MMMM: “Pumpkin Spice”

Image by bricketh from Pixabay

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!

PPenny LaneThe Beatles1967
UUncle Albert/Admiral HalseyPaul McCartney1971
MMama Told Me (Not To Come)Three Dog Night1970
PPeople Got To Be FreeThe Rascals1968
KKind of a DragThe Buckinghams1967
II’m A BelieverThe Monkees1967
NNa Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)Steam1969
SSugar, SugarThe Archies1969
PPaint It, BlackThe Rolling Stones1966
II’m Henry the Eighth, I AmHerman’s Hermits1965
CCherishThe Association1966
EEverything Is BeautifulRay Stevens1970

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.

Monday’s Music Moves Me is sponsored by X-Mas Dolly, Cathy, Alana, and Stacy, so be sure and visit them, where you can also find the Linky for the other participants.

  1. Knew them all (no surprise to you, I’m sure). After reading Songbird’s post, I was all primed to hear The Monkees. Actually, I like almost all your selections but my favorite, besides The Monkees, was Cherish. Love The Association – had one of their albums. Alana ramblinwitham


  2. John,

    I went with the longer form as you and we didn’t cross on a single song. I love building acrostic music sets. I’m delighted you pitched this as your last theme for October. I scrolled through your song list and I recognize many if not all of them. Now, I’m just going to listen to the set while I do other things. Thanks for being an honorary co-host this month. As always, it was a pleasure to have you on board and if you’d like to do it again in 2022 then let me know. 😉 Have a boogietastic week, my friend!
