Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : TURN THAT SONG OFF! THIS ISN'T PART OF OUR REVOLUTION!!!!

TURN THAT SONG OFF! THIS ISN'T PART OF OUR REVOLUTION!!!!

What led us into the 1960's Music Revolution? The 1950,s. If you weren't there please take a moment to watch this presentation by SergeantPepper27, Emily Maddox, and enjoy the transition that was so spectacular to witness and enjoy...

The 1960,s was a very special time for me. I was a child and the entire world was a learning experience. My friends and I were wide eyed, curious, feeling the freedom to let go and dance to the music. During the summer of 1966 in little Edinburgh Indiana the pool parties were going strong! I could crack the storm windows in my bedroom and hear the music wafting through the neighborhood with a beat that was calling me to turn to my wild side and let it all loose. Of course I would only have to crack the window once or twice during the summers...if I were grounded. Yes, that phenomenon did occur so I would dance in my room. Otherwise, I was right there eating out of the bands hands...dancing, twirling, feeling the beat and feeling so free and young and perfectly wonderful and full of music.

I grew up in the time of the "basement" bands. Everyone had one. And, at least at the time, they all seemed pretty good to me. Life was good and our lives seemed to be centered around music.

WLS Chicago was the most progressive radio station on the US Airwaves and I was lucky enough to pull the station in strong! The music was fantastic, innovative, progressive and heavier than the earlier Beatles, Buddy Holly and Elvis.  We were beginning to hear what I called "real" rock and roll. Chicago, Louie Louie, Jefferson Airplane, Janice Joplin and more and more songs and artists found their way into our lives. Every Sunday evening I would get my shower, crawl into my pj's and plop in front of our black and white TV and watch Ed Sullivan.

I love the fact that my memory can take me back. Back into my little living room with my mom and dad and Ed and other greats such as Elvis, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Monkeys, Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Four Seasons...and yes, I do remember them!

How cool is that?

Ed Sullivan moved on and later in the 1960,s came my favorite show! Talk about walking on the wild side. It taught us some of the greatest music in history. It taught me a new twist in humor and made me laugh out loud. It provided roll models and humor and fun. And how to wear mini-skirts and wear flowers in our hair and made it mandatory to get our ears pierced...

Speaking of piercing ones ears...here it comes...I was hoping I wouldn't have to do this. This has been so much fun and I've enjoyed reliving the greats but JASON CROUCH is making me do this and for that I humbly apologize....really. Really. I mean really.

Here comes the absolute WORST, OBNOXIOUS, TASTLESS, DISCUSTING, DISTURBING, WASTE OF BREATH AND TIME AND LACK OF TALENT EVER TO BE DELIVERED TO THE BIG SCREEN.....

HOLD YOUR EARS OR MUTE the PUTE...but it's worth watching till the end for the glimpse of Goldie...

Will you ever forgive me for this?





Now, there simply is no song worse than this...

And, to show you why I loved this show...Rowan and Martin's Laugh In, I am including a short of the end of this particular segment. At the end they all had so much fun and it still makes me laugh today.



I hope you enjoyed this...most of it anyway. Later in the rain~Deb

Love that music can take us back, make it seem like yesterday is now, evoke the feelings we had then as if it is today.  Loved WLS and all the music they played.  Remember driving to Chicago and being so excited when we got into Wisconsin and would be close enough to get it!  or reading late at night in MSP and it would come through.  thanks for the memories!

Debra:  Oh... how coul you say such a thing ?  A waste of breath... no way my dear.  What a treat... watching this "schtick."  Rowan and Martin were really great... just watching the looks on their faces as they helped Tiny Tim take his Ukulele our of it's case... and then play his "Tiptoe" song for us.  This was about as perfect a performance... (including all three of them) that I can remember.  Way back then... it seemed like the entire country was just glued to the TV the night that Laugh In was on.  Thanks for sharing.

And then you shared with us Part II.  An entire Laugh In skit.  I so miss so many of those "weekly players."  A prime example of how all of them put together added up to much more than the simple sum of their parts.  What a great treat.  Thanks again.

Alexsandra, I'm glad you recognized WLS Chicago! It was the BEST and the COOLEST...once I moved to Texas I had to go back to the wild wild west and listen to them cry in their beer.

Karen Anne, I'm so glad you enjoyed this! When I read Jason's post I knew immediately the song that should never be sung. OOOOPPPPSSS...I didn"t mean to say that! You liked it! Silly girl. I've always loved Laugh In.

Deb... that's just cruel. I am going to have to figure out a way to get Jason and the gang for this contest.  I'm still reeling from the last earworms tunes they had us all dig up.  haha  I will forgive you, but you might not forgive me when I find time to get mine up.  What oh what horrible tune will I unearth. :)

Posted by Jesse & Kathy Clifton, Retired (Jesse Clifton & Associates, REALTORS®) almost 10 years ago

Jesse, you are not allowed to replace that nasty high-pitched sweet sounding devastatingly beautiful song with any other. I think I want it reeling through my thoughts as I go find my ax...I don't mean the Cologne...

:-) Deb

BTW, are you always up this late? I'm gonna regret this in the morning...oh yeah, it is morning. It's Jason's fault.

Posted by Deb Brooks (Brooks Prime Properties Wichita Falls Texas) almost 10 years ago

Deb.... Since it's late night with the laptop I didn't catch the TipToe but can still recall the silly shreek...  Now get some sleep!

