The prompt today is a bit different. We have to find some song that didn’t reach the # 1 spot on the charts. I think this one I chose should have, but it only came close … at # 2. (I’m just going by the US charts such as Billboard).

“Gloria”, is a song I really like a lot. I’ve heard it a lot on the radio, too. To me it tells about a girl who is trying to decide if her thoughts are her own, or maybe just a dream or fantasy, or is she really hearing voices in her head.  … Or … Maybe she’s a spy who is programmed to follow this guy, and she has an implanted microphone in her head where she hears the voices of her programmers telling her what to do and think. ??

***

There is a lot more information on this song that is interesting at the link below.

From a Wiki article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloria_(Umberto_Tozzi_song)

Gloria” (Italian pronunciation: [ˈɡlɔːrja]) is a 1979 love song written and composed in Italian by Umberto Tozzi and Giancarlo Bigazzi, and afterwards translated to English by Jonathan King. A 1982 cover version by American singer Laura Branigan peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 and has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Weeks at No. 2: three
Peak Date: Nov. 27, 1982

This was in the U. S. charts. It did reach number one in Canada and Australia.

***

“Gloria”, by Laura Branigan, was released from her album, “Branigan”, in 1982. It was written by Umberto Tozzi, Giancarlo Bigazzi, ad Trevor Veitch, and Laura Brannigan (she co-wrote some lyrics on her cover of this song). It is on the Atlantic label.

***

Gloria, you’re always on the run now
Running after somebody, you gotta get him somehow
I think you’ve got to slow down before you start to blow it
I think you’re headed for a breakdown, so be careful not to show it
You really don’t remember, was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?
Gloria, don’t you think you’re fallin’?
If everybody wants you, why isn’t anybody callin’?
You don’t have to answer
Leave them hangin’ on the line, oh oh oh, calling Gloria
Gloria (Gloria), I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria) that you’ve been living under (Gloria)
But you really don’t remember, was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?
A ha ha, a ha ha, Gloria, how’s it gonna go down?
Will you meet him on the main line, or will you catch him on the rebound?
Will you marry for the money, take a lover in the afternoon?
Feel your innocence slipping away, don’t believe it’s comin’ back soon
And you really don’t remember, was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?
Gloria, don’t you think you’re fallin’?
If everybody wants you, why isn’t anybody callin’?
You don’t have to answer
Leave them hangin’ on the line, oh-oh-oh, calling Gloria
Gloria (Gloria), I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria) that you’ve been living under (Gloria)
But you really don’t remember, was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

I almost couldn’t find a song using these prompt words. Nothing came to mind. I did a short search and found this one, though. I do remember hearing it before, and I do like most Aerosmith songs.

I never paid attention to the lyrics before, as I just like the tune and the chorus. It seems like a pretty sad, giving up kind of song, but by the end something changes, and the message I guess you’d say is whatever troubles you find, there is always hope and light forthcoming.

From a Wiki article:

Amazing” is a power ballad performed by American hard rock band Aerosmith. Don Henley lends his vocals, shadowing lead singer Steven Tyler in parts of this song. It is written by Steven Tyler, with assistance from the professional songwriter and former bandmate Richie Supa. It tells about his troubled life and drug abuse after the band broke up. It peaked at number 24 on the US Billboard Hot 100, number three on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart, number nine on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40. The song was also successful abroad, peaking at number two in Iceland, number four in Canada, number five in Norway, and the top 20 in the Netherlands and Switzerland.

***

“Amazing”, by Aerosmith, is a single from their 1993 album, “Get a Grip”. It was written by Steven Tyler and Richie Supa, and is on the Geffen label.

Here’s a pretty good song I’d never heard before.. It’s interesting because it kind of tells a story of a group of friends who decide to go have a party at a local lake. It’s night time and they probably have some drinks and drugs. Anyway they get high, and think they see spirits or angels dancing on the lake water. Or could be telling how you and your friends are free spirits having fun when they are young. Or who knows what this song means. Could be none of that, but it’s a good song.

***

From a Wiki article:

Manfred Mann’s Earth Band covered “Spirit in the Night” for their album Nightingales and Bombers, with the title “Spirits in the Night” on the European album and single releases, but “Spirit in the Night” on the U.S. and Canadian albums and singles. The Manfred Mann version differs from Springsteen’s version mostly in its arrangement, relying heavily on keyboards and using different harmonies in the chorus. Billboard compared Manfred Mann’s treatment to ELO.[10] Cash Box said that it has “a more r&b-oriented formula than the original version while retaining a faithful recreation of the setting, a party in the night away from the city.”

“Spirits In The Night”, by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band can be found on their 1975 album, “Nightingales & Bombers”. It was written by Bruce Springsteen, who recorded it in 1972. It is on the Bronze label.

“Spirits In The Night”

Crazy Janey and her mission man
Were back in the alley trading hands
Along came Wild Billy with his friend Gee Man
All duded up for Saturday night
Billy slammed on his coaster brakes, said
Anybody wanna go to Greasy Lake
It’s a mile down on the dark side of Route 88
I got a bottle of rosé let’s try it
We’ll pick up Hazy Davey and Killer Joe and
I’ll take you all out to where the gypsy angels go
They’re built like light and they dance like
Spirits in the night, all night
Oh you don’t know what they can do to you
Spirits in the night, all night
In the night, all night
Stand right up and let them shoot through youWild Billy was a crazy cat
And he shook some dust out of his coon skin cap
He said try some of this it’ll show you where you’re at
Or at least it’ll help you to feel it
By the time we made it up to Greasy Lake
My head was out the window
Janey’s fingers were in the cake
I think I really dug her, I was too loose to fake
I said I’m hurt she said Honey let’s heal it
And we danced all night to a soul fairy band
And she kissed me just right
Like only a lonely angel can
She felt so nice, just as soft as a
Spirit in the night, all night
Janey don’t know what she do to you
Spirits in the night, all night
In the night, all night
Stand right up and let her shoot through meSpirits in the night, in the night
Spirits in the night, all night
Spirits in the night, in the night
Spirits in the night, all nightHow the night was bright and the stars threw light
On Billy and Davey dancing in the Moonlight
Down near the water in a stoned mud fight
Killer Joe passed out on the lawn
Hazy Davey got really hurt
He ran into the lake in just his socks and a shirt
Me and Crazy Janey making love in the dirt
Singing our birthday songs
Janey said it was time to go, so we closed our eyes
And said goodbye to gypsy angel row
Felt so right together we moved like
Spirits in the night, all night
Oh you don’t know what they can do to you
Spirits in the night, all night
All night, all night
Stand right up and let them shoot through you
Spirits in the night, all night
Oh you don’t know what they can do to you
Spirits in the night, all night
Spirits in the night
Spirits in the night

This song is one I remember hearing, but had forgotten about. It doesn’t exactly say any of the prompt words suggested, but I feel the whole tone is one of ‘regret’. It seems the person portrayed in the lyrics is regretting the things that did or didn’t happen in his romance, and therefore he lost the one he loved.

From a Wiki article:

According to music critic Richie Unterberger, while the lyrics tell a story of romantic rejection, “I’m a Loser” is one of the first Beatles compositions that “goes beyond young love,” including “the hypocrisy of keeping up a happy face when your world’s falling down”.[2]

“I’m a Loser”, by the Beatles was released as a single from their 1964 album, “Beatles For Sale”. It was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and is on the Parlophone lable.

