    Thought of a new idea we might enjoy. How about songs that name anything to do with our bodies or our feelings/emotions? (We've already done Love though, in another thread) but there are lots of others to hold on to.

    "Feelings" by Morris Albert, "Feelings, nothing more than feelings, trying to forget my feelings of love....:

    "Beautiful, Beautiful Brown Eyes'" Lyrics by Roy Acuff, "I'll never love blue eyes again...."

    "Rings on Her Fingers and Bells on Her Toes " Written in 1909 "She shall have music wherever she goes...."

    Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair" Written by Stephen Foster, 1854. "I dream of Jeannie with the light brown hair, borne like a vapor on the summer air...."

    I Get the 'Blues' When it Rains" Sung by Lefty Frizzel/Judy Garland/Jim Reeves

    "Most 'Happy' Fella" A 1956 Broadway musical, "Standing on the corner, watching all the girls go by...."

    " 'Body' and 'Soul' by Billie Holiday, about 1930.

    "I Get So 'Lonely' When I Think About You' " Recorded by The Four Knights/The Everly Brothers

    Hi GB - great idea for a new game.

    "Brown-eyed Girl" by Van Morrison

    Does anyone remember that one?

    Hi Windblade! Hope you enjoy doing this one. Do you have any more game ideas?

    I don't remember what Brown Eyed Girl sounds like. I'll look for a video. GB

    GB - Actually I had this one you thought up in the back of my mind. I'll ask my DH - he's really good at thinking ones up and loves a wide span of music - from the 30's up to the present. Is there some kind of list of ones we've already done?

    "I want to hold your hand" - The Beatles

    Windblade, There is no list but if you look at the Homebound site the threads are all listed with the topics we've already done. You could maybe print out the that page, or just copy the Game Thread Titles down. There are about 50 threads. GB

    Do your ears hang low? Do they wobble to and fro?
    Can you tie them in a knot? Can you tie them in a bow. (Old campfire song.)

    Dry Bones. Fred Waring and his chorus used to sing that one. Of course it's
    on Youtube. "The knee bone's connected to the leg bone, etc."

    My Heart Cries For You. Guy Mitchell had a popular recording of same
    when I was a kid. In fact, he sang lotsa good songs.

    Let a Smile be Your Umbrella. Sung by the great crooners Bing C. and Perry C.

    And from Josh Groban's big hit:

    You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
    You raise me up to walk on stormy seas;
    I am strong when I am on your shoulders;
    You raise me up to more than I can be.

    Another good musical topic, GB.

    I hope everyone enjoys this one. It gives me a lift to see all the songs. I'm having a bad day today, lots of pain and can't sleep. I'll be back tonight to post some more. Glad you are all here. GB

    Hi ALL!

    The first thing that came to mind --

    Human, The Human League, 1986

    "... I'm only human
    Of flesh and blood I'm made
    Born to make mistakes ...

    Trying to think of more songs, for this topic!

    "I'm only human, I'm just a woman.
    Help me believe in what I could be
    And all that I am.
    Show me the stairway, I have to climb.
    Lord for my sake, teach me to take
    One day at a time."

    From "One Day at a Time", written by Kris Kristofferson and Marijohn Wilkin. Two 12
    steppers. In fact, the song is the 12 step program set to music. Marijohn Wilkin was
    also a co-writer of other hits such as "Waterloo" and "The Long Black Veil".

    Happy Days Are Here Again. A cheerful tune that Barbra Streisand turned into a dirge.
    Crying by Roy Orbison.
    " in the Chapel.
    " " " Rain. (Probably lots of other crying songs.)

    Hope you're feeling better today, GB. Diane, that video you posted made me think of
    the movie Avatar. Weird, blue people. Or maybe they weren't people?

    Thanks Rock, I am feeling better. I hadn't been sleeping well and was hurting more.

    "Do your ears hang low" made me think of one by Fats Waller called "Your feet's too big". This would be one strange looking person! :)

    Hi to Soul, Diane, and Judy! GB

    More songs:

    "When You're Smiling" Made famous by Louis Armstrong "The whole world smiles with you......"

    "Put on a Happy Face" "Gray skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face."

    "Happiness is Just a Thing Called Joe" Sung by Bette Middler/Ella Fitzgerald/Judy Garland "He's got a smile that make the lilacs want to grow.."

    "When Irish Eyes are Smiling" A tribute to Ireland, "There's a tear in your eye and I'm wondering why cause it shouldn't be there at all"

    "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" Sung by The Platters in the 1950's. They asked me how I knew my true love was true, I of course replied, something here inside cannot be denied...."

    "Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue" (Has anybody seen my gal?) Written in 1922, "Turned up nose, turned down hose, flapper, yes sir one of those has anybody seen my gal?"

    Hi Folks

    Tried to do this yesterday. Got interrupted. Then I ran outta steam. Anyhoo...

    My Heart Cries For You. Another Guy Mitchell recording. Wikipedia says it is
    based on an old French tune.
    A Little Bitty Tear Let Me Down. Recorded by Burl Ives.
    The Hokey Pokey. Ya hear the joke about the funeral of the
    guy what wrote the song?

    Kitty Well recorded This White Circle meaning the one on her wedding ring finger.
    Only the Lonely lyrics refer to the heart as do 2 million other songs.
    Hank Snow recorded These Hands. Hank's voice reminds me of Roy
    Orbison's; both had sort of a dark tenor sound.

    Happy Listening

    Foxy foxtrot and his elastic legs, Dutch song from the seventies.

    And this one came to mind reading the description too:
    Andy Williams - Feelings (1975)

    Lonely Feet. A song from the 30s written by Jerome Kern and recorded by
    Kitty Carlisle Hart. I have a recording of it somewhere. I think the feet
    were lonely 'cause they had nobody to dance with.

    Crying in the Chapel. A big hit in the 50s. Recorded by lots of folks
    including Elvis, the Platters and Little Richard.

    Crying, a big 60s hit for Roy Orbison in who was one of the writers.

    Coming Through the Rye; verse by Robert Burns. "If a body meet a body,
    coming through the rye." The "rye' refers to a field of grain rather than
    a bottle of booze. Some people think the title "Catcher in the Rye" refers
    to this song.

    I Get So Lonely When I Dream About You. Recorded by various
    including the Statler Brothers. I saw them in a concert with Johnny
    Cash and June Carter in 1967. Everyone of us is now retired or dead.

    I'll go to my grave loving you, another song sung by the Statler Bros.
    Like many of their songs it was written by some of their members.

    Happy listening
