Classic Rock Bottom


Well, we have made great progress in the last week with Building A House.
As I said at the top of the show, maybe it's because that NSA Invasion Of Our Privacy has made people cut down on their interfering Phone Calls to me.
I can get some damn work done, lol!
Since you build from the bottom up, we are putting the Finishing Touches on the Roof.
And I will be getting serious on you with some of the Song Selections.
Interestingly, when I started this Building A House Series, I thought it would be a very light-hearted Musical Look & Listen.
But the deeper I get into it, the more I discover how thoughtful and touching songs about Houses can be.
We'll talk about that later.
For now, please enjoy the Music!
Here are the links to listen, and if like me you don't like heights we'll get off the Roof quickly and go back inside, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

I must say that I concur with Jon's assessment, no bad songs here, even Clapton.

The first song I thought of regarding roofs was "the roof, the roof, the roof is on fire, we don't need no water "and so forth and so on.  The second song was "Up On The Roof", but not the JT version.  Still a good choice though.

Believe it or not, the Golden Pell was a tough choice today.  I wanted to go with the Grateful Dead because of those harmonies.  It is very Beach Boys"ish".  And I believe that's one of the two songs that I heard a while back that made me challenge you to this theme.  But since I have heard it, albeit just once, I'll send that GP to The Supreme's.   That's a great little song.  

For some reason, the show cut out about half way through the song that followed Clapton, so I didn't hear who any of the artists in the last set or song titles were.

Oh that's right, the city that is sadly disappearing.

The next part will rock more.
You liked the Rosemary Clooney song, but diidn't notice the filth.
We sure are lucky here to have you looking out for us, no corrupting our minds allowed, lol!
You thought the Supremes WERE really good.
Although American Beauty and a few others are favorites, I too find I am liking the Grateful Dead more fan as I age- though not as much as I feel that way about Van Morrison.
Wouldn't call them mellow though, not with songs like Turn On Your Lovelight.
Now this is funny: Kate & Ashley Olson, lol!
You know that was Kate & Anna McGarrigle!
Scott McKenzie did something pretty unique through his career, I don't know of anyone else doing it- and I have been trying to find a place to play them since he died not long ago.
Glad you felt Clapton wasn't too bad.
You know many winos, lol?
Thanks for listening and writing, you were the first one in,

Really not a bad song out of the whole bunch! I like the Rosemary Clooney song, made me wanna snap my fingers. Didn't notice the filth though.

Not a hiuge fan of James Taylor, but the song was ok. Supremes was really good and Grateful Dead was allright. I think I'm becoming more of a Grateful Dead fan as I age, don't know what it is. Maybe because they're mellow? 

The Kate & Ashley Olson song was really good, surprised I liked something from those two. Thought they just didn't eat, didn't know they sang too!

 The song from that San Fran guy was ok, mayne there's a reason why he had only one hit? 

As for Clapton, I can take some of his stuff, others I can just give away to a wino. This song wasn't too bad though.
