In The Wee, Wee Hours #socs

Of course, when I saw the prompt for today, my inner 12-year-old started to giggle and snicker, and I decided I had better not take this in that direction. Then I remembered an old blues number called "Wee, Wee Hours" and remembered that Eric Clapton played it at Chuck Berry’s 60th birthday concert in 1987. Johnny Johnson contributes some very tasty South Side piano, and besides Chuck and Eric, Keith Richards and Robert Cray back him up.

In the wee, wee hours
That’s when I think of you
In the wee, wee hours
That’s when I think of you
You say, but yet I wonder
If your love was ever true

In a wee little room
I sit alone and think of you
In a wee little room
I sit alone and think of you
I wonder if you still remember
All the things we used to do

One little song
For a fading memory
One little song
For a fading memory
Of the one I really love
The only one for me

Speaking of Keith Richards, did you hear that Charlie Watts will not be with The Rolling Stones on their next tour? He had some surgery and his doctor told him to take it easy. Charlie’s 80 years young…

I’m at the age when the "wee wee hours" means something completely different…

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to each week, as always, by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about Hudepohl Beer. Hudepohl Beer is 14-K, and 14-K saves the day! From the Hudepohl Brewery of Cincinnati, Ohio…

Cartoon almost looks like a Hawaiian Punch ad, doesn’t it?

  1. Nice laid back sound on that song. The title made me think of Sinatra’s “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning.” Then I found this one by Carley Simon for Sleepless in Seattle.

  2. Great song with Clapton amazing as always. I heard about Watts and thought that only ill health would slow the Stones Down. They must be the longest running rock band that never disbanded. They may have gone through a couple of changes but never disbanded…amazing. Love the beer commercial with the funky animation.

    1. The Stones have been remarkably stable. It’s been basically the same lineup for 60 years. Bill Wyman (bass) retired a few years ago, so they have a guy that travels with them on bass. Brian Jones died, Mick Taylor replaced him and quit in the mid-’70’s, and Ron Wood’s been steady since Mick left.

      Like I said, the beer ad reminds me of the Hawaiian Punch commercials.

  3. I had heard one of The Rolling Stones wouldn’t be touring but not which one. Amazing that they’re still going. Hope Charlie recovers quickly.

    1. When I think of the Stones, I tend to remember them from the early and mid ’70’s and assume they’re just frozen in time. Then I realize that was 50 years ago and that they’ve aged 50 years like I have…

    1. Do you remember Tommy Cooper? He was in the middle of his act when he died, and the audience thought it was part of the act. It took them five minutes to realize that he was actually deceased. I think a lot of performers have that attitude, that they’d like to die while they’re onstage. Seems crazy to me, but I guess that’s what makes them great performers.
