In honor of Father’s Day here, Jim has given us the prompt of finding songs for Dad/Father/BBQ.

Thanks, Jim!

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful fathers! 🙂

I’ve heard a lot of Bob Rivers Christmas parody songs, and had a couple of tapes of them, a long time ago. They are pretty funny, so I was happy to find this one about cooking out on the grill, as it fits the theme today.

Most all of his fun songs are done to the tune of popular and well known songs.

There will probably be a lot of people cooking BBQ out on the grill today, including us here. 🙂

From the Wiki article:

Robert Rivers (born July 7, 1956 in Branford, Connecticut) is a retired American rock and roll radio on-air personality in the Pacific Northwest, as well as a prolific producer and songwriter of parody songs, most famous for his Christmas song parodies.[1] His album Twisted Christmas was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.[2]

Rivers’ last regular radio program, The Bob Rivers Show with Bob, Spike and Joe, was broadcast on Seattle oldies station KJR-FM until August 8, 2014, ending a 25-year run in the Seattle market.[3]

Rivers played keyboards for a cover band affiliated with the show, Spike and the Impalers,[4][5][6] until 2015.

***

“Burgers on the Grill,” by Bob Rivers, was recorded in 2003. This one is done to the tune of the Doors song, “Riders on the Storm”.

Riders On The Storm – Doors)

Burgers on the grill
Burgers on the grill
I’ve really had my fill
Of burgers on the grill
When the relatives go home
I’m stuck with chicken bones
And burgers on the grill

There’s a steak tip on the coals
It fell down through the holes
And now it’s caught on fire
Smells like a funeral pyre
I was tryin’ to get it back
But it’s turnin’ pretty black
Steak tip on the coals

Yeah!

Wiener on the foil
The skin begins to boil
I dropped it in the soil
I thought that it was spoiled
So I washed it with a hose
And fed it to Aunt Rose
Wiener on the foil

Burgers on the grill
Burgers on the grill

From the wiki article I read, it said that this album, “Rick is 21”, was the first time Ricky Nelson was now called ‘Rick’ instead of Ricky.

 

***

“My One Desire”, by Ricky Nelson, is on his album, “Rick is 21”. It was released in 1961, and I believe it was written by Dorsey Burnette.

I wanna walk with ya, talk with ya, all about love
‘Cause there’s no greater time than tonight

Gypsy Road – Song Lyric Sunday – Traveling on …

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/06/01/a-vehicle-for-music/

***

Today’s SLS prompt is travel type words, such as ‘street, avenue, road, boulevard, lane, drive’. Lots of songs to choose from! Thanks, Jim!

***

This song kind of touches on the fact that touring with a band is harder than it seems. The constant traveling, to keep up with their commitments, the loneliness of being on the road, and sometimes just wanting to go home, wears a person down. But still you do it over and over for the money and the fame. Is it worth it? Maybe…maybe not.

 

“Gypsy Road”, by Cinderella, is a single from their 1987 album, “Long Cold Winter”. It was written by Tom Keifer, and is on the Mercury label.

***

***

I used to be now I’m not what you see, Lord I try
And now it seems all those dreams have come true, but they’re passing me by
Some fast talkin’ mama for a dollar put a smile on my face
I’m drivin’ all night
I end up in the same old place

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

And who’s to care if I grow my hair to the sky
I’ll take a wish and a prayer cross my fingers ’cause I always get by
Some fast talkin’ jerk for a dollar wiped the smile off my face
I’m drivin’ all night
Just to keep the rat in the race

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

Sometimes I feel so old
Got my lights burnin’ bright
But I’m lookin’ pretty sold
Sometimes I feel so cold
So cold
Let’s go

Got to get on home
My gypsy road can’t take me home
My gypsy road can’t take me home, t-t-take me

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on p-p-pushin’

My gypsy road can’t take me home

I’ll be cruel, you’ll be kind
We’ll be bad, if you don’t mindIt’s the right time of the night

Song Lyric Sunday – Gloom, Misery, Agony

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/05/04/cinco-de-mayo/

Today’s SLS prompt words are:  agony, hurt, pain, suffer. Sounds pretty depressing, doesn’t it. But, that’s what we are looking for today. Thanks, Jim. To join in this fun weekly challenge, you can find Jim’s blog, “A Unique Title For Me”, at the above link. See other entries, too. You never know what interesting music will be posted. 🙂

***

There’s lots of sad songs out there, but the first one I thought about today is pretty funny.

Did you ever watch the TV show called, “Hee Haw”, which ran from 1969 to 1992? They had good music, funny jokes, and several skit segments each week. This one was always my favorite part. Old timer guys sitting around on a porch, drinking moonshine, and singing about their misery. Actually I liked the bloodhound dog the most. haha 🙂

This song has been recorded by several well known artists, such as Buck Owens, and every lyric notation I found said different things. The chorus was always the same, but the in between stuff was all kinds of different funny parts.

I believe it was written by Bernie Brillstein, Frank Peppiatt, and John Aylesworth.

