This is a fun prompt! I like pets and animals of all kinds. Problem is, there are so many great songs to choose from. I went with this one because I just happened to remember it, and I hadn’t heard it in a long time. I’ve liked a lot of the Everly Brothers songs over the years. This video is an updated one from I believe it said 1983, at a live performance of theirs. There was an old black & white one from way back when, but it was a little blurry. There are lots of kinds of birds mentioned, too.

***

From the Wiki article:

Bird Dog” is a song written by Boudleaux Bryant and recorded by the Everly Brothers.[1] It was released in 1958 and was a #1 hit on the Billboard Country Chart.[2] The song also hit number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 as well as peaking at number two for three weeks on the R&B charts.[3]

The song deals with the singer’s dismay that a boy by the name of Johnny is trying to take his girlfriend away. The singer calls him a bird dog as a result of his behavior.

The musical structure is relatively unusual in that it has a 12 bar blues stanza and an 8 bar blues chorus.

“Bird Dog”, by the Everly Brothers was released from their album, “The Best of the Everly Brothers”, in 1958. It was written by Boudleaux Bryant, and is on the Cadence label.

Johnny is the joker (he’s a bird)
A very funny joker (he’s a bird)
But when he jokes my honey (he’s a dog)
His jokin’ ain’t so funny (what a dog)
Johnny is the joker that’s been tryin’ to steal my baby (he’s a bird dog)

Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
He sings the sweetest love song (you ever heard)
But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
To me it’s just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
Johnny wants to fly away and puppy love my baby (he’s a bird dog)

[Chorus]
Hey bird dog, get away from my quail
Hey bird dog, you’re on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey dove alone
Hey bird dog, get away from my chick
Hey bird dog, you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own

Johnny kissed the teacher (he’s a bird)
He tip-toed up to reach her (he’s a bird)
Well, he’s the teachers pet now (he’s a dog)
What he wants he can get now (what a dog)
He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby (he’s a bird dog)

Honeycomb” is a popular song written by Bob Merrill in 1954. The best-selling version was recorded by Jimmie Rodgers and charted at number one on the Billboard Top 100 in 1957.[1]

***

Well it’s a darn good life
And it’s kinda funny
How the Lord made the bee
And the bee made the honey
And the honeybee lookin’ for a home
And they called it honeycomb
And they roamed the world
And they gathered all
Of the honeycomb into one sweet ball
And the honeycomb from a million trips
Made my baby’s lips
Oh, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o’ hair and a piece o’ bone
And made a walkin’ talkin’ Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb
And the Lord said now that I made a bee
I’m gonna look all around for a green, green tree
And He made a little tree and I guess you heard
Oh, then well he made a little bird
And they waited all around until the end of Spring
Gettin’ every note that the birdies sing
And they put ’em all into one sweet tome
For my Honeycomb
Oh, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o’ hair and a piece o’ bone
And made a walkin’ talkin’ Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb
And the Lord said now that I made a bird
I’m gonna look all round for a little ol’ word
That sounds about sweet like “turtledove”
And I guess I’m gonna call it “love”
And He roamed the world lookin’ everywhere
Gettin’ love from here, love from there
And He put it all in a little ol’ part
Of my baby’s heart
Oh, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank o’ hair and a piece o’ bone
And made a walkin’ talkin’ Honeycomb
Well, Honeycomb, won’t you be my baby
Well, Honeycomb, be my own
What a darn good life
When you got a wife like Honeycomb

This song seems to be about drug use and overdosing, and dying, and being revived. It is disputed by those there of how all this happened.

The lyrics also mention other things that get your adrenaline going for a thrill, these being fast cars, or motorcycle racing, skydiving, a beautiful woman, or even playing their music on stage. Even getting chased by cops, and getting into all kinds of trouble could be a high for a thrill seeker.

This is one of the songs from the 1939 movie, “The Wizard of Oz”. I’ve liked this movie for years, and I remember when it only came on TV once a year.

***

An interesting fact from the Wiki article:

Nearly all of the Munchkin voices were dubbed in by uncredited voice actors, who sang in their normal voices at a specific tempo, and the recordings were electronically pitched up to create the Munchkin “voices” that the audience hears during playback

***

***

***

“Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” is the name of the song sung by the Munchkins in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz after the Wicked Witch of the East is crushed by Dorothy Gale‘s house.

Lyrics

Munchkins:
Ding-dong! The Witch is dead
Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
Ding-dong! The Wicked Witch is dead
Wake up you sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed
Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead
She’s gone where the goblins go
Below, below, below
Yo-ho, let’s open up and sing and ring the bells out
Ding-dong’s the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low
Let them know the Wicked Witch is dead!

Mayor:
As mayor of the Munchkin City
In the county of the land of Oz
I welcome you most regally

Judge:
But we’ve got to verify it legally
To see

Mayor:
To see

Judge:
If she

Mayor:
If she

Judge:
Is morally, ethically

Munchkin 1:
Spiritually, physically

Munchkin 2:
Positively, absolutely

Munchkin Men:
Undeniably and reliably dead

Coroner:
As Coroner, I thoroughly examined her
And she’s not only merely dead
She’s really most sincerely dead

Mayor:
Then this is a day of independence for all the munchkins
And their descendants
Yes, let the joyous news be spread
The wicked old witch at last is dead

Munchkins:
Ding-dong the witch is dead
Which old witch, the wicked witch
Ding-dong the wicked witch is dead
Wake up you sleepyhead
Rub your eyes, get out of bed
Wake up the wicked witch is dead
She’s gone where the goblins go
Below, below, below
Yo-ho, let’s open up and sing and ring the bells out
Ding Dong’s the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low
Let them know the Wicked Witch is dead

This is a fun song, I think. It’s about the relationship between a guy and a girl, and how the guy can never make up his mind. When it gets to their wedding day, he has to answer Yes or No! 🙂

***

From a Wiki article:

Perry filmed a performance of a version of the song with puppet character Elmo from Sesame Street, which was intended to teach children about antonyms. The clip was originally scheduled to run on the 41st-season premiere of the educational children’s program on September 27, 2010, however the performance, which was uploaded to YouTube earlier, garnered controversy over the amount of cleavage Perry had on display in the video. Before the scheduled airing, Sesame Workshop announced that after controversy over the clip, “We have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers. Katy Perry fans will still be able to view the video on YouTube.”[40] Perry mocked the controversy shortly afterwards in a skit during her appearance on Saturday Night Live as a musical guest, wearing an Elmo-themed shirt which showed large amounts of cleavage.[41]

***

“Hot N Cold”, by Katy Perry was released from her 2008 album, “One of the Boys”. It was written by Katy Perry, Lukasz Goffwald, and Max Martin.

[Verse 1]
You change your mind like a girl changes clothes
Yeah, you PMS like a bitch; I would know
And you overthink, always speak cryptically
I should know that you’re no good for me

[Chorus]
‘Cause you’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes, then you’re no
You’re in, then you’re out
You’re up, then you’re down
You’re wrong when it’s right
It’s black and it’s white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

(You) You don’t really wanna stay, no
(You) But you don’t really wanna go, oh
You’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes, then you’re no
You’re in, then you’re out
You’re up, then you’re down

[Verse 2]
We used to be just like twins, so in sync
The same energy, now’s a dead battery
Used to laugh (Used to laugh) ’bout nothing (‘Bout nothing)
Now you’re plain (Now you’re plain) boring (Boring)
I should know (I should know) that you’re not gonna change

[Chorus]
‘Cause you’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes, then you’re no
You’re in, then you’re out
You’re up, then you’re down
You’re wrong when it’s right
It’s black and it’s white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

(You) You don’t really wanna stay, no
(You) But you don’t really wanna go, oh
You’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes, then you’re no
You’re in, then you’re out
You’re up, then you’re down

[Bridge]
Someone call the doctor
Got a case of a love bipolar
Stuck on a roller coaster
Can’t get off this ride

You change your mind like a girl changes clothes

[Chorus]
‘Cause you’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes, then you’re no
You’re in, then you’re out
You’re up, then you’re down
You’re wrong when it’s right
It’s black and it’s white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up
You’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes, then you’re no
You’re in, then you’re out
You’re up, then you’re down
You’re wrong when it’s right
It’s black and it’s white

Herman’s Hermits had some really catchy songs over the years, and I like most all of them. I don’t remember seeing their movie, but I probably did at one time.

