Musical Minutia

Contributed by softerware on Sunday, 26th May 2019 @ 07:37:09 AM in AEST
Topic: Event

Lets start at the start; and lead with the best! In the US the very first CD pressed
Was Springsteenís victory all the way; His album BORN IN THE USA.

Otis Redding forgot his lines, And that is why his whistling whines
In place of words each time we play, SITTING ON THE DOCK OF THE BAY.

I WRITE THE SONGS a fib you know, The Beach Boys wrote it, not Manilow.
Song writers of THAT 70S SHOW Get $70 per play to go!

Neil Diamond had a valentine, When he wrote SWEET CAROLINE.
Cause Diamond was a loyal fan, Of children of the Kennedy clan.

Elvis sang 800 songs. And to him they all belong.
Amazing Mrs. Presleyís son, never wrote a single one.

As Christmas í62 drew near; A nation sang in mortal fear: DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR?
Not describing Christmas niceness: but the Cuban Missile Crisis.
A prayer to nations not to fight . The TAIL AS BIG AS A KITE? A nuclear missle plume in flight.

Youre reading this cause voices shared: PRAY FOR PEACE PEOPLE EVERYWHERE.

The reason DJs chose to list , 40 weekly record hits
Began because in days of old; Thats all that jukeboxes could hold.

Michael Jackson always chose; To sing the notes when he composed.
No instrument could help they say, cause Michael never learned to play.

JINGLE BELLS commands first place. As the first song played in space
Astronauts sang to us live, From Gemini 6 in Ď65

One last obscure fact - then will go;
Heres one few other people know!

Thurl Ravenscrofts an unknown name; But you have heard him just the same.
If you have ever watched the GRINCH; He sang for Karloff in a pinch.
Poor Boris couldnít sing a note! But while were on the subject folks,
Thurl is better known as GRRRRREAT!;
The voice of TONY TIGER, mates!

You are the queen of schoolhouse poetry!
No doubt!

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
