Classic Rock Bottom

Exactly one week ago it was All Saints Day.
I pulled out a bunch of songs in acknowledgement, and I am not the kind of guy to just put them back unplayed- there were too many good ones in there.
However you feel about Saints is not important, although I would be shocked if you disliked them- there's no good reason for that.
Believe or disbelieve, it's all just Music!
And you have to admit, it was a challenging subject for a Rock & Roll show.
Give me a Subject and I'll give you a Series, lol!
I'll cheat a little by using a Saint's name, but in Spanish for a couple of songs.
That's St. Francis' picture above, the kindly man famously known for his love of Animals and who has many Animal and Bird Hospitals named after him, more so now than ever.
In fact, on his Feast Day you are allowed to bring your pets into Church to be blessed.
The whole point is to have fun, and I promise you will be pleasantly surprised by the number of Big-Name Musical Artists I have chosen for this episode and the next.
The first order of business...let's get those Saints To Come Marching In!
Enjoy!

RJ,
Too bad you don't like When The Saints Go Marching In, but you are right, I couldn't NOT play it.
And the Isleys really do rock it up, best I can think of.
The Saints Are Coming seemed like the logical song to play next, and that is quite a collaboration between Green Day & U2.
But if you can, give a listen to The Skids who did it originally.
Ah, maybe I'll send it, lol.
Been very busy lately though, but that's aqgood thing.
The Richie Havens version of San Francisco Bay Blues was the first I ever heard, I thought it was his song.
What a great album that Mixed Bag is.
I always wanted to call my show Mixed Bag but somebody here in NYC has it, and they have had it for years.
I went French with St. Louis Blues, so here comes the slightly different spelling, Ste. Genevieve.
And it's Soozie Tyrell from Bruce's E Street Band, lol!
I accept the Golden Pell on behalf of Sarah MacLachlan, St. Francis and myself.
It wasn't your Pt. 2, but glad you liked what you did, lol,
Mike

Mike,

I must say, I'm not a fan of When The Saints Go Marching In, or of New Orleans in particular (no reason), although that's certainly a song you couldn't skip. 

 

What I did like here was the next song by Greenday/U2, a song I've never heard or a collaboration I've never heard of.  That Richie Havens song was pretty cool too.  Also, the Susie Tyrell song, St. Genevieve I believe you said.

 

But, the Golden Pell goes to..........................

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sara McLaughlin and The Prayer Of St. Francis.  That's just beautiful, even if I can't spell her last name.

 

Nice show my man!
