9:02am Jeff:The revolution will not be televised
(it will be broadcast on WFMU)
9:03am dale:love this - didn't raquel welch get attacked by them ad they had to peel them off of her back in the ship? ♥ 9:03am annie:good morning mr brainen!! GM fellow listeners! 9:03am dale:there's my answer ♥ 9:04am annie:oh, dale!!! on my way to WWF.. 9:05am scott:'Antibodies' sounds also used on several episodes of 'Lost in Space'. 9:08am SmokinJ:Nothing like a little Miller in the morning... 9:09am guy mauve:More hollerin`, please
♥ 9:09am annie:i love that a song's musical into can trigger a sweet memory.. 9:12am WilliamfromDumont:Mornin' all. Last Sat. seems like a million years ago. 9:12am Stuart Rose:This traffic song sounds like an early David Bowie song.
Good morning, Brainacs near and far,
9:18am guy mauve:Where are my manners?
Yes, a good morning, to one and all.
♥ 9:20am melinda:morning everyone. 9:22am dale:i only knew the perry como version of this. ♥ 9:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- & the English Beats'. & Andy Williams'? ♥ 9:32am melinda:I think I first heard English Beat and was subsequently surprised to discover the Andy Williams. 9:34am dale:i was wrong - meant andy. same catatonically smooth voice, though ♥ 9:38am melinda:Catatonically smooth, haha 9:41am WilliamfromDumont:I'm not ashamed to admit I love Spanky & Our Gang's take on Suzanne. ♥ 9:46am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:It's funny - the stuff we used to think utterly Fuddy - now it's like - good crooner, nice guy!, good song choices...even Lawrence Welk had actual Jaz on it I suspect... ♥ 9:47am melinda:I haven't heard the Spanky & Our Gang but I love Judy Collins's version. Hard to go wrong with Suzanne, though I'm sure someone could ruin it. ♥ 9:49am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:...even the cheap garbage & the background music was such a different Culture from now - the 'music of our unconscious' I think Hal Wilner said in some Bugs Bunny Carl Stalling liner notes... ♥ 9:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:...there was Jazz to be heard as 'incidental' music...Lo, how the 20th Century recedes! 9:52am Stuart Rose:Yes, Melinda, the Judy Collins version is the gold standard. So beautiful, like her Who Knows Where the Time Goes. ♥ 9:52am Fuzzy:Tossed salads and scrambled eggs. ♥ 9:54am melinda:@Stuart: I also love her version of Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, maybe because it's the first one I heard. ♥ 9:54am annie:the only other version of "Who Knows..." that i swoon over is Kate Wolf's cover.. ♥ 9:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Judy Collins literally shoved Leonard Cohen on stage to start his performing career. ♥ 9:54am annie:@Fuzzy: i love that^ 9:56am iff:is Cecelia the earliest occurrence of the lyrics "down on my knees, begging you please"? the same phrase can be found on probably 100s of songs. ♥ 9:58am melinda:Bridget St. John also did a great Suzanne. ♥ 9:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:A good obvious rhyme & a time-honored Blues trope I wager. 10:02am Stuart Rose:Ah, that one, too, Melinda.
Judy was probably the greatest interpreter of songs in that period- something like 4 or 5 beautiful albums in a row.
♥ 10:03am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Judy covering 'Both Sides Now' was a major very early boost for Joni too (of course). ♥ 10:04am melinda:She really was. I only have one album, In My Life. ♥ 10:05am melinda:Great film. 10:05am StuBot:good show man. very different. WFMU needs different. ♥ 10:05am melinda:I like hearing all the Gravy Waltzes. 10:10am StuBot:haha...it's different because I was listening to 89.5 WSOU :) oops. ♥ 10:10am Brian in UK:Hello Bob.
@WilliamfromDumont totally agree with you about Suzanne. Some might find it a bit light but the harmonies do it justice.
10:14am Stuart Rose:Right, Rev. Judy knew quality when she heard it. She really had an ear for wistful and poignant songs. 10:15am iff:its up there with "take me by the hand, make you understand" 10:24am WilliamfromDumont:@Brian in UK. Yeah, it's definitely "produced", but I love it. ♥ 10:43am common:good day 10:47am SeanG:morning common. peace and love. :-) 10:56am Lynn F:It just so happens I haven't listened to FMU for a long time. I forgot how great Bob Brainen's show is! 10:59am gene sculatti:Listening live. "World's Greatest Sinner," Hot 9, "Painter of Women." Killer songs, segues.