***

I’m a loser
I’m a loser
And I’m not what I appear to be
Of all the love I have won, and have lost
There is one love I should never have crossed
She was a girl in a million my friend
I should have known she would win in the end
I’m a loser
And I lost someone who’s near to me
I’m a loser
And I’m not what I appear to be
Although I laugh and I act like a clown
Beneath this mask I am wearing a frown
My tears are falling like rain from the sky
Is it for her or myself that I cry?
I’m a loser
And I lost someone who’s near to me
I’m a loser
And I’m not what I appear to be
What have I done to deserve such a fate?
I realize I have left it too late
And so it’s true pride comes before a fall
I’m telling you so that you won’t lose all
I’m a loser
And I lost someone who’s near to me
I’m a loser
And I’m not what I appear to be

This song is the first one I thought of. It’s one of my favorites from this group. I liked all their songs, and this one I pretty much could, and can sing all the lyrics without looking, since I listened to it so much back then. The song is telling a story of looking at a faded photograph, and all the memories that it brings back, of better days.

I was sad to hear of the passing of Jani Lane in 2011. He had a wonderful voice, and songwriting abilities. He, and his band, Warrant, were popular in the ‘glam metal’ genre. It would have been great to see how they evolved in later years, had it not been for his struggle with alcohol and drugs.

***

“Heaven”, by Warrant, was released as a single from the album, “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich”, in 1988. It was written by Jani Lane, and is on the Columbia label.

***

***

I’ve got a picture of your house
And you’re standing by the door.
It’s black and white and faded,
And it’s looking pretty worn.
See the factory that I worked
Silhouetted in the back.
The memories are gray but man they’re really coming back.
I don’t need to be the king of the world
As long as i’m the hero of this little girl
Heaven isn’t too far away
Closer to it everyday
No matter what your friends might say
How I love the way you move
And the sparkle in your eyes
There’s a color deep inside them
Like blue suburban skys
When i come home late at night
And you’re in bed asleep
I wrap my arms around you
So I can feel you breathe
I dont need to be a superman
As long as you will always be my biggest fan
Heaven isn’t too far away
Closer to it everyday (Ah, ah)
No matter what your friends might say
We’ll find our way, yeah
Now the lights are going out,
Along the boulevard
Memories come rushing back and makes it pretty hard
I’ve got nowhere left to go
And no one really cares
I don’t know what to do
But I’m never giving up on you.
Heaven isn’t too far away
Closer to it every day
Ohhhh ohhh
No matter what your friends say
I know we’re gonna find a way
Heaven
Whoah, oohh, ohhh
Whoah, oohh, ohhh
Heaven
It’s not too far away
It’s not too far away
It’s not too far away
It’s not too far away
It’s not too far away

“Silver Threads and Golden Needles” is a good country classic song, and I remember it from way back. So far this morning I’ve listened to a lot of different recording artists playing this one and like them all. Linda Ronstadt has a few and they are all a little bit different, and one with the Eagles on stage. See it here

***

From a Wiki article:

Silver Threads and Golden Needles” is a song written by Dick Reynolds and Jack Rhodes.[1] It was first recorded by Wanda Jackson in 1956. The original lyrics, as performed by Jackson, contain a verse not usually included in later versions, which also often differed in other minor details.

Skeeter Davis recorded a version in 1962 after the Springfields hit for an album track; Davis’s version was released as a single by RCA in several international markets.

And, it has been recorded many times by many other artists over the years, including Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Linda Ronstadt, the Grateful Dead, and the Cowsills.

I don’t want your lonely mansion
With a tear in every room.
All I want’s the love you promised
Beneath the haloed moon.
But you think I should be happy
With your money and your name
And hide myself in sorrow
While you play your cheating game.
Silver threads and golden needles
Cannot mend this heart of mine.
And I dare not drown my sorrow
In the warm glow of your wine.
You can’t buy my love with money
Cause I never was that kind.
Silver threads and golden needles
Cannot mend this heart of mine.

Silver threads and golden needles
Cannot mend this heart of mine.
And I dare not drown my sorrow
In the warm glow of your wine.

This is the first song I thought of today, and I’ve always really liked it. I’d never really knew the lyrics except the repeating chorus, but now reading them through makes me like the song even more.

***

From a Wiki article:

The song became the band’s first top 10 single in the United States, reaching number 9,[3] and helped boost public awareness of the band in the U.S.

***

From a Songfacts article:

Jeff Lynne revealed during an interview with Uncle Joe Benson on the Ultimate Classic Rock Nights radio show that he wrote the song to prove a point to his dad. He explained that they were arguing about something when his father said, “That’s the trouble with your tunes… They’ve got no bloody tune!'”

So Lynne said to himself, I’ll show you a tune then, and wrote “Can’t Get It Out Of My Head,” “just to show him I could write a tune!”

“Can’t Get It Out Of My Head”, by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), was released as a single from their 1974 album, “Eldorado”. It was written by Jeff Lynne, and is on the Warner Bros & United Artists label.

Midnight on the water
I saw the ocean’s daughter
Walking on a wave she came
Staring as she called my name
And I can’t get it out of my head
No I can’t get it out of my head
Now my old world is gone for dead
‘Cause I can’t get it out of my head no, no
Breakdown on the shoreline
Can’t move, it’s an ebb tide
Morning don’t get here tonight
Searching for her silver light
And I can’t get it out of my head
No I can’t get it out of my head
Now my old world is gone for dead
‘Cause I can’t get it out of my head, no, no
Bank job in the city
Robin Hood and William Tell and Ivanhoe and Lancelot
They don’t envy me, yeah
Sitting ’til the sun goes down
In dreams the world keeps going ’round and ’round
And I can’t get it out of my head
No I can’t get it out of my head
Now my old world is gone for dead

This song is one I remember well from way back then. Probably heard it on the radio. It’s so catchy and cute! It’s about a teen girl talking on the phone to her friend about her new boyfriend. He’s a bit unusual in the kind of clothes he wears, but she sure does like him. 🙂

***

“Pink Shoelaces”, by Dodi Stevens can be found on her 1959 album of the same name. It was written by Mickie Grant, and is on the Crystallete label.

Now I’ve got a guy and his name is Dooley
He’s my guy and I love him truly
He’s not good lookin’, heaven knows
But I’m wild about his crazy clothes
He wears tan shoes with pink shoe laces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
He wears tan shoes with pink shoe laces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band
He takes me deep-sea fishing in a submarine
He gonna drive-in movies in a limousine
He’s got a whirly-birdy and a 12-foot yacht
Ah, but that’s a not all he’s got
Hes got tan shoes with pink shoe laces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
He wears tan shoes with pink shoe laces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band
Now Dooley had a feelin’ we were goin’ to war
So he went out and enlisted in a fightin’ corps
But he landed in the brig for raisin’ such a storm
When they tried to put ’em in a uniform
He wanted tan shoes with pink shoe laces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
He wanted tan shoes with pink shoe laces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band
Now one day, Dooley started feelin’ sick
And he decided that he better make his will out quick
He said, “Just before the angels come to carry me
I want it down in writin’ how to bury me”
I wearin’ tan shoes with pink shoe laces
A polka dot vest and man, oh, man
He gave me tan shoes with pink shoe laces
And a big Panama with a purple hat band
And a big Panama with a purple hat band!

Old song or newer song, that was the question for me. There were so many I could think of.

I went with this one, because I like it a lot, and the fun of shopping at a thrift shop is something I do all the time. So I can relate to the song and the video.

Caution – there are some bad words

***

I read that the video was filmed in several thrift shops in the Seattle area.

The song illustrates Macklemore’s interest in buying cheap clothing from thrift shops, disdaining designer labels and trends. (from the Wiki article)

***

“Thrift Shop”, by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, featuring Wanz, was released from their album, “The Heist”, in 2012. It was written by Ben Haggerty and Ryan Lewis.

Hey Macklemore? Can we go thrift shopping?

