Revised '60's / '70's era song titles...


Recommended Posts

As we, the Baby Boomers, get older, maybe we should revise some of our old favorite song titles to keep the relevent to our changing realities. A few suggestions that were emailed to me by a friend:

 

Herman's Hermits

"MRS. BROWN, YOU'VE GOT A LOVELY WALKER"

 

The Bee Gees

"HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HIP"

 

Bobby Darin

"SPLISH, SPLASH, I WAS HAVIN' A FLASH"

 

Ringo Starr

"I GET BY WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM DEPENDS"

 

Roberta Flack

"THE FIRST TIME EVER I FORGOT YOUR FACE"

 

Johnny Nash

"I CAN'T SEE CLEARLY NOW"

 

Paul Simon

"FIFTY WAYS TO LOSE YOUR LIVER"

 

Commodores

"ONCE, TWICE, THREE TIMES TO THE BATHROOM"

 

Marvin Gaye

"I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPE NUTS"

 

Procol Harem

"A WHITER SHADE OF HAIR"

 

Leo Sayer

"YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE NAPPING"

 

The Temptations

"PAPA'S GOT A KIDNEY STONE"

 

ABBA

"DENTURE QUEEN"

 

Any additions to the list folks? :)

Not directly related to this ... I worked with a singer who would sing (My Way) ... I did it sideways.

No guitarists were harmed during the making of this message.

 

In general, harmonic complexity is inversely proportional to the ratio between chording and non-chording instruments.

Revision of Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue":

 

What you thought was oh, so cool is now real lame;

The violence you shunned is now a video game;

Those faded bells hid in your bottom drawer;

Don't seem to fit as loose as once before;

Those plastic-rimmed bifocals spell your doom;

That it's all over now, BABY BOOM!

 

Your empty headed Father's sounding like a sage;

At times you swear the two of you are the same age;

The music that the elevator plays;

Are all the songs from your old rebel days;

That cubicle you work in is your tomb;

Ah, it's all over now, BABY BOOM!

 

The daughter you saw born is pregnant with her third;

The son you once taught art is a computer nerd;

Your Goodyear sandled friends who played the blues;

Are walking high-rised halls in Florsheim shoes;

That young, pretty flower-child bride has lost her bloom;

And it's all over now, BABY BOOM!

 

That shoulder lenghth, dark wavy hair is fading fast;

And whatever's left of your own teeth, just hope they last;

The mescaline you thought helped make you think;

Has turned into the Metamucil drink;

You're not as hip as you'd like to assume;

'Cause it's all over now, BABY BOOM!
