    Hi everybody! Think it's time for a new game? I hope you like this one!

    This is for songs that have directions in the title or lyrics.

    For instance: Up, Down, Around, Behind, Beyond, Under, Beneath, Beside, Through, By, Below, In, Out, Over, Above, Inside, Outside, East, West, North, South, and anything else you can think of.

    Enjoy!

    Wow, another great thread, GB!!!!!

    My first thought --

    Up, Up and Away, The Fifth Dimension, 1967



    "... For we can fly, up, up and away
    In my beautiful, my beautiful balloon ..."

    Wind Beneath My Wings, Bette Midler, 1983



    "... Did you ever know that you're my hero
    And everything I would like to be?
    I can fly higher than an eagle
    For you are the wind beneath my wings ..."

    Don't Let Me Down, The Beatles, 1969



    "... Don't let me down, don't let me down.
    Don't let me down, don't let me down. ..."

    By the way, I've added these last three song games to the thread I start with the Title "SONG TITLES." If you want I can bump up that thread, or y'all just keep notes of the new games added. :)

    I'm still dancing and humming to UP UP & AWAY!!!! LOL

    Take care y'all ... I'm sure I'll be back soon!!!

    Oh, good for you GB. I thought of a couple songs. Then I checked; you
    already posted them. Ooops! Almost all the songs I thought of are from the 40s.

    Some Enchanted Evening, you may see a stranger across a crowded room. Or
    did you want only title words?

    Moon Over Miami from the movie of the same name with Betty Grable and
    Don Ameche. Saw her 25 years later in Hello Dolly! She still looked great.

    Beyond the Blue Horizon from a Dorothy Lamour movie of the same name
    with Jack Haley (minus his Tin Man suit).

    Up Above My Head, I hear music in the air.

    Going Out of my Head Over You.

    Downtown. I read Petula Clark's bio decades ago.

    Around the Corner, Beneath the Berry Tree. Recorded by June Carter and
    Jo Stafford.

    Deep in the Hear of Texas. The prairie sky is wide and high...I believe
    Granni sings this while doing chores around the ranch.

    Lennon & Maisy - "That's What's Up" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

    Two absolutely amzing singing sisters who do beautiful harmonies.

    You folks always amaze me with all the songs you think of! (It can be in the titile or in the song.)

    Rock, all my songs seem to be from the 40's, 50's and then, the 70's. My brain was out to lunch during the 60's I guess, that's when I had a house full of very little kids and no time to listen to music.

    Diane, Thank you for putting these song games in a thread. I wonder if there is a way to keep them permanently at the top, like in a sticky post?

    Hi to Soul and Hangininthere! Great videos everyone. :) GB

    Hi Kids

    Soul, never heard that cheerful ditty before. Reminded me of The Singing Nun and
    Dominique.

    Diane, I love the song Wind Beneath My Wings. Patti LuPone sang it on that
    TV show she had for a couple years.

    GB, lots of songs, aren't there. It amazes me that the lyrics are available on the
    net for so many of them. Even songs from prior centuries.

    Here are two songs associated with Gene Autry. Up on the Rooftop which also
    contains the words "through" and "down". And Here Comes Peter Cottontail,
    hopping down the bunny trail.

    Sunday Morning Coming Down by Kris Kristofferson.
    Roll Along, Prairie Moon which also contains above, way up there, and
    far away. Recorded by Bonnie Guitar.

    And a song from the 20s recorded by Helen Kane (the Boop-Boop-
    A-Doop girl). Also by Bonnie Guitar (who did an entire album of moon
    songs) and Ruth Etting and Bing Crosby. Get Out and Get
    Under the Moon.

    'Neath the Southern Moon from an operetta by Victor Herbert. Jeanette
    MacDonald and Nelson Eddy sang it in the movie back in the 30s.
    Poor choice of names by two very big stars. Even Jeanette's fan club
    had trouble spelling her name. They put out a record of her radio broadcasts
    3-4 decades back. Had her name misspelled. As for Nelson, he had a first
    name for a surname and vice versa.

    North to Alaska recorded by Johnny Horton. Used to have a 3 record set of
    his hits. It was hard to tell them apart though. The records each had their
    own cardboard jacket, but all had the same cover picture. Well, guess I've
    covered that topic.


    Aloha (The song Aloha Oe contains the word through, It was attributed to
    the Queen of Hawaii; written in the 1870s.)

    Hi all!

    I thought of more songs --

    UP WHERE WE BELONG, Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes, 1982

    "... Love lift us up where we belong
    Where the eagles cry on a mountain high
    Love lift us up where we belong
    Far from the world we know, up where the clear winds blow ..."




