Today for SLS we are to find any country song. That’s easy, I think. But wait … I like a lot of country songs, old ones and new ones, fast ones an slow ones, girl singers and guy singers. How do I choose just one?

Finally I just went with Miranda Lambert, because she is a favorite. I like most all her songs. I watched her from the beginning when she was on the TV talent show for country acts in 2003, “Nashville Star” season one, where she came in 3rd in the finale.  I’ve also seen her in concert a couple of times, and she puts on a super show.

***

Automatic” is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Miranda Lambert. It was released in February 2014 and served as the lead single from her fifth studio album, Platinum. Lambert co-wrote the song with Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby. It was nominated for two Grammy Awards for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song.

“Automatic” is a mid-tempo country song that is built around lyrics of nostalgia and remembering the days “back before everything became automatic.”

Quarter in a payphoneDrying laundry on the lineWatching sun tea in the windowPocket watch tellin’ timeSeems like only yesterday, I’d get a blank cassetteRecord the country countdown ’cause I couldn’t buy it yet
If we drove all the way to Dallas just to buy an Easter dressWe’d take along a Rand McNally, stand in line to pay for gasGod knows that shifting gears ain’t what it used to beI learned to drive that ’55, just like a queen, three on a tree
Hey, what ever happened to waiting your turnDoing it all by hand?‘Cause when everything is handed to youIt’s only worth as much as the time put inIt all just seems so good the way we had itBack before everything became automatic
If you had something to sayYou’d write it on a piece of paperThen you put a stamp on itAnd they’d get it three days laterBoys would call the girlsAnd girls would turn them downStaying married was the only way to work your problems out
Hey, what ever happened to waiting your turnDoing it all by hand?‘Cause when everything is handed to youIt’s only worth as much as the time put inIt all just seems so good the way we had itBack before everything became automatic, yeahAutomatic
Let’s roll the windows downWindows with the cranksCome on, let’s take a pictureThe kind you gotta shake
Hey, what ever happened to waiting your turnDoing it all by hand?‘Cause when everything is handed to youIt’s only worth as much as the time put inIt all just seems so good the way we had itBack before everything became automatic, yeahAutomatic

I like all kinds of music, and Heavy Metal is definitely a favorite of mine. There are so many great bands and songs to choose from, but I picked Deep Purple. We bought their album when we were living in Germany, and this song was really good. I still like hearing it.

It’s neat how this SLS prompt came up today, because I’ve been reading (well re-reading) a book I have about metal music. It’s “Bang Your Head – The Rise and Fall Of Heavy Metal”, by David Konow. I’ve had the book a long time. My daughter gave it to me. It has lots of great information on lots of bands.

Here is a Wiki article about how the song came to be – the true story … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoke_on_the_Water

This video of the song (a live recording) is preceded and ends in a short interview about it.

“Smoke on the Water”, by Deep Purple, is the bands first single, from their album, “Machine Head”, released in 1973. It was written by Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice. It is on the Purple (EU) and Warner Bros (US) labels.

***

We all came out to MontreuxOn the Lake Geneva shorelineTo make records with a mobile, yeahWe didn’t have much time now
Frank Zappa and the MothersWere at the best place aroundBut some stupid with a flare gunBurned the place to the ground
Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky(Smoke) on the water, you guys are great
They burned down the gambling houseIt died with an awful soundFunky Claude was running in and outHe was pulling kids out the ground now
When it all was overFind another placeSwiss time was running outIt seemed that we would lose the race
Smoke on the water, a fire in the skySmoke on the water
Burn it down
We ended up at the Grand HotelIt was empty, cold and bareThe Rolling truck Stones thing just outsideHuh, making our music there now
With a few red lights and a few old bedsWe made a place to sweatNo matter what we get out of thisI know, I know we’ll never forget
Smoke on the water, a fire in the skySmoke on the water(I can’t hear anything)
one more time(Smoke on the water) hey!

This week the theme is to find Paisley Underground songs.

***

I’ve spent way too long trying to find something for this SLS challenge today. I really don’t get what it is – jangle pop? paisley underground? I looked up some stuff, and I’d heard of some of the so called jangle pop bands, but none of the paisley underground bands. I liked some of the songs quite a bit.

