“All Day and All of the Night”, by the Kinks, was released as a single from their album, “Kinks-Size” in 1964. It was written by Ray Davies, and is on the Pye and Reprise labels.

From the Songfacts article: https://www.songfacts.com/facts/the-kinks/all-day-and-all-of-the-night

During a July 12, 2006 concert at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, Ray Davies explained how the song was originally rejected by his record company because it was “too blue-collar, too working-class” and because the record execs thought the guitar sounded like a dog’s bark.

I’m not content to be with you in the daytime
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yeah, all day and nighttime yours, leave me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
Oh, come on
I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yeah, all day and nighttime yours, leave me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night-time
All day and all of the night

Now for another contrast!

This is the same song as a cover, done by The Scorpions.

This video is of course in color, but the whole thing is jazzed up with the lights and the energy displayed by the band.

In the original video of the Kinks, there are no flashing lights, no color, and really not much excitement of them singing the song. It is very plain and they barely move around the stage.

I much prefer the Scorpions!

I’ve always enjoyed watching the movie musical, “Singing in the Rain”. The details of this is below, but I have a strange connection to the star of the show, Gene Kelly.

Back when we lived in Japan, my husband was in the Army, and worked with a fellow soldier he met who was the nephew of Gene Kelly. Our families visited, and at one time they asked could I baby sit their children (a girl and a boy of elementary school age). Of course I did, as my two girls were friends with their kids anyway.

I babysit them every school day (before and after classes), and was paid well. They also bought me a bicycle so I could ride around with all the kids.

As it happens, we all lost contact with each other as the men were transferred to other military locations in the world.

***

From the Wiki article:

Singin’ in the Rain is a 1952 American musical romantic comedy film directed and choreographed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, starring Kelly, Donald O’Connor, and Debbie Reynolds, and featuring Jean Hagen, Millard Mitchell and Cyd Charisse. It offers a lighthearted depiction of Hollywood in the late 1920s, with the three stars portraying performers caught up in the transition from silent films to “talkies“.

***

“Singing in the Rain”, was released in 1952, at the Radio City Music Hall.  The story was written by Betty Comden and Adolph Green.

***

I’m singin’ in the rain
Just singin’ in the rain
What a glorious feeling
I’m happy again.
I’m laughing at clouds.
So dark up above,
The sun’s in my heart
And I’m ready for love.
Let the stormy clouds chase.
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I’ve a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singing,
Singing in the rain
Dancing in the rain
La ri la la ri la,
I’m happy again
I’m singin’ and dancing in the rain
I’m dancing and singin’ in the rain

This is a pretty cool song, I think. I like a lot of Alice Cooper’s songs. I know one of them,”School’s Out”, was used as my sister’s high school graduating class song.

I do know that he is a golfer, and see him out on the course in televised tournaments sometimes.

***

“Poison”, by Alice Cooper – from the Wiki article:

It became one of Cooper’s biggest hit singles in the United States, peaking at number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100. It performed even better in the UK by peaking at number 2 in the UK Singles Chart. “Poison” remains one of Alice Cooper’s best known songs. It is ranked by Billboard as the “91st top song of 1989“, while Ultimate Classic Rock ranked it as the “7th best Alice Cooper song”, commenting “Poison sounds like a typical ’80s pop-metal number at times, but Cooper’s intensity brings it to a whole other level.”[1] The song’s main riff was written by guitarist John McCurry, who two years earlier had used it for the John Waite track “Encircled“.

“Poison”, by Alice Cooper, was released from his album, “Trash”, in 1989. It was written by Alice Cooper, Desmond Child, and John McCurry, and is on the Epic label.

Your cruel device
Your blood, like ice
One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill
I wanna love you but I better not touch (don’t touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I’m caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace, on sweat
I hear you calling and it’s needles and pins (and pins)
I wanna hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don’t want to touch you but you’re under my skin (deep in)
I wanna kiss you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
Poison
One look, could kill

I wanna love you but I better not touch (don’t touch)

Another song I really like is this one. It works for the prompt, ‘above’.

“Send Me An Angel”

Fro the Wiki article:

The song’s biggest chart success, in the US, came in 1989, when an updated version titled “Send Me an Angel ’89” surpassed the original version from 1983. “Send Me An Angel ’89” reached a peak of No. 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the summer of 1989 in the US.[5]

“Send Me An Angel”, by Real Life, was released as a single from their album, “Heartland”, in 1983. It was written by David Sterry and Richard Zatorski, and is on the Wheatley-Curb-MCA-Intercord-Ariola labels.

