This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Busch Bavarian Beer.
Found some more beer commercials!
Looks like temperatures are going down around here. Fall really does start September 1.
Not much else to say, so here’s the summary…
- (Song Lyric) Sunday: “Manha de Carnaval”
- Monday: Blood Sweat & Tears, “And When I Die/One Room Country Shack”
- Tuesday: Little Milton, “Grits Ain’t Groceries”
- Wednesday: Patsy Cline, “She’s Got You”
- Thursday: Danny Kalb, “I Can’t Be Satisfied”
- Friday: José Feliciano, “Hi-Heel Sneakers”
- Saturday: Leo Kottke, “Pamela Brown”
Freebie day, and I followed Cathy’s lead and shared an album, Time Peace: The Rascals’ Greatest Hits. Tomorrow, "National Boss/Employee Exchange Day – Songs about filling another person’s work shoes or in general for those who don’t work outside the home." Whatever that means…
We were asked if we believe in soul-mates, three scents we like, some things I do even though I’m too old, and what food we will not share.
Numbers 11 thru 20 of the 1979 year-end Hot 100. This week, we reach the ’80’s.
I thought the picture was of a long-haired cat that had been shaved, but evidently, the cat was wearing a sweater. In any event, the cat didn’t look too happy. I wrote about our experiences with medium-haired cats, whose fur gets badly matted and tangled unless you brush it every day.
I only summarized one episode, Season 1, Episode 20, "It Takes A Thief…Sometimes." One of the guest stars in that episode was Michael Constantine, who passed away this week. Another was Claudine Longet, who a few years later was accused of murdering her boyfriend, Spider Savitch. She was later acquitted.
I shared a line that came up in conversation that I thought was hilarious.
The songs I chose were all instrumentals.
The general consensus was that people preferred Toots Thielemans to play the harmonica rather than the guitar, even though, as my uncle Jack said, it looked like he was eating an ear of corn.
Leroy Anderson, who wrote some memorable light orchestral pieces, was the featured artist.
The prompt was "where," and as yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, many people wrote about their thoughts. I chose not too, and just went wandering around until I could find a place for Connie Francis’s "Where The Boys Are."
