Back To The 60s!

For anyone who thinks this week’s music has been a little on the “quiet” side, I will admit that both Dylan and I were so focused on playing memories – the real point of all this – that the tempo didn’t really cross our minds.

Today’s medley contains more of the same but I promise you Friday’s medley is going to be a non-stop, high energy rock and roll party!

That is not to say the songs played today should be written off as “too damn mellow.” Every single song on this medley was a major hit back in the 60s, and there are sure to be many that bring back – here’s that word again – Memories!

Memories … That’s What We’re All About

    This was great! Oh my favorites again! Loved hearing the association haven’t heard that for a long time. The song by Nancy Sinatra I don’t think I’ve ever heard, but I did like it. Course the mamas and the Papas, are always a winner in my book. I loved hearing Simon and Garfunkel song. Bobby Vinton as the crooner, love him. Ending with James Brown, and I feel good! That should leave us all in a wonderful mood for the rest of the day! You did it again Ray! You’re the best! 🥰

      Sandy, thank you so much! 🥰 Knowing both Dylan and I play so many of your favorite memories means a lot. I thought ending with James Brown would be a nice way to segue into tomorrow’s rock and roll medley.
      By the way … You’re The Best! ❤️

    Sometime the quiet side is a good thing, especially if we listen early in the morning. LOL Thanks and have a great day!!

      Thank you, Nancy 🥰
      I appreciate the fact that most weekdays are okay with you if they’re a little on the quiet side … BUT I am telling you right now that tomorrow’s medley is going to be anything but quiet. 😍

      Thanks, Jim.
      I know you’re more of a “rock” guy so tomorrow should be right up your alley! 😍

    Have listened to a couple of times … wow, you did it again! I have seen documentaries on the Bee Gees and feel a lot of people don’t know how long they have been doing what they did nor the contributions they have made to music as singers, writers, producers and more! great way to end the medley with I feel good ……. so nice! Helped get thru a very long and stressful day!
    You have a wonderful evening and can’t wait for what you have for tomorrow!

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Penny. 🥰
      The Bee Gees get a lot of grief for their “disco era” but you’re right, they did contribute so much to the late 60s, and then became megastars in the 70s and 80s.
      I hope tomorrow’s music helps to get you through Friday! Have a lovely evening!

    Ditt0, what Mary Helen said. Mellow is always fine with me! So, on to rocking Friday.
