"Pop Goes the Weasel" by 3rd Bass

You can't go to a Sam Goody any more, but you can get online, which you couldn't do in the early '90s. Here's how I hear it:

"Online with the search in the hoodie with a woody, get a disco tape at Sam Goody."

" Rocket Man " -Elton John

"Mars ain't the kind of place to raise a kid

Infact, it's cold as hell "

Or any number of those 'spacey' 70's tunes a la Bowie , etc . that had us way out there in terms of space exploration .There is no serious manned space program and we aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

a few that just pop into my head ...

Happy Together - The Turtles

"If I should call you up, invest a dime"

Went up to a quarter in the early 80's

Kodachrome - Paul Simon

"Photograph" Company Kodak filed for bankruptcy recently

Nobody Home - Pink Floyd

"Got thirteen channels of sh** on the T.V. to choose from" T.V.'s used to have dials, one VHF, with numbers 2-13 (so really only 12 channels), and a letter U for UHF and one UHF numbers 14-82. Most people in the late 70's only had VHF.

When this song released, about 80% homes had 12 channels, today basic broadcast reception (antennas) have more than 12 channels available

and only 10% of the population receive this.

Hey, little girl

Comb your hair, fix your makeup

Soon he will open the door

Don't think because there's a ring on your finger

You needn't try any more

For wives should always be lovers too

Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you

I'm warning you.

Day after day

There are girls at the office

And men will always be men

Don't send him off with your hair still in curlers

You may not see him again...

Hey, little girl

Better wear something pretty

Something you'd wear to go to the city

And dim all the lights,

Pour the wine, start the music

Time to get ready for love...

Time to get ready...

Jack Jones

"Wives & Lovers"

single, Kapp 551, 1963

Written by Bacharach & David

Talk about the feminine mystique! Back when this was written, a girl was anyone under thirty and the key to life was "getting" and "keeping" a man.

Today, the "girl" wouldn't appreciate being called that, and she probably either owns her own business or is out working two jobs of her own just to live and pay the bills.

I don't care for women who let themselves go as soon as a ring is on their finger. Why do you think divorce rates are so high? A man doesn't want a woman who acts like she doesn't need to try anymore. Either he kicks her to the curb or he finds lovin' somewhere else.

(And vice-versa, of course)

This song has more relevance than you think! :wink:

Point being? :laughing:

I did point out it happened the other way around as well. Hell, women will trade in for a 95 year old just because they want a quick buck. Isn't there a word for women who sleep with guys for money? :grin:

ps: aren't there dishes that need washing and dinner to be cooked? :laughing:

What hair? I had my head shaved to help beat the heat. As far as ripped tees I no longer own any. I'm a has-been rocker, my clothes are in fine condition, the slightest blemish and into the dumpster they go (I have OCD), as far as cologne I do not own any. My natural scent is far superior to any Old Spice product :wink:

As far as my cooking goes, you'll be so sick you won't notice the dishes! :laughing:

Put another log on the fire.

Cook me up some bacon and some beans.

And go out to the car and change the tyre.

Wash my socks and sew my old blue jeans.

Come on, baby, you can fill my pipe,

And then go fetch my slippers.

And boil me up another pot of tea.

Then put another log on the fire, babe,

And come and tell me why you're leaving me.

Now don't I let you wash the car on Sunday?

Don't I warn you when you're gettin fat?

Ain't I a-gonna take you fishin' with me someday?

Well, a man can't love a woman more than that.

Ain't I always nice to your kid sister?

Don't I take her driving every night?

So, sit here at my feet 'cos I like you when you're sweet,

And you know it ain't feminine to fight.

So, put another log on the fire.

Cook me up some bacon and some beans.

Go out to the car and lift it up and change the tyre.

Wash my socks and sew my old blue jeans.

Come on, baby, you can fill my pipe,

And then go fetch my slippers.

And boil me up another pot of tea.

Then put another log on the fire, babe,

And come and tell me why you're leaving me.

Maybe not "all wrong," but communication sure has changed since 1991 when Oleta Adams sang "Get Here" (written by Brenda Russell)

The song covers various ways to reach a loved one back when it was a challenge:

You can reach me by railway

You can reach me by trailway

You can reach me on an airplane

And while showing up in person is not easy, I wonder if this song could be written today in the world of Skype, Facetime and all the other advances we used to see only at EPCOT Center.