This is fucking awesome
Nah walk up to the club like, what up, I got a big cock
I’m just pumped, just bought some shit from the thrift shop (oh)
Ice on the fringe, it’s so damn frosty
The people like, “Damn! That’s a cold ass honkey”
Rollin’ in, hella deep, headin’ to the mezzanine
Dressed in all pink, ‘cept my gator shoes, those are green
Draped in a leopard mink, girls standin’ next to me
Probably shoulda washed this, smells like R. Kelly’s sheets
(Piss)
But shit, it was ninety-nine cents
(Bag it) coppin’ it, washin’ it
‘Bout to go and get some compliments
Passin’ up on those moccasins someone else’s been walkin’ in them
Bummy and grungy, fuck it man, I am stuntin’ and flossin’ and
And savin’ my money and I’m hella happy that’s a bargain, bitch
I’ma take your grandpa’s style, I’ma take your grandpa’s style
No for real ask your grandpa can I have his hand-me-downs?
(Thank you) velour jumpsuit and some house slippers
Dookie brown leather jacket that I found diggin’
They had a broken keyboard, I bought a broken keyboard
I bought a skeet blanket, and then I bought a kneeboard
Hello, hello, my ace man, my mellow
John Wayne ain’t got nothing on my fringe game, hell no
I could take some Pro Wings, make them cool, sell those
The sneaker heads would be like “Aw, he got the Velcros”
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I, I, I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I, I, I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome
What you know about rockin’ a wolf on your noggin?
What you knowin’ about wearin’ a fur fox skin?
I’m digging, I’m digging, I’m searching right through that luggage
One man’s trash, that’s another man’s come up
Thank your grandad for donating that plaid button-up shirt
‘Cause right now I’m up in her’ stuntin’
I’m at the Goodwill, you can find me in the bins
I’m that, I’m that sucker searchin’ in that section , mens
Your grammy, your aunty, your momma, your mammy
I’ll take those flannel zebra jammies, second-hand, I rock that motherfucker
The built-in onesie with the socks on that motherfucker
I hit the party and they stop in that motherfucker
They be like, “Oh, that Gucci, that’s hella tight”
I’m like, “Yo that’s fifty dollars for a t-shirt”
Limited edition, let’s do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a t-shirt, that’s just some ignorant bitch (shit)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (shit)
I call that getting tricked by a business
That shirt’s hella dope
And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don’t
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Trying to get girls from a brand? Then you hella won’t
Then you hella won’t
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I, I, I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome
I wear your grandad’s clothes
I look incredible
I’m in this big ass coat
From that thrift shop down the road
I wear your grandad’s clothes (damn right)
I look incredible (oh, c’mon man)
I’m in this big ass coat (big ass coat)
From that thrift shop down the road (let’s go)
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket

This is fucking awesome
Is that your grandma’s coat?

I’ve always liked this song, and it was the first one I thought of today.

From a Wiki article:

This version peaked for three weeks in the United States at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in December 1967.[2][3][4] It became the Miracles highest charting popular single since “Shop Around“. In this song, guitarists Eddie Willis and Robert White came up with their own guitar licks and riffs for this song based on a chord chart that was given to them by Robinson (this is a classic example of the creativity the Funk Brothers brought to the table during the recording sessions they participated in at the Snake Pit). Regular Miracles guitarist Marv Tarplin was also present on the song.[5]

The song also topped the Billboard Best Selling R&B Singles chart[6][7] and was a million-selling hit for The Miracles, their sixth overall.[8] The song was also a top 30 hit in the UK in 1967, reaching No. 27.

“I Second That Emotion”
(with The Miracles)

Maybe you’ll wanna give me kisses sweet
But only for one night and no repeat
And maybe you’ll go away and never call
And a taste of honey’s worse than none at allOh little girl, in that case I don’t want no part
I do believe that, that would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like lovin’ me
If you got the notion
I second that emotionSo, if you feel like givin’ me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotionOoh

Maybe you think that love would tie you down
And you don’t have the time to hang around
Maybe you think that love was made for fools
And so it makes you wise to break the rules

Oh little girl
In that case I don’t want no part
I do believe that, that would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like lovin’ me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion

So, if you feel like givin’ me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotion

Ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh

Oh little girl, In that case I don’t want no part
I do believe that, that would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like lovin’ me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion

So, if you feel like givin’ me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotion
Oh, little girl
I second that emotion
[FADES] – Ooh little girl I second that emotion
