So – Elevator music – What is this? I’ve always heard this term, but finding something that could really be called that wasn’t so easy for me, at least.

I figured any slow, boring instrumental song would do, and that’s pretty much the way it is. But there are lots of regular songs that have been turned into the so called ‘elevator music’.

These are songs that are played in the background at places, where you don’t really have to pay attention, but you kind of hear them anyway. You can hear them on elevators (though I’ve never been in one that played music), at the grocery store, department stores at the mall, and any place where people congregate.

This type of music can also be called Muzak, easy listening, & background music.

I’m not sure if this song I chose has been used as such, but probably has been at one time or another.

Born Free” is a popular song with music by John Barry, and lyrics by Don Black. It was written for the 1966 film of the same name and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Born free
As free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart
Live free
And beauty surrounds you
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star
Stay free
Where no walls divide you
You’re free as a roaring tide so there’s no need to hide
Born free
And life is worth living
But only worth living
‘Cause you’re born free
Stay free
Where no walls divide you
You’re free as a roaring tide so there’s no need to hide
Born free
And life is worth living
But only worth living
‘Cause you’re born free

***

I was completely drawing a blank on this prompt of Fix or Make. I know how they are different – fix means to repair something that is broken, while make is to create something new.

So, I was browsing for some kind of a song to use and came across this one. I’d never heard it before, but it’s pretty good, and has the word fix in there, too. I really like the music, the singer’s accent, and the story he is telling in his song. The more times I listen to it the better I like it.

But then I couldn’t find any mention of this song anywhere, as to when it was recorded, or what label, or who wrote it … nothing!

All I could find was a sort of biography deal on the Wiki for Richard Thomson. That’s all I have except the song and the lyrics.

***

From the Wiki article:

The discography of Richard Thompson, an English singer/songwriter and guitarist, consists of 18 solo studio albums, three live albums and 16 singles, in addition to six studio albums and two live albums credited to Richard and Linda Thompson and five studio albums as a member of Fairport Convention, as well as a number of fan club and boutique label releases, soundtracks and collaborations. He has also appeared as a guest musician on the albums of several other artists.

I’m Darby the tinker and my brother is Tam
We go where the work is, my boys, and we work where we can
With the mending and fixing, it’s together we stay
Intending our fortunes to try on the old changing way
We come to your cities and we call on your wives
We’ll fix up your kettles, please dear missus, we’ll sharpen your knives
And we always agreed that together we’d stay
Intending our fortunes to try on the old changing way
At times they grew scanty and the money grew thin
We worked for a song but the money it didn’t come in
Now brothers are kindred but hard times betray
And so we stumbled apart on the old changing way
We never agreed to divide our tin
And when you’re out of love with your brother, your hard times begin
For the spikes and the brothels, they’re shameful to see
But don’t you travel alone, boys, this warning you take from me
You must share with your nearest till the end of your days
Or else it’s forever you’re on the old changing way

Notes from a Wiki article:

This song reached # 1 on Cashbox, and # 2 on Billboard. It has also been recorded by Simon & Garfunkle, and George Harrison.

The guitar intro was not originally part of the song, but was something that Don Everly had come up with and was tacked on to the beginning.[3] Chet Atkins was the lead guitar player on the session.[4] Buddy Harman was the drummer.[5]

“Bye Bye Love”, by the Everly Brothers, can be found on their album released in 1957. It was written by Felice & Boudieaux Bryant, and is on the Cadence label.

Hello loneliness

Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness

She sure looks happy, I sure am blue
She was my baby ’til he stepped in
Goodbye to romance that might have been
Bye bye love

Hello loneliness

I’m through with romance, I’m through with love
I’m through with counting the stars above
And here’s the reason that I’m so free
My loving baby is through with me

Hang On Sloopy” is a 1964 song by Wes Farrell and Bert Berns, originally titled “My Girl Sloopy”. It was first recorded and made a hit by R&B vocal group the Vibrations. When the rock band the McCoys covered it in 1965, the song peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number five on the UK Singles Chart.

According to Rick Derringer, the original version of Sloopy was written by a “high school kid in St. Louis” and sold to Bert Russell, also known as Bert Berns.[3] The inspiration for the song is said to be Dorothy Sloop, a jazz singer from Steubenville, Ohio, and a student at Ohio University.[4]

Jet, Jet, Jet
I can almost remember their funny faces
That time you told them you were going to be marrying soon
And Jet, I thought the only lonely place was the moon
Jet, Jet, Jet
Was your father as bold as the sergeant major?
How come he told you that you were hardly old enough yet?
And Jet, I thought the major was a lady suffragette
Jet, Jet
Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater, much later
Ooh she said

With the wind in your hair of a thousand laces
Climb on the back and we’ll go for a ride in the sky

From a Wiki article:

San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear [Some] Flowers in Your Hair)” is a psychedelic pop song, written by John Phillips, and sung by Scott McKenzie.[2] It was produced and released in May 1967 by Phillips and Lou Adler, who used it to promote their Monterey International Pop Music Festival held in June of that year.[3]

The song became one of the best-selling singles of the 1960s in the world, reaching the fourth position on the US charts and the number one spot on the UK charts. In Ireland, it was number one for one week, in New Zealand the song spent five weeks at number one, and in Germany it was six weeks at number one.

McKenzie’s version has been called “the unofficial anthem of the counterculture movement of the 1960s, including the Hippie, Anti-Vietnam War and Flower power movements.”[4]

“San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair”, by Scott McKenzie, was released in 1967. It was written by John Phillips, and is on the Ode and Columbia labels.