    DON'T LET THE SUN GO DOWN ON ME, Elton John (w/George Michael), 1974

    "... Don't let the sun go down on me
    Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
    I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
    But losing everything is like the sun going down on me ..."




    ROCK ------

    I love listening to Patti Lupone! I first heard about her from that TV show (Life Goes On). Then I saw her on a couple PBS specials, like 4th of July in D.C., watched her perform live. WOW! Great voice.

    Here's --

    EVERYTHING'S COMING UP ROSES, Patti Lupone
    from the Broadway show "GYPSY"

    "... You'll be swell! You'll be great!
    Gonna have the whole world on the plate!
    Starting here, starting now,
    honey, everything's coming up roses! ..."





    Hi Soul, I loved that video!

    GB-------------

    I private messaged Mikie about pinning that post to the top of the Board. I listed you as a member of the PM conversation. Mikie is really good about taking care of things like that. She just doesn't have the time to read ALL the forums and subforms here on PH. :)


    GREAT THREAD, ALL!!!!!

    I'm enjoying all the songs.

    Even a kitty (or two or three) is dancing! LOL

    [​IMG] .......... [​IMG] .......... [​IMG]
    FAITHY ......... BEETY ............ ROSIE


    And the crowd cheers, for the dancing kitties!!!!! [​IMG]

    Diane (hope that made y'all smile!) :D

    Hi Kids

    Well, here are a few more for our collection.

    Dixie, Away down South in Dixie.
    So High. Recorded by Elvis, et. al.
    Away Rio. A song of the sea.
    Coming Round the Mountains.

    The One on the Left is the One on the Right. Recorded by Johnny Cash.
    Under the Bamboo Tree. An old song that was included in the movie
    'Meet Me in St. Louis". Sung by Judy Garland and Margaret O'Brien.

    Marching Through Georgia. A Civil War song by Henry Clay Work who
    also wrote My Grandfather's Clock which was recorded by Johnny Cash.

    Love the dancing kitties, Diane. Reminds me of the dancin' Itos. They had
    a very short life span. Named after Judge Ito who presided at the O J Simpson
    trial.

    Earlier this year, Judge Ito was still presiding in downtown LA. However dozens
    of courtrooms are being closed due to budget problems so not sure if he is still
    working. OJ, of course, is now retired.

    Hi Rock, Diane, and Soul, I love all the songs you've posted. I've thought of some more but then I forgot them. :)

    I'll try to reach way down in my memory to see if anything's there.

    Diane, Those dancing kittens are so cute. I love kitty cats.

    I actually had posted a message on here a few days ago, but it seems I forgot to enter it! I am really foggy lately. Maybe it's the heat? Hugs to all, GB

    Hi Bluebird, Those are all very good songs! I'm so glad you joined us in the games. If you like, you can go back to any of them and add more songs. Nice to have you here! GB

    I can't believe I forgot Movin' On Up from The Jeffersons. It's a classic!
    Thank you GB for the welcome. I'm going to have to rummage through all of my musical knowledge, and my music collection, to find some more songs.

    Oh my gosh, I had forgotten about The Singing Nuns. My mother had their album. They had a few really cute ones.

    I am not good at the song games. I like the tunes and beats but can never remember the words.

    I really like the sisters from Nashville. I love their harmonies.

    Hi GB
    Since Nov. my computer has crashed twice. Fortunately with windows 10 it was easy to fix but it took almost a week to get everything back the way I had it. My email somehow got messed up too, I can't fix it and don't want a new addy so I will have to make it work.

    I knew in Dec. that I would be housebound in Jan. and Feb from foot surgery so I got a tablet computer. Its 10 inches which is too small for me to see for surfing the internet but it is great for downloading and reading books. I have so far gotten over 80 free books. Not all them worth reading but I am still looking for more. The library showed me how to use it to check books out over the internet and it is downloaded for 3 weeks to the tablet. I haven't tried it yet. I have been mostly reading the free books at amazon.

    The foot surgery went well but I couldn't get the hang of the crutches so I am using a knee walker. It works well in the house but not outside the house. Longer distances makes the hips hurt.

    I also had a nerve block done for female pain but so far it hasn't helped at all. Hopefully the foot surgery will help the foot pain enough that I can start going on walks again.

    Allergy season has started here. It usually starts in Feb. when the blossoms come out on the ornamental trees.

    We haven't had any rain in a few days but there are enough clouds that we had a gorgeous sunset. In the summer we don't get many beautiful ones so I want to stop and take the time to enjoy them when we do have them.

    Now that I am feeling better I hope to be able to spend more time here.

    How have things been going for you? and everyone else on the board?
