We always seem to have trouble with the numbers. Good thing it
doesn't really matter much.

54 On the Avenue, the avenue, 42nd Street.

Gotta shut off the machine. It's in a sulky mood.

Nice job, Duckie

Hippity Hoppity, Easter's on its way. Big hit for Gene Autry when I was
in grade school.

Oh the Wayward Wind is a restless wind.

I think Shuffle Off to Buffalo was here before. Looks like that train pulled
out. Saw the musical on stage. It was great. And they did a wonderful train set.

I tried to correct some of my numbers but probably messed it up even more! :) Sorry about that. ( a quote from Maxwell Smart).

Hi Kids

Maxwell Smart. I remember him. Played by Don Adams on the show "Get Smart". My mother loved that show. I didn't find it funny at all. Although generally we found the
same things funny.

Used to have a Barry Manilow record. I thought it kinda funny that he didn't write "I
write the Songs". Saw him once on TV. He was so awkward and stiff I thought it was
some kind of skit. Or maybe he had a terrible case of early arthritis. The Animatronic
Mr. Lincoln at Disneyland looked more lifelike.

Wikipedia says the writer of the Manilow hit was Bruce Jonnston, a member of the
Beach Boys. He reportedly said the "I" in the title referred to God.

Make that a copy and paste award Rock :p
I can't make sense out of posts like this if I don't first combine them all. Else I just get lost...

Many international songs here Rock, the Dutch genre isn't very popular with many people and not that much broadcasted either.

Ducky is right on 47 and 48

We can keep adding GB even if someone already did, just add the next songtext line if you know it...

I don't know the song but I bet T is next for 32

Is what comes next in 43 don't be afraid?

Sorry, Soul, 54 is not the twist, it's the locomotion (Everybody's doin' a brand new dance now, Come on baby do the locomotion).

It was a 'one hit wonder' song. Little Eva was actually the babysitter. She recorded it as a demo. Nobody wanted to actually record the song for real, so it got released as it was....

Looks like GB beat me to both of the others, Simon and Garfunkel for the first, Dione Warwick for the second.

Those are correct sir!

I thought you might know #69 too. It's from a Sigmund Romberg operetta.
It goes like this: Hum hum, hum hum, hum hum: hum hum hum hum hum hum.... :)

Oh, well, now that you've hummed it, I can tell it's Deep In My Heart, Dear.
Over the 40 years that I collected records I acquired something like half a dozen
recording of The Student Prince. Sigmund Romberg's most popular work.

73 Tis a gift to be simple
74 Hear them calling you and me

75 The folks are a-singing so cheerful and gay

Computer's acting up again. Gotta go.

If necessary, also put on your thinking cap. Ha Ha!

#78 Anything goes

#79. With the blue ribbons on it while I hitch old Dobbin to the shay. Through the fields of clover we'll ride up to Dover on out golden wedding day. (My grandma used to sing that one.)

I lost my thinking cap and don't remember where to look!

Rock, I found a video of Old Grey Bonnet but couldn't get it to download. It's by a quartet, from 1909. I think it said Hayden Quartet. Maybe you could make it work?

Hi Soul
Thanks for subbing for me. A great old tune. One of my long time favorites. There is a
video on Youtube that was also a movie short. Made by the Max Fleischer Studio. Max created cartoon characters such as Popeye and Betty Boop.

Whenever these sing alongs showed up in the theater in our town, everybody sang along. Even those of us who didn't sing so well.

GB, your latest batch of answers is correctomundo.