Do you believe in heaven above
Do you believe in love
Don’t tell a lie don’t be false and untrue
It all comes back to you
Open fire!
On my burning heart
I’ve never been lucky in love
My defences are down
A kiss or a frown
I can’t survive on my own
If a girl walks in and carves her name in my heart
I’ll turn and run away
Everyday we’ve all been led astray
It’s hard to be lucky in love
It gets in your eyes
It’s making you cry
Don’t know what to do
Don’t know what to do
You’re looking for love
Calling heaven above
Send me an angel
Send me an angel
Right now, right now
Empty dreams can only dissapoint
In a room behind your smile
But don’t give up,
Don’t give up
You can be lucky in love
It gets in your eyes
It’s making you cry
Don’t know what to do
Don’t know what to do
You’re looking for love
Calling heaven above
Send me an angel
Send me an angel
Right now, right now.

I first heard of Amanda Marshall while seeing her on a TV talk show years ago. I think this is the song she did sing on that occasion. Later, I bought her CD and she has lots of great songs on there. One of them was also included in the soundtrack of the movie, “Tin Cup”.

I really enjoy hearing her sing, and I hope you do do. 🙂

From the Wiki article:

Elton John remarked that “Dark Horse” was a “guaranteed hit” after he mentioned that he was listening to Amanda Marshall’s album.[3]

“Dark Horse” peaked at number five on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart on the issue of March 17, 1997.[4] The single also peaked at number one on the same publication’s Adult Contemporary chart two weeks later.[5] It was the twenty-seventh most successful song of 1997 in Canada and the third-most successful adult contemporary hit of the year in the country.[6][7] The song also charted within the lower reaches on the charts of Australia and Germany, making it to numbers 70 and 93 respectively.[8][9] Despite its low peak on the German chart, it stayed in the top 100 for six nonconsecutive weeks.[9]

“Dark Horse”, by Amanda Marshall, was her single released from her album, “Amanda Marshall”, in 1995. It was written by Amanda Marshall, David Tyson, and Dean McTaggart, and is on the Epic label.

Indian summer
Abeline
You were new in town, I was nineteen
And sparks flew
They called us crazy behind our backs
“Romantic fools, ” we just let them laugh
Because we knew
It may be a long shot
We may get lonely down the line
But love knows no reason
And I won’t let ’em make up my mind
My money’s riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is saying it’s the lucky one
And it’s true color’s gonna shine through someday
If we let this, let this dark horse run
The stars are brighter in the desert sky
No need to wonder or justify
Where this will lead
I wear your locket, our picture’s inside
Inscription says ‘the joy’s in the ride’
And I believe
That something so sacred
Is something worth this kind of fight
Cause love knows no patience
You can’t please everyone all the time
My money’s riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is saying it’s the lucky one
And it’s true color’s gonna shine through someday
If we let this, let this dark horse run
So rare
So sweet
Together baby, I know
We can
Disappear
Be free
My money’s riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is saying it’s the lucky one
And it’s true color’s gonna shine through someday
If we let this, let this dark horse run
My money’s riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is saying it’s the lucky one
And it’s true color’s gonna shine through someday
If we let this, let this dark horse run
Indian summer
Abeline
You were new in town, I was nineteen
Yeah, baby
In the summertime
Yeah, yeah
Ooh, yeah

The song I finally chose is, “Love Me Do”, by The Beatles. This was their debut single (flip side “P.S. I Love You).

Fun Facts to know: https://www.buzznet.com/2012/10/fun-facts-about-beatles-love/?view-all&firefox=1&Exc_D_LessThanPoint002_p1=1

  • John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote this in 1958, when John was 17 and Paul was 16. They made time for songwriting by skipping school. They had written songs before, but this was the first one they liked enough to record.
  • McCartney wrote this about his girlfriend at the time, Iris Caldwell.
  • This was the Beatles first single. It was released in England by Parlophone Records, but it took a while before they could get a record company to distribute it in America. The Beatles wanted Capitol Records to release it in the US, but they refused, figuring it would flop. It went to Tollie Records, who released it in America during Beatlemania, about a year after it was released in England.
  • Before they recorded this, Lennon always sang the lead vocal, but when his harmonica part was added, McCartney had to sing it because Lennon’s mouth was full of harmonica. Paul claims that you can hear the fear in his voice at the audition.
  • When John’s Aunt Mimi heard this song, she said to him “Well, if you think you’re going to make a fortune with that, you’ve got another thing coming.”