Still, I couldn’t find out anything about the bands much. I did find this song. It’s pretty good, nice jam sounds. I don’t know anything about them or if they are part of this kind of music, but they are singing about it. The first is just their fun video I guess, and the second is of them doing different things and has the lyrics on there.

Or maybe I’m just missing the whole idea of the challenge?

In that case … never mind … just listen to the song and see if you like it! 🙂

From a Wiki article:

Paisley Underground is a musical genre that originated in California. It was particularly popular in Los Angeles, reaching a peak in the mid-1980s. Paisley Underground bands incorporated psychedelia, rich vocal harmonies and guitar interplay, owing a particular debt to 1960s groups such as Love and the Byrds, but more generally referencing a wide range of pop and garage rock revival.[1]

This subject or theme or prompt is for songs classified as ‘garage’.

Evidently almost every song I heard and liked in the 60s could be this type of music. I saw lists … long lists … of songs, and every one I liked, so it was hard to find just one.

I did read that they almost all started out in the beginning as local bands made up of friends, maybe still in high school, who got together in someone’s garage to practice making music. They were not well known, until later on, then making the scene in a big way.

From a Wiki article:

Keep On Dancing” is a rock song written by Allen A. Jones, Andrew Love and Richard Shann, originally recorded by the U.S. R&B group, The Avantis (not to be confused with the surf rock band with the same name) on Argo Records in 1963.

In 1965, the song was covered by The Gentrys.[2] The Gentrys’ version was first released on Youngstown 601 in 1965, but was soon nationally distributed by MGM Records.[3] “Keep On Dancing” is notable for the fact that it is actually one short recording repeated in order to stretch the record out to the length of the typical pop single of its day. The second part of the song (after the false fade, beginning with Gentrys drummer Larry Wall’s drum fill) is the same as the first.

***

Oh … whoever put this video together did so in a fun way … taking short bits of TV sitcom shows with people dancing. So funny and nice to see lots of those old shows, too. 🙂

“Keep On Dancing”, by The Gentrys, can be found on their 1965 album of the same name. It is on the Youngstown label, and it’s classified genre is ‘Garage Rock’.

Today Jim asks for us to find some songs that are ‘punk rock’. I don’t know a lot of these bands that do this kind of music, but some I have heard and some I like … Like this one! 🙂

This is a really fun song and video! I’ve liked it since I first heard it long ago.

***

From a Wiki article:

The story of the song is penned from the perspective of a character who is not interested in punk rock music, only a punk rock girlfriend.[1] Genaro describes the protagonist as a “middle of the road” kid who just wants to “walk on the wild side”.[4] In the song, the narrator meets the titular girl one Saturday evening, and launches “into a series of boredom-avoiding, punk-themed adventures with her”.

The track was the group’s biggest commercial hit; it peaked at number eleven on Billboard‘s Modern Rock Tracks chart, the band’s only such entry on the charts. Its music video was a surprise success when it was picked up by MTV, where it became a staple of the era. The song has been considered one of the first pop punk hits, as well as a breakthrough for the comedy rock genre. “Punk Rock Girl” remains the band’s best-known song, and has been covered by numerous artists and licensed for a variety of media. The song is the namesake of a stage musical by Joe Iconis that first premiered in January 2022.

“Punk Rock Girl”, by the Dead Milkmen, can be found on their 1988 album, “Beelzebubba”. It was written by Joseph Genero, Dave Schulthise, Rodney Linderman, and Dean Sabitino. It is on the Enigma label.

