  • Pooch1: "Sniper" is a noun.  "Snip" is a verb.  Not funny to be unknowing of the difference in how the two words are treated.

"Just Plain Old Music"

Oldiesmann

Here's a cool patriotic tune I discovered recently. It was quite popular in 1942 and almost completely forgotten after that save for a couple recordings in the 1960s.

"This Is Worth Fighting For" by Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WpChyE2-Kg

This was also recorded by Vaughn Monroe, Kate Smith and The Ink Spots among others. Those in the UK might be familiar with a version recorded by Leslie Hutchison (aka "Hutch").

Oldiesmann

Here's a great song I just recently found.

"Leavin's Not The Only Way To Go" by Roger Miller: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLiHGlMRzrw

This was written by Roger Miller for the 1985 musica Big River. He recorded it himself in 1986, and it's also been recorded by Glenn Campbell (1987), Merle Haggard (2005) and most recently by lesser-known country duos The Stellas and Lennon & Maisey for a Roger Miller tribute album that was released in late August.

Marilyne

Oldiesmann - I enjoyed listening to, “This Is Worth Fighting For”, by Jimmy Dorsey.  One of many patriotic songs that were popular during World War II.   Also there were lots of cute novelty songs, love songs, and songs full of hope for the future.  Two of my favorites, that are especially beautiful and hopeful, are “There’ll Be Bluebirds Over The White Cliffs of Dover”, and “We’ll Meet Again”, don’ t know where, don’t know when, but I’m sure we’ll meet again some sunny day."

Heard this one at a country restaurant earlier today.

"Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" by George Jones and His Smoky Mountain Boys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PytG-uA_p6g

This was originally done by Roy Acuff and the Smoky Mountain Boys back in 1947 and has since been recorded by dozens of artists. This version was recorded in the early 70s but was unreleased until last year.

Oldiesmann

Found this yesterday. Hard to believe none of these people are around anymore.

MarsGal

Just love it! What a gem, Oldiesman.

Here's a classic from 1957. "There'll Always Be A Christmas" by The Ames Brothers


Vanilla-Jackie

Michael ( Oldiesmann ) is this where you escape to when you want some peace from the grief you are getting from us  over our forum changes...if so, a good choice ;D

...yes " there will always be a Christmas.." that is guaranteed..Thank you..

" A human heart can never grow old if it takes a lively interest in the pairing of birds, the reproduction of flowers, and the changing tints of autumn leaves..."

"There'll always be a Christmas" - lovely song and it was good to hear the Ames Brothers again.  I think at least two of them have died. 

Thanks for posting that song.

Mary Ann

Marilyne

Here's a song that some of us remember.  A good one to commemorate December 7, 1941 . . . "A day that will live in infamy"

Mary Ann

Thanks, Marilyne, we had a lot of good patriotic songs at that time.

Here's a lively one I stumbled across earlier...

"Christmas Comes But Once A Year (Christmas In Carrick)" by The Barra MacNeils


This was written by Seamus McGrath and originally recorded by Irish folk group The Clancy Brothers in 1969. This version was released in 1999. The Barra MacNeils are a Canadian celtic music group from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

SCFSue

Thanks, Oldiesman.   Very "Irish" and reminiscent of trips to Ireland--Cheerful and harmonic!

Daryl Dragon, the "Captain" of "The Captain and Tennille," has died.

Rick, I had read that about Daryl Dragon, then I read another headline that she was going to be 78.  I think I read a while ago that they had divorced.  I didn't read the article about her, so I don't know if he was mentioned or not, but I thought it rather odd that her age would be highlighted at the time of his death. 

Mary Ann

RAMMEL

I read that they were divorced a few years ago but remained friends. The post I saw said she was with him in his final days. I always liked their music.

Rick, I often read only the headline which is how I knew about both of them.  I'm glad they remained friends because I hate to read about bitter divorces.

Haven't been by here for a while.  I just discovered this good one on my Beegie Adair station on Pandora.  If you like a "blusey piano" you will like this one  George Cable trio playing Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ru3sxF4KxHU

Al and I always liked listening to The Captain and Tennille...good music.

If you are still a fan of the 40's, early 50's dance band, perhaps your local PBS station features a show, "Swinging down the Lane" which features those tunes with a bit of biographical background about the bands and the vocalists.  My local PBS station features this on Saturday evenings and I like to get up and dance (by myself) when my favorites are playing.  Check it out on your PBS station!

SCF Sue

Marilyne

Hello Sue - Yes, I've listened to Swingin' Down the Lane, for many years. It's a great radio program. It's no longer on my PBS station, but it can be heard on other stations that you can access and listen to on your computer.  Another good one that you can listen to on your computer, is  Swing Street Radio.  Go here, and click on one of the  icons at the bottom of the page.  Most of you have Windows Media or Quicktime., or iTunes.  I have that station playing  on my computer as background  music, during the day.  Right now playing Vaughn Monroe, "Racing with the Moon".

maryc

Sue,Glad to hear I'm not the only one who danced to the "oldies". My Al would come into the kitchen where I was when one of the good oldies was playing and we would do a turn or two around our small kitchen.   So now when one of those special tunes plays I do the same myself.  Those are sweet memories.  A friend sent us an anniversary card several years ago and the picture was a couple dancing to the radio, he in his work clothes and she in a "housedress" obviously not models for Cosmo or Vogue.  I've saved that one!
Marilyn,Vaughan Monroe was very big on my favourites list back in the '40s.  Such good music.  Remember Ballerina?  
If you enjoy smooth instrumental jazz, you might like a station of Beegie Adair and another of David Huntsinger and Friends.  They play all old favorites.

Here's a forgotten gem from the 70s.

"They Don't Make 'Em Like That Anymore" by Reunion


Reunion was a studio group featuring singer Joey Lavine on lead vocals. Joey was a member of a bunch of different projects in the 60s, most notably on several songs by Ohio Express. This was the "B" side of the hit "Life Is A Rock" and is a reminiscence of classic movies, with lots of movie clips thrown in.

Oldiesmann

A fun rock-and-roll version of the classic "Peter Cottontail" song that I found earlier. I can't find much info about this singer but he appears to have been from somewhere in New York and was possibly involved in a doo-wop group called The Capitols prior to this. He also released a couple of singles with a group called The Eddy Jacobs Experience in 1969/1970.


Oldiesmann

The end of the school year is almost here for many students here in the states, so of course I have to listen to this classic even though I'm not in school anymore. I used to hear this all the time on the local oldies station when I was a kid.
