Write one line of a song, preferably the second line.

Then others add a line, either the first line or third and so on.

Do not Google for clues. These are from memory, for fun.

I'm writing the first line here, because the second line would give it away too much.

"This old man, he played one..."

This Old Man, he played one.
He played knick-knack on my thumb.
With a knick-knack, paddy whack,
Give your dog a bone.
This Old Man came rolling home.

"This Old House" was a big hit for Rosemary Clooney when I was in high school. (The
Fabulous 50s.) Some gal (Can't remember her name, but she had terrific stage presence.)
and I lip synched to it. The act was going swimmingly until my beard started to fall off.
I just sorta chewed on it to prevent same. The audience was enthralled with our
performance and indicated its approval by hooting and laughing.

I think it was the following year in the Jr or Sr Class Play. I was a busy thespian in those
days despite having no acting ability whatsoever. Well, most boys were too shy and to
afraid of forgetting their lines to get up on the stage. Anyhooo, in the play I was supposed to be middle aged and chubby. I wore a pair of my dad's pants with a pillow enhancer. This
time it was the pants that started to fall down. More laughs.

Ah, memories.

BTW, Rosemary (who is the aunt of heartthrob George Clooney) also had a hit with
"Come On A My House". I always thought if she wanted another hit, she should have
recorded "Bless This House".

Rock, I remember Rosemary Clooney, we were talking about her on another thread. Remembering "Hit Parade" and Ted Mack Amateur Hour.. Bet you remember those too!

Rosemary had a sister named Betty who also was a singer and George's dad, Nick was the host on one of the movie channels a few years ago. Talented family.

Getting nervous here. We're under a severe thunderstorm warning and a tornado watch and the tornado warning area is getting closer. Guess I'd better turn off the computer. Later. GB66

Be safe gb!

We've got a beautiful remix going :p

I guess the saints don't need this house no longer :D

Oh when the Saints go marching, oh when the Saints go marching in...

Then Gb's song:

"Moonlight and love songs, never out of date ....."

It does bring up a tune but I doubt it is the right one once again :p And yet again a hard time getting any words...

... all kinds of anything... duh duh duh duh duhhhhhh duh...

A clue for the song: "moonlight and love songs never out of date..."
'Casablanca'

hearts full of passion, jealousy and hate
woman loves man and man must have his mate
that no one can deny.

(boy, I used to sing that at piano bars, but do you think I can remember it now?)

It's still the same old story, a fight for love and glory, a case of do or die,
the world will always welcome lovers, as time goes by.

(well......it's slowly coming back to me, but I don't dare try to repair this post because it's taken me 4 times of saving changes and trying to type more)

Freida,

You are right. It is "As Time Goes By". One of my favorite songs. It's also the theme music for one of my favorite British Sitcoms, aptly named As Time Goes By, starring Judi Dench.

Lord I want to be in that number,
When the saints go marching in.

Just sang that one with the residents last Wednesday! How "ironical". LOL :)

They used to write songs with great lyrics. A relatively modern song with
beautiful words is "The Rose" by Amanda McBroom.

As for "Moonlight and Roses", I kinda think the next phrase is "Bring
wonderful memories of you". Don't remember what comes after that.

There is a fairly new song I like called "Bright Blue Rose". Great melody.
The words, however, do not fit the melody line and make no sense whatsoever.
Even the title makes no sense.

"As time goes by" is another song with great lyrics. It was written before the
movie by a guy with a name like Hupfield (I think). Recently read a book about movie
composers. The author said Max Steiner, who wrote the score for Casablanca, did
not want the song included in the pic.

Freida,

This is so much fun! Music elicits so many wonderful memories. Like smells bring back memories......the smell of bread fresh out of the oven, and the smell of lilacs. These always bring back to me good memories. I use music as a tool a great deal in my work. A resident with dementia may forget how to do many things, may forget who people are, or where they are.......but if you once begin to sing a chorus of "You Are My Sunshine", it's totally amazing to watch the lights go on and the resident begin to sing with you. Music is great medicine! :) For all of us.
