Classic Rock Bottom


This is the beginning of Love and Marriage, a Theme I may have no right doing, having never exchanged those Official Vows.
Then again, it may afford me a perspective that comes at it from a different angle from those who have previously been or currently are Married.
I picked June to do this because there are more Weddings this month than any other.
We have all heard of June Brides.
Strangely, there are also more Divorces in June than any other month- but that's another story, lol!
And it's not like I have never been to a Wedding or know nothing about them, but I thought I'd step back and come at it from the point of view of an Outsider.
Beginning with those You Came Along first steps that lead people Down The Aisle.
And I must thank a fellow named Don and a Group I belong to for a song I thought I had, couldn't find, and was provided with by.
A song I considered vital to this Opener.
I don't know how long this Series will go, probably beyond June, but I can promise you Surprises along the way, a lot of them.
Starting with this Maiden Voyage, so please join me!

Get me to the church on time, lol!
I had never heard that song by The Forrester Sisters until the guy recommended it to me.
It was such an obvious song to play next I had to go with it.
Happy you dug the Diana Krall, Manhattan Transfer and Beach Boys tracks- I did, lol!
And the Golden Pell to Etta James, a surprise!
I was HOPING I Choose You, that would have been my pick.
A good portion of my staples.
I agree, Love songs are generally sappy- that's why I classify them as Love and Love Lost.
Love Lost ones are almost always more poetic and emotional, far more touching.
But that I Choose You gets to me.
At the moment, there are no plans for divorce and splitting up- that would be anti what I am playing..
And I have my hands full with Marriage songs, lol!
But I can get spontaneous, so one never knows.
Now Drinking, that's a Series of its own!
Been thinking about it for a long time, may get to it someday!
Thanks for the listen and writing, leave a nice gift, lol,

I finally got part one in.  I dig the opener, always have.  And I've heard that Beatles tune, it's okay to me.

The "I Choose You" song was lyrically good.  My theory later.

Never really cared for that song by The Forrester Sisters.  My theory later.

Diana Krall, great voice.  And the Manhattan Transfer track as well as the Beach Boys track were both quite good.

But I'll give the Golden Pell to Etta James.  Really good song.

Staples: Beatles, Rankin, Beach Boys.

My theory:  Love songs are generally sappy.  I like approximately one love song for every 10 heartbreak songs.  So hopefully there is gonna be a segment on divorce and splitting and all that.  Maybe one on drinking, which a spouse can certainly drive a spouse into doing.

Hell, I am a lot slow today, it's 90 degrees here, lol!

My computer I think, it seems to be a bit slow today.

The buffering at Podomatic or on your end?

Comment by RJhog (Admin) on June 18, 2014 at 3:11pm

Once again, I can't listen right now because of the stream buffering.  That's okay, I'll try tomorrow to get both halves in.

That one he famously re-recorded.

Think I used the one from the 50's.

Not sure, as I have said before I don't LIKE Sinatra as a person, lol!

Comment by Jon on June 17, 2014 at 7:31pm

Yep, still Frank but different. I could swear he did re-record certain songs throughout the years some more than once.

After my government-funded operation, THEN i will be ways the bridesmaid, never the bride- thanks taxpayers, lol!
Is that right, the version used in "Married With Children" is different than the version I played here?
Didn't notice, but they only played a bit of the song and I haven't seen it in a long time.
I was feeling pretty mellow when I did the first half, I was tired and dragging, but that's what I like about it.
I do the same show a different day and it turns out another way.
Come on man, tell me your wedding party story!
I am sure I will be revealing things about myself during the course of this unending series.
Not only do I have a "circle", but a "square & compass" too, lol!
I am a man of many secrets, letting things out a little at a time.
Thanks for the listen and writing buddy,

Poor Mike. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. 

The version used in "Married With Children" is different than the version you played here.

This was a cool show, pretty darn mellow.

Maybe during this series I'll tell you my wedding party story. Maybe I won't. Just depends on how I feel, right now I'm not feeling it.

You have a "circle". Wow.