***

Love Me Do” is the Beatles‘ first single, backed by “P.S. I Love You” and released on 5 October 1962. When the single was originally released in the United Kingdom, it peaked at number seventeen; in 1982 it was re-promoted (not re-issued, retaining the same catalogue number) and reached number four. In the United States the single was a number one hit in 1964.

The Wiki article has so much information about this song I couldn’t and didn’t want to just copy it all. If you’d like to read it, this is where to find it:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_Me_Do

“Love Me Do”, by The Beatles, was released in 1962 (UK), and 1964 (US), and can be found on the albums, “Please, Please Me”,, and “Introducing the Beatles”. The labels are Parlophone, Capitol, & Tollie.  It was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

From the Wiki article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Different_Drum

Different Drum” is a song written by American singer-songwriter Michael Nesmith in 1964. It was first recorded by the northern bluegrass band the Greenbriar Boys and included on their 1966 album, Better Late than Never!. Nesmith offered the song to the Monkees, but the producers of the TV show, who had wide control over the group’s musical output early on, turned him down.[2]

The song became popular in 1967 when recorded by the Stone Poneys featuring Linda Ronstadt, who took their version of “Different Drum” to #12 on the Cash Box Top 100, #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #16 in Record World magazine. The song did best in New Zealand, where it reached #5.[3] In 1972, Nesmith recorded his own version of his song. “Different Drum” has since been covered by other artists.

The song is best known for the 1967 version credited to the Stone Poneys[6] featuring a vocal performance by a young and up-and-coming singer named Linda Ronstadt. The song was Ronstadt’s first hit single, reaching number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as number 12 on the Cash Box magazine singles chart. (It went to number 1 in the Los Angeles market and number 6 in Detroit.) [7]

Ronstadt’s version flips the gender references in Nesmith’s original lyrics, replacing “girl” with “boy” when describing her lover, but still referring to him being “pretty”

“Different Drum”, by the Stone Poneys featuring Linda Ronstadt, was released in 1967. It was written by Mike Nesmith, and is on the Capitol label.

And here is this very early live performance in which she sings beautifully, but seems the band is awful!

You and I travel to the beat of a different drum
Oh can’t you tell by the way I run
Every time you make eyes at me

You cry and moan and say it will work out
But honey child I’ve got my doubts
You can’t see the forest for the trees

Oh don’t get me wrong
It’s not that I knock it
It’s just that I am not in the market
For a boy who wants to love only me

Yes, and I ain’t saying you ain’t pretty
All I’m saying, I’m not ready
For any person, place or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

So goodbye I’ll be leaving
I see no sense in this crying and grieving
We’ll both live a lot longer
If you live without me

Oh don’t get me wrong
It’s not that I knock it
It’s just that I am not in the market
For a boy who wants to love only me

All I’m saying, I’m not ready
For any person, place or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

So goodbye I’ll be leaving
I see no sense in this crying and grieving
We’ll both live a lot longer
If you live without me

From the Wiki article:

The single stayed at number one for one week and spent a total of twenty weeks on the country music charts.

Donald Ray Williams (May 27, 1939 – September 8, 2017) was an American country singer, songwriter, and 2010 inductee to the Country Music Hall of Fame. He began his solo career in 1971, singing popular ballads and amassing 17 number one country hits. His straightforward yet smooth bass-baritone voice, soft tones, and imposing build earned him the nickname: “Gentle Giant” of country music.[1] He was also noted for his “velvet voice”.

***

“Lord I Hope This Day Is Good”, by Don Williams, was released as a single from his album, Especially Yours”, in 1981. It was written by Dave Hanner, and is on the MCA label.

***

Lord, I hope this day is good
I’m feelin’ empty and misunderstood
I should be thankful, Lord, I know I should
But Lord I hope this day is good

Lord, have you forgotten me
I’ve been prayin’ to you faithfully
I’m not sayin’ I’m a righteous man
But Lord I hope you understand

I don’t need fortune and I don’t need fame
Send down the thunder, Lord, send down the rain
But when you’re plannin’ just how it will be
Plan a good day for me

Lord, I hope this day is good
I’m feelin’ empty and misunderstood
I should be thankful, Lord, I know I should
But Lord I hope this day is good

You’ve been the King since the dawn of time
All that I’m askin’ is a little less crime
It might be hard for the devil to do
But it would be easy for you

I’m feelin’ empty and misunderstood
I should be thankful, Lord, I know I should
But Lord I hope this day is good