One Saturday I took a walk to ZipperheadI met a girl there and she almost knocked me dead
, please look at me(Punk rock girl), what do you see?Let’s travel round the worldJust you and me, punk rock girl
I tapped her on the shoulderAnd said do you have a bell?She looked at me and smiled and said she did not know
, give me a chance(Punk rock girl), let’s go slam danceWe’ll dress like Minnie PearlJust you and me, punk rock girl
We went to the Philly Pizza Company and ordered some hot teaThe waitress said “well no, we only have it iced”So we jumped up on the table and shouted anarchyAnd someone played a Beach Boys song on the jukeboxIt it was California Dreamin’So we started screamin’On such a winter’s day
She took me to her parents for a Sunday mealHer father took one look at me and he began to squeal
, it makes no sense(Punk rock girl), your dad is the vice president Rich as the Duke of Earl Yeah, you’re for me punk rock girl
We went to a shopping mallAnd laughed at all the shoppersAnd security guards trailed us to a record shopWe asked for Mojo NixonThey said he don’t work hereWe said if you don’t got Mojo Nixon then your store could use some fixin’
We got into her car away, we started rollin’I said how much you pay for thisSaid “nothin’ man it’s stolen”
you look so wild(Punk rock girl) let’s have a childWe’ll name her Minnie PearlJust you and meEat fudge banana swirlJust you and meWe’ll travel round the worldJust you and mePunk rock girl

This week the theme is to find songs with a Mersey Beat, or Mersey Sound or you could go with a band from Surrey.

***

I’d probably heard the label, ‘Mersey Beat’, or sound, but didn’t remember what it meant. I did find that it is mostly songs that were by British bands in and around Liverpool during the early 60s.  … Well, okay!

Now the problem was to find a song from one of these bands. I think this era and possibly area was among my favorite for songs, and for remembering them all. So choosing just one was the hardest part.

Anyway, here’s one that I like a lot. Hope you like it, too.

From Wiki: “Heart Full of Soul” is a song recorded by English rock group the Yardbirds in 1965. Written by Graham Gouldman, it was the Yardbirds’ first single after Jeff Beck replaced Eric Clapton as lead guitarist. Released only three months after “For Your Love“, “Heart Full of Soul” reached the Top 10 on the singles charts in the UK, US, and several other countries.

***

“Heart Full of Soul”, by The Yardbirds, was released in 1965 as a single. It was written by Graham Gouldman, and is on the Columbia (UK) and Epic (US) labels.

Sick at heart and lonelyDeep in dark despairThinking one thought onlyWhere is she, tell me whereAnd if she says to youShe don’t want meJust give her my messageTell her of my pleaAnd I know, if she had me back againOh, I would never make her sadI got a heart full of soulShe’s been gone such a long timeLonger than I can bearBut if she says she wants meTell her I’ll be thereAnd if she says to youShe don’t love meJust give her my messageTell her of my pleaAnd I know, if she had me back againOh, I would never make her sadI got a heart full of soul

Today’s prompt asks us to find Power Pop songs. I’d never really heard of that term before, but seems there are a lot of bands and songs that fit the prompt that I have heard of. There are the usual, by the big name groups, which I’m sure we’ve all heard, but I found this group awhile back and love their videos. I’m not real familiar with their songs, but they are fun to listen to while watching the amazing videos.

Here’s the first one I saw, though they have a whole lot more.

***

From a Wiki article:

Upside Down & Inside Out” is a song by American rock band OK Go. It was released as a single from their fourth studio album, Hungry Ghosts.

The band released a video for the song on February 11, 2016 that featured the members in a zero gravity environment created via flight in a reduced gravity aircraft. They produced the video with support from the Russian S7 Airlines.

OK Go’s music style has generally been regarded as alternative rock,[168][169][170][171] power pop,[172][173] pop rock,[174][175][176] indie rock,[177][178] and indie pop.[173][179]

“Upside Down & Inside Out”, by OK Go, can be found on their 2016 album, “Hungry Ghosts”. It was written by Damian Kulash and Tim Nordwind, and is on the Paracadute label.

Foster the People is a Los Angeles indie rock band that started off as a solo project for vocalist, guitarist and keyboardist Mark Foster, who had been working as a jingle composer for commercials. As his songs became more grandiose, Foster enlisted bassist Cubbie Fink and drummer Mark Pontius. This is the band’s debut single. (from Songfacts)

I first heard this song while on a long road trip in the car. It has a good beat, and interesting catch phrase hook. I had no idea what the rest of the song was about until much later on. Still it’s a good song, though sounds horrifying because of the violence that happens all too often these days.

