Every day, a song that is either stuck in your mind, one you love or hate, or perhaps even the song you heard most recently.

Today, it's "Just Dropped in (to See What Condition My Condition Was In)" by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition.

Woke up this morning with this in my head, started whistling it and here we are...

Journey: Kohoutek




It always takes me to another place.
(And reminds me of what an monster Dunbar is. I'm pretty sure he's using just a single kick drum.)

Welcome back, Jim. I'll dedicate this song to you. (And many times to my husband.)

"Winds of Change"- The Scorpions from Thomas and
"When He Shines"- Sheena Easton from The Hue(s) Corporation. Nice songs, folks! I've never heard the Sheena one before, but I suppose it could describe many a fellow.

Be sure to include the title of the song and the artist. YouTube and the internet being more temporary than other things. smile

I've never heard of Journey's song "Kohoutek", though I have long adored R.E.M.'s song of the same name.

This morning I inexplicably woke up with the song Change of Habit stuck in my head. Yes, the Elvis-sung theme to the movie he starred in alongside Mary Tyler Moore (who played a nun - change of HABIT, get it?).

Cranking up ST:TMP to try to drown it out.

Ah, yeah that "Just Dropped In" is certainly the one that sticks in my head for hours every time I play my copy of the Big Lebowski soundtrack...

My, my, I remember the day when you, JP, signed off and said "Ta, Ta!" to this place.

Now look at you, posting daily! smile

So of course I thought of this song...

Was this memory of yours before or after I sent you those 1950s and early '60s scandal rag magazines? smile

I had to come back. Otherwise I might have missed out on your (seemingly) tonally neutral, yet suspiciously passive-aggressive posts like the one quoted above.

"....Bungalow Bill" was stuck yesterday.
The horror. The horror.

This was waiting in my sleeping brain, biding its time patiently for the moment that I woke up.
Now it won't leave. Thank you, Marc.

Tyrannosaurus Rex: "Dove"



A word of warning to the unfamiliar.
His guitar skills: rudimentary, but sufficient.
His voice: Larry The Lamb, but I'm drawn to the unique (even when it's bald-faced contrived).
His use of words: doesn't care what they mean, he chooses them for how they sound.

And yet I've been a fan as long as I can remember.

Haha. Great song Bill.

They pass through my brain quite often too.

This has been my earworm for the past month. Sorry, not a rock or pop song, but a beautiful Broadway musical song. Anthony Warlow has a stunningly beautiful voice, and the song is gorgeous. I hope to see this play someday.

Joan, do you have any thoughts about the Moody Blues version of that song?
Positive or negative, I'd like to know what you think.
Incidentally, in case anyone here doesn't know it, their version removes it from the context of the original story and they set it in a competitive sport environment.

For reference:

Roy Hamilton from 1961, heard it on SiriusXM 50s in the car a couple days ago and cranked it up:
