ROCKOLLECTIONS: HAS SPRING SPRUNG?

Has Spring Sprung?
That is a real question not only here in the still unseasonably cool East, but all across the country- some States are still getting Snow!
But I am not complaining, mind you, lol!
Spring will go on, but I have to stop this Series sometime, so this is the first of the last two Chapters.
We have firmly established a link between Spring and Love, and I will continue with some of that.
I'll have some Love At First Sight songs for you.
Then the thought that was triggered by the Dusty Springfield song I played a few weeks ago...where she mentioned Going To A Dance.
Do people go to Dances anymore?
Used to be a great way to meet members of the opposite sex!
Plus a look at some Spring Activities, things that are Picture Postcard Perfect for the Season!
One song in particular that I love, and brings back a bunch of Happy Memories for me.
I think you will like this Spring Episode.
If you don't...oh even if you do...you can Go Fly A Kite, lol!
 
Here are the links to listen, Love and Spring Activities for you, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

And That's why it is NOT on it Stanley!
It is on Help, lol!

That's why, I have the Brit edit.

Jon,

If it is a U.S. version, it would be the FIRST song!

If not, then it will be on the British release of the Help album.

I have Rubber Soul but don't remember that song...

Jon,
Stay on those drugs, they make you happier and nicer and easier to please, lol!
You even liked John Denver, who got a bad rap for far too long.
Won't stop me playing him when I want.
Technically that Beatles song from Help wasn't on the U.S. release of that album, but rather we had to wait for Rubber Soul to get here- so in a way you are correct in detecting I guess a later sound.
You are also smart enough to spell Taj Mahal.
So how come....oh never mind, LOL!
I haven't played Taj Mahal in many years, but I have played him in the older past- the pre-computer shows.
Now I prefer the later Beatles too, but when I go back to their early stuff I am never disappointed!
So the drugs don't matter to them.
Just to you, LOL!
Thanks my man, for the listen and writing,
Mike

RJ,
Besides making you famous, I am starting to feel you are my co-host, lol!
And those staple Beatles will always figure in these shows.
I thought most people would be familiar with a lot of the songs I played in this one...well, maybe half the episode anyway!
It's Taj Mahal, and Jon spelled it correctly!
Just adding fuel to the feud, lol!
Now I am not afraid to play two songs by the same artist in a single show, but that Golden Pell winner made me pause- could I, should I, play Springtime For Hitler?
I mean, everybody is so sensitive and whiney these days.
And as always, I just go ahead and do it anyway, lol!
After all, it was by Mel Brooks not me!
You must remember it- it was in the brilliantly funny movie The Producers, with Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel!
I don't know what Mel would say to an accuser, but I bet it would be good, lol!
Too bad I talked over it, and it was a stroke of luck that when I stopped you heard Mel Brooks himself!
I'll send you the complete song.
For sentimental and musical reasons, I would have Pelled the Free Design!
Thanks for the listen and writing,
Mike

I liked this show, especially the John Denver song and that Beatles song from "Help". Sounded like something that came out much later than "Help". Taj Mahal was cool, don't think you've ever played anything by him on your show before? Could have, just don't remember it. THe only song I could have done without is the second Beatles song, just can't get into that earlier stuff. Beatles & drugs + good. Beatles & no drugs=not so good.

Therefore, drugs are good?

Hey Mike, thanks for the mention.  And you gave us two staples for the price of one.  That's one thing I dig about your style, you are not afraid to play two songs by the same artist in a single show.  Of course, I'm referring to the Beatles.

I'm actually familiar with most of what you played.  The John Denver tune was new to me.  As were the tunes by Free Design and Taj Ma Hal (no idea how you spell that).  

All that being said, I'm giving the Golden Pell to Mel Brooks.  I may have heard that before, but I don't remember it.  What do you think Mel would say to someone that accused him of not being politically correct?

Great show Mike.
