How about an easier Country song?

It wasn't me who started that old crazy Asian war,
But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chore.

Easy.

Age of Aquarius


Ding! Ding! Winner!

From the musical "Hair" with The 5th Dimension getting the hit single. Although it's dated, this song keeps popping up every five or ten years. It's just one of those tunes that captures its new age era. In fact, the term "New Age" refers to the dawning of the age of Aquarius.

Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

From the category "Worst Ever Lyrics in a Hit Song"

and I feel like a-lovin' you
Love, you're such a sweet thing,
Good enough to eat thing
And it's just a-what I'm gonna do

Ooh love to hold ya, ooh love to kiss ya
Ooh love I love it so, oh love you're sweeter
Sweeter than sugar
Ooh love, I won't let you go



It was called Bubble Gum music. In the 60s it appealed to what we now call tweeners: old enough to buy music, but not really old enough to understand it. These guys, The 1910 Fruitgum Company, The Archies, Tommy Roe, The Royal Guardsmen, Tommy James and the Shondels.... “Yummy Yummy”, The Ohio Express.


I make Spotify playlists from ‘60s Billboard Top 40 charts.



Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

The full name of the song was "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy I Have Love In My Tummy." Yes, I own a 45 of it, up in the attic.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

From the category "Sinatra Standards", name that song...

Doesn't like crap games with barons or earls
Won't go to Harlem in ermine and pearls
Won't dish the dirt with the rest of the girls
That's why...

Here's an oldie from the 50's:

Now Dooley had a feeling we were going to war
So he went out and enlisted in a fighting corps
But he landed in the brig for raising such a storm
When they tried to put him in a uniform

And from the category "Classic Rock", name that song...

Well now you step inside but you don't see too many faces
Coming in out of the rain they hear the jazz go down
Competition in other places
Uh but the horns they blowin' that sound
Way on down south
Way on down south
London town

Steely Dan, but I don't think that's right. Aja was a great album though
