed tuned to my blog because I am going to be giving away a beautiful Jord watch real soon. Here's one of my favorite songs about time from Chicago, "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" It was released in 1969.

Music, Rhythm, and Rap

When young, if it wasn't rock 'n roll, it wasn't worth listening to. Although I still prefer rock, especially classic rock, I've found a few gems in other areas.

Take rap. I hate it. Rap is not music but rather some hoods yelling into a mike. Then again, I love this little jewel called, "Rapper's Delight" by Sugar Hill Gang. The full song plays fifteen minutes; however, I've included the condensed version. After six minutes of listening to this catchy beat that is ranked #248 on Rolling Stones Magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list, I dare you not to at least chair dance.

I said a hip hop the hippie the hippie
to the hip hip hop, a you don't stop
the rock it to the bang bang boogie say up jumped the boogie
to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat.


I don't have a clue what the dude means, but it's fun to listen to.  Is one supposed to bounce on a hip? Not recommended for seniors. The rapper mentions hippies but weren't they more into peace, love people now, and come together? Either way, I'll jump up and boogie. Although the above part makes no sense, other verses are crystal clear.

Have you ever went over a friends house to eat
and the food just aint no good?
I mean the macaroni's soggy the peas are mushed
and the chicken tastes like wood;
so you try to play it off like you think you can
by sayin' that you're full,
and then your friend says, "Momma, he's just being polite
he ain't finished uh uh that's bull."
So your heart starts pumpin' and you think of a lie
and you say that you already ate,
and your friend says man there's plenty of food
so you pile some more on your plate.

Here's some "music" that's got plenty of "rhythm." Take a listen and if you're old like me, it will bring back memories. 
If not, maybe you'll enjoy something new.

Musical Monday - How SWEET

 "Little Willy" by The Sweet

When I was little, I followed my older siblings everywhere; so I guess this is my song. The music is hip and I really dig the threads!

Here's another fun "Sweet" song from 1973.
