Weekly Song Challenge, Week 8!

Time once again for Mary B’s Weekly Song Challenge! She gives us three prompts, we come up with a song to satisfy each of them.

A Body Part: The T-Bones, "No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach’s In)." Used in an Alka-Seltzer commercial in the ’60’s.

A Flower: Groucho Marx, "Show Me A Rose"

An Instrumental: Acoustic Alchemy, "Casino"

And that’s this week’s Weekly Song Challenge. Time to blow this popsicle stand!

Weekly Song Challenge: Week 7

Time for Mary B’s Weekly Song Challenge! She gives us three prompts, we give her one song for each. Easy? Yes! Fun? You betcha!

A spice: Since "Sugar And Spice" by the Cryan’ Shames probably won’t work, how about "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band" by The Beatles?

A tree: Since you’re probably tired of hearing The Manhattan Transfer’s "Poinciana," how about Kenneth McKellar with the beautiful "The Rowan Tree"?

A unit of measure: Rolling Stones, "Heart of Stone" (1 stone=14 lb. or 6.4 kg)

And that’s the Weekly Song Challenge. Time to make like a banana and split!

Weekly Song Challenge, Week 6

Time for the Weekly Song Challenge! Mary B has the rules and prompts over at her place. I’d like to welcome Birgit, who’s doing the challenge for the first time today.

An acoustic song: Tommy Emmanuel and Frank Vignola, "Swing 42," an old Django Reinhardt tune.

A song from a movie: Theme song from the 1963 movie Charade, starring Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, and Walter Matthau. Music by Henry Mancini, lyrics by Johnny Mercer. It doesn’t get much better.

A song about cheating: The Free Movement, "I’ve Found Someone Of My Own"

Your turn!

Weekly Song Challenge, Week 5

A Feeling: Tiny Hill & His Orchestra, "Angry." A song my aunts sing all the time.

A Fruit: Perez Prado, "Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White."

A Vegetable: Doris Day with Les Brown & His Band Of Renown, "Celery Stalks At Midnight."

And there you have it. See you next week!