***

Here’s what Wiki says about this:

From the Wiki article:

  • “Gloom, Despair, and Agony On Me”—Another popular sketch usually performed by four male cast members (originally—and usually—Roy Clark; Gordie Tapp; Grandpa Jones and Archie Campbell) sitting around in hillbilly garb surrounded by moonshine jugs and looking overtly miserable. The song began with the chorus, which all of them sang with each one alternating (in lip-synch) a mournful howl after each of the first three lines. The chorus went:

Gloom, despair, and agony on me-e!
Deep dark depression, excessive misery-y!
If it weren’t for bad luck I’d have no luck at all!
Gloom, despair, and agony on me-e-e!

The quartet began by singing the chorus together, followed by each quartet member reciting some humorous reason for his misery in spoken form, then (in the first several seasons) the quartet would reprise the chorus and end with all four sobbing in typical overstated manner.

***

***


GLOOM, DESPAIR AND AGONY ON ME
From the TV Show "Hee-Haw" (1969 -1992)

Buck Owens & Roy Clark


Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

We figured she was rich, loaded to the hilt
And we figured she had class like the Vanderbilts
'Cause we had heard for years how she was so well reared
How was we to know they meant the way she was built

Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

Today we have Jim, of A Unique Title For Me, asking us for songs with the subject of ‘boogie/rock/rolling stone. Thanks, Jim.

To join in this weekly fun challenge, and see other musical selections, just click the above link.

This was a bit weird for me. That’s because I post rock songs all the time, and wanted something I hadn’t posted before. So I looked and looked for rock songs. I like them all, and that is the problem…too many to choose from.

Actually, at first I thought I was supposed to find a song about rocks, real rocks…haha! I had a good one for that, “Rocky Top”, but then I figured it was supposed to be songs about rock and roll. I don’t know…

Oh well, here’s one using the rolling stone cue. It’s an old one, but I always liked it, and hadn’t heard it in a long time.

***

“Papa Was a Rolling Stone”, by the Temptations, was released as a single in 1987. It was written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong, and is on the Motown label.

***

***

It was the third of September.
That day I’ll always remember, yes I will.
‘Cause that was the day that my daddy died.
I never got a chance to see him.
Never heard nothing but bad things about him.
Mama, I’m depending on you, tell me the truth.

And Mama just hung her head and said,
“Son, Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone. “
“Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone. “

Well, well.

Hey Mama, is it true what they say,
That Papa never worked a day in his life?
And Mama, bad talk going around town
Saying that Papa had three outside children and another wife.
And that ain’t right.
Heard some talk about Papa doing some store front preaching.
Talkin about saving souls and all the time leeching.
Dealing in debt and stealing in the name of the Lord.

Mama just hung her head and said,
“Papa was a rolling stone, my son.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone. “
“Hey, Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone. “

Uh!

Hey Mama, I heard Papa call himself a jack of all trade.
Tell me is that what sent Papa to an early grave?
Folk say Papa would beg, borrow, steal to pay his bill.
Hey Mama, folk say that Papa was never much on thinking.
Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking.
Mama, I’m depending on you to tell me the truth. Mama looked up with a tear in her eye and said,
“Son, Papa was a rolling stone. (Well, well, well, well)
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone. “
“Papa was a rolling stone.
Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone. “

“I said, Papa was a rolling stone. Wherever he laid his hat was his home.
(And when he died) All he left us was alone. ”

I like this song, and have since I first heard it back in 1966. I always did like this band’s songs. This one you could say is all sweet and nice, and gentle soothing sounds. He is singing about enjoying a day out with his love, when they are caught in a summer rain shower. They waited it out under some shelter with a tin roof, and the sound it makes adds to the romantic interlude.

***

“Rain on the Roof”, by the Lovin’ Spoonful, can be found on their studio album, “Hums of the Lovin’ Spoonful”, released in 1966. It was written by John Sebastian and Zal Yanovsky, and is on the Kama Sutra label.

You and me and rain on the roof
Caught up in a summer shower
Dryin’ while it soaks the flowers
Maybe we’ll be caught for hours

Waitin’ out the sun

You and me were gabbin’ away
Dreamy conversation sittin’ in the hay
Honey, how long was I laughing in the rain with you
‘Cause I didn’t feel a drop ’til the thunder brought us to

You and me underneath the roof of tin
Pretty comfy feelin’ how the rain ain’t leakin’ in
We can sit and dry just as long as it can pour
‘Cause the way it makes you look makes me hope it rains some more

You and me and rain on the roof
Caught up in a summer shower
Dryin’ while it soaks the flowers
Maybe we’ll be caught for hours
Waitin’ out the sun

Shotgun Messiah has been a favorite band of mine for all the years since I first heard their songs. Their music is probably not to everyone’s taste, but I like it. I still have the cassette tape of the album this song is from, along with all their other albums on CD. When they all went their separate ways, the bass player/singer/songwriter, Tim Skold, became the most prominent. I have his albums, too.

Now, this song seems to be telling about a scary night while out parking in a secluded place with a date. They hear a noise, and for a moment they freeze, as in stop what they are doing to listen, and getting frightened.

