Lives change, people change, hairstyles change (one SSG credit for the first to name that reference! :D ), and so do the songs that fit our lives. What song best encapsulates [sp?] your experiences and stuff for that particular day? One per day per customer, please.

With the fires in CA raging outta control, I thought the Eurythmics' "Here Comes the Rain Again" [or Phil Collins' "I Wish It Would Rain Now" ... can't decide] would be helpful.

Wendy by the Association would be entirely inappropriate these days :hurt:

"The Tiki Bar Is Open" by John Hiatt.

No particular reason why.

[rockin']Whatever the 2nd track is called on the "Beyond" album by Dinosaur Jr. will do fine for today. [/rockin']

I've had En Vogue's "Free Your Mind" running through my head the last few days.

When I play a song for the students to analyze, it sticks with me, especially playing it multiple times that day, so the most recent one is now "Rain on the Scarecrow" by JC-JCM-JM.

p.s. No one's guessed my reference in almost 2 years? :pleased: (but the reward for the SSG credit, whatever the heck that is, has expired :()

Great song. Lots of meaning (for farmers) You teach Civics, History, English, Philosophy?

"She's come undone" by The Guess Who has been in my head lately, remembering a girlfriend in my college days who went crazy.

I'll bet that person who started those fires is thinking of "Firestarter" by Prodigy.

I just mentioned it the other day in the '70's or '80's thread. Kiss' "I was made for loving you," came on my ipod today.

Great song. Lots of meaning (for farmers) You teach Civics, History, English, Philosophy?Yes, yes I do. :rolleyes: The door says "English," but like those old Reese's Peanut Butter Cups commercials, the students get a little history, art, science, business, etc. mixed in with their language arts. We're a couple chapters from finishing The Grapes of Wrath,, so there's the "ROTS" connection (and I noticed the Revenge of the Sith/Rain on the Scarecrow similarity when I put the acronym on the board that day).

That's what's cool about English. It can also include literature and a great many other things.
I aced English in HS. The teach liked me though.
He really enjoyed it when we all got an assignment to do a speech subject up in front of the class, and I chose "Purgatory." What it's definition was, how it originated. I caused a controversy in class with some Catholic students when I said you basically have to pay your way out of it to get to heaven. I could see the teacher over there smiling. He liked controversy, but he simply hated Elvis. I never brought him up.

Song of the day, well yesterday I was singing it to my sister:

Georgia Satellites: "Battleship Chains"
"You got me tied down with battleship chains, fifty foot long and a two ton anchor"

I have no idea why, but for most of this week, I've had "Blue Bayou" stuck in my head. "And those fishin' boats..." :upset:

Bel Cam which version of Blue Bayou? Roy Orbison or George Lucas old flame Linda Rondstadt?

That would be the chick. ;) Maybe it's the semi-SW connection, then.

Wow, almost three years to the day since a post in this thread.

I've had "Moves Like Jagger" in my head, but that's from reading the "Baldo" comic strip, where the little girl butchers any song she tries to sing. :eek:

Lately, the Scorpions' "Winds of Change" has been whistlin' through the airways.

From the wow-haven't-heard-this-in-ages department: "Sidewalk Talk" by Jelly Bean (with backup by Madonna).
