Throwback Thursday

It’s another day of rolling back in time to grab some music memories, including several songs I have never played in a medley!

It’s a variety of hard rockers and a few tender ballads. That reminds me. Tomorrow is Friday, the last Friday of summer so get ready for a “summer” medley!

By the way, I am officially asking for requests. Please send me 2 or 3 of your favorite songs from 1955-1995 and I’ll do my best to fit them in!

Memories … That’s What We’re All About

    Good day Ray 🙂 Saw the Guess Who with my friend Doris in the 80’s & I’ll always be a Mac Davis fan. The Rolling Stones song was their most country song so Ted brought up that Keith Richards had been invited to be on a country album & Mick Jagger hadn’t. I helped the 2 Teds do a compilation of car songs when the DJed at a car show. I convinced them to add “vehicle” to it. My stepson Ted E mentioned that he had enjoyed the fact that Richard Marx talked with the audience about the history of songs sung & things that happened during travels. As always, well done & thank you for the music & the memories. 🙂 Lee & the 2 Teds

      Thank you, Lee (and the 2 Teds) 🥰
      Mac Davis was such n underrated artist. He was a wonderful singer and songwriter. During his early career he wrote for Elvis Presley, providing him with the hits “Memories”, “In the Ghetto”, “Don’t Cry Daddy”, and “A Little Less Conversation”.

    Mornin’ Ray, another excellent medley with a few songs I hadn’t heard in a long time.
    The into to the Who song was unfamiliar however that doesn’t mean I hadn’t heard it in the past. LOL
    This week’s mornings have been an absolute pleasure. First to be alive and in no small part due to your music medleys.

      Thank you, Marty!
      Yep, that Who intro was a real blast from the past! LOL
      I am so glad you’re enjoying the music and I am so, so glad you’re alive!

    This was certainly different, and I guess my favorites would’ve been the moody, blues, Richard, Marx, and the Rolling Stones. Some of this music I didn’t listen to due to the time in my life when I was raising my sons, and my interests were elsewhere. Not to say that I didn’t love music, but I had a tendency to play older tunes at that time. I enjoyed this medley, although I must admit, it was not one of my favorites. Guess I’m still stuck in the old days! Thank you so much Ray, you’re the best! 🥰

      Thanks, Sandy 🥰
      I’m a little surprised because other than Richard Marx and the Moody Blues, all of these songs came from the 60s and 70s. But hey, it is what it is and I appreciate your honesty. I hope you’re feeling okay!

      Oh my goodness, Ray! What a delightful intro! Was that Shirley Temple, by any chance? Anyway, it made me think of her and prompted a fond memory. When I was a little girl, I would go with my Mom when she did dressmaking fittings at customers’ homes. We were at an apartment up off of Main St, and the woman had her TV on. A Shirley Temple movie was playing and it was the first time I had seen her, other than in photos. I’ve been a fan ever since. What a delightful memory! Thank you!
      I also loved the last song in this set, by the Moody Blues, who we saw in concert when living in Seattle.
      Bless you my friend!

        Thank you, Bonnie 🥰
        It wasn’t Shirley, but Amy Castle certainly sounded like her. That said, whether it was Shirley or not, the fact that Amy’s song brought back such a beautiful memory for you!

    Rockin’ this Tuesday morning. Nice to hear your voice again, Ray. Roger Miller’s song is quite depressing-a change for him. Love Mac Davis. Don’t hear him much on the radio these days. Now on to todays medley!

    1. Pat Conant

      Whoops, I mean Monday morning,LOL

    2. Ray (Post author)

      Thanks, Pat! Roger’s song peaked at #10 in the country chart and #34 on the pop chart. I’ll be adding more Mac as we go along!