You remember those Urban Legends, where something bad happens to the couple when they are out like that?

Have you ever been in a situation like this? I have. If I hear a strange noise, I freeze for a minute, too.

“Nervous”, by Shotgun Messiah, is on their early album, “Shotgun Messiah”, and was released in 1989 on the Relativity label.

Nervous Lyrics

Outta gas in the dead of night
Is it for real
Hot lust turns to stone cold fright
Say how you feelMe and my date
Down on lovers lane
Gettin’ so late
Is there something waitin’ out in the rainNervous
Tickle your spine, can’t get rid of the feelin’
You’re nervous
Freeze frame of mind ’cause you know it’s for real
And you’re nervousShut up, did you hear that sound
Is it for real
Too quiet, is there someone ’round
Say how you feelMe and my date
And we’re parked alone
Gettin’ so late
“Do you want to hear something really scary?”Nervous
Tickle your spine, can’t get rid of the feelin’
You’re nervous
Freeze frame of mind ’cause you know it’s for real
And your…
Nervous
Voices in the nite, vanish in the shadows
Have you ever heard a dream talking
Well I did, I did, I did(-Solo-)Wake me gently from this dream
Nothing’s what it seemsNervous
Tickle your spine, can’t get rid of the feelin’
You’re nervous
Freeze frame of mind ’cause you know it’s for real
And you’re…
Nervous
Tickle your spine, can’t get rid of the feelin’
Freeze frame of mind ’cause you know it’s for real
And you’re nervous

Today for SLS we are to find songs with the subject of ‘burn/fire/flame’. Thanks, Jim!

There were so many songs to choose from! I kept looking until I found this one. I hadn’t heard it before. I first saw this cover version of Ellie Goulding’s song, “Burn”, and I loved it! Then I listened to the original, and it’s great, too.

I got interested in the artists/musicians in the cover performance, and they have a lot of songs.

From Wiki:

Postmodern Jukebox, also widely known by the acronym PMJ, is a rotating musical collective founded by arranger and pianist Scott Bradlee in 2011. PMJ is known for reworking popular modern music into different vintage genres, especially early 20th century forms such as swing and jazz.

This is done in a Vintage 60s girl group fashion, featuring Robyn Adele Anderson. Their music can be found on Mud Hut Digital and Concord Records.

Note the flaming saxophone! Cool!

“Burn”, by Ellie Goulding, was released in 2013 from her album, “Halcyon Days”. It was written by Ellie Goulding, Ryan Tedder, Leona Lewis, Gary Kurstin, Noel Zancanella, and Brent Kutzle, and is on the Polydor lebel.

Verse 1]
We, we don’t have to worry ’bout nothing
‘Cause we got the fire
And we’re burning one hell of a something
They, they gonna see us from outer space
Outer space, light it up
Like we’re the stars of the human race, human race

[Chorus]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Verse 2]
We don’t wanna leave
No, we just gonna be right now, right now

And what we see, is everybody’s on the floor
Acting crazy, getting low go ’til the light’s out
Music’s on, I’m waking up
We start the fire, and we burn it up
And it’s over now, we got the love
There’s no secret now, no secret now

When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Bridge 1]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn

[Bridge 2]
We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Outro]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard

Funny Ones – Song Lyric Sunday – Radio/DJ/Record/Jukebox

For today’s SLS, Jim has given us the topic to find songs about Disc Jockey’s (DJs), Radio, Jukebox or Records. Thanks, Jim!

***

I found a couple I’d never heard of before, and are a bit different. The first one is pretty funny, with Steve Allen trying to work with a singing group called the Fat Heads, and they keep interrupting each other. It reminds me of when you’re trying to listen to a song, and the DJ keeps talking over it.

The next one is Joe Walsh, being introduced by the famous DJ Wolfman Jack. They talk a bit, then Joe Walsh sings the song, which is pretty rocking.

This little bit with Wolfman Jack, reminds me of when I used to hear him on the radio, way late into the night. I could pick up radio stations from far away, and he was a favorite to listen to.

***

“The Disc Jockey’s Theme Song,” by Steve Allen, was recorded in 1957, on the Coral label. It was written by Steve Allen. The spoken parts were by Bob Thiele.

***

Sorry, I just couldn’t find the lyrics to this one…

“The Radio Song”, by Joe Walsh, was released in 1987, from his album, “Got Any Gum?”. It was written by Joe Walsh, and is on the Warner Bros. label.

I like to listen to music

I like the way that it sounds

On the radio

I like to sit in a silent place

When no one’s around

And listen inside it

Inside the silence is a melody

Voices singing harmony

I close my eyes and listen carefully

The silence starts to get loud

It’s like your favorite station

Playing your favorite song

Just like they do on the radio

Inside the silence is a symphony

Every note there is in every key

The music tells me how it wants to be

I help it write itself down

I hear the way that would sound

It’s like your favorite station

Playing your favorite song

Just like they do on the radio

Like they do on the radio

But the radio isn’t on —

On the radio
