Here we are again, with Manic Monday! This is where we get a song title/video prompt, and we use it somehow in our post. It’s fun trying to come up with something each week. To join in, and see other entries, just click the above link for details.

The prompt this time was, “Summertime Blues”.

I’m a day late, so posting Manic Monday on Tuesday. It took me forever to figure out the music video thing, and how to put it in a post. Something has changed, and I don’t know if it was me, or the youtube videos or what, but I spent way too long on trying to get it to work. Then, I couldn’t find much information on this song, so spent another long time researching, until I came up with a little bit about it. So, it was so late, and Monday was almost over. I said to heck with it, I’ll do it tomorrow, and now tomorrow is today. 🙂

I’m not sure about the summertime blues part of the thing we are to write about. Does it mean you’re sad and blue in the summer? Does it mean you have blue skies? We don’t live by the sea, so I can’t write about blue ocean waves. That would be nice, though. We have lots of blue skies here. We also have very colorful sunrises and sunsets. Except yesterday, it rained all day, and will rain some more today. So the skies are gray, not blue.

Well, enough about all that. It seems in this song I chose, he is singing about love, and lost love, in the summer time. It’s sort of a sad song, but funny the way he sings it. Do you remember it?

This song is the first one I thought of, as it has those words in the lyrics.

“In the Summertime”, also known as, “You Don’t Want My Love”, by Roger Miller, was released and performed by Roger Miller, in 1960. It was published by Sony/ATV Tree Publishing.

Thanks for the fun challenge, Sandi!

Today, for Manic Monday # 2, we have the word prompt, ‘Imagine’. Sandi used the song, “Imgine”, by John Lennon, to get us started thinking about the prompt!

What would it be like, if we had no imagination. I believe it would be a dull world indeed. 🙂

***

First, I thought of the TV show, “The Twilight Zone”. I always liked it, because it was a bit creepy, and presented some wonderful little stories of regular people, having an especially weird day. My kind of show! I tried thinking of the opening words to the show, and of course the music that is so identifiable. I thought it started out…’Imagine, if you will…’, but then I looked it up, and here’s one of the beginning narrations (there were several versions), and I believe the creator of the show, Rod Serling, also said the words to the quote. This is from the Wikiquote page article. https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/The_Twilight_Zone_(1959_TV_series)

You are traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. Your next stop, the Twilight Zone!

The Twilight Zone (19591965) is an American television series created by Rod Serling. The original series ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959 to 1964 and remains in syndication to this day.

Next, I thought about this song, by the Turtles, because it has the word imagine in the lyrics.

***

“Happy Together”, by the Turtles, was released in 1967, from the album, “Happy Together”. It is on the White Whale label, and was written by Alan Gordon & Garry Bonner.

Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it’s only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together

I can’t see me lovin’ nobody but you
For all my life
When you’re with me, baby the skies’ll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

I can’t see me lovin’ nobody but you
For all my life
When you’re with me, baby the skies’ll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We’re happy together
So happy together
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together (ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba)