If you’re going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you’re going to San Francisco
You’re gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair

All across the nation
Such a strange vibration
People in motion
There’s a whole generation
With a new explanation
People in motion
People in motion

For those who come to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there

If you come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there

This is a fun little song which I like a lot. I first heard it on the movie, Beetlejuice. It however got it’s start back in 1952. Several people recorded it before Harry Belafonte did is version. Since then it has been recorded many times by many other people, and is included in lots of movies.

Here is an article telling more about it:

https://wiki2.org/en/Jump_in_the_Line_(Shake,_Senora)

Perhaps its most memorable appearance is in the 1988 Tim Burton comedy horror film Beetlejuice during the climax. This occurrence would later resurface in the Broadway musical stage adaptation in 2019 as the finale.

“Jump In the Line”, by Harry Belafonte, was released from his album, “Jump Up Calypso”, in 1961. It was written by Lord Kitchener, and is on the RCA Victor label.

And fellas, you got to watch it
When she wind up, she bottom,

Hoist those guns a little higher!

She go up in the air, come down in slow motion

I hadn’t heard this song before and I think it’s pretty good. I’ve heard other songs from this band and like them, too. This video was interesting, as it kind of shows how a CD is being made.

From a Wiki article:

The music video for “Misery” features footage of the band performing onstage intercut with film of what appears to be the making of the “Misery” CD single itself.

“Misery”, reached number 20 on The Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Modern Rock Tracks chart in the US

“Misery”, by Soul Asylum was released in 1995 as a single from their album, “Let Your Dim Light Shine”. It was written by Dave Pirner, and is on the Columbia label.

They say misery loves company
We could start a company and make misery
Frustrated, Incorporated
Well I know just what you need
I might just have the thing
I know what you’d pay to see
Put me out of my misery
I’d do it for you, would you do it for me
We will always be busy making misery
We could build a factory and make misery
We’ll create the cure; we made the disease
Frustrated, Incorporated
Frustrated, Incorporated
Well I know just what you need
I might just have the thing
I know what you’d pay to feel
Put me out of my misery
All you suicide kings and you drama queens
Forever after happily, making misery
Did you satisfy your greed, get what you need
Was it only envy, so empty
Frustrated, Incorporated
Frustrated, Incorporated
Frustrated, Incorporated (put me out of my misery)
Frustrated, Incorporated (I’d do it for you, would you do it for me)
Frustrated, Incorporated (forever after happily)

I like it black, just black as night
It keeps me up, it keeps me tight
It don’t matter the size of the cup
Just as long as you fill it up
With black caffeine
Keeps me lean
You can hear me scream
Give me black caffeine
Oh I’ve got a monkey sittin on my back
How wouldn’t you know he likes it black?
Don’t need no cream, no nicotine
All that monkey need is the black caffeine
More black caffeine
It keeps me lean
You can hear him scream
Give me black caffeine
Give me black caffeine
I’m sellin the body, I’m soundin mine
Until it comes to my coffee time
Don’t stand in my way, don’t hold me back
Just keep me high and keep it black
Good black caffeine
It keeps me lean
You can hear me scream
Give me black caffeine
The devil sin, I want your soul
I want your silver, I need your gold
Well you can have anything I’ve got
Don’t let him in my coffee pot
Good black caffeine

I first thought of this song for the prompt of weather. Weather is almost always on my mind, especially when there are thunderstorms, because living in ‘tornado alley’ here, we can have one any time. I know, as I’ve survived an F-5 tornado right here in town. Every springtime brings nightmares of that night – May 11, 1970.

I like the song, and also like a lot of Carrie Underwood’s songs. She is from Oklahoma, and definitely knows about tornadoes, too.

***

From a Wiki article” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blown_Away_(Carrie_Underwood_song)

“Blown Away” tells the story of a daughter locking herself in a storm cellar while her alcoholic father is passed out on the couch in the path of a tornado.[5] Underwood revealed that “Blown Away” was the song that defined the direction of the album, and recalled the first time she heard the demo:

“I listened to it on my crappy computer speakers and then I had to go find my headphones because as soon as I listened to a few bars, I had to listen more closely and I got chills. I remember where I was when I heard it and called my manager, Ann, and I was like, ‘Do not let anyone else have this song! It’s my song.’ In talking to Chris and Josh about it, they [told me], ‘We said we’re either writing a song for Carrie Underwood or this song is never going to see the light of day.’ It made me feel so good that they were thinking of me when they wrote it.”[5]

***

“Blown Away”, by Carrie Underwood was released as a single from her 2011 album of the same name. It was written by Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear, and is on the Arista Nashville label.

Dry lightning cracks across the skies
Those storm clouds gather in her eyes
Her daddy was mean a old mister
Mama was an angel in the ground
The weather man called for a twister
She prayed blow it down
There’s not enough rain in Oklahoma
To wash the sins out of that house
There’s not enough wind in Oklahoma
To rip the nails out of the past
Shatter every window ’til it’s all blown away
Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away
‘Til there’s nothing left standing
Nothing left of yesterday
Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away, blown away, blown away
She heard those sirens screaming out
Her daddy laid there passed out on the couch
She locked herself in the cellar
Listened to the screaming of the wind
Some people called it taking shelter
She called it sweet revenge
Shatter every window till it’s all blown away
Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away
‘Til there’s nothing left standing
Nothing left of yesterday
Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away, blown away
There’s not enough rain in Oklahoma
To wash the sins out of that house
There’s not enough wind in Oklahoma
To rip the nails out of the past (blown away)
Shatter every window till it’s all blown away
Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away (blown away)
Till there’s nothing left standing
Nothing left of yesterday
Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away
Blown away, blown away, blown away, blown away
