It actually bit her ankle and she did exactly what you're NOT supposed to do. She ran home. You're supposed to lie still and let your companion go for help. She panicked. The girls were about 12 years old at the time so I can understand how they reacted. Thankfully, when my sister found the one in our watermelon patch, she wasn't bitten. It was just a little one though. Grandma killed it with a shovel. GB
28. When she comes: She'll be driving 6 white horses when she comes.....
29. Bet your bottom dollar.....
30. Your huddled masses yearning to breath free, the wretched refuse of you teeming shore, send these the homeless tempest tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door. (Hope that's right). (Beautiful words and still true today).
31. Of the coming of the Lord, He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.....
GB and Rock - I have a rather eclectic taste in music and was raised on everything from classical through jazz/swingtime/big bands through Perry Como and Peggy Lee and the like, and on into the pop/rock/disco of the 70's. Around the early 90's I quit listening to pop and went back to 60's and 70's music.
As for the Verdi Requiem, I performed in it in 2011 in a 10-year remembrance of 9-11. We also performed the Mozart Requiem that year. I can still sing most of both of them by heart (yep, including the Dies Irea!).
36 I'm not the first to know there's just no getting over you...hopelessly devoted to you. Be darned if I can remember who sings it.
37 Don't need to be coy, Roy, just get yourself free 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover - Paul Simon
Yep Duckie. Olivia Newton John sang 'Hopelessly Devoted to You' in Grease.
My favorite music when I was a teen, was classical piano. I had a record of Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto #2 that I listened to almost every day. I think I was obsessed with it. It was by the Philadelphia Orchesta with Eugene Ormandy conducting and Eugene Istomin on the piano. I completely wore out the record but was able to replace it a few years ago with a copy from ebay! Then, I had to buy a little record player (turn table) for it. GB
GB, you got 27 through 32 correct. Is "Fall in love" correct for number 33? Don't know
Duckie, I agree; very eclectic. Btw. I don't think they used electricity in recording until
the mid 1920s. Olivia Newton John sang Hopelessly Devoted in Grease. I read Sandy
was from a Catholic school in the stage production, but in the movie they moved her
all the way to Australia. Funny, she didn't talk like an Aussie.
We played "Give Me Your Tired" in band, but we knew nothing about the song. I
assumed it was like most patriotic songs: old. But it was actually from a 1949 Musical
by Irving Berlin. I used to have the record. I could only find two good songs in the
score. The other one was Let's Take An Old Fashioned Walk. You can hear the original singers on You Tube. Name of the musical is Miss Liberty.
Number 34 is Harbor Lights. and # 35. is Born to be Wild!
The others are all correct.
Rock, We sang Give Me Your Tired in jr. high school chorus. It's a moving song. We had a program with lots of patriotic music. It was called 'Let Your Light'. All about the statue of libertey. I wonder if they still do that kind of music in school? GB
38 And I'd give the world if I could hear her sing that song today. Haven't heard
"Too Ra Loo Ra Loo La" for decades. Used to have lots of Irish and Scottish records including one by Bing Crosby that included this old favorite. Like my surname,
Crosby is both Irish and Scottish. My great-great-grandfather came from Ireland.

40. If you ever go down Trinidad, they make you feel so very glad
39 is Peggy Lee - Fever
40 is Rum and Coca Cola - The Andrews Sisters. Quite a racy song for its time.
43 When tears are in your eyes I'll dry them all - Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel
44 From up and down and still somehow it's cloud's illusions I recall - Both Sides Now - covered by lots of folks
Nice to hear from you. If there were an award for doin' a lot of typing, you'd win. How popular are songs from here in your neck of the woods?
Duckie is right about Bridge Over Troubled Water and Both Sides Now. The latter was written by Joni Mitchell and made famous by Judy Collins. I first heard it in a hotel
room with a small group following a concert. A gal sat on a bed and sang it while
playing a guitar that looked too big for her.
Duckie, speaking of racy songs, I realized only recently that a favorite old song has
a double entendre. "You can go as far as you like with me in my merry Oldsmobile".
Pretty sporty for 1905, huh?

Hi Duckie, Wow, that's a bunch of 'em. And most I don't know.
51 where to go, why not go where fashion sits, Putting On the Ritz. From the
movie Blue Skies. My mother had the album. In those days (the 1940s) an album
was two or three 78 rpm records that came in a book. The book was made of
cardboard covers and paper holders for each record.
52 in my career. Send in the Clowns. The only Stephen Sondheim song I like.
53. So Hush Little Baby, Don't you cry. From Porgy and Bess. The musical appeared
on Broadway in the 30s. Half a century later it was done at The Met.
Hi everybody! The only one I know is 54, Locomotion. I knew 52 and 53 but Rock beat me to it.
And #46. See the pyramids along the Nile, watch the sunrise on a desert isle. By the way, #9 is When you wore a tulip a sweet yellow tulip and I wore a big red rose, and #34 is I saw the harbor lights, they only told me we were parting. GB
