Name that Tune

Recommended Posts

New song:

 

I was just 13 you might say I was a musical proverbial knee-high

When I heard a couple new sounding tunes on the tube and they blasted me sky high

Then the record man said everyone is a yellow sun record in Nashville

And up North there ain't nobody buy 'em and I said, but I will

Well there's sixteen thousand eight-hundred twenty-one mothers from Nashville

All their friends play music and they ain't uptight if one of the kids will

Because it's custom make for any mother's son to be a guitar picker in Nashville

And I sure am glad I got a chance to say a word about the music and the mothers from Nashville

Going with the Nashville line, let's try

Nashville Cats by the Lovin' Spoonful?

Well yeah, when you go with the Nashville line you would get Nashville Cats.  You've heard it, right George?

Yes, but I don't remember the tune.

New one:

From the park you hear the happy sound of the carousel
You can almost taste the hot dogs and French fries they sell

George

Oh hello.

 

Pretend the water is champagne and fill my glass again and again.

IIRC, that's Howard Jones and "Life In A Day."      (If I recall poorly, it might be "Life in ONE Day"  and I may have the artist wrong.)

"We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty, cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there.

With a few red lights and a few old beds
We made a place to sweat.
No matter what we get out of this,
I know, I know we'll never forget."

Wasn't it Deep Purple who did "Smoke On The Water"?

Yeah it was.

It was, and that's the title and artist for this song.    Your turn.         Did you know that song was based on an actual event, a fire at a studio by a lake shore?
