1. Post a video of a song that makes you think about being a teenager.

“Where the Action Is”, by Paul Revere and the Raiders. Written by Steve Venet and Tommy Boyce, it was the theme song for the TV show of the same name, which ran from 1965 to 1967.

As a teen-ager at this time, I remember this show and watched it all the time. Later, the show went on tour with Paul Revere and the Raiders, plus a lot more singing stars of the day. They did come to our town, and I went to it … amazing and fun … it was the first concert I ever went to.

2. Post a video of a song that is about finding your voice.

***

This prompt is something I don’t understand, so … here’s a good song … maybe about finding your ‘voice’ as a writer.

“Paperback Writer” by the Beatles, credited to Lennon/McCartney, was released in 1966.

3. Post a video of a song that represents a “I’ll kick your ass attitude”.

***

“How Do You Like Me Now”, by Toby Keith, was co-written by him, and released in 1999.

This song is kind of funny, because the guy finally made it as a singing star, and he goes back to show the girl that snubbed him back in high school, what she missed out on.

  1. I did not know “Where The Action Is” was a Paul Revere & The Raiders song. I never assocaiated that song with any particular artist, and probably wouldn’t have guessed them!

    • I didn’t know they sang that song either, but I did find that they did. I used their version because I was a big fan of theirs. The song was actually written by Andrew Scott, Stephen Priest, Brian Connelly, and Michael Tucker. It was the most popular as recorded and sung by Freddy Cannon.

  2. Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon also did “Action” (i.e. “Where The Action Is”) and had a hit with it in ’65. I loved that show. They looked like they were having so much fun! I wanted to be there…

    • Thanks, John!
      It was my favorite show to watch, too. They had lots of the most popular singers appearing on the show. I watched another one (can’t remember when it came on) called Hullabaloo. It was a good one, too.
      I think the Freddy Cannon song is the one we remember best. 🙂
