The original Glenn Miller recording of this classic swing tune was the first song to win a gold record.



Pardon me, Roy. Is that the cat who chewed your new shoes? ;)

Bus driver, please look for me
'Cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see
I'm really still in prison and my love, she holds the key

Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Old Oak Tree. At least it would rhyme with the last line, and I don't know any other 70's songs about buses, prison, and love! :)



I think you got it!

Ding! Ding! Very Good!!

Yes, that's part of verse 2 (verse 1 would be too easy). According to the writer the song is a modern take on a letter written by a Civil War soldier who was being released from a POW camp in 1865.

And now, from the category "This Decade", name that song...

Yeah, my momma she told me don't worry about your size
She says, boys like a little more booty to hold at night
(That booty, booty, uh, that booty booty)
You know I won't be no stick-figure, silicone Barbie doll
So, if that's what's you're into then go ahead and move along

They're all still around and reunite on occasion for tours and concerts. The last time was a year ago at Christmas...

Now down on Rampart street at Willy's Den
He wasn't selling but a little gin
One cat wanted a bottle of wine
He hit that cat for a dollar and a dime

BUZZZZZZZZ!!!

Recent songs seem to have the highest difficulty level.

The song "All About That Bass" was co-written by Meghan Trainor who originally intended to sell it to another artist but ended up making it her debut single.

And now, in the category "Broadway Hits", name that song...

Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy's rich and your ma is good-lookin'
So hush, little baby, don't you cry

There are plenty of ways that you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground
You can beat him, you can cheat him
You can treat him bad and leave him when he's down

Okay, nobody knows:

Now down on Rampart street at Willy's Den
He wasn't selling but a little gin
One cat wanted a bottle of wine
He hit that cat for a dollar and a dime


?

Here are some more lyrics:

Down in New Orleans where everything's fine all them cats is drinkin' that wine
Drinkin' that mess to heart’s delight when they get drunk start fightin' all night....


Now I've got a nickel if you got a dime let's get together and get a little wine
Some buys a gallon some buys a quart
When you buy blackberry you're doin' things smart....

I was on a boat today and heard this song play. Haven’t been following this thread so sorry if my posting is against thread etiquette.

I’m not sorry
Or if this song was posted already.
Sorry, not sorry.


Everybody wants a thrill.
Paying anything to roll the dice just one more time.

I don't think anyone ever answered this one.
