Here are a couple of songs from the group, America. I really like both these, but especially the first one. It’s one I can actually play a little bit on my guitar. Back when it first came out we were in Germany, and I remember listening to it and then writing a made up story about it. I have it around here somewhere. šŸ™‚

These two songs are just ones I like, because they are all about words, correct grammar, and punctuation. Being a writer, we all know these are important, and these songs present it in a fun way.

Thanks, Hugh, for hosting this fun challenge.

Here’s a couple of songs from the 90s. I don’t have any special memories about them, I just like them. I’ve only recently heard this first one, and the second one I heard when it first came out. They both have a Cajun flavor to the words and music, which really makes me want to dance…and I don’t dance! šŸ™‚ Enjoy!

It’s time for another song from the past. šŸ™‚

I’m going way back with these two. It would be surprising if anyone has ever heard them, but I always liked them. They remind me of the type of songs you’d hear in the era of the TV show, “Happy Days”.

I first heard these two songs, when I was just about 8 years old. I had received a portable record player for Christmas, I think that’s when, and a bunch of 45-rpm records. It was from my mom and dad. I have no idea why they’d chosen this record, or any of the others I had, as none of them were children’s type of records. Anyway, I liked them all, and played them a lot. Seems the lyrics were way too old for a kid to hear, especially back in the 50s, but who knows…that’s what I had, and my sister, cousin, and I liked them. We probably didn’t even pay attention to the lyrics, or even would have known what it was all about! šŸ™‚

Anyway, here’s the songs, and a photo of the actual record I’ve had all these years. (one record both sides shown)

***

The songs, “Fire Engine Baby”, and “Flirtie Gertie”, by the Jiv-a-Tones, was a single on the Feldsted label. They were released in 1958. The Jiv-a-Tones, were formed by Ric Cartey, and the members included, Guy Barber, Dean Stevens, Bill Holden, and Charlie Broome. Vocals on “Fire Engine Baby” by Bill Holden. Vocals on “Flirtie Gertie” by Dean Stevens.

Have a listen…see what you think of them! šŸ™‚
