Ahem, Rita - I don't think I've ever actually been permitted to lead a Workshop on "Forbidden Pleasures" (if I had been, they wouldn't be forbidden, now, would they?)

Bill D. and I have had our differences of opinion about taste ("This bus is drafty and you can't deny it..."), mainly because I have yet to find a genre of music that doesn't contain at least one song or number that has redeeming social value (well, I haven't actually given rap/hip-hop a chance to prove itself yet...)

Would other folks be interested in a workshop/song swap where we sing our favorite songs from our misguided youth? (Not to mention our misguided adulthood?) In addition to Jefferson Airplane, I used to be able to sing everything on Joni Mitchell's first 6 albums, I've snuck an occasional Cowboy Junkies song into song swaps, and I'm about to leave work to go hear Richard Thompson doing his "1,000 Years of Popular Music". If there are other kindred spirits out there who are just looking for their chance to do their jugband version of "Layla", let Rita know we need a Forbidden Pleasures workshop next year.

I'll bring the whips and mayonnaise.

Mary, I think it would be a load of fun! I also used to know a lot of Joni Mitchell songs, and there were the Troggs, and Tommy Whassisface and the Somethings ("I Think We're Alone Now"), and Lulu, and "Red Rubber Ball", and stuff I've forgotten I remember. It would be sort of like singing around a campfire with a bunch of people who're just folks, not folkies and are just singing what they know.

(One of the most fun times I had camping was when I went with my office. Someone found an oldies station, and we sat around the fire singing our brains out along with the radio.)

There are some people who sniffed and said "I don't like that. It's not traditional. Did you just write it?" when Barbry Allen was sung the first time ever.

Mary, you are more trouble sometimes ..... if you get me started I will do everything from about 1962 until 1970.

Mick as he goes off tiptoing through the tulips as he sings "last Train to Clarksville" and his girlfriend sings "Yummy Yummy Yummy I've ... oops, sorry folks. Got carried away there for a minute.

Hey, a number of us sang a lot of those forbidden songs at the Getaway on Friday night. I was surprised that Elizabeth LaPrelle knew so many of them. But yes, it would be nice to have a "forbidden songs" workshop.

hummmppff-first time Barbry Allen was sung, there WEREN'T much traditional 'ceptin some Druid Madrigals and other dull stuff like Egyptian water haulin' chants... ;~)

(I truly admire folks like my wife & lamarca who can sort out all those genrés and be eclectic enough to enjoy most of 'em...especially when those ladies know so many of the very old and 'trad' stuff to swamp me!)

we have had a few other Songs of the 60's and similar 'misguided youth' workshops at past Getaways...including, maybe 22-23 years ago, a sock hop" led by sometime poster Padre. I forget what I did instead...

Oh yeah, I tell you something....

I'm sitting in the railway station, got a ticket....

Monday, Monday, so good to me .....

Hey-ey Joe, where you going with that gun your hand.....

I went down to the crossroads, got down on my knees....

G - L - O - R - I - A.....

Sloopy, let your hair down girl, let hang down on me....

And the name of the place is I like it like that ....

There is a little place beyond the tracks, the name of the place is the Sugar Shack....

I was out on a date, in my Daddy's car, we hadn't driven very far....

The eastern world, it is explodin', with violent flareups and bullets loadin'.....


Dammit, Sins, see what you got going????? I can't sleep thinking about all these lyrics.

Got to have this workshop next year.

White Bird, in a golden cage, on a winters day ....

There's a girl in my room and her face on the wall with no eyes....

Eres tu, eres tu, asi, asi, eres tu.......

Coming to me in the morning..... and the rainbow has a beard

Just walk away Renee......

The lights go down and the curtains are drawn, and when it was over it felt like a dream .... tell them, broken arrow....


Janie, see what thou hast wrought???
