ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.9

  1. It was surprising to me in the course of this Series how difficult it was to separate Carnivals, Circuses, Arcades, Amusement Parks...and throw in Fairs!

    I have never gone to a Circus without paying to get in, I guess it is the same for Carnivals.…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.8

Hey aren't there any HAPPY Clown Songs?

I'll try with a few Ha Ha's and an early appearance in Pop Music of a Mellotron.

Did you know that Professional Clowns unofficially "Trademark" their faces by sending close-up photos of themselves in full…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.7

It is a Musical Look and Listen to Carnivals and Circuses that I have been doing these past weeks.

These next two Chapters will feature Clowns.

It was a revelation just how difficult it is to find Happy Songs about Clowns!…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.6

Continuing with Carnivals and Circuses, and it is somewhat hard to distinguish between them.

It seems to ME that Carnivals are more likely to have Rides, and Circuses Animals- they both have Daredevil Acts.

And this must be Carnivals because it's…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.5

It's a Series on Carnivals and Circuses, and I thought we'd take some Rides this time.

Like the Merry-Go-Round or Carousel- there used to be a difference but now the names are interchangeable.

It's kind of surprising just how many Songs there are…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.4

Continuing with the Circuses, if there is one name that comes to mind regarding the Big Top it is PT Barnum!

He called himself a Showman and was quite the character- doing Circus-like things for decades before actually getting involved in the Circus after he was in his 60's, and being…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.3

Last week it was Carnivals, and this week it's Circuses.

As a kid it sounds like so much fun to Run Away and Join The Circus.

But as you get older you realize it could be just a Sad Escape!

I'll talk a…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.2

I guess Carnivals and Circuses are not allowed during this pandemic, so I will provide them for you.

Which as usual conjures up some snarl in me!

I have seen many others doing soothing shows to get us through the Lockdowns- not ME,…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: CARNIVALS AND CIRCUSES PT.1

Well the Weather is warm enough here in the Northeast for Carnivals and Circuses.

I remember as a kid growing up close to the old Madison Square Garden on 49th Street.

And in late March they really did come around the neighborhood and paste…
