From: GUEST,Roger the skiffler

I know you all like to post to lists (Best, worst etc.) So here's one:
What tune is buzzin' round your head today? I always seem to have a tune in there, often, annoyingly, one half-remembered then I aske you all to help me with.[I'm NOT asking for help with these examples]
Last week it was the Kweskin Jug band version of "I'm satisfied with my gal"; earlier this week it alternated between Rick Fielding's "Margins of my neighbourhood" and Frank Hamilton's "Michigan Water". Today I woke up to Dave van Ronk's "If you were a friend of mine" and this afternoon this was supplanted by Johnny Silvo and Diz Disley's version of "CC Rider". All these at work or in the car or doing chores without any music on.
Can't post more, must be time for my medication in the NYCFTTTS, or...am I not alone?

Excellent thread for a Friday, Roger! This morning I woke up 'Carrickfergus' going around in my head. I bit of wishful thinking, perhaps? Whereas yesterday, it was 'Put Your Little Foot' -- go figure.

Hi Roger, here is the tune buzzing around my head.........
Oh where, oh where could my Charles be,
Oh where, oh where has he gone,
I use to enjoy reading Seed's postings,
And now I sing my sad song.

I miss Uncle Charles,

..had to return something this morning to a woman named Martha. Consequently, Martha My Dear from the Beatles' "White Album" has been rattling around in that otherwise infinitely vacuous space. Hell, it's Friday and I'm already looking forward to a rewarding sit-down at the kitchen table with my box and some pre-recorded tunes to play along with. Happy weekend to one and all.

My tune of the third milennium is still "the Pinch of Snuff (AKA THe four seasons)".

Dang, it's a hard tune on the box, but I'm peeling back the layers slowly.

Incidentally, talking of good friends we've lost, where's Garg these days? Perhaps the healing circle worked, and he got better. Hope so.

This reminds me of a game my sister and I play when we go to Irish Week at Augusta. Whenever we run into each other, we point and say, "Name that tune!" The other has to name the tune in their head at that moment. Right now, my tune is "The Britches with the Stitches."

Jeez, thanks Roger. It's an honour to be buzzin' round your head. My head is filled with the tune "Wabash Blues" (done by the Delmore Bros.) this mornin' and how I may be able to adapt it tin a new project. Great song!

I can't seem to get a song by the Austin Lounge Lizards called "Teenage Immigrant Welfare Mothers On Drugs" out of my head. It came to mind while I was reading the "Rant" thread about the recent shooting in Michigan. An unrelated song is an uptempo bluegrass style version of "Nearer My God To Thee" that my group is working on. Tonight my wife and I are going to Dallas to see an exibit of articles off of the Titanic. I'll probabally think of the song there as well. Even tho the band probabally never played it as they sank. Who knows?

Squirreling (as this annoying phenomenomenom is called) in my head this week - all courtesy of a git at work who bought a new mobile phone that plays about 90 tunes: Eine Kleine nachtmusik, the Ride of the Valkyries (my theme tune, should I ever get that famous, still looking for the tin wunderbra), Scot Joplin's Entertainer, and the bloody Warsaw Concerto. Thanks to Radio 2, I have the haunting refrain "here's a quarter, call someone who cares", and from Spike Milligans' war diaries, the bloody Warsaw Concerto and "Lay thar piss tub darn" (Italian wartime pronunciation of lay that pistol down).

The worst moment came when I started singing 'What a friend we have in Jesus' in the filing range, sleazy blues style complete with Fats Domino bah-bah bah bah-bah bah baaaaah riffs after each 8 bars.....

Help, nurse, the screens!!!

Lately,because of the Tom Rush threads "Urge for Going" is at the top of the list.But also some things we been playing at my church.
"Trading my Sorrows" and "Your Love is Extravagant" by Darrell Evans

PS."tin wunderbra"? I'd love to see it.

From: wysiwyg

I'M SATISFIED

(Music is a kinda jazzy western swing vamp, lead singer with backup/echo from the rest of the quartet... It's the Gaither Vocal Band, sounding like Manhattan Transfer.)

I'm satisfied (satisfied)
Yes satisfied (with Jesus).
Said He would be my comfort (yeah!),
Said He would be my guide, well, well--
I looked at my hands-- my hands were new,
I looked at my feet, and they were too!
Ever since that wonderful day
My soul's been satsified.

We're satisfied (so satisfied)
Yes satisfied (with Jesus!)
Said He would be my comfort (yeah!),
Said He would be my guide, well, well...


And I've lost the tape with the rest of the verses, and it goes around and around because the tune actually does too and doesn't actually end! My step daughter and I can fall into this any time, any place, with hand/foot motions, the whole thing. It lurks just below consciousness whenever we're together.

Liz, I'm glad to know there's someone else out there who likes the Warsaw Concerto by Richard Addinsell. That was one of the pieces that got me back into classic music when I was 15--even thought it technically isn't classical music! Ha ha, you a Travis Tritt fan too?

Well for me its been a song that starts

And each and every single day I promise I will kneel and pray

The chorus is

A ship to the shore,a key to the door
A place on the last bus going home
A ship to the shore, a key to the door
A candle in the widow and the welcome

But I'd dearly love to know what its called! Anyone.
