I love those scarf things around their necks, like Freddie on Scooby-doo.
The Grassroots stole that refrain from the Drifters I think... Sha la la la la la late at night... Wonder if they ever got sued for it.
So you chat with Sanjaya?
Inka dinka doo, a dinka dee, a dinka doo simply means inka dinka dee-a dinka doo.Isn't that right, Mrs. Calabash?
Those are some pretty groovy bands.... Jimmy Durante is vintage.
First post - new reader.I so enjoy the music videos you choose to post - I remember groovin' to the last one too (altho my mind is mush to recall artist after being on the 405 all day).It's comforting to know there was a time when the music was real, the band was live, and naked girls waited at the hotel.Those were the days....
... the walrus was Paul?
Mmmm...that's good autoharp. And buy the book.
Beat me to it Joan! Trey
I think I know who it is. :)
I always feel depressed when I see old stars like Jimmy Durante or Fred Astaire interact with the styles and culture of the late 60's and 1970's. They spent their whole lives around beautiful clothes and music only to spend their dotage confronted with a god-awful narcissistic youth culture that was bent on dispariging all that came before it. What was the matter with them, didn't they understand that sex was invented in 1963?
Yum. Lovin' Spoonful.You know that thing that Zal Yanovsky does with his feet? I've seen two bulls doing that just before they get after it.Oh, and the babes in the audience? Folks, they just don't look like that anymore. Hot. They make you think of the early pictures of Althouse.
Jeff, at the time I was mad that old guys like Durante were detracting from the mod/hippie look of it all.
So, when's it scheduled to go up? I'd like to download it as a podcast for an out-of-town trip (leaving in a little under four hours) which I'm dreading. I'm collecting podcasts on my iPod right now for purposes of distraction, self-defense and escape.Great choice, assuming I've gathered correctly who your partner is.
Joe: You're quite right. The tune in question is "I Count The Tears" by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman. Don't know if anyone got sued.
The Lovin' Spoonfull were a good band. They're obviously having fun -- and definately better live-music players than the Grass Roots were lip-sync'rs!I always wondered how, when faking a live performance, the drummers managed to look convincing without actually hitting any cymbals or drums. . . .
Check this out...An elderly Jimmy Durante singing a medley of McCartney's "Yesterday" with an earlier song of the same name.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ioG6-KQy2MYou'll get goosebumps. A master entertainer.