Yes Dan...off to bed. Nighty night. Deb

BTW -- loved Laugh In also!  So funny and frenetic. really cutting edge at the time -- along with Smothers Brothers!

Posted by Alexsandra Stewart, Broker - Portland Oregon Real Estate (Remax equity group) almost 10 years ago

Well.  I didn't listen.  I don't have speakers on.  I can't stand noise coming out of my computer.  However, the old memory banks remember the wonder of the Beatles and Janis and others.  Great music that will last forever.

Deb - I LOVE IT!!!!! This is a fantastic post and brings back so many memories for me! Laugh In had to be one of the best shows ever!
Posted by Leesa Finley, RED Properties - Raleigh NC Real Estate (RED Properties) almost 10 years ago

Wow, I think I gave it about 7 seconds of noise before I had to turn it off!

Posted by Jeremy Blanton, Myrtle Beach REALTOR®- myrtlebeachhomesblog.com (Myrtle Beach Homes Blog) almost 10 years ago

Alexsandra, the Smothers Brothers are performing here this weekend in Crockett Texas. Their posters show their pics and state the show has NEVER changed. Their pics haven't either! Don't think we're going to catch it sorry to say.

 

Lenn, you didn't have to listen to conjure that atrocity up in your mind...I didn't anyway. This is one I want to forget.

 

Leesa, you're too young to remember Laugh-In.

 

Jeremy, you're braver than Lenn! Keep smiling...enjoyed your show today. Later in the rain~Deb

Deb, I love trips down memory lane. We had those basement bands too...and Twiggy, paper dresses and wishing I could get to San Francisco somehow--with a flower in my hair of course. Bob Dylan and so much more, they were wonderful times.

Carol, I remember the paper dresses....do you remember the panty hose boots for really short dresses? I owned a pair and I wish I still had them. We put them on just like panty hose but they were one giant pair of boots.... and then there was the fall....remember the long hair pieces that attached at the headband? I was in Ulta the other day and they're back! OOOOHHHHH they're back.....freaky. Good to hear from you my friend. Deb

I dont know what you are talking about I LOVED IT.. and now Im going to 'tip toe.. threw the widow'...

John Cannata....we have to talk. You cannot like that! You make me want to say "shut up!", "get out of town" and every other "whatever" I can think of!

I shall assume that sarcasm is at times difficult to read! Silly boy.

Ahhh...  watching Laugh-In with my dad and cracking up!!  I was still a pre-teen but I loved it!  Tiny Tim, I could do without as well!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Hi Deb...Even I was young at that time.  In fact I was living in Italy beginning in 1967 and visited London.  Don't forget the mini skirts and colored stockings.  At least we were wearing them over there.  We thought we looked wonderful.  So mod...yes, that was the term.

You really had the audacity to bring that song back to haunt us?  You are one brave cookie.

Deb, OH WOW!!!   Tiny Tim and Tiptoe Through the Tulips!!!  It's the first song I thought of when I read Jason's post last night. 

I don't remember the panty hose boots???  I do remember the falls -- hair on a hairband.  They're back???  You saw some???  I'll have to go to Ulta to see them.  I remember the paper dresses and the shift and the tent dress.  :)

OMG - That was a blast from the past!

Posted by Carol Culkin, Overland Park (Reece & Nichols) almost 10 years ago

Bill, don't get me wrong here....I was a child also but these moments were a huge factor helping to determine my personality and wish for the future. I know you know what I mean. It's wonderful to think back about laughing together ... huh?

Yep. John, oh I remember it! What was his name? Gary Coleman...darn I'm good. I still see him around and he still looks identical to the character in the show. He never grew because of Nephrosis...kidney disease. What a guy!

 

Katy Kat, I caught the end of the mini skirt scene. But, by the time I was 17 I was wearing a dress that is today a blouse...he,he,he, and what stockings? OOoooPPs.

JuJu, yuk to Tim. what a gimmick. I remember it all. Hey, let's get together and go buy falls!Why not?

 

Carol, yes it is. Gotta love blasts. Later in the rain~Deb

I find it 'very interesting' that Tiny Tim not only recorded this garbage, but parlayed it into a long and somewhat storied career. With out Tiny, theres no Miss Vickie! What a lucky gal! Sock it to me!!

Posted by Scott Geary, Your Pennsylvania Mortgage Source (Infinity Home Mortgage Company Inc) almost 10 years ago

Scott, it's amazing isn't it? What garbage. Oh yeah, and "sock it to me 2". He,he. Deb

I think that we could use some more of the Laugh-In time on TV.  Now those were the days.

OMG!!!! I used to play in a band that shared a bill with Tiny Tim and Joe Ely at the SAME show...How incredibly weird is that.

PS I really enjoyed that youtube video, THANKS!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (Realty Austin, Austin Texas Real Estate) almost 10 years ago

Debra - Although I do recognize this song's annoying possibilities, for some reason I've always had a soft spot for Tiny Tim.  He was kind of the Weird Al of his time.

Posted by Matt Stigliano (Kimberly Howell Properties (210) 646-HOME) almost 10 years ago
Don, I agree with you about seeing Laugh In. There are certain "feel good" shows that will always make me laugh including The Three Stooges. Loved them. Russell, You did? What band did you play in and what did you play? I knew you were a musician when I saw you! Matt, he's dear to my heart for the memories....but the song....yuk. Holiday Hugs, Deb

Hi Deb.  Congrats on the win.    I kinda liked Tiny Tim, lol.
