For my last week (for now) as Guest Conductor, I had a simple request: do an acrostic, where the first letters of each song line up to spell "pumpkin spice," or "pumpkin" if you didn’t feel like finding 12 songs. Here’s my solution, using songs that reached #1 on the Hot 100 between 1965 and 1971.
I built this table with the TABLEIZER!, that takes a spreadsheet and turns it into an HTML table. Even sized all the columns!
|P||Penny Lane||The Beatles||1967|
|U||Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey||Paul McCartney||1971|
|M||Mama Told Me (Not To Come)||Three Dog Night||1970|
|P||People Got To Be Free||The Rascals||1968|
|K||Kind of a Drag||The Buckinghams||1967|
|I||I’m A Believer||The Monkees||1967|
|N||Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)||Steam||1969|
|S||Sugar, Sugar||The Archies||1969|
|P||Paint It, Black||The Rolling Stones||1966|
|I||I’m Henry the Eighth, I Am||Herman’s Hermits||1965|
|E||Everything Is Beautiful||Ray Stevens||1970|
Normally, the guest conductor displays the Linky here, but since WordPress won’t let me do it unless I give them an exorbitant amount of money, use the Linky at one of the regular conductors’ blogs. There’s a list of them down below.
And that’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for October 25, 2021.
