A to Z BLOG CHALLENGE 2016 – LETTER E 4bd62ad9-ea74-4273-967b-7c426c911c61 IMG_2342

Today we have the letter E. I had trouble finding something for this letter. There’s lots of words I could have used to write about, but couldn’t find any historical 60s and 70s happenings that started with that letter. I thought about eggs, but the chickens didn’t go for that one (I wonder why?). Then, there’s some dinosaurs that start with E names, and you know, chickens are closely related to the dinosaurs (really), but they didn’t like that either. What about ectoplasm? Well, they sure didn’t want that one, because it’s too scary to think about (not for me!). So, what I’m left with at this time of day, (can I procrastinate longer?) is a couple of songs. Here they are…do you remember these?

E is for…”Everything is Beautiful”

“Everything is Beautiful” is a song that was written, produced, and performed by Ray Stevens. Released in 1970, it remained on the charts, as number one for two weeks. In 1971, the song won two Grammy awards. This song was a bit different from his usual type of songs. Most of his work consisted of humorous/novelty songs, such as “Ahab the Arab”, “Guitarzan”, and “The Streak”.

E is for…The Eagles

The Eagles are my favorite band/group. I listen to their songs pretty much every day, from the CD, “Eagles – The Very Best Of”.

The Eagles are an American rock band, that was formed by Glenn Frye, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner, in 1971. Having numerous number one hits, and winning six Grammy awards, has resulted in them being one of the most successful acts of the 70s. They continued to perform and tour, up until the recent death of their founder, Glenn Frey, (January 18, 2016). It is unknown if they will continue, at this time.
