No government in the 12,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

Always nice when others join in, thanks gang, as you know I am not an expert on the era, just a fan. Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge on the era. I learn a lot and have fun doing so. Pray your Thanksgiving Day was a good one.

I just heard a great song from the 60s on the radio.

“Go Ask Alice” by Jefferson Starship.


Grace Slick sure could sing.

Awesome stuff Pookie, I didn't know that Mason Williams song was the original, I had only heard the Steamroller cover. Great stuff and even the kids came in to listen.

I didn't care for the Hang em High song, but never have seen the movie and now I want to. Time to visit my friends in low places (and they say likewise of me) and come up with a copy to watch tonight.

Cheers for the great music and movie suggestion my friend !

I believe that Mason Williams was the musical director on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour; I may have seen him debut the song on their show.

I'm pretty sure I saw Hang 'em High. Can't recall the details, but expect that any Clint Eastwood movie of that time to be violent.

If you need a link to the movie pm me Pookie.... Looks like it will be just as you surmised. A mean revenge story... **grins with delight**

Edit: Got to watch it yesterday. I was ok, I have seen better. I give it a 6.5 out of 10 rating. Ending was a little flat.

Darlene Love's Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) is a very good Christmas song; she sang it on the David Letterman Show for many years in a row. I saw her in concert in the early 90s which I really enjoyed; got to speak to her & got her autograph.

Here are a few of the songs on which she can be heard:

I agree with your assessment of the Christmas song by Darlene, best one on the album in my opinion. Going in my holiday rotation. Just great mix of lead vocals, background vocals, Piano, bells and that sax player.. perfect flow...

When I saw her in the 90s, it was a one-woman show. She also told many stories. One was about her love affair with Bill Medley of The Righteous Brothers...

I  found a radio station that plays only 60s songs and one that plays only 70s. Been listening to the only 80s one for over a year but I’ve been enjoying going back and forth between the other two now when I’m in the mood for which ever decade.

The 60s station is good because they hardly ever play Beatles or Stones, they concentrate on every other band. Except today obviously, they are playing 24 hours on both stations of Beatles.

In the car, I have Sirius-XM. I listen to the 50s station (which actually goes up to, but does not include, The Beatles) & also their 60s station.

Thanks Pookie, I always liked Hawaii Five-O song, but preferred the orchestra version for some reason. It is amazing what they (Ventures) got those guitars to do back then.

Noticed on Freya's thread that "The Zombies" got nominated for Hall of Fame status... I dug up an album or two by them... so I would be better in the loop.
