10TH ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11- QUESTIONS & POETRY PT.1

September 11th, 2001 was a beautiful morning, filled with possibilities.
But then again, every morning contains those possibilities, rain or shine- the weather has nothing to do with it.
I'll open this one up with a wonderful song about each morning giving birth to you, by a sometimes duo/sometimes group that has been together for over 35 years, called Magpie.
Never heard of them, have you?
How could they have managed to remain so anonymous for so long?
That's a Question!
And that is what we will concern ourselves with in this episode of Rockollections Reflections and Remembrance.
Questions...in song...so many questions...answerable and unanswerable!
Questions we will be asking ourselves for the rest of our lives!
Some you may guess I would play, others the curveballs I like to throw you.
And somebody sent me this, they saw it on Facebook, and I think it is very clever and touching, so I pass it on to you.

RJ,
You got that right, so many questions so few answers.
But some are simple and easily answered.
I like those two harmony songs myself- particularly brothers & sisters.
Like the Burns Sisters, the Roches, Everly Brothers, etc.
And don't forget, the Beach Boys were 3 brothers and a cousin.
Let's make Magpie famous, lol!
Isn't It A Pity is long, over 7 minutes but I had to play it- and truthfully I cut some time off it with an early fade I am sure no one noticed.
Be very interesting to hear Cheap Trick do it.
I had no idea Cher was on the Alfie soundtrack when I was doing the Movies shows, which I will return to sometime.
But again, it said what I wanted said.
No kidding, you liked the Harry Chapin song most?
Has a Gospel sound, so you surprise me with your ease at embracing all styles of music again!
You are becomeing another me, lol!
I don't know what we can credit Harry Chapin with besides writing great songs & storysongs, but by all accounts, he was the nicest guy around.
He gave so much to charity, and he once said, " I do one show for me, and one for the other guy.", regarding that giving.
That's a funny line, those Beach Boys' harmonies could put a person in a coma, LOL!
And they all had big questions.
Thanks for listening and writing, you're good,
Mike

Mike,
All these questions in life.  Many will probably never be answered.

 

I do like that Magpie tune, and you are right, I've never heard of them.  I really dig the sound of two voices singing together in harmony, be it male/female, male/male or female/female.  It's just a beautiful sound, and it really shines through on this song.

 

I thought the song Isn't It A Pity was by The Beatles, which is wrong, but I was at least pretty close.  I like it, but it is a little long-winded.  Still, that would be a great song for Cheap Trick to cover.

 

I had no idea I was listening to Cher.

 

My favorite song here is I Wonder What Would Happen To This World by Harry Chapin.  Let's see, The Beatles hung the moon, John Sebastian held the ladder, what in the world did Harry Chapin do?  The vocal style of this song is just terrific.

 

And finally, The Beach Boys.  This harmonies of this song sound so good, I really think that it could put a person in a coma, and that's meant as a compliment.

 

Great show dude!
