Weekly Song Challenge, Week 2!

Mary B has a song challenge similar to one that another blogger had been doing a while back. Mary gives us three topics or themes, and we come up with a song for each. Being a sucker for challenges like this, you know what I’m gonna do…

A Food: "Chocolate Pudding" by Ambergris. Discogs calls Ambergris "A short-lived band who made just the one album (plus some singles). They were formed by Jerry Weiss, who played trumpet and flugelhorn in the first version of Blood, Sweat & Tears." I had their one album from 1970. It was great stuff.

An Animal: "The Unicorn" by The Irish Rovers. A popular sing-along at Irish pubs from Ulster to Ulaanbaatar, this is from 1967.

A Number: "BEechwood 4-5789" by The Marvelettes. Written by Marvin Gaye back in the day when your number was two letters and five numbers.

How’d I do, Mary?

  1. What great songs and who doesn’t love the Irish Rovers. Mine would be 1. Honey, Honey by ABBA 2. White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane and 3. Mambo #5 by Lou Bega(I had to look his name up even though I love this song).

  2. I love it! Each are song’s that I’m not overly familiar with, and you know how much I love hearing/learning new to me tunes. Excellent job. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for next week’s challenge.
