I worked with this guy who claimed he had a perfect system for winning at roulette in Las Vegas. It took him 45 minutes to explain it, and I can’t remember any of it. We were having our big user conference in Las Vegas one year, and he gave someone he worked with (I worked in a different office from him) $20 and explicit instructions on how to play it. Needless to say, she lost it all on the first ball.
Anyway, I had two candidates for my Song Lyric Sunday entry yesterday. The one I didn’t use ended up being a good start for this round of YouTube Roulette. Each song led to another, and they all seemed to be from the late ’60’s and early ’70’s.
I’ll just list them out, in the interest of time…
- The Five Americans, "Western Union"
- Every Mother’s Son, "Come On Down To My Boat"
- Keith, "98.6"
- The Cyrkle, "Red Rubber Ball"
- Cliff Nobles, "The Horse"
- The Monkees, "Mary, Mary"
- Harry Nilsson, "Everybody’s Talkin’"
- Mark Lindsay, "Arizona"
- The Fortunes, "You’ve Got Your Troubles"
- The Grass Roots, "Midnight Confessions"
- The Stone Poneys, "Different Drum"
- Oliver, "Good Morning Starshine"
Also, if it’s not too much trouble, I have a Battle of the Bands going on right now, so if you’d be so kind and stop by there and share your opinion. Thanks!
That’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for October 18, 2021.
