More honoring the Saints with our Music!
St. Peter is a big-name Saint, and that photo above is the famous and beautiful Basilica named after him in Rome.
He appears in very, very, very many songs, but sometimes you have to listen for it.
That's the case with the first two songs in this chapter.
Followed by one that has his name in the title.
I'll finally get around to that All Saints Day/Halloween connection.
Then, I've talked before about how when I do these Themes, I go back mentally and try to think of the first song I can remember hearing about the selected subject.
In this case I already knew that, so what came to mind was the first Saint song I bought!
It was quite by accident- the song was included on an Oldies album I bought many years ago, and certainly not the reason I purchased that album.
But over the years it grew on me, and it was done by the very influential Doo Wop group, the Harptones.
A group that should be in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
But they aren't.
Proving again, at least to me, what a sham that place is!
By the way, I still have that album.
As all Music Collectors know, we NEVER throw anything away, lol!
Oh, and I did what I always do, I pulled out too many songs for just one hour- frankly I don't think a Theme is worth just one hour, too much would be left out.
So this will be continued next week with some real good music that you undoubtedly thought I SHOULD have played this week, lol!
But first things first, some surprises, some fun in here.
