lamarca Guilty pleasures (no, not THAT kind...) (70* d) Guilty pleasures (no, not THAT kind...) 27 Oct 04


Thought this might be a fun separate thread topic, to keep it from degrading the Getaway Memories ....

What are your favorite rock/country western/disco/pop folk/punk songs for which you know ALL the words (including humming the 17-minute instrumental jam break)...you know, the ones you sing in the car when you're listening to WKRP-Classic Moldie Rock or KHCK Golden Country, etc, that you would be ashamed to let your "Purist Snob" folk friends know you know?

Here's a few of mine, culled from my vast collection of LPs sitting in boxes up in the junk room in our house...

A. I met a boy called Frank Mills on September 12th right here...

B. One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small...

C. Let me ride on the Wall of Death one more time...

D. Long, long time ago, I can still remember...

E. St. Stephen with a rose, in and out of the garden he goes...

F. When I first saw your gallery I liked the ones of ladies...

G. Rose, darling, come to me, Snake Mary's gone to bed...

H. No-one knows what it's like to be the bad man...

I. There is a young cowboy who lives on the range...

J. We-ee can never know about the day-ays to come...

K. I'll light the fire, while you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today...

L. Heeee had white horses and ladies by the score...

M. Mama, mama, forget your pies, I think they won't get cold... (from my very, very first purchased LP - anyone else recognize this atrocious song to which I actually still remember all the words?)

N. Pressed Rat and Wart Hog have closed down their shop...

O. The phone don't ring anymore, and the sun refuse to shine...

P. There's a red moon rising on the Cuyahoga River...


I could go on and on (and usually do), but it would be fun to see other folks favorites and guess our relative ages by the ones we pick!
