Song Title Game

This is a very simple game done for no reason other than to get some of you visitors to sign in and say, "Hi". It starts with a song tite. The next person in line can pick any word in the previous titles and then post another song title using that word. Only rule: Do not repeat a previous song title.

Avoid: The, In, An etc. You get the idea

Sample:

Bridge Over Troubled Waters
Over The Rainbow
Don't Make Me Over
Cross Over the Bridge
Rainbow Connection

Feel free to leave a note with your song. I'll kick it off in the first comment.

Beyond The Blue Horizon.

Yeah, I'm beyond dating myself: I'm CARBON dating myself today as the only way I could slip into sleep's gear was to take two Benedryls...

Which made me wake up in 1953.

9-- I know you have more of a repertoire than I could ever amass, my musical interests are old time rock & roll for the most part! NYC wcbsfm(101.1)(before it went to Jack & now its sort of back to oldies.

coreen,

Sort of is right -- they canceled the fifties (best doowop station in NYC in years) and curtailed most of the sixties.

But it's better than Jack.

Cry For Us All

(Title song of yet another forgotten Mitch Leigh musical whose only remembered one is a monster -- Man of La Mancha. This was a disastrous version of the mid sixties hit Hogan's Goat which introduced Faye Dunaway as an actress to huge acclaim.)

Cry Me A River

and anything else by Julie London

jamie,

And Bobby Troup!

Great ex-spouses of all time has to include Jack Webb who not only hired Julie for the longrunning Emergency...

He also hired her husband Bobby Troup.

Jamie & 9,

Enjoying this more than the bashing
at c-list.

And 9, your knowledge of show business et al is providing quite
a learning opportunity over at c-list.

Jamie, you are a delight.

Me and Mrs Jones

1972, written by Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff, performed by Billy Paul.

Great game!

Jamie said...

9/11

I used to watch Emergency every week. It was decidedly a Webb show, but very good.

Favorite Webb movie is a toss up: Pete Kelly's Blues or the D. I.

Jamie said...

Hi Trave,

We got a great thing going on ...

Everybody's Talking about the Jones Boy

Jamie said...

Ooh lookie what I found on You Tube

The Jones Boy sung by the Mills Brothers but using video shots from Torchwood.

I wanted to leave Talking about Revolution by Tracy Chapman but there was an "interuptus."

9/11 survivor (sort of) said...

Jamie,

Both are engaging messes.

I like the original Dragnet movie with (I think) former kid star Ben Alexander as Joe Friday's pard. Back then Webb looked like he was Jose Ferrer's close cousin.

I loved Webb in Kramer's The Men -- he really met Brando head on and convinced. Same deal in Sunset Boulevard -- he was so believable as that fellow writer.

Pete Kelly's Blues has a lot of ambition and good music. It's still a mess. The D.I. is one of those movies you watch over and over and over again like you were 17 and in disbelief it was ever made... even if years later you start to strangely identify with it.
