Trouble With A Capitol T

Way back when my mind was affected… I would never look at the word “trouble” the same way again.  Travis Tritt tried to alter my view in 1992 but The Music Man kept me locked in with “a capitol T and that rhymes with P and that stands for “pool.””

Here is the Trouble song from The Music Man…

And Travis Tritt’s attempt to sway me…

Goddess On A Mountain Top

Dutch rock band Shocking Blue in 1969 recorded the song Venus. It was a hit song for them in nine countries. In 1986 the band Bananarama recorded the song and revived it. Incidentally it was used as the opening to the Stars on 45 single in 1981.

Hear Me Roar

According to Oxford Languages lionize is to “give a lot of public attention and approval to (someone); treat as a celebrity.”

I also learned there is a rock band called Lionize.

But being my Dad’s daughter I love a good pun or play on words so this is my response to lionize…

A Little Bit Softer Now

Fandango’s word is lampoon… which of course makes me think National Lampoon. Now I was too into Mad Magazine to read National Lampoon before the magazine folded. But back in 1978 a film hit the screens that still remains a top comedy for me. As I look back on Animal House I recall the song that took the movie to lows and highs… Shout. I hope you enjoy this look back at Otis Day and the Knights during the toga party…

The Pot of Gold

I am hoping for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow… I am going through a doctor prescribed med change and sleeping a LOT. So I am falling further behind. In hopes to catch up I may do a couple of simple posts… this is one of them. This is a great version of this song from Wizard of Oz…

Mumbles …. Assume

Everyone knows it.  It popped into my head the first time I saw the prompt.  To assume makes this (ass) out of this (u) and this (me).  I feel like I have made an ass of myself the last week or so.  I have not had many creative juices flowing and have fallen behind again on my daily reading and prompts.  But if all goes as planned I will only be one day behind by the end of tonight.  And I am hoping I can catch that up before Friday.

So don’t go assuming I have vanished from Word Press it just isn’t true.  I am plugging away as best as I can.  Be prepared for a little more activity until I get squared away with the days.  In the meantime I need to go write some more.  I hope everyone has a great week!

Now enjoy this song with assume in it that I think is pretty relevant about now…