Here are some Wiki statements from the writer of the song, Mark Foster …

The lyrics to “Pumped Up Kicks” are written from the perspective of a troubled and delusional youth with homicidal thoughts.[8] The lines in the chorus warn potential victims to “outrun my gun” and that they “better run, better run, faster than my bullet.” Foster said in a statement to CNN Entertainment, “I wrote ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ when I began to read about the growing trend in teenage mental illness. I wanted to understand the psychology behind it because it was foreign to me. It was terrifying how mental illness among youth had skyrocketed in the last decade. I was scared to see where the pattern was headed if we didn’t start changing the way we were bringing up the next generation.”[11] In writing the song, Foster wanted to “get inside the head of an isolated, psychotic kid”[8] and “bring awareness” to the issue of gun violence among youth, which he feels is an epidemic perpetuated by “lack of family, lack of love, and isolation.”

The Wiki article explains the song and how it came about. Interesting!

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

***

“Pumped Up Kicks”, by Foster The People, can be found on their 2010 album, “Torches”. It was written by Mark Foster and is on the Columbia – Startime labels.

Here is a short explanation of this song.

Today’s prompt is to find Motown songs. At the link above, Jim gives a great explanation of what Motown is and how it got started. Thanks, Jim!

There are so many great songs to choose from, but here’s a favorite.

From a Wiki article:

Superstition” is a song by American singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder. It was released on October 24, 1972, as the lead single from his fifteenth studio album, Talking Book (1972), by Tamla.[5] The lyrics describe popular superstitions[6] and their negative effects.

“Superstition” reached number one in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in January 1973 [7][6] and on the soul singles chart.[8] It was Wonder’s first number-one single since “Fingertips, Pt. 2” in 1963.[9] It peaked at number eleven in the UK Singles Chart in February 1973. In November 2004, Rolling Stone ranked the song number 74 on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It was re-ranked number 73 on its 2010 list,[10] and re-ranked number 12 on its 2021 list.[11] At the 16th Grammy Awards, the song won Stevie Wonder two Grammys for writing (Best Rhythm & Blues Song) and performing (Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male).

“Superstition”, written and performed by Stevie Wonder, can be found on his 1972 album, “Talking Book”. It was written by Stevie Wonder, and is on the Motown label.

Very superstitious,Writing’s on the wall,Very superstitious,Ladders bout’ to fall,Thirteen month old baby,Broke the lookin’ glassSeven years of bad luck,The good things in your past
When you believe in thingsThat you don’t understand,Then you suffer,Superstition aint the way
Hey
Very superstitious,Wash your face and hands,Rid me of the problem,Do all that you can,Keep me in a daydream,Keep me goin’ strong,You don’t wanna save me,Sad is the soul
When you believe in thingsThat you don’t understand,Then you suffer,Superstition ain’t the way,Yeh, yeh
Very superstitious,Nothin’ more to say,Very superstitious,The devil’s on his way,Thirteen month old baby,Broke the lookin’ glass,Seven years of bad luck,Good things in your past
When you believe in thingsThat you don’t understand,Then you suffer,Superstition ain’t the way,No, no, no

This week the theme is to find songs with recognizable intros suggested by Clive from Take It Easy.

***

There are so many songs with cool intro music. I always thought I’d be good at that game ‘Name That Tune’ just by the first few notes I hear.

This song has a great intro to it, very memorable, and it plays throughout the song, too.

This song today is a favorite of mine since 1976. I have lots of memories from hearing this. Here’s a few: In 1976 I was expecting my first baby, I had morning sickness, I even threw up in the K-Mart parking lot one time, I ate lemon drop candies to settle my stomach, I craved real lemons, peel and all, we drove a big green car with black top, we lived on 64th street … on an on with the memories of that time, and hearing this song on the radio during it all. 🙂

From a Wiki article:

Love Is Alive” is a song by Gary Wright taken from the 1975 album The Dream Weaver. It features Wright on vocals and keyboards and Andy Newmark on drums, with all music except for the drums produced on the keyboards. The album’s title cut and “Love Is Alive” both peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.[1] “Love Is Alive” spent 27 weeks on the chart, seven weeks longer than “Dream Weaver”. Billboard ranked “Love Is Alive” as the No. 9 song of 1976.

“Love Is Alive”, written and performed by Gary Wright. It is on the Warner Bros. label
