    How about 'Songs', about songs? Any song with the word Song, Melody, Tune, Singing, Humming, Whistling,

    Also, Air, Ditty, Serenade, Symphony, Lullaby, Strain, Refrain, in the title or lyrics. Hummmm?

    Hey, GB Good topic.

    Londonderry Air aka Danny Boy.
    Elmer's Tune. A 40s top ten hit for Glenn Miller.
    Annie's Song by J. Denver. Stephen Foster BTW wrote a song called Gentle
    Annie. So did the Irish balladeer Tommy Makem who often sang with the
    Clancy Brothers.

    Air on a G String by J. S. Bach. A violin has four strings. But this piece can
    be played on just the G string. I think you need some help though with an
    accomplice playing the piano or a guitar. If you're playing in the
    orchestra, it's a violin. If you're playing at a hoedown, it's a fiddle.

    A song of love is a sad song. Hi Lili, Hi Lili, Hi Lo.

    This is my song, My very own song, I can sing it short or I can sing
    it long. From the 50s movie Tom Thumb. Sung by the acrobatic
    dancer Russ Tamblyn. He also danced in West Side Story and 7
    Brides for 7 Brothers.

    Trainwhistle blowin' from Morningtown Ride. Written by Malvina Reynolds
    and sung by the Seekers.

    Hi GB!!!!!!!, and everybody!

    Great topic.


    "Hey, won't you play another
    Somebody done somebody wrong song
    And make me feel at home
    While I miss my baby, while I miss my baby"

    JUST AN OLD FASHIONED LOVE SONG, Three Dog Night, 1971

    "Just an old-fashioned love song
    Playin' on the radio
    And wrapped around the music
    Is the sound of someone promising they'll never go"

    THE SHOOP SHOOP SONG, Betty Everett, 1964

    "Does he love me I want to know
    How can I tell if he loves me so
    Is it in his eyes?
    Oh no! You'll be deceived
    Is it in his sighs?
    Oh no! He'll make believe
    If you want to know if he loves you so
    It's in his kiss
    That's where it is"

    Later, 'gators................

    Diane, I love that "Somebody Wrong" song. Haven't heard it in
    a coon's age.

    Melody D'Amour (Song of Love) Ames Brothers hit.
    Take this song to my lover. Shoo, shoo little bird. Go and find
    my love.

    The Prisoner's Song, a big hit in the mid 1920s. Sold millions
    of records. Apparently nobody knows for sure how many. Recorded
    by Vernon Dahlhart which was a show biz name for a cowboy who
    lived in the area near two Texas towns: Vernon and Dahlhart.

    Train Whistle Blues by Jimmie Rodgers 1929.

    Folsom Prison Blues. Another reference to a "lonesome train whistle".

    "I'll sing you one, Ho" from the song Green Grow the Rushes.

    The Lark in the Clear Air. "I hear the sweet lark sing in the
    clear air of the day."

    Came across a video on Youtube. Song of the Crickets. Seemed to
    be a buncha drum beats and some random notes. I didn't listen
    too long. Was afraid it would drive me buggy.

    Sing a Song of Sixpence. A lot of sibilants there.

    A Melody of Tears by Beethoven. There are pages of this tinkly piano
    tune on Youtube. It was obviously written in the present and not in the
    18th century. Maybe the info that Beethoven wrote this piece came from
    the same source that claimed Elvis was alive and living over a laundromat
    in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

    A Melody From the Sky. This tune is from a 30s movie called "The
    Trail of the Lonesome Pine". Starred Henry Fonda. Recorded by
    Bob Crosby and his Bobcats. Bob was Bing's brother; also had
    a mellow baritone.

    Duquesne Whistle. Co written by Bob Dylan and some other guy. The French
    name refers to a city in Pennsylvania. The song is about a train. Something
    like that.

    Sing Me Back Home. A sad country western song; recorded by Merle
    Haggard. In addition to singing, Merle does impressions of other
    c-w singers like Marty Robbins.

    Sing. A song with a one-word title. Written by the Sesame Street
    composer Joe Raposo. It was a hit for the Carpenters. And was on
    the Sesame Street record my son and I used to listen to.

    Very good, Soul. You and your paper mache deer should be on Sesame Street.
    Just think. It's been on the air since the 60s. The first year it was such a
    success that Big Bird was on the cover of Time Magazine.

    Hope things are fine at your casa.

    Hi everybody,

    I just remembered two more songs:

    SONG SUNG BLUE, Neil Diamond, 1972

    "Song sung blue, everybody knows one
    Song sung blue, every garden grows one"

    MY MELODY OF LOVE, Bobby Vinton, 1974

    "Oh, oh, moja droga ja cie kocham
    Means that I love you so
    Moja droga ja cie kocham
    More than you'll ever know
    Kocham ciebie calem serce
    Love you with all my heart
    Return to me and always be
    My melody of love"

    Bobby Vinton is known as "The Polish Prince!" Hence the Polish lyrics. He's also from Pennsylvania!!:cool:

    Great thread! I'm enjoying reading all the posts.
