    Hi friends! How about a new song game??

    Words or phrases that are repeated 2 or 3 or more times......
    in the title....
    in the lyrics/chorus, etc.

    Hmmmm, I've thought of a few:

    SUGAR SUGAR, The Archies

    MONY MONY, Tommy James and the Shondells

    HEY JUDE, The Beatles

    The chorus:
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah, hey Jude

    I think y'all get the idea! :) Enjoy!

    Hugs, DIANE

    OK, Diane, I'll give it a try. I'll give it a try.

    BTW, sure you got enough "Nah, nahs" there?

    With some of these songs the title is repeated. If not, I put the repetitious
    part in quotes.

    Be-Bop-A-Lula, 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall
    As Long As He Needs Me, Happy Birthday To You

    Heartaches By the Number, Autumn Leaves
    The Unicorn, Sweet Dreams

    El Paso :"The West Texas town of El Paso."
    The Rose: "Some say love..."
    America, The Beautiful: "America"
    Come, Come Ye Saints: "All is well"

    Great post Rock!

    I'll add another, or two, or three:

    JOLENE, Dolly Parton

    "Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene.........."

    NEW YORK, NEW YORK, Frank Sinatra

    TUBTHUMPING, Chumbawamba

    "I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down"


    I'm caught up in music mode today. Can y'all tell? :p

    Play along....... tap your toes, hum a song or two.

    Hugs, DIANE

    Hey, Diane

    I knew Dolly Parton wrote Jolene, but never heard it before. It was a
    number one hit in Canada as well as here. I always thought it was
    a song about a boxer named Joe who was very lean 'cause he was
    always training.

    My favorite Dolly CD is Honky Tonk Angels with Dolly, Loretta and
    Tammy. Had a great new tune titled Sitting On the Front Porch Swing.
    One of those songs that evokes a less frantic time.

    Diane, good subject, I'll give it a try!

    "Put Another Nickel In" in the nickelodeon, all I want is having you and music, music, music.

    "I Could Have Danced All Night" I could have danced all night and still have asked for more.

    "Mimi" Mimi, you funny little good for nothing Mimi...

    "I'll Have a Blue Blue Christmas"

    "All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth" my two front teeth, my two front teeth....

    "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo" Salagadoola Mechika Boola Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo....
    put them together and what have you got, bibbidi bobbidi boo.

    "Sunrise, Sunset" sunrise, sunset, swiftly fly the years. One season following another, laden with happiness and tears.

    Oh Lord, dear GB.

    If you have to call paramedics for ride to ER then do it.

    You could get dehydrated real quick and need IV fluids to perk you up and save your life.

    Hey, GB

    Hope you're better. Is the phenegran helping? Never heard of it before, but
    I read it is used as an antihistamine, sedative, and anti-nausea drug.

    Getting the flu when one is chronically ill is double trudging, unfair
    and really rotten luck.

    Ooh, ooh, a couple more that popped into my little pea brain--

    The Little Brown Church In The Vale - many artists have recorded this old song
    Obladi Oblada - The Beetles

    I try to play during the day but the songs don't pop in until the wee hours of the night. Oy!

    Oh Come, Come, Mikie

    Isn't there a song from Fiddler On The Roof that starts with, "Oy, Oy"?

    I remember when Obladi Oblada was the theme song for a TV show
    with Patti LuPone. I thought it was a great tune. Didn't even know
    it was the work of the Beetles. Not to be confused with the work of the

    OK; songs with repetition. Any song with yodeling. Any song with a chorus.

    Oops! I see I posted Blue Christmas, but GB beat me to it. Well, as somebody
    said, Kathrine Hepburn in The Lion in Winter maybe, "These things
    happen in the best of families."

    Blowing in the Wind; Roll On, Columbia

    Hi everybody!

    GB, hope you're feeling a bit better today, and I hope your pain eases. Fingers crossed.

    Mikie, you made me chuckle, about songs popping into your head during the night. LOL Same thing happens to me.

    I have a notepad, and jot songs down. Then look up the lyrics to see if they apply to this thread. Is that what you do, Rock, Patti, et al.??

    Here are some more songs:

    SHE LOVES YOU, The Beatles

    "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
    She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
    She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"

    I GOT YOU BABE, Sonny & Cher

    I got you babe
    I got you babe"

    Hi Diane

    Yes, that's what I do. Numerous surveys over the years have shown that
    all the top tournament players use this technique.

    Here's a novelty tune that was a hit for the Four Lads when I was
    in Jr. High.

    Since with rock n roll I can't make out all the words in a song, I double check the lyrics online and sometimes find it's unsuitable for polite company and can't post the video here.
