Weekly Song Challenge Week 28 – My Second Attempt

This is my second week of this challenge. Again, the topics were inviting. This week I am going Old School.

The Rules

  • Copy rules and add to your own post, pinging back to this post.
  • Post music videos for your answers to the musical questions.
  • Tag two people to participate!

1. Post a video of a song that reminds you of a loved one.

El Paso, recorded by Marty Robbins. My mom loved this song.

2. Post a video of a song that mentions a food or drink.

Haunted House written by Bob Geddins, originally recorded by Johnny Fuller and performed here by Jumpin’ Gene Simmons:

3. Post a video of a song that talks about rain or sunshine.

The Rain, The Park and Other Things cowritten by Artie Kornfeld and Steve Duboff recorded by The Cowsills:

 


Consider yourself tagged if you wish to play along. That’s what I did.

    1. Pete, it is not a requirement of the challenge, but I am happy to share.

      My mom was a big fan of classic country music. Marty Robbins, Eddie Arnold, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams. I always felt many of these classic country songs were reminiscent of the classic poetry Mom always read to us: The Wreck of the Hesperus, The Highwaymen, Annabelle Lee. They were great stories – all.

      The Haunted House was just a fun song of my youth. It still gets played here a lot around Halloween. The stanza about food definitely fit the prompt, but it is not a typical food song.

      The Cowsills were a family group (I might classify as ‘bubblegum music’) and also reminiscent of my adolescent years. They were a favorite of my sister and had three songs that I recall as their ‘hits’ the other two being “Indian Lake” and the song “Hair” from the broadway musical.

      All three spark warm memories of another place and time.

  1. Very good choices! I’ve heard the El Paso song many times, and the Cowsills songs are always good.
    I hadn’t heard the Haunted House song in a very long time … always did like it. Thanks! 🙂