***

Here’s the Wiki article about the movie:

Hold On! is a 1966 musical film directed by Arthur Lubin and starring Peter Noone, Shelley Fabares, Herbert Anderson, and Sue Ane Langdon. The film features performances by Herman’s Hermits and stars the band as fictionalized versions of themselves. The soundtrack was released as an album, also called Hold On!.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hold_On!_(album)

“Hold On”, by Herman’s Hermits, was released in 1966, for the movie they made of the same name. It is on the MGM (US/Canada), and Columbia (UK) labels.

***

Hold on, hold on

You’ve got a girl who really loves you
(You’ve got a girl who really cares)
She’ll do anything you ask her to
Yet you treat her wrong
Oh, you just string her along
Brother, if I were in your shoes

I would hold on, hold on, hold on tight
And make the whole world know she’s mine
I would hold on, hold on, with all my might
A love like hers is very hard to find

She does her best to make you happy
(She always does her very best)
You do your best to make her blue
Buddy, you’ve got it made
But you’d rather go and play
I know one thing for sure, if I were you

I would hold on, hold on, hold on tight
And make the whole world know she’s mine
I would hold on, hold on, with all my might
A love like hers is very hard to find

She’s always there each time you need her
(Each time you need her she is there)
She gives her love so willingly
But you just don’t care
You know that she’ll be there
How I wish she’d felt that way about me

I would hold on, hold on, hold on tight
And make the whole world know she’s mine
I would hold on, hold on, with all my might
A love like hers is very hard to find

Hold on, hold on

Memories…

I know I’ve featured this song a time or two on the blog, but it’s one of my favorite songs. To me it seems to speak to the tragedy of Alzheimer’s, in that many memories are lost, but at times a glimmer of those memories may flash back to you. Also, that things may be different, yet there is always a new beginning when we can make new memories.

All that is just my opinion on this song. I couldn’t find any specifics about it, but if you want to read more about this Danish rock band, here is the Wiki article:

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

“The Bliss”, by Volbeat, was released in 2016, from the album, “Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie”. It’s written by Michael Poulsen.

Memory, your lamp light is burning holes
Recover the damage, bring it all home
Follow the bliss just like summer song

A voice that is endless, bring it all home
Oh what it is feels like a summer song
I’ll stay here forever, her face I rememberPresenting a new beginning
Forever you and I
And when the morning gets lonely
And life is out of sight

I’ve heard and liked a lot of songs by Avril Lavigne, but this is a new one for me. I like it a lot, because she shows so much emotion in the video. I know we’ve all had the experience of missing someone, wishing they were still here.

***

From the Wiki article:

Wish You Were Here” is a song by Canadian singer Avril Lavigne from her fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby (2011). The song was released on September 9, 2011 by RCA Records as the third and final single from the album. “Wish You Were Here” was written by Lavigne along with the song’s producers Max Martin and Shellback. According to Lavigne, the song shows her vulnerable side. Critical reception toward the song was positive, with critics praising it as a highlight on the album.

“Wish You Were Here” was described as a midtempo power ballad song, while featuring soaring strings, piano and drum kits. The lyrics talk about missing someone and something we all go through in our lives.

In an interview with MTV News, Lavigne described the song as the most personal track on the album. “It was more raw and stripped-down and more emotional and I wasn’t holding back,”

“Wish You Were Here”, by Avril Lavigne, was released as a single from her album, “Goodbye Lullaby”, in 2011. It was written by Avril Lavigne, Max Martin, & Shellback, and is on the RCA label.

I can be tough

You left them running through my head

“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.

More fun facts can be found at their link (above)

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

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
